Completed the line art form my brother’s next tattoo- a continuation of a sleeve depicting zodiac signs for each family member. This is for Taurus as I’m sure you can see.
Researching bulls for this piece made me realise how unusually shaped their bodies are.
I may use some of the sketches I made for this in some other artwork- I do like to reuse old sketches and pieces.
[Inktober #29 and 8th Gotye Piece]
I decided to combine today’s inktober ink piece and a piece for my Gotye Project as I am long overdue adding another artwork to that project.
This is Seven Hours with a Backseat Driver- music and video here on Youtube
This piece is layered writing with an ink pen, acrylic ink applied with a brush (and moved about with a water spritzer) and a final detailing with acrylic in and a small brush.
I took inspiration from the song title itself and the mood of the instrumental song. As it is near Halloween I also wanted to bring out a creepiness in my interpretation of the music.
Hopefully I should be back on track with this project- so many other things have overtaken my time this year. I like to be able to have time to reflect on my ideas about a song and work out the main themes, artwork layering and composition etc. I like to take into consideration music mood, lyrics and Wally’s original musical intention.

|Inktober #18 #19 #20|
I decided to make the last three pieces around Welcome to Night Vale as I saw their live show in Birmingham on Sunday 19th October.
The show was amazing and the venue was perfect- the Glee Club, Birmingham. I even managed to get my tickets and Night Vale tour poster signed by the cast after the show.
Each of these inktober pieces is 7.66 x 6.71cm and is acrylic ink and Pigma ink pen on 250gsm paper.
