on deviant art years ago, we bonded over our love of the arts, and once in a while, cars.
Life, over time took me away from here, but we kept in touch over facebook, eventually, again, family and day to day life obligations took me away from that as well and i fell out of touch with Francis, but i knew his condition had progressed further. One time we chatted briefly over facebook, and i knew he was typing using his eye movement. i did not know if i wanted to put a strain on him more than he already had, but i knew Francis was not the type that would let something like that keep him from living. even if it was just keeping in touch with friends. I now feel very regretful, for letting work get in the way of keeping the company of friends.
He was.. insanely talented. Looking at the quality of the work he's done, it's easy to say he's reached a level of skill in his short lived life, t

First off--how are all of you doing?? I've had two sinus infections in as many months, so I've been more tired and less productive than I'd like... but I'm on the up and up, and keeping myself busy!
Did you guys read my Cat Café April fool's article? DeevElliott approached me with the idea for the article, it was super fun to write! spotted came back with some revisions, wanting more focus on art foods as well as demanding that dogs be allowed during the weekend. Reading the comments was super fun, even if I was home, sick, in bed that day.

Influences and suchI thought I'd take some time to spell out some of my influences for IRON and beyond. I'm not sure how interesting it is, but I'm doing it anyway! It's certainly more healthy than me railing on about folks who use my work without asking...Influences and such by JonathanWyke

My influences for this are pretty varied, and include Frank Bellamy, Francis Prior, Eric Rohmer, Claude Chabrol, Dale Mettam, Dave Elliot and Valia Kapadai amongst many others.
Frank Bellamy really influences all my work, and I suspect all the work I shall ever do. A brilliant draughtsman and a wonderful storyteller, he's also the reason I draw. Through Dan Dare, Heros the Spartan, Thunderbirds and Garth, Bellamy drew real people in fantastical situations.
Francis Prior is an archaeologist, specialising in the Bronze Age, who is I suppose best known for his appearances on Time Team. I find his approach to looking at the ordinary people of history inspiring, and despite the shift in time period to the Dark Ages, IRON is heavily influenced by that
