"Anything goes"

i feel i work alot better when im drawing stuff that has no significance to me and it does not matter what im drawing, im just drawing it because i fancy it, which is why half the time i do not really like my university work.

anyway, here are a few images i have drawn, just because i felt like it....

'mexican kiss'

'Jeff Hardy'



"You Shock me all night Long"

this post is about some pieces i have created for some of my uni projects. as much as i completely love drawing in just pencil and creating black and grey images, i also really enjoy experimenting with colour using paint and also material.

the first image is a play on the virgin mary, im trying to illustrate the annunciation with a modern day, taking the piss kind of style, so in this image i am trying to portray a trashy 'virgin' Mary.

This second lot of images are quote illustrations taken from the book titled "A word from the wise"...

“knowledge speaks but wisdom listens” – Jimi Hendrix on wisdom

“There is nothing good or bad, but thinking makes it so” – William Shakespeare on good and bad

“A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle” – James Keller – on generosity

“Gardens are a form of autobiography” – Sydney Eddison – about gardens

'The Sharpest Lives'

Like i have said before my first love is Tattooing!
i am at my absoulute happiness when i have my machine in my hand my ink in my pot and a willing, and somewhat nervous client in front of me. i just can not get enough of this art form, i think the closest i will ever feel to loving something as much, would be the love of my own child, if i ever have any.

anyway, here is a few of my creations i have completed over the months.....

Roses - my favourite thing to tattoo

flowers and text
