Three completed art postcards.
All are mixed media and are standard 4×6 postcards with space for writing, address and stamp on the reverse.
The actual postcards obviously don’t have a watermark on them but will be signed by me.
I really would like to use these for an art swap with fellow artists- if you’re interested please email me at email@example.com

I’ve found myself watching lots of Youtube videos showing the Antonov An-225 recently. I originally found out about this plane whilst studying for my Masters last year; I was researching a lot of Russian plane disasters at one point and watching a lot of recorded footage on Youtube and other video sites. There always seemed to be links somewhere to videos of of the An-225 landing, taking off and being loaded at various airports.
I always watched with fascination and researched into the aircraft a little bit but never really bought it into my artwork as its history never really matched my work at the time. I’ve revisited it lately and thought that it would an interesting continuation of my plane related artwork to start with some deconstructions of this beautiful, Ukrainian beast.
I’ve been pushed for time recently (hence the very little posting) but I managed to produce this small, kind of rough, ink piece in relation to the An-225. Hopefully this is the first of many works in a series of artworks in relation to cargo aircraft. I love commercial passenger planes but cargo transportation also has my interest in terms of aesthetics and engineering. I’m always intrigued how passenger aircraft are modified to transport all sorts of cargo across the world.

This is the start of another series focusing on specific iconic parts of commercial aircraft.
This first artwork is obviously based around the jet engine- with varying types of jet engine to follow in subsequent pieces.
I aim to select, splice, overlay, crop and edit together these parts to create a deconstructed series that I don’t actually have a name for yet.
As you can see I prefer working in series so I can research (both literary and visual) topics and construct a theme between the pieces.
