Q. Will you design a piece for free?
A: Hello, I am only willing to work free with people/ brands that i respect or belive ethically in. If your setting up a company based on environmental ethics or animal welfare and the profiit is going towards helping a cause then drop me a line otherwise drop me a cheque :)
Q: Is your work for sale? Do you sell orginials?
A: Yes ofcourse I have stuff for sale, head on over to my store. If you are looking to buy anything in particular drop me an email and I shall do my best (if its out of stock) to find it or link you other stores/ galleries i'm working with. I rarely ever put an original drawing up for sale but if you are interested in a piece send me some details. I do sell paintings in galleries and prints i'll forward them on if my own store is out of stock. You can always commission me to do a drawing/ painting for yourself.
Q: How much are your rates? We would like you to design a image for our clothing brand // skate shop // band.
A: Each design can vary on price, this is due to the time put in and the price of raw materials needed to creat said design. It is impossible to put a pricing table on my website as each design can be very different from each other. You are best of getting in contact and we can talk about what you are wanting design wise and when you are needing it by.
Q: I like your work and I am interested in what techniques you use and processes? What inspires you to make art?
A: Everything I do is done by hand, I really enjoy the process of mark making and believe that the use of illustrator to do the bulk of the drawing really limits the skills of drawing in the style I work in. Once I have a finished drawing I am pleased with, I scan into the computer and use illustrator to digitalize my image and then photoshop to do the colouring in via layers. There are so many things that I am inspired by which reflects in my work. I love music and my taste varies alot from tom petty and the heartbreakers/ paul weller/ alexisonfire/ bronx/ r.h.c.p/ mouth wash, the current band I am listening to whilst drawing can change the art work dramtically. I am also inspired by famous tattoist Tom Hooper and also 80's style tattoos. I draw my inspiration from many things it is really hard to put a finger down to anything in particular, I may get a new idea from simply taking a walk or having a good night sleep.
