Meerkats at Dusk



As part of a Christmas present to my Dad and his Wife I said I would paint them something of their choice. They wanted a painting for their spare room, which is in purples, peaches and reds. My dad is a huge fan of meerkats, so it only seemed right to use them as my content.
I will post up a photograph of it in it's new home when I get a chance.

*Magic Mermaids*


T-shirt created for a mermaid lover. The shell and mermaid were drawn on in a nude/peach coloured shiney thread using a freehand machine embroidered technique.

I have made quite a few tees and bits for people in the past, I am trying to get them to send me pics so as and when I get them I shall pop them up.

PixiBones Shoo Shoos





Had a pair of shoes lying around that I didnt like the design on....decided to pop my own stamp on them, so in true Luce style my swirls have gone on.
Doodles on a different type of canvas :)

Curt Louis Films


I am currently in the process of doing the artwork for the cover of Curt Louis' first DVD. A short film he wrote, directed and edited over the winter months. I played my part in the film by supplying a crazy amount of lacewings which seemed to have taken a liking to my office (no lacewings were hurt during the making). Curt became very attached to these critters and has decided his logo is now a lacewing he drew.
Rene X ( + ∞ ) is slightly unusual, the point of the film is not really to be understood by the viewer. It is definatley worth a peek though, just dont't expect closure after the nine minutes!!

You can view his film on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C9Or8U-atvg

Or check out his blog for updates and news as well as the film: http://www.curtlouisfilms.blogspot.com/

I will post up the artwork once it is complete.

Silver Half Moon



Little box frame I painted with my swirls. Inside I hung a banner and a symbolic silver half moon.
I made this as part of a gift to a pirate.x
