I have been so rubbish at posting absolutely anything for a good year now./../.I put it down to getting married. /. From the bottom of my now full heart i’m so very sorry. . //.
Free art drops today in Brighton.. . …/./.
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 . ../. This art work is designed to couple with a track focusing on animal rights, and whilst i am a vegetarian myself i’ve never had the guts to take it as far as these guys.. ./ . More to come. /.
The more i practice for the art of Tattoo the more my half finished ideas of art and expression slip away, today i sought to rekindle one such project, changing the pen for the brush to take on an old adversary
In 2012 i started a series entitled ‘Life In Little Pieces’.
The idea was to create a wall of 12 ‘saints’ all of which have had their place in my life past and future. essentially they are all self portraits /. They would be exhibited in a row, like the imposing art in a christian church, but take on a more gothic and self reflecting tone. Rather than these idols that celebrate the idea of virtue and sacrifice i wanted to focus on the parts of humanity which we might not want to fully admit, misdeed, alienation, heartbreak and ultimately, mortality.
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. /. 🙂
Still loads more colouring to do for the background/. But you get the idea
A little while back a was commissioned to design a half sleeve of Alien Vs Predator../ . I never posted photos here so ./. here they are
Black ink on paper. /.

I later found out the one of my simplest but most effective pieces hadn’t just been sold on the spot but had been taken all the way to New York City. / /./. This made me very happy and my little fragments are slowly but surely making their way around the globe././ .Sweden, Italy, Israel and now America.. /. /. Come on Asia/./. so i can move there . /./.
