:bulletblack: :bulletpurple: :skullbones: Cheerful Scorpion :skullbones: :bulletpurple: :bulletblack:
Greetings! I am an artist, illustrator and Joe of all trades currently based in the West Midlands, United Kingdom. Inspired by lots of things (namely pop surrealism, lowbrow art and manga), I love to produce delightfully twisted, surreal, fantastical artworks in a variety of different styles and mediums.

Scorpio Bindery - Handmade Books by cheerfulscorpion
Scorpio Bindery - Handmade Books
I changed my Etsy shop to Scorpio Bindery, where all my handmade books and bookbinding exploits are - I wanted to keep everything nice and separate from my illustration/artwork. I spent the past month making all of these and I'm really pleased with them (that's why my art has taken a hiatus!)

All of the books are hardcover books and have vintage style coverings (antique map designs, vintage wallpaper samples etc) and I even have a book I made with parchment style paper, perfect for a spellbook. 

Please check it out - etsy.com/shop/scorpiobindery

I revamped my Etsy shop and I've been busy making handmade books, please check it out - etsy.com/shop/scorpiobindery :D
Bullet; Purple Skull and Crossbones I'm Not Dead Yet Skull and Crossbones Bullet; Purple

Still alive - I'm sorry I've neglected Deviantart, been absolutely busy. I've been concentrating mainly on bookbinding for the past month and putting together a huge inventory of handmade books which I'm hoping to add to the Etsy shop in the next few days (I'm rebranding my Etsy and I'm keeping the bookbinding things separate from my artworks) I have been doing a few paintings, I still need to scan everything in at some point but if you want to find out what I've been farting around with lately you would be better off checking out my Instagram page - instagram.com/cheerfulscorpion and my bookbinding instagram is instagram.com/scorpiobooks

I am juggling lots of things at the moment - I don't want to jinx it but I am determined to finish off my TEFL course and maybe look for another teaching job for September - I'm trying to raise the cash together so I can afford to go. Got so many plans and backup plans! Hopefully I will sell these handmade books, I've been selling some of my worldly possessions for money. I'm available for commissions if anybody is interested, payment through PayPal, will work for a very reasonable price.

Synaesthesia by cheerfulscorpion
Synaesthesia

Synesthesia (also spelled synæsthesia or synaesthesia; from the Ancient Greek σύν syn, "together", and αἴσθησις aisthēsis, "sensation") is a neurological phenomenon in which stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway...

Holy baloney, I've done some digital illustration for a change *shock horror* Well, partially digital - I used some watercolour texture overlays from my university project. I want to do more like this for the time being - I've been extremely busy at work, I'm trying to save up some money to go on my next big wild adventure. Got to do these things while you are able to. Life is too short. Got to grab life by the horns and all that. When I'm not working I'm daydreaming and listening to music - wondering where I will end up next. 

Shaved my head for the summer - damn I miss my blue hair TT_TT

Libra by cheerfulscorpion
Libra
Keeping things in and balance - your order is my chaos and vice versa...

Getting back into a fantasy art groove again - I'm inspired again...I don't know - looking at the illustrations I've made over the past few months, just asking myself if it's true to what I am, is it the best I can do or was I just allowing myself to explore and make more happy accidents? I'm really ambivalent about the outlines, I want to try and not make the outlines so dark and brutal...

This kind of came about from dwelling on a Libra in my life - without wishing to go into details, we clash and have our differences. I would love to do more illustrations on the zodiac.
