New Painting

A recent new painting in a series based around traditional stories in contemporary settings.  I wanted to see how few symbols the viewer needed to read the image and relate to stories that are part of the Western culture.  For some reason they seem to be featuring women who are waiting for something to happen…See the picture of sleeping beauty in an earlier post….

New Commission – Auto Body

  This is a commission for the US band Auto Body.  I work in acrylic on card which allows me to contrast flat colours (looking contemporary – eg; screen print revival and digital illustration) with more painterly marks (more traditional watercolour technique.)  It’ll be interesting to see where these take me…
