Taurus Tattoo Line Art

Taurus tattoo line art

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.

New Artwork- 1968

Scan 4

1968, collage, acrylic ink, acrylic paint and pen on paper, 14.5 x 21cm

This is a piece inspired by the Flower Bed song 1968– one of my favourite songs by the band.

It is a simple art piece in terms of composition but I wanted to reflect the atmosphere of the short and beautiful song- I didn’t want to make it overall complex.

The cut text is a short lyric from the song also, I believe these words were specific inspiration for the piece.

The concept was also inspired by this stock by senju-hime-stock.

Illustration Friday- Beard

IFbeards
Idiot
, watercolour and collage text on paper,16x12cm

As this week’s Illustration Friday topic is beard and I happen to be a watcher ofWheezywaiter videos (a beardlover if you will) I thought I should create something focused around Craig and his loverly beard.

I also then decided to add my favourite quote of his, because why not.

New Artwork- Pick A Card

Scan 5

 

Pick a Card, acrylic ink, collage and acetate prints on paper, 14.8 x 21 cm

This is a small piece inspired by meeting the lovely Damon Conlan in Shop in the Square,Wolverhampton last Friday. Card tricks were performed, ideas were exchanged, art was inspired.

The playing card with my name on it (card trick leftovers, the best kind of leftovers of course) was central to this piece, I also scanned the back of the card and used it as a small background for the magician.

New Artwork: Crash Site

deathofapilot_cover_withouttext

crash site final

Crash Site, acrylic ink, pigment ink pen on paper, 20 x 20 cm

Piece for the cover of the album Crash Site. The pieces in this series were commissioned for a music album by C.J Kane.

The second image shows the image with text as it will be shown.

Ideas suggested for this piece included various parts of a crashed plane/ plane debris at an aircraft crash. Again, I was able to revisit some of my Masters artwork with piece- interesting to go back after a year.

With this images, C.J wanted a representation of a plane crash but from a strong viewpoint for the viewer. The piece had to represent and bring together the other artworks of the album and of course the songs themselves. I kept the similar fractured silhouette- this time the front of the crashed plane’s cockpit- along with colours of bleeding/smoking ink.

I also chose this angle for the plane as the cockpit windows are easily recognisable- very important with fracturing a familiar, everyday object. I still wanted coherence between the image and representation of a a crashed plane and its connotations.
