Some older examples of painting the female face. I’ve never formally studied painting or potraiture although I have done a little bit of life drawing. Most of my work has tended to lean towards solid lined work because of my graffiti background.
In future posts I’ll share newer work which has less rigid linework as I break away from what I learned through my early graffiti work.
A little blast from the past…10 years ago I was footloose and fancy free, travelling overseas. My active days as a graffiti writer were already long behind me but I couldn’t resist the opportunity to particpate in the painting sessions at the famous Scribble Jam in Cincinatti.

…another image from my misspent well-spent youth. A C-Line classic from 1996. A dirty, worn out, vine covered version may still exist hidden behind the wooden sound barriers built along this passage of rail line.
Sara and I are planning our September wedding and we’re constantly looking for inspiration. While hunting for other ideas it seems that even in sunny Queensland gritty street photography is still fashionable for a wedding flick with street cred.
While I may have lost my street cred at least a decade ago, I’m still glad that this old piece of mine continues to make an appearance now and then as a nice background for some happy couples.
