Van Gogh Japanese Inspired Paintings

Oldies but goodies as they say! Love the colour in these, really vibrant but harmonious at the same time.

Not directly from the Japanese, but for old times sake, this was on my wall for years as a teenager....


We recently visited New Orleans for Mardi Gras, what a great city! Loads of music, art and great food. We visited the Ogden Museum which was fantastic. Great mix of Southern art from established to outsider artists.

One of my favourite exhibits was Ersy's. At the time I didn't take many photos as I thought there was probably plenty of images online, now I really wish I took photos of EVERYTHING as there's not a huge amount online at all! Here are two that I took, plus some I found on the web. I love how she plays with scale to create these distorted (often macabre), immersive realities, it's a very surreal experience wandering around her work.

Photos that aren't my own are from Unstitched Blog,, and Arthur Roger Gallery.

Cork Graffitti

Some new nice graffiti I came across in town, same spot as this post. Lovely pattern / stencil work, love the colour & detail!

Some intaglio printing I did last week, very enjoyable! This print is based on a photo I took in India. This is a shot of the very first "clean" print and the final "dirty" print after the image had been worked up quite a lot.

Paper Over Cracks

I recently completed the artwork for Slow Motion Heroes' new single Paper Over Cracks. It's a great tune so fingers crossed it goes really well for them! I worked with a theme the lads are developing for the single video, based on a paper bird. I forgot to credit myself on the back though! Major DOH moment for me!
