Gold! always believe in your soul you've got the power to know you're indestructible!
Except, nothing is indestructible or lasts all that long at the top of Picton Street/Ashley Road in Bristol (except maybe the rotting shell of Westmoorland House).
This was a reasonably quick hit on the practice boards. Pattern based design of Parasaurolophus. Went for a decorative look using gold and reds. Concorde for head, SS Great Britain for tail and Suspension Bridge in there. Shout out to Reeps who painted alongside me, all of the people who asked if I was Banksy and especially the dude who suggested the next piece I paint has Jesus in it.
Hello! First blog post of the year sees me involved in some Street Art mural work. I teamed up with artists Boswell and Deams to create a dark style mural on City Road behind Hamilton House in Bristol. It was good fun to do, I enjoyed being out on the street painting again dealing with bad weather, hedges with needles and bottles in, going up and down ladders and dealing with people asking what we were doing. It was most fun to do though as I was working with two great artists who are a good laugh to be around. Anyway here's my part of the production.... It's a kind of Zombie Bristol Dinosaur Stegosaurus. Featuring the Council house, Concorde, SS Great Britain, Suspension Bridge and Cabot Tower. It's pretty close to the sketch I did for it originally as it goes, which is good!
So, Big shout outs to Boswell and Deams and also to Chris of PRSC for ladders and sorting out the wall!
I use my drawing skills and love of detail to create bizarrely
intricate collections of creatures; from rabbits made of tanks to
dinosaurs mobilized by ‘lots of stuff’. I was trained in the
traditional techniques of animation and drawing, becoming influenced
by Miyazaki and Geoff Darrow amongst others. I use a combination of
graphics, line drawing, ink and paint pen to create my beasts and I am
now assaulting windows and walls with my unique menagerie.
