I went to Japan early last year and am constantly inspired by Japanese art – the combination of flat colour played against flat decorative areas and the disregard of  Western notions of difference between “illustration” and “art”.

Fan – Meet me

 This is another fan from the Brighton Bar Life series.  I’m interested in communication; how words effect people, how the look of words in an image effects your understanding of an image and how people communicate without words.

Fan – I love you

 I was interested in fans as a means of non-verbal communication.  Each fan movement has a set meaning, for eg: I love you, we are watched, meet me etc.  I wanted to do some more contemporary images and this project gave me the excuse to sit in pubs and do some sketching.

I’m thinking of doing a series of paintings based on traditional fairy tales.  Graffiti still continues my obsession of lettering and communication, verbal and non-verbal.  I love the South American style black and white graffiti.
