“Buckley’s and None”

Bloody cultists. They’re everywhere—in this case, Central Australia, 1926. And we had Buckley’s of stopping them in time.

“Buckley’s and none” is an Australian phrase indicating a very small or almost impossible chance. “You’ve got Buckley’s”. William Buckley was an escaped convict who lived more than thirty years in the bush with the Wathaurong people. Later, Buckley & Nunn was a nineteenth century department store in Melbourne.

This is my first large canvas in Photoshop. I’m kinda proud, and have learned lots along the way.

The Ravens

Cecilia Winterbloom was courageous, sharp as a pin, and unwavering in her passion for the truth. We all knew it would end badly.

Circe Invidiosa

 

Circe (Κίρκη) is an immortal sorceress in Greek mythology, daughter of a titan and a nymph. In Ovid’s Metamorphosis, Circe is invidiosa (Latin for jealous) of the nymph Scylla, a rival in love, and so poisons the waters in which Scylla bathes, causing her to be transformed into a devouring sea monster. My render is inspired by seeing John William Waterhouse’s canvas of this scene at the National Gallery of Australia.
