Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

08/04/16…Following on from last year’s spur-of-the-moment decision to get the bands playing Liverpool Sound City to sign one of my prints and auction it off for charity (see blog post from May 22nd 2015), I’m more prepared this year! Today I took the “Pete ‘n Puss” original I’ve painted specifically for this event down to… Read more »

With yesterday’s announcement that Pete Doherty will be headlining the Sunday of this years ‘Sound City’ event, I had some inspiration – a bit like last years event where Wayne Coyne signed one of my Dylan prints, I am going to try and get Pete to sign THIS ORIGINAL piece I’m going to do, again… Read more »

Got the call today. For £120.00 from Galleria Restaurant and Art Gallery, Rainhill, where it went up last month or so. Less 30% commission but still not bad for a piece that was done in a day, and coincidentally I sold my first print of it on Saturday just gone!

Another commission…”Grand Day Out”…

Miesha photo

After such a great response to my Conor Mcgregor painting, I think it’s only right to paint a female UFC icon and my first thought was Meisha Tate – not just because she beat Holly Holm on that same night Conor lost (I deffo jinxed him!) but because she is one darlin’ too! And luckily… Read more »

“Paco and Olivia”…

November 17, 2012: Olivia Wilde walks her dog Paco, in New York City.  While out Wilde stopped to get herself a cup of coffee at the Blue Bottle Coffee Co.  Before going in, Wilde made sure Paco wouldn't run off by securing his leash to the company's sidewalk sign.

Being a Twitter follower of Olivia Wilde’s, I see her posting regularly about animal rights (a subject I am a keen supporter of) so she has long been a person I’ve wished to paint. I love to paint gorgeous women who have class and integrity, and when I found this picture (7am today on a… Read more »

With the death of legend David Bowie in January, I still feel it’s too early to be jumping on the bandwagon so I’ve decided to paint him in this photo on the set of Ricky Gervais’ “Extras”. Brilliant scene … 12/03/16…painting over the “Neds” ending I started the other day. Just wasn’t feeling that piece…… Read more »
