Cover artwork for the new Fyrnask album entitled "Fórn". Was a pleasure to work on this project and was able to explore some new approaches also. Check it out via the Fyrnask Bandcamp or Via Van Records!

Cover to the new SubRosa full-length album "For This We Fought The Battle Of Ages" which will be released late summer. Artwork and design by Glyn Smyth. The heaviest, darkest, and most dynamic SUBROSA album to date.

It's been a while since my last update but there's a few projects now in production which should see the light of day very soon! First off, I'm pleased to finally release my "Gathering" art print via my store early next week.

"Gathering" is a work inspired by Irish folklore and historical descriptions of magical practitioners or "cunning folk".

This will appear in the store at 6pm GMT on Tuesday 28th June.

(I'll also be listing some APs, rarities and other items previously listed as 'sold out' in case there's something older you missed out on)

Thank you!

Happy I found this thread. Smyth is one of my favorite artists and so underrated. Picked up his last AP of this Black Sabbath inspired piece directly from him recently. To me, it is the best I have seen as far as Black Sabbath works go. Richey Beckett close behind with his Wizard series. Got this framed up and waiting on wall space at the moment.

That is drymounting sharp!

I actually mentioned to Richey a little while back about how happy I'd be if he and Glyn did something together.

It is actually still available from Flood Gallery for a whopping £10! Been on the site for a couple years now, so they have been dropping the prices quite a bit. Really beautiful print.

Please post pics if you have a chance. Don't think I've seen any of the actual print.

Will do! Actually found a pretty sweet frame for it too.

Here ya go. The 2nd pic is a little blurry, but you can kinda see the design on the frame. I think it works well with this print and looks, um...metal :twisted:

No probs! With the £ as cheap as it is right now, you would be losing $ not picking them up!

Got the frame online from Arttoframe, given the awkward size...20x28.6" I think.
