You're George McFly!

With renovations still going on, my new studio is not yet ready and this means that its been months since I last did any art.

I love the personal feeling your art invokes, like the classic movie posters.

Will you be attending Perth supernova 2015?
MarkRaats Featured By Owner May 23, 2015
Thanks Will. Yes I will be in Perth and in Sydney. I'm giving an art Masterclass in both venues as well as being at my table during the day.
