Yes, yes. It’s back. The Grafik Advent hosted by me, Sinna One.
It’s flipping freezing out there at the moment, but has that stopped me?
My paint stained fingers have taking such a cold bashing in the last five days and they shall continue to do so until the advent is up. So here are the first few and expect to see more. Every day. Watch this space….
As the summer was drawing to a close and the weather was still fine, I managed to fit in a little mural for Prince Fatty’s new album release – Prince Fatty Versus the Drunken Gambler.
Prince Fatty asked me to recreate the album artwork, originally drawn by famous illustrator JAKe, on a big wall in Brighton. The image shows Fatty, Holie Cook and Horseman ready to battle na Kung Fu stylie.
This was another challenging commission, as I am so used to drawing my own artwork, and it took a day just to get the original sketch to how it should look.
I was happy with the end result and more importantly, Fatty was over the moon.
There is a time lapse of the piece being painted on the way.
The album is out now on Mr Bongo.
Now hear dis…
This project was from last year and I’m only just getting around to posting the pics.
Gobi is a Mongolian barbeque restaurant in Brighton. I was asked to come in and brighten up the cloakroom.
The designs are not my own work, but the work of a Mongolian artist named G.Batchuluun.
Both pieces are from batik style paintings. The first depicting the goddess of Art ‘Yanjinlkham’ and the second depicting Ghengis Khan. Link to these images here – Mongolian Shop
It was interesting to paint in this style as they have a slightly buddhist art style to them. Something that I felt that I explored a little bit more on my travels in India a couple of months after this.
