Captain Skav

(0.5 pen on 160mm x 125mm paper)

I've decided to try my artwork, and my luck, by selling NFTs on the OpenSea platform. I drew this character to mark the occasion. I don't know how it will go, or if I'll make anything from doing so, but at least I'm not trying to fob buyers off with lazy instance imagery that would make even Andy Warhol blush.

What buyers of my NFTs will be getting is a one-off with each of my works, as I won't make any other from them. It would be the original digital representation of the work.

So, if you're interested, click on the link and have a browse!

Freaky Blinder

(2B pencil on 130mm x 90mm paper)

 I've never watched Peaky Blinders, but whilst I was casually sketching, I came up with this orc character with a flat cap and cigarette and remembered some of the images I'd seen from the show. So I decided to call it "Freaky Blinder" in relation to it.

Ready For Instagram

(HB pencil on 190mm x 140mm paper)

I don't like such social media sites. I've made the effort to avoid them, but people keep telling me I should use Instagram, so I'll give it a go, despite my reservations. "Ready For Instagram" is it's tame title. The real name of the work is "The Dumb Fuck" which references Mark Zuckerberg's comment on those who use his platforms.

A fair comment, really.

The Book of Magic & Mayhem

 

(HB pencil on 110mm x 78mm paper)

Odd characters and weird objects do tend to come to the fore when doing dreamscape pieces. This elf-like wizard, with even stranger looking ears than normal, reading a chaotic looking book of magic, is no exception.
