Welcome to Inkriver

Inkriver contains original work in photography and graphic art. My name is Paul Saturley. I used to teach photography and do commercial graphic work, but these days inkriver is largely a labour of love. I have also restarted Casa Diablo, which is a blog of very short, atmospheric, and largely fictional writing. It has its own subdomain on inkriver and will hopefully fill out a bit more in months to come.

I live on Vancouver Island, on Canada’s West Coast. It is one of the most spectacular places in Canada to call home — at times glorious, but also dark and mysterious. The fog can roll in for days at a time. Some of the trees are ancient. It turns green in the winter. There is a lot of wildlife.

Please do not use the work on this site without permission. Just contact me and we’ll work out something simple. It’s the right thing to do.

Some New Friends of Mine

Uncle Chaos and Friends, seen above, was concept work undertaken for album art. In the end, the pieces weren’t used, but I got a lot of pleasure out of doing them. The originals are quite large. Uncle Chaos is a bit of a Frankenstein with some missing pieces.

Much like his namesake, he never quite makes it to an ordered state. He may be a little dangerous. The Space Kite and My Stoner Pal are contented creatures, but Mr Bitter, well, he is really something else. I’d watch out for him.
