Cleric of the Malthusian Order of the Church of Social Darwinism

I doubt if anyone even remembers this one. I posted the pencil stage of this picture back in July of last year. I only got around to finishing it a short while ago. I haven't gotten round to giving it a title or writing up its background information yet, but it's a cleric of the Malthusian Order of the Church of Social Darwinism. The Order of St. Malthus has historically been the militant branch of the Church of Social Darwinism, but are also charged with various clerical duties. They are distinguished by their black vestments, as opposed to the Order of St. Galton, the highest order of the...

September 3290 Web Banner Advertisement for the PL-7000 tablet computer and the PL-7000 mini smartphone produced and marketed by Pulao Technologies Co. Ltd.

Hello all. This piece is entitled "September 3290 Web Banner Advertisement for the PL-7000 tablet computer and the PL-7000 mini smartphone produced and marketed by Pulao Technologies Co. Ltd." This picture actually appears within two of my other pictures that I've posted since June. I wonder how many people can find it? Aside from that, for those among you of a curious nature, Pulao is one of the nine sons of the dragon in Chinese mythology, and is often depicted on top of bells. Well worth researching, and finding out about the dragon's other eight sons. More information about this piece...

Billboard Advertisement for the Jorōgumo Corporation's January 3290 Advertising Campaign.

So, two weeks ago I posted the O-Suzumebachi Aerial Attack Drone, so this week I'm going to do a post about the company that makes it: Jorōgumo. It takes its name from a Japanese mythical creature, with "gumo" meaning "spider" in one version of the name. The little fellas swarming around the central figure are Tsuchigumo, a signature product of the company. You can learn more about Jorōgumo below. "... Jorōgumo is one of the youngest of the Obake Neo-Zaibatsu Conglomerates’ large corporations. Founded on 24 December 3258, it got its start when a group of robotics and computer enthusiasts, who...

O-Suzumebachi Aerial Attack Drone

Hello all. I don't know if you remember my post from the 28th July on Facebook. The one of the guy piloting a drone aircraft. Well, if you were, by any chance, wondering what kind of aircraft he was piloting, look no further. This is an O-Suzumebachi Aerial Attack Drone. O-Suzumebachi is the Japanese word for the Japanese giant hornet, or, to translate it literally, the "giant sparrow bee". Look them up, they're terrifying... More information on the O-Suzumebachi below: O-Suzumebachi Aerial Attack Drone. ... By 3280, having overseen a massive overhaul of the Obake Neo-Zaibatsu Conglomerates’...

Poster for the 3291 Academic Year Enrolment Drive entitled ‘Future’ for Toegye Seowon, featuring ChunHyang of the idol group Aim For Star.

Hello all. So this piece is connected to the last one I posted. It's entitled "Poster for the 3291 Academic Year Enrolment Drive entitled ‘Future’ for Toegye Seowon, featuring ChunHyang of the idol group Aim For Star". It advertises the school that you would have seen in the picture I posted on Facebook back on the 30 th June. Just to let you know (because not everyone who I've talked to about this picture got this) both of the women in this picture are ChunHyang; just an older and younger version. Chunhyang is a character from a Korean musical folktale (or pansori) called Chunhyangga. All of...

Sorry for not posting in such a long time, technical difficulties...

Sorry for not posting in such a long time, technical difficulties... Sufficed to say that the show Things are going to Slide with Kelly Ratchford at the Olivier Cornet Gallery went really well. A belated thank you to all who made it. I won’t try to fill in all the posts from Facebook and Instagram that I’ve done since the last one here. They’re all pieces from the show which I will eventually upload in their own album in the Gallery section, but until then you can check them out on my social media sites. In other news, I decided to part ways with the Olivier Cornet Gallery back in June. This...
