Let’s Face it

Had a great couple of days in Wendover on a silicone painting course with the Oscar and BAFTA award winning David Makinowski.
great fun and incredibly insightful and I was pleased with my first ever realism paint job, a technique I’ve been wanting to try for years, although I don’t think Rick Baker has too much to worry about ????
David is an amazing teacher and the set up for the course was first class, all the materials and equipment laid out to ensure the best working practices. Looking forward to returning soon. 

On show in London at Red8 Gallery in Cornhill.

My now infamous version of you know who’s Monkey Parliament and my Salvator Mundi’s (before and after)
Get down and treat your eyes to a wondrous site, before someone puts a brick through the window and has em away!  


Firstly thank you all so much for your purchases of the 12 on the 12th at 12 paintings, your response was overwhelming and I'm truly humbled (as usual) so thank you. Now for the awkward bit, something went weird with the site and while some people were in the process of checking out others were still able to purchase something that had gone (NIGHTMARE I KNOW). So I have contacted everyone affected and will sort a whole new piece for you or a full refund. Embarrassed but gonna do whatever you need me to do to make ammends.
Again, thank you all so much, you guys ROCK!!!!!!!! 

12 by the 12th at 12

So What's all this old nonsense?

So I set myself the challenge to create 12 new paintings by the 12th of December and will release them at 12pm (UK TIME) and they will stay live for 12 hours. Now I know times are tough and I wanted to be able to give everyone a chance,  so these original oils will be available for £1,250 for those 12 hours, after that they will revert to their proper price of £2000.
I know its like I'm a saint or sumfin. These are the first 6 completed and I'll be posting the new ones as and when I get them finished, if i get them finished.
Wish me luck!!!

Not subtle or profound but this was my take on some images I saw of President Zelensky and thought i would make an interesting project, hopefully highlighting the futility of war, right or wrong I think the results were what I was looking for. The digital sculpting for this piece was by the amazing Sean Dabbs who created the bust from scratch. We did 2 versions, one with sculpted hair and one without which at some point will get cast up and have real hair punched to make it as lifelike as possible.

Original 3D Sculpt with hair

This is Sean's finished 3D sculpt with the hair added.

Original 3d Sculpt minus any hair

This is the second version of the head minus any hair which can be added later to a silicone cast.

Resin Print

Once the design was signed off it was 3d Printed in resin as resin prints are smoother and catch much more detail

It’s all Monkey Business 

Massive thanks to everyone who made the latest print release a huge success, the entire edition sold out in 3 minutes! Thanks to Stowe Gallery and K2 Printers for their for all their hard work and support! The other side you ask? Hmmmm maybe
