Hi Nicky. I'm currently studying at university and am currently undertaking a task where I have to create a hypothetical exhibition. I have select you as one of my artists, but I cannot seem to find some of the desired info I would like know. For example, have you been in any exhibitions in Australia? I've learned that you were in the Dead Space Exhibition in Paris (which is awesome). So yeah, any info you could give me would fantastic. Thanks!

Hi there, Thank you for letting me know. Sadly I've yet to give permission to anyone to sell my art on sweatshirts, I'm curious if you may be able to please send me their link? Sadly this sort of stuff happens everyday, it's such a shame people just bluntly steal the hard work of artists to sell, such a horrible concept, one that sadly is a struggle to police.
Thank you again for your support, I appreciate the time you took to let me know xx

Your work is simply amazing. I only found out who you were because the album art for Act IV: Rebirth and Reprise was so great. I enjoy looking at your work, so please continue.

Hey! Thanks a lot for allowing the submission of 'The Disappearing Man' and 'Lone Wolf' in the TMA-NewTalents group! If you haven't already, do check out the group info and blog, as your best submitted works will be entered in 'The Mad Artist' project, a free and new Facebook platform for talented artists. Will let you know when that happens, of course. :D  Keep in touch and keep creating!
