Greetings, and welcome to my gallery.
In 2012 I published a book relating to my current work on The Thousand Races project. It’s currently available in digital format or glorious, page-touching print from Blurb at The Thousand Races. Visit the page for a preview.
For sketches, announcements, ramblings and other irreverence, please ‘like’ and visit The Art of Pete Janes on The Facebook!
I am an organic green grocer with a background in popular culture and publishing, whose first memory was of cave paintings and moon landings.
Pencil, ink and watercolor are my primary tools, but I will use any tool that will leave a mark where there was none before.
On the other, my more fantastical pieces often emerge from random lines thrown across a page, a purer, more intuitive approach to creativity. My Scifi, Lovecraftiana, and Black and White galleries are well-stocked with these.
I’m left-handed, for what it’s worth.
Says Pete about his fascinating and hectic day job: “People need to eat. I make sure they eat well.”
Please swing by my Facebook page for updates, works in progress, and other, less pressing concerns.
