Hekate

Hekate

Hekate

Once upon a time we had a table with a glass top. After one party too many that was a jumble of shards. So we replaced the glass with an appropriately sized piece of MDF to serve as the new tabletop. This was painted up with a jaunty design but over the last couple of years has become smeared and stained with a wide range of substances. So it was time to give it a little facelift…

Cue the white masonry paint and a bit of waiting for it to dry (whilst amusing myself with Lizard Lick Towing on TV) before I grabbed a couple of cans of inspiration/beer from the fridge and set to work. For some reason I settled on some kind of triple deity. But the deity doesn’t look very happy. I can’t wait for the weather to improve then hopefully I’ll motivated to do something a little cheerier…

Cheers

Seven shutters

We have painted down at Seven a few times before but this time we were asked to do a little bit of sign writing as they wanted the inside of their shutters painted to ask patrons to please leave quietly. After watching the video below i certainly don’t think i’ll ever be as good as these guys…

Bassists have the best moves

Bassists have the best moves

Bassists have the best moves

I have to admit that my favourite band member is usually the drummer, if he’s good, he can steal the show. Sadly though the drummer is stuck behind his kit (again why they are my favourite) and can’t really show the crowd his moves. The rest of the band on the other hand can move around the stage thrusting their hips which are usually poured in to tight jeans which send their adoring fans crazy. This picture though is based on a little something i noticed after one too many gigs…

It is A2 in size and is made using acrylic paint. Signed on reverse.

Banzai!

Banzai!

Banzai!

Like i’ve mentioned before it’s sometimes a little tough to say where inspiration for certain pieces come from and this is a pretty good example. Personally i blame the pernicious influence of TV and the internet – but then what do i know. Anyway it’s a picture of a little kid crying and the Japanese text says something along the lines of ‘Let loose the Banzai battle cry’. Put them together and this is what you get. That’s as far as i’m willing to go…

She’s a generous 42 x 46 cm in size and is made using pastels, ink and charcoal. Signed on reverse.
