Jowybean shenanigans 19/12/15

I used to be a big fan of street art and graffiti never created any of it myself but I tired. 

here I have two concept ideas for graffiti tags.

the first is inspired by a song title Acid police from Japanese noise rock band The Boredoms. 

This one was inspired by thinking about actual spaghetti.I call it Spaghetti Brain.

until next post laters ;)

Jowybean shenanigans 16/12/15

I have finished  two of my fake  Disney/ 2d animation screenshots 
For my family as A special christmas present this year. 

Each scene I used actual locations from inside my house and experimented with a few filters and texture brushes to make the backdrops pop a little more. 

overall in the last two weeks each piece has taken 15 hours. 



My dad is a avid PC gamer 




My Mum loves her dresses.

Until next Post Laters :)

Jowybean shenanigans 10/12/15

Birmingham is a very unique city where arts, culture, music and history combine. It is a city built upon change-makers who have transformed the second-city over the decades.

This Jowybean unframed, exclusive print (also available as a tea towel) lovingly illustrates these points in the form of an arch celebrating the city and its heroes and heroines. Each print and tea towel purchased also contains a bespoke description of what makes up the arch.

This is a perfect gift for any Brummies’ living room, bedroom and kitchen. It also a great souvenir for visitors to the city.

BTW for all the non UK watchers out there Brummies is a slang term for a resident of the city. ^^;

The reason for this piece was inspired by an art exhibition I created this year in early october that celebrated my hometown of Bearwood's history and locations. It was called Bearwood art with History I have a retrospective on the event here.

Jowybean shenanigans 24/11/15

I have had a lot of commission and potential paid work come up since last week so updates to the blog may slow down because of this. But anyway here is a taster of something I am personally working on for my family this christmas. :) 

as a fan of old animation  I have always had the dream of recreating the real world in to 
slice of life Don Bluth/Disney inspired screen shots. :) 

heres two failed attempts from a few years back in 2008 I think. 

I am planning to give each member of my family their own personal screen shot As a sign of thanks for all the years they have put up with me and my work. 

its not going to be easy to pull off but its an ambition of mine I would like to make a reality before the end of year, maybe even make it a new form of caricaturing for 2016. 


After been 2Ded 

WIP of  two of the screenshot ideas for my parents. 

until next post laters.
