I would agree that there is a 'comic-book pop-art thing going on'  I'd say
the pop art element includes a bit of punk as well and touches of Philip
Guston. This work is reconnecting to a period of work I was doing 'just'
before working with the internet.

However, it's worth saying that I've always had many artistic identities at
once - these have included: pirate radio, net art, networked art, street
art, hacking, writing, music, painting etc -- at the moment, I've been
returning to paintings I was doing around 1990-93 ;-)
