Video of me drawing with Micron Fine marker in my left hand and drawing with ballpoint pen in my right hand at the same time. I’m kind of messing about here but I do often use my left hand on easier areas when my right one is tired. Using 2 is almost feasible but not […]

Just finished this original artwork. I was commissioned to do something small but along the lines of my Desktop Series, with a couple other subtle pointers. Very happy with the result. “JRM Desktop 7.5″, ballpoint pens, pencil, markers, spray paints, and acrylic paint on card. 24x20cm, 2016, SOLD. I enjoy this organic mash up, mixed […]

“Monroe Gag”, Ballpoint pens, fine marker, & Krink ink on paper, 35 x 30cm (not inc frame) | 60 x 50cm inc frame, 2016. SOLD This is my first ever drawing of Marilyn Monroe. Progress photos below. I obviously created this one as a follow on from my Audrey Hepburn ball gag drawing “Hepburn Gag”. […]

Just finished this new artwork: “Audrey Swears”, ballpoint pen, paint pen, and spray paints on paper. 46x36cm (unframed). SOLD. Limited edition print release soon (December). So this new cheeky drawing of Audrey Hepburn giving it the middle finger ties in well with my other cheeky one (right), “Hepburn Gag”. I have a third one in […]

Audrey Hepburn is drawn in ballpoint pen and cartoon birdies painted in gouache paint, with spray painted background.

“Speculative Realism”, Ballpoint pen and paint on paper, 82x72cm (inc frame), 2014. Audrey Hepburn is drawn in ballpoint pen and Bambi painted in gouache paint. One for my (new) Anti Con Art series. This artwork is my reaction to a saying I read by philosopher Graham Harman, on the condescendingly sounding subject of ‘Speculative Realism‘: […]

Left is a proof of concept artwork (done last year), different to the kind of artwork I am known for, and I think may be the only/first time artwork of this ‘style’ has been done! Ever! It’s based on an earlier, similar artwork I did for the Bill Wyman exhibition at Rook & Raven gallery […]

Just received a photo (slightly blurry camera phone photo) of the largest drawing I have ever done in ballpoint pen, which took 315 hours! I did it for the guy who sent it; back in 2007. At the time it was the biggest ballpoint artwork ever created, I believe. People have created larger ones since, […]
