My childhood lasted from the late 70s, through the 80s and onto the early 90s (I hesitate to use the phrase ‘I grew up’ as I’m still waiting for that to happen) and as such this period of time has heavily influenced my work. I am a huge fan of Retro Pop Culture including things like Marvel comics, vintage children’s TV shows, Terry Pratchett, science fiction, Lego, James Bond, 80s pop music and 8-Bit computer games.
I’ve always loved drawing and computers so a few years ago, when I was made redundant from my job, I decided to do something constructive and fun with this love of pop culture and the wealth of spare time I suddenly found I had and bought a new laptop with Photoshop on it.
I’ve also recently started taking an interest in photography so will be sharing more of my favourite photos in the near future.
I started off with submitting designs to a Shirt-Of-The-Day website but this was ultimately unsatisfying as I would pour all my creativity into a work only for it to receive no votes or even be rejected by the site admins.
Here on Redbubble I have found that no matter how obscure the reference or unusual the artwork, there is always someone who will appreciate it. And I’m always open to requests and ideas for new works so please do PM if if you have an idea you’d like to see on a greetings card, mug, t-shirt etc!
