Where am I?

Getting time to update this little bloggy blog can get tricky, but it's not fair for those of you who check back regularly! So I thought I'd give you a little insight as to what I've been doing and what you can expect to see in the coming months.

Ebook/ Dvd courses are coming! These are a little while off still as I'll be offering a four part series! The first part is almost finished, however it's aimed mainly at complete beginners - so much so that you shouldn't even have an airbrush when you begin reading it.
It offers insight as to the best and safest ways to set up your airbrush space, the best compressors to buy and the pitfalls to watch out for, what airbrush paints to look for and how to decide on the right airbrush.

Your very first airbrush project!
After all of the information cramming and airbrush buying on your behalf, it will take you through your very first airbrush exercise using stencils and templates, which you will cut out yourself!

Here's a sneak peak at your first airbrush project.

This chapter of the courses will be mainly reading, however I will also be offering a free tutorial and walk through of the eye.
The best thing for all of the followers out there is that I'll be offering this first chapter for free as it's aimed mainly at those wanting to get into airbrushing, but who have a million questions on where to start. Hopefully this book/ course will eliminate some of those questions!

'Yeah great, so you've done some silly book!! - WHY haven't you been BLOGGING??'

On top of the book, airbrushtutor is also expanding, along with the addition of recent tutorials and video tutorials we also have the growing forum which demands quite a bit of attention. The airbrush forum is really starting to uncover some amazing talent and offers great advice especially to beginners. Strongly recommend you check it out: the airbrush forum

'Yeah and what else?'

Recently on the forum I made a (not very) heartfelt post about my biggest weakness in airbrushing, my achilles heal. True fire.
I just can't do it, I don't understand it, I've practised for hours and it just seems to take forever to get better.
I don't find any tutorials that demonstrate how to create the shape - the colors are fine, that's the easy part but the shape?! Can someone teach me how to do that?
Well if you're asking that question then stay tuned because I'm developing what I believe could be one of the most helpful true fire tutorials out there.
I've been doing alot of reference study, I even nearly burnt down my garage capturing slick pictures of burning flames.. all in the interest of art.
See the fry pan in the picture? at the bottom?
No my girlfriend didn't see it either, but still managed to cook a mean sunday morning eggs with it.

So that's why I haven't been blogging.
But ask yourself this.. have you been spreading the love??
As always, much love and warmth to all those who take time to read this rant, peace and happiness to all.
