Figurative Study.. …. .. /.

For this piece i have steered away from any particular theme or point by choosing a dull but inevitable part of everyone’s lives and focused completely on the aesthetic qualities.. . . .. here is Fig.I through the motions .. .. .. .. . so far.. /.

Take us out of the equation, everything in the world would still carry on.. . take Mammals out of the equation, same thing, Everything would still get on quite nicely.. .. Take birds out, Things are still fine.. .. Take Reptiles, Once again the world would still be able to function.. .. . Take away Insects .. .. .. . . Everything collapses, the worlds plant life stops being able to procreate, the nutrients in the ground get used up, the world becomes a desert as the plant life dwindles, Soon without any more plant life the atmosphere simply gets blown away by solar winds. Without atmosphere not even microbial life has a chance. Without these incredible ‘pests’ Earth becomes Mars.. …. . … /.

Look where your walking.. .

Without Us You Would Surely Die… .. .

Self Portraits. .. …. . .. /.

Every now and then i get the urge to step away from drawing and painting and revel in the instantaneousness of digital photography. One of my paintings can take anything from 3hours to a week, So when i am freed up to work spontaneously on camera a very different style always emerges with every shoot, And it is far more noticeable because of the time left between each shoot. I normally stay on the other side of the lens when I’m working in photography and use my brother for subject matter, But this shoot happened and started so fast and completely by accident, there was no one else around so it had to be me. So here is a series of self portraits.. .. .. .

We Shall Never Surrender!!

‘We Shall Never Surrender’   Black Ink On Distressed Paper A3

A month or so ago i started plans for www.JakobBelbin.com  but being the starving artist that i am i couldn’t afford to build it and there was no way i could build it. So i struck a deal with a  a good friend of mine to do work for work . This explosion drawing has been drawn up by myself according to the subject matter of Great Britain and will soon find a home with its new owner.

If you ever need help with web design or web marketing then i urge you to get in contact with Lewis Davis at http://www.exhibitmarketing.co.uk/
