My postcards created for the International Postcard Show at the Surface Gallery in Nottingham. I used blue, white and gold ink and various paper ephemera on the postcard base, the building drawings are acrylic ink on kraft brown paper.

I’ve tried to show how the gold ink catches the light in the last two images.

The opening night for the show is 12th January and is on until 10th February.

Motorway Sketch

I actually sketched this at the end of January but hadn’t uploaded a scan of it. This is a quick sketch from a photo I took on the way back from Nottingham, Ratcliffe-on-Soar power station in the distance.

I used a couple of different fineliners, Windsor & Newton watercolour markers and a Kuretake waterbrush.

Cleaned up, added thicker lines and red accents to this commission piece. The client wanted a piece like this inspired by vices- gambling, drinking etc

This is acrylic ink, gel pen and pigment ink pen on paper.

New Artwork- Flamingos

Acrylic ink and pigment ink pen on canvas board, 10×15 cm

Flamingos seem to be everywhere at the moment, I’ve seen so many flamingo patterned things recently so I wanted to create something inspired by them.

In the second image I tried to show the shine of the gold ink on their beaks.

Tattoo Commission

tattoo commission artwork

Finished tattoo design (commission). Large watermark through this since it was custom designed for a client. This is a mix of digital and traditional drawing.

Laissez les bons temps rouler is a Cajun French phrase, mainly used in Louisiana, meaning let the good times roll.
