OK, so here is my third year of doing paintings on my mobile phone. I have no idea if I am achieving a higher standard, but it’s certainly fun continuing. The year appears to have been dominated by pin-up art and by politics, although not at the same time!
I saw the incredible documentary, ‘Amy’ over Christmas holidays, so I started off the year with this cartoony depiction.
The idea was mooted that Idris Elba could be touted as the new James Bond. Thought I would try him out…
I got to work on a painting derived from a sketch by the talented artist, Jasper.
This year, science fiction themes gave me some ideas for some pin-ups…
I did a portrait of one of my friends, Emily Gonzalez.
I had a go at this cantina scene…
When I was at school in the 1900’s, my schoolmates found that I had drawn a ‘saucy’ picture of Judge Anderson. It wasn’t very good, and it attracted a great deal of derision. With my skills back then I don’t think that I did it any justice, so I decided to revisit it.
2016 was quite a dramatic year for politics, and so this featured heavily in my paintings
This character pretty much kick-started all the trouble, with his promotion of toxic right-wing debate.
He was instrumental in getting all of these phrases flying around, and stirring up a culture of hate and blame.
It was this gentleman’s turn next. He managed to turn an era of hope and optimism into an age of discontent and cynicism.
My continuing depiction of ‘him down below’ had to make an entry.
