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 […]

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 […]

I’ve recently done this style of striking out the eyes of my subjects on prints from original drawings of mine, but this is the first time I’ve done it all in one original. Obviously I did it here to a very iconic image of Audrey Hepburn from “Breakfast At Tiffanys”. I made sure to photo-realistically […]

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 […]

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 […]

My biggest solo exhibition to date “Grandly Grimey” had it’s opening on Thursday, 22nd September at Westbank Gallery, 3-5 Thorpe Close, London, W10 5XL For photos from the opening party see this FB album here. The artworks I exhibited worked to recontextualize classical ideas of power that were once portrayed through artistic movements such as Rococo […]

I was commissioned to create an original artwork very similar to my young Queen on £10 note artwork “£QE10″ except to put Pablo Escobar on a Colombian banknote. Below you can view the video of me creating the artwork. It’s a two layer artwork (part of my Torn Series artworks) with the first layer being […]

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 […]

At the moment this is a one off AP (artists proof) print. Its a cropped version of the artwork “Samsara In The City”, to see more info on that artwork click here. There are no plans to do more prints of this at the moment but that may change in the future. Click image to […]

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 […]
