Quite a large new drawing just completed. This is a close up drawing of Audrey Hepburn at a resolution & clarity you won’t find on any photos of her. I had to interpolate a lot of the shading from an old photograph to get this clarity. Over 3 weeks work at almost 100 hours. Very […]

Decided to do 5 hand finished prints with Gold background of my ‘Ziggy Queen’ drawing “Eyes Wide Shut”. They are hand finished with ballpoint pen (floral design in background) and Krink ink (heart), each one done slightly differently. Detail below. Above is number 1/5 in repainted antique frame. “Eyes Wide Shut, Hand Finished” Limited to […]

Just finished this artwork commissioned by someone who loves the ocean and waves. I’ve drawn water before but never rough water, so I was excited about doing this. Drawing the water actually isn’t that hard, as there isn’t that much that can go wrong, but it really does take time, I thought this would take […]

This is a hand finished print of my ballpoint drawing “Bunny Monroe”. After the original sold I released a limited edition print of the drawing as a Giclee print (edition of 35, £250, these are still available, more info here. Now, in line with my new approach to some of my artworks of striking out […]

Just finished this commission. “A Tear For The Congo”, Ballpoint pen, markers, paints on board. The Belgian client saw my recent drawing of Donald Trump (“A Crying Shame”) and wanted to have something similar done of his country’s king from the past – King Leopold 2nd. The coloring of the tear I painted coming from […]

Here’s a different kind of artwork for you. I don’t believe many artworks like this have ever been done… Ballpoint drawing of Audrey Hepburn from a scene in the film “Breakfast AT Tiffanys” on burnt card inside a burnt Tiffanys & Co sleeve bag. “Sunset At Tiffanys”, 15x9cm (unframed size). Sold.

Another new one for the “On Lux Bag” series” of artworks of mine. This one is different, it’s a 2 layer artwork, (so also one of my “Torn Series” artworks – [too concerned with classification??]). It’s a ballpoint drawing of Mia (from Pulp Fiction) doing cocaine, on board, inside a torn Tiffanys bag. Check out […]

Below are work in progress photos of the original being drawn in ballpoint by James. The prints are almost twice the size of […]

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 […]

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 […]
