Rancid - Exploited jacket

A spot of punk

Category : Uncategorized

The last jacket art I painted was 2009 – was asked to combine a couple of iconic punk images – the archetypal Rancid image and The Exploited logo.

Frankly – it was a piece of piss.

Looked OK too.

And it was markedly different to most punk looking jackets in that it didn’t look painted on using Tipp-Ex.

Frank Zappa

Category : Uncategorized

I don’t just paint on awkward uneven leather surfaces such as jacket sleeves, but I recently painted a Frank Zappa pic on a shiny plastic VW spare wheel cover.

I was sent this graphic image – sorry can’t credit the original artist – it’s a nice image. But only a nutcase would try and copy it by hand onto a highly reflective curved plastic circle.

I lost count of the number of stars after about 200

So armed with some time on my hands and the mind of a nutcase I set to work and eventually came up with this finished piece.

Shiny!

Shiny!

It was nice to see it out and about in action too!

Wonder how many flies are stuck on that now!

I started painting leather jackets as an art student in 1991 – and then stopped when I left college. Now I’m an adult (no really!) I’m going to take up my paintbrush again!
