I’ve been working on this game for years, but haven’t been able to bring it completion so I made a kickstarter, I hope that visitors to the picturebox site will be able to have a quick look and see if they’re interested!
Following the logic and scientific ideas such as the food chain and evolution, let’s step into this drawing, have a walk around and see what there is to eat. Why are computer games so challenging?

1. Could you tell me a little about how you got into art / became an artist?
I was interested in art in my whole life, so it was never a question for me what I would choose as my profession. What is more I was attending a high school which was specialized in art, so it was pretty much evident.
2. Do you consider yourself first an artist or an illustrator?
I definitely identify myself as an artist, however the way I look at my work depends on the task required. If I get an order, I look at it as an illustrator, but if I work for myself I see it as a work of art.
Yes, I always have managed it like I said in my first answer.
4. How did you come to work in poster art?
Thanks to my works at university and my teachers’ recommendations I received most of my requests. Certainly I was interested in this type of art, so I was making poster arts with pleasure.
If you’re referring to influence, then I have to say that no one has influenced me; I never looked at anyone as my role model. Of course I look up to plenty of artists and their work, but knowingly my work has never been affected.
6. Had you seen any of the films you were illustrating for?
7. How much freedom were you given to interpret the films with your own visions?
Whole freedom, but of course the theme of the films was a great affect. However if the procurer wasn’t fully satisfied with the outcome, the artwork was rejected, but they never tried to tie me up through the working process.
8. Did your poster work stand out amongst your contemporaries?
I think yes. I was one of those artists whose work was all over the city through that period of time (in the 70s and 80s).
I’m always proudest at the latest one.
10. Anything you would like to add?
I made my posters with the same pretension as my paintings. It is important to add that my posters were created as paintings and the reproductions were made by those. This means, that I consider myself as a painter, like you asked in your second question.

Stef is hard at work on pieces for his forthcoming exhibition with Kitty Clark at The Anarchist’s Gallery, but he’s too shy to show anything yet so here’s a video of an important piece in progress.

Why not consider buying our new comic?
January 11th, 2013 by Leon Sadler
This is what happens when you try to do something that you wish you could do, instead of doing what you’re good at, or what comes naturally (
It’s not really worth doing anything with, but I wanted to put it somewhere because it’s so rare I manage to make any kind of comic!
it’s always nice to see a messageboard where innovators get loads of positivity support )

I decided to re-format my recent comic that was on here, because it reads better when u just scroll sideways, and I check on my phone and it’s easier to read when you’re on the move (or on the bog!!!)
So please read it again at: http://catthorpe.wordpress.com/2012/11/10/gelshots-the-truth/
