Noh Mask Glitch Tattoo Design.. ./. A3 Ink on Card
A recent commission for a good bunch of guys, The guys in question are a local Punk band called Primeval Soup, who as well as preaching against wrong doings in the world and standing up for what they believe in they actually fight it.. ./. Raising money for charity, hunt sabotaging and boycotting . ../.

Black Ink on Paper
This is a new chest piece I’m working on..It’s done to scale using black ink and posca pens //. There’s gonna be a lot more tattoo designs coming this way over the next week or so. . / . Its nice to be sat back at a desk drawing in comfort. /. 🙂

Black ink on paper. /.
Below are stages in the drawing process. /
For the show fragments i put together a series of prints././ The ideas follow on from my “Virus” series where i became obsessed by pixelated images. I followed on with the same concept of fusing pixels with organic objects, this time using animals as my ‘host’. These images were created using computer manipulated ink drawings./ ./.
I did this explosion drawing a fair while ago now.. /. / But it has only just been homed././ It was for a good friend whose life quite frankly is crazy! this drawing takes in all the good things in his life spanning from mundane to the absolutely insane.. /.
‘Adventure Time’ Black and yellow ink on distressed paper A3
What can i really say…/. Apart from thank you to EVERYONE…././. Everyone who came last night, everyone involved in the show and everyone around those involved.././ This show was both mine and Karol Michalecs first show in Brighton and because of you all it was a raging success…. /. The building was full all evening and a buzzing hub of activity …/. Never before has someone elses work complemented mine so well./. Its been incredible to work with such like minded people. This show encompassed all of my favorite elements of fine art… Painting, Graphics, Sculpture, Drawing, Collage, Performance and Free Art.
This show wouldn’t have been possible without Karol Michalec, Hazel Stephenson, Gill at The Painting Pottery Cafe, Alexander Glass, Harry (i dont know your full name light man), Lee Belbin and of course the love of my life Frin.. . . /.///.
This is the start of a beautiful friendship and you can all expect to see the Belbin and Michalec name joined in the future… . ./.
You can view some of the pictures here…/. but there are more on the way.///.
Again Thank you to all.. ./. Warmth. x
Just spent all morning updating this in time for lots of xmas offers.. . .///.. Go and take a look 🙂
Design your own pigeon or Explosion… .. ../
Well Brighton has been rubbing off on me… /. and recently i have been working on a new Mods and Rockers themed Explosion../. //. here’s just a teaser, but the finished product is going to be a lot more extravagant.. . . /.//.
Today has been a very good day dropping off new pieces to Brighton Arts Club and having a meeting with 13 Women, debuting in March 2013 so it seems odd that i should post this today… . /. But it was done a couple of days ago and it slots in nicely with yesterdays posts so enjoy.. . . ././//.
As it turns out messing around in the digital realm is’nt all that bad.. . . / /. I still prefer paint,pens and pencils though. These will soon be available as prints.. . . /. More pixel prints to come.. .. /.
I’m not really one for digital print making but last night i had a little dabble. This isn’t very original nor is it particularly clever, But it does get the point across quite well.. . …/.
I may not be able to take photographs.. . but i can scan!
This is an explosion a did a while back but haven’t been able to release it until now,.. .. . .. ././. It’s all about a very good friend of mine… .. His life is like a movie.. . . /./
