I’ve decided to start a weekly portrait practice, just one a week with minimal colouring and photoshop work. Here’s Ian Curtis to kick things off.
My girlfriend and I watched 'Control' the other day and both agreed that although Sam Riley does a very good job of capturing Ian’s mannerisms and dancing etc, he comes nowhere close to the look of despair ever present in Mr Curtis’ deep eyes.
Portrait of an Ex Guerrilla Soldier. Private commission.
The thick bold line at the back of his neck is a low down Mohawk, the likes of which I have never seen before.
Last few hours to get your hands on the zine and tee deal in the Radulthood store!
Here’s a cheeky peek at some of the Radulthood spreads. Treat yourself to a copy here.
Second pic down is my portrait of Rodney Clarke!
Another comic short, this time 2 pages!
Adrian Tomine’s early ‘Optic Nerve’ comics largely guided the way for me with this and it’s approach. I tip my hat to him.
All feedback welcome, I’d love to know how this registers with people.
And now for something completely different. Here’s a T-Shirt logo for Skateboard store SMASH SKATES, east coast UK. If you don’t know the original graphic that this is based on, we might not be able to be friends any more.
Get in touch with Ash at Smash to get your hands on one.
I’m hyped to finally announce the launch and exhibition of Radulthood. The zine and exhibition will open on Friday 13th June in Brighton and zines will go on sale online later that weekend. Come on down for some art and a beer if you’re about in Brighton that night.
I’m in this zine and exhibition, check it out Brighton peeps!!
Mad props to the ultra talented @_joelbenjamin_ for this incredible portrait of my face. Beyond stoked!
