So I’ve been busy over the last couple of months working on this stormtrooper helmet in ballpoint pen and markers. I covered it on Georgian, Baroque, and Rococo styled designs. In line with my Grandly Grimey series. ‘Baroque and Roll’  2017 Resin cast stormtrooper helmet, ballpoint pen and markers. 320 x 320 x 330 mm […]

Been working on this piece on and off for the last 2 or 3 months! This work represents my efforts to coherently combine all my different series of artworks into ONE. As with my Desktop Series artworks, it all started with playful bits and pieces. Doodles, marks, and colourful additions. Drawing (excuse the pun) 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 […]

This is a ballpoint drawing of mine on another used Chanel gift bag (part of my on going “On Lux Bag” series), this time of Audrey Hepburn giving the middle finger. I’ve taken the photo of it here sitting upright in front of another artwork I’m working on currently. “Audrey Swears on Chanel” 23x18cm (unframed […]

A continuation of my new “On Lux Bags” series (view them all here). I’ve drawn Mia Wallace (Uma Therman in Tarantino’s 90s cult classic hit Pulp Fiction) in ballpoint pen and marker on this used small Chanel gift bag. These are really fun to create and having talked to a few people they seem to […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
