Cosmic Wisdom'In England it's Christmas, the homes are ablaze with warmth, sparkling lights, flashing screens and gleaming smiles. But not all are feeling the love, as 1 out of 200 once happy locals have become like outcasts on their own turf, for whatever reason nobody knows, but at the same time many lie shivering propped up against card and sit praying on the streets of Brighton & Hove. Indeed in the streets there are many without, sitting alone in the cold and no hope of a warm brew as if there was a drought. But there really isn't, Starbucks on every corner and a swirling mist of cinnamon trailing the path of every businessman and self-righteous student.Part of the problem lies in the apparent lack of care with all attention diverted elsewhere, as the average stare of the passersby are directed and fixated into their own cybernetic glare.How aware and how prudent are the U.K people whether politician, businessman or the student? But the people of the U.K are certainly not without a heart, when they feel it's safe or appropriate, even the very well off will happily give even to the seemingly world's apart. And it doesn't have to be cash if suspicion arises that the one living on the street is only going to blow it on some corrupt dealers stash, for it all to be over in a brain cell decimating flash.So long as there is respect between the two, how about a smile, some acknowledgement or 'How are you?' And why not give the remainders of that great Xmas roast instead of throwing it in the rubbish as if it was burnt toast?A discounted sandwich for 10 pence from Tescos doesn't hurt anyone's pocket, yet it fills a starving stomach. And who knows, the one you interact with on your own streets might be incredibly wise, who could know cosmic wisdom and might be able to tell you something that will ignite a light in your mind and really open your eyes.So much attention on far away lands, when great problems already lie on far closer sands. So why not shift the attention a little bit more to those forgotten on our own streets, much closer to shore. Maybe then the broken fragments of a revered culture can again become part of something greater, the entire country growing in strength once more.’- Robbie Allen

'Pre Incan Arrival'Artwork inspired by my latest travel experiences in Peru. Created for the Light Box Expo.
Old Peruvian Lady”There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age.” - Sophie LorenDigital paint study of an old Peruvian woman I saw in the sacred valley, Cusco, Peru.
'Daenerys'My most recent digital portrait of character Daenerys played by English actress Emilia Clarke, which I finished a few days before the latest episode 5, season 8.I felt inspired to do her portrait after I heard about her personal story around the time of the first season.
Danielle Portrait I started painting this portrait of Danielle on the Caribbean island of San Andres in Colombia a couple of months ago while I was backpacking through South America. At that time I was staying in a local, Caribbean family run hostel called ‘Big 5 Raizal House’. Whenever I would take out my computer and Wacom to paint Danielle in the reception area of the hostel, some of the local kids would come over, sit and stand right next to me and watch me paint. They would be fascinated and ask me about what I was doing, who the Danielle was, and even help point out mistakes of mine, or where they thought I could improve the painting. That was a nice experience for me in the early stages creating the artwork. I have now just finished the portrait far away from the intense heat of the Caribbean in my home town, Brighton, England.
'Peruvian Flute Player' 🎼This is my digital painting of a Peruvian musician I saw on top of the Sacred Valley, in Cusco, Peru. I almost lost my tour group on two occasions when I first came across this man and his music in the Sacred Valley in Peru. At first I heard him play his flute from a distance, the sound of the instrument seemed to echo across the valleys, somehow piercing through the loud noise of the chattering tourist crowds. On the second occasion I walked right up to the musician, dropped some cons into his instrument box, and took photos of him as he did his thing. Have you ever been stopped by some kind of enchanting music you have heard by a musician in the real world?
