My name is Stuart and I live in Nottingham. I mainly do graphic work, pastels and paintings. In the past I've done work in cloth and other media. Topics I like doing include abstract, symbolic, nature.
Myself and a couple of friends have set up a small limited company, called Avona Ltd., through which we intend to promote our creative work.
I am originally from Manchester. I have always been interested in Art and Drawing. I started painting around July last year and I am self taught. I paint Pop Art style pictures of Rock Stars and Movie Stars (John Lennon, Jim Morrison, Oasis etc) and basically any famous person.
I use finest quality heavy box, triple primed canvas. The canvas is stapled
Art - Introducing Local Artist Karl Whiting
My name is irrelevant as I am just another face within the crowd at a gig,
lingering around, sketching like a madman or sitting back listening to the
music, surrounded by the ongoing atmosphere. My passions in life are art,
poetry and music as well as live gigs.
It's the only things in life you can have control over.
I have worked in music shops in Hull and Leeds plus Deejayed in

Last Thursday saw the launch of a 10 day exhibition called Primary Colours at Kingswood High School, Bransholme.

Art - The History of LSD Blotter Art Compiled by Rich Mills
Blotter Art is a term that refers to the artwork that liquid LSD is dropped onto.
The artwork is printed onto blotter paper and then perforated into tiny squares or
hits, which can be torn apart into easy to manage quantities.
In 1938 LSD-25 (or diethylamide

I became a self-taught painter at the age of 36 when living in a mediaeval
village in the French Dordogne.
Post-Impressionism had been my favourite kind of art for long before that.
I think it has a basic relevance that will never be exhausted.
Renaissance paintings are also very
Art Gallery - By Hull Artist Darren Rogers.
This is a series of photographs we'd like to present by Darren Rogers, an artist from Hull, East Yorkshire, England.
Darren has not only proven himself to be an incredible photographer - providing the most
brilliant galleries of live band performances
Opinions - Wacko Jacko RIP By Christopher Skolik
Since the death of Michael Jackson there has been much chatter about how we should forget the more troubling aspects and focus on the music.
To me that seems wrong headed and a waste!
His life may arguably prove the real art of this individual; he had the means and the psychology to change reality, and his physicality.
Like a Batman villain, living in a fun house as though a Scooby Doo phantom, drawing on the collective unconscious and its pop culture references,
Opinions - Hull City Council and the Concrete Jungle
Thought I'd share my thoughts with you over the council putting a car park where LAs is/was.
Glad to see our creative and pro-active council always thinking of exciting new ways to develop the city. Another car park will be great for the city: with more cars coming into the city centre we could employ some more traffic wardens creating more jobs and more revenue for the council.
Please don't pretend that
Opinions - Was Bob Quick 'Blunder' A Deliberate Smokescreen? By Michelle Dee
By now we will all have seen the disturbing images of Ian Tomlinson, the victim of an unprovoked assault by a police officer at the G20 Protest last weekend. Unlucky for the Metropolitan Police Force, news crews were filming at the time and caught the incident on camera.
Watching the Guardian's footage you can clearly see the officer stepping forward and the moment when the unsuspecting Ian Tomlinson
Opinions - COOL ! By Andrew Wastling
I woke up feeling optimistic about the future of the planet for the first time in many years
After eight wasted years of what amounts to government by a fascist junta of gangsters, crooks and warmongers - perhaps we can all hope that the US under Obama will now take a more progressive road and a lead on the environment for a change?
Opinions - Barack Obama By Lee Cassanell
Civilisations rise and fall. People live and people die but sometimes we are lucky enough to bear witness to moments of great historical significance, moments of pure hope and optimism for a better world and a better tomorrow.
The election of Senator Barack Obama has renewed my belief in the American public and the American ideal. It has renewed my belief that no matter who you are or were you come from,
Opinions - Dating Nightmare Part 2 By Leah Scarpati
I'm pleased to say that I have a different slant on the subject now. I'm so fickle...all it takes is a month of dating with a TDH rugby playing fireman and the dating garden's all rosy!
All the time I was complaining about the crap first dates with guys I very easily found something wrong with (often when there probably wasn't actually anything wrong with them); I wasn't really thinking too far ahead.
Opinions - Dating Nightmare Part 1 By Leah Scarpati
Why is dating such a nightmare?! I must admit I haven't really been on that many successful dates; I've only had 2 long-term relationships and 3 half-arsed attempts at them that didn't last more than five minutes. So in between those I've been on enough dates to be suitably apprehensive about how they'll turn out.
I've found that in my experience they go

Opinions - Lies And War Crimes By Michelle Dee
The words "weapons of mass destruction" were noticeably absent from the
speech by George W. Bush on the fifth anniversary of the Iraq invasion.
The apocalyptic rhetoric used to firstly motivate the political will
then move the might of the military forces was replaced by talk of
regime change and removing Saddam Hussein from power.
It is illegal to go to war in order to
Opinions - Censored By D R Callaghan
A few minutes ago I used the readers comments facility in the online Hull Daily Mail
to comment on the main story about the killing of Simon Murden.
Ironic is it not? that the police are unable to crack down on the alcohol-fuelled
yobs terrorising families, shopkeepers and the elderly, yet when faced with a
young man who needs medical attention they can pump six bullets into him
Opinions - The Sexuality of the 9/11 Attacks By Christopher Skolik
The Pentagon is itself a potent symbol of manhood and military virility.
It goes without saying that was an act of violent homoerotic self extinction and assault-as if the terrorists could not survive such an act of homoerotic penetration, their out dated belief system and self ideation would not allow it-no matter how metaphorical the act. Only the unification of sex and death could breach that gap.
