Haven’t done a normal Black & White drawing for a while (ballpoint pen & paint pen). I don’t think Marilyn Monroe was ever a Playboy bunny but she’d probably make a great one, so I gave her the ears. I’m subtly subverting the vintage Vogue icon but in more of a playful than disrespectful way. […]
Did this ballpoint and marker drawing of Natalie Portman from the film Leon on a mini Chanel gift bag. Carrying on from the “On Lux Bag” series I’ve seemed to have conjured up. This however is a bit more random, whilst the others (see previous posts on this blog) have a more political message… “Open […]
This is a dancing/jumping Maasia tribal warrior drawn in ballpoint pen onto a used Gucci bag (framed above, work in progress below). I drew him in this glitched out way to represent how the vulnerable native tribes around the world are fading away. It’s drawn onto a Gucci bag as it represents how our consumerist […]
Bit of a message in this artwork. I used ballpoint pen and markers to draw this glitchy portrait of a tribal Amazonian shaman on a used Gucci bag. The glitch effect represents how the vulnerable native tribes around the world are fading away at this very moment. The factors threatening these precious cultures are mostly […]
Recently I was impressed at how well ballpoint in came out after drawing on a shopping bag so I decided to take the next step and go multimedia on luxury shopping bag. Check out the video showing the making of it at the end of this post. As above you can see I’ve used ballpoint […]
His name was Red Cloud. He was an important leader within the Sioux tribe based in Dakota – where the Oil pipeline protests at Standing Rock have been taking place in recent months. When I began the artwork there was hope for the water protectors in North Dakota, but recently President Trump and the Army […]
This drawing is a bit of a return to my Vintage Vogue series. I worked from a photo taken by Louise Dahl-Wolfe in Tunisia, 1950. “Fresh In Gres”, Ballpoint pen, marker, & spray paints on card 35x31cm (unframed). 2017. SOLD.
Been having fun on a Microsoft SP4 tablet creating an intricate digital drawing (from a Francois Boucher painting) which I then put through a JRM video art filter. Check it out below.
The eagle here is tearing up a Nazi flag. It’s from an anti Nazi propaganda poster from WW2. A little more political than my usual ballpoint drawings but seems appropriate with the recent rise of the so called “Alt Right” in Europe & the U.S. Did you know that Hugo Boss saw a business opportunity […]
