Lifeboat Inn, Blackpool

One of Blackpool's oldest pubs just behind the promenade. Always seems to have old guys smoking and pigeons outside.

Wells Cafe, Blackpool Promenade

My brother recently gave me a picture of our great grandfathers cafe that was located on The Golden Mile on Blackpool's Promeande. I think it was taken in the 20's but it has long since gone, so for my brother's 50th, I decided to do a Welly on it.

Central Market, Blackpool Promenade

My first Urban Art commission was for the owner of this market on Blackpool Promenade. He wanted something humorous so I went for a saucy postcard feel. I predicatably called it "Beauty and the Beast".

Fairhaven Lake Ice Cream Kiosk

My obsession with ice-cream outlets continues. It's never the wrong weather for a 99.

First Urban Art Print Sold!

I actually sold my first Urban Art Print today! The honour goes to Anthony, the owner of Little Amsterdam, Blackpool. I spent the day approaching the shops I've drawn and ended up selling 3 prints and got requests for 2 commissions. Happy days!

I was thinking of publishing a link to his shop website but the content is of a somewhat adult nature.

Fish Poo Cartoon

Playing around again in Painter 12 trying to get to grips with drawing in digital. This cartoon is the consequence of an unfortunate incident with my cat who had a problem in the bottom area. I'll leave it at that but it just goes to show, inspiration can be found in the strangest of areas.
