Good evening, I am John Conway, and I make art of very old things, and of new things I have made up. I have a podcast about animals with Darren Naish, and have written and illustated two books with Darren and C.M. Kosemen. My art is funded by people like you through Patreon.

Website Update

I have just finished a major functional upgrade to this site, the biggest change being this blog. I used to host my blog on Tumblr, but due to some crazy corporation buying it and banning "adult" content, which includes anything with nudity apparently, I have decided it was time to leave. No one seemed to offer what I wanted, so I've made it myself.

There a lot of other changes to other parts of the site; fixing stuff that had broken over the years, never worked right, was too complicated, or ugly. I massively simplified the patron login system, so hopefully it will work without breaking anything.

I've removed Google Analytics, because I have decided it's creepy.

As a bonus, the Irregular Books website is back up, at a new domain: irregularbooks.art. Dot Art... what a world we live in!

Camptosaurus, surely one of the most exciting dinosaurs, from the front.

Camptosaurus was a cow-sized dinosaur that lived in North America, about 140 million years ago.

The Darkness

What's in the darkness? A different thing every time you visit (within limits*).

The Darkness takes a painting and reveals it in a way similar to film, the lighter parts are more likely to spark a lightup pixel. This builds over time, both in the canvas and in your perception, until you can see in the dark.
