Dandelion fairy painting in progress by Darren Cox

Update: November 2019

What is artist Darren Cox (Daz Gobzine) working on currently?

I am working on getting the Fabulous Freddie Fox finished for my lovely wife Hollye! she may want it framed rather than on the tapestry cloth background so it isn't finished yet! The white oil paint just dried!

I have several other projects in the works including a pair of female figures designed for tapestry mounting - one is a fairy and the other an angel - they are competing in the fictional universe I am working on making into a book!

I have one brave soul who has provided an address for me to send, for free with no obligation whatsoever, a paper zine through the mail (with content that will not be available in a digital format). It will include a magic mini-zine blessed (as I am a minister without a religion) and infused with positive intent - it will grant a wish! Let the history books show that Walter Williams of Plainwell Michigan USA, with his own free will, with no expectations, just love and curiosity in his heart, has accepted the first of my paper zines from this current iteration of Gobzine (the underground art zine of Darren Cox).

Catch me live in the audience of TFR

I like to participate in the Ironworx chatroom when the live show is broadcast!

Art from the studio of Darren Cox

This website is a collage of pictures and words that made sense at the time they were published but may not mean so much at a later date. I have multiple projects working at once but the over all goal is to sell my original work. can get you more information if you request it - and that's part of the point - YOU have to be involved, consciously, don't just click 'like' or passively view - I much prefer that you not like my work or my words than mindlessly be polite - this is real art by a real artist - nothing has been done for a quick buck or without conscious meaning at the time - maybe you will see things were not intended that you consider art - that's even better! No matter what, this is art - good or bad and you decide the good or bad  - if you cannot decide if you like it or not then why are you here?

This site is the work and opinions of one immortal soul having a human experience as an artist with all the glorious failures and messes that entails. I mean no offense to anyone who visits and have warned you that my work is for mature and open minds. I have given away most of everything that I have ever made and have many friends across the world who know that I take my art (and soul) very seriously. 

I want to share as much as I can in this digital format but also in physical work as having a floor to ceiling tapestry painting is a zillion times better than a tiny little image and while I can't paint all of you a mural I can provide an affordable piece of real fine art to all of you.

I plan to send my paper zines out to those who request them and have a subscription feature where you can have a unique art zine sent monthly along with stickers etc of my work. I'm not planning to beg any art galleries to sell my work, I don't even have a CV as who wants a boring list of shows to prove I can paint? Just look at my work and decide if you like it or not! Love, Daz
