New Wildlife art

A new category of art has just been added to this ‘ere website of love; ‘Wildlife’.

Back when I was a student, I spent hours drawing big cats. After a sabbatical, I’ve recently re-discovered my passion for these magnificent beasts.

Three brand new works are now available; ‘Relax’, ‘Stalker‘ and ‘Hunter‘.

And I’ve been fortunate enough to get up close and personal with lions and tigers (even a cheetah) as I once lived with three lion cubs. Here’s a younger me with the one Jen (my girlfriend and awesome artist in her own right) called ‘Tiny’. The cub that is.

Tiny is now a massive beastie, beautiful and lives in our friends private sanctuary in Kent. Check out The Big Cat Sanctuary. 

Humbled

As featured on MagicWeek, the UK’s leading online magic site; Jeff McBride’s Magic & Mystery School have recently invited Jay Fortune to join their faculty after another successful UK tour (co-produced by Jay). Larry Hass, the school Dean, said “I am so pleased to say that our friend Jay Fortune has officially joined the Magic & Mystery School team as one of our Guest Teachers! Jay brings so many talents to our team. He has a long career as a magician, but he is also a fine artist, producer, agent, and deeply experienced magic teacher. His knowledge of magic and magic business is extraordinary.” As Jay ‘retires’ as a successful performing magician after nigh-on two decades to focus on his art and writing, Jay says he has plans to work closely with the school to develop new projects and tours and constantly strive to excel in his lifelong pursuit of magic.
