Coming soon...maybe...maybe not.
Art is therapy to me. Instead of telling someone they are full of ##it I will draw it. This is for all those people you know who tell you one thing then go do another. It doesn't make them bad, just full of ##it.
Rather than upset any delicate art lovers out there I decided to put a little sticker on it. An idea I nabbed from someone I met at the Gloucester Paint Jam a few weeks ago and has since become one of my favourite artists, you should check out Skeleton Cardboard.
I've added a few 'in progress' shots cus I know you guys like them. Share, like and Tweet if you can, I'd really appreciate it and if you haven't already please sign up for my newsletter.
I've been working hard this weekend to get a big canvas finished. The inspiration for this canvas is from Hebrews 13:5 which reads...
Now I'm not believer but I do enjoy adding a religious context to my work and the quote above stood out to me which is why I decided to use it. Read on for the process I went through to create this new piece of art and to understand more about what it means to me.
Usually my work involves cynical messages in the background however a friend convinced me to do something positive and maybe use bible text. With the backgrounds I do I start with a light grey and write large letters, these letters slowly get darker and smaller. Starting with the big letters this seemed the most obvious way to start.
I'm pleased with how it's turned out. The smooth worm and the deep reds add a nice high quality finish.
Now available in the Korp store.
The Hyperlapse app is pretty cool. Look what I did.
Three new worms have just been added to the Korp store but be quick, one has already sold.
Over the years the Korpworms have mutated several times, most notably when they grew arms. This year they have started growing feathers from their heads. Are they ears or just plumage to distract you from their pitted faces and dark eyes?
These two have continued my recent preference to draw on long canvases so I can really show off the feathers. Both are now available in the shop.

The Overground Arts Jam is my hometown jam. I love it because I know so many of the people that visit throughout the day which makes it a very sociable jam. This years jam was meant to be a small affair with efforts being put into Overground 2015 but the turnout was good and the quality was high.
I used this jam as an opportunity to experiment with a different background. A stencil I cut a few years ago that had never been sprayed before was repeated multiple times with one of my more detailed worms in the foreground. Let me know what you think.

I put a shout out on early on in the year because I didn't have many paint jams to go to and one of the first responses was from Beastie Art inviting me over to Gloucester for their first ever live paint jam. Beastie had previously donated to a Free Art Friday spin off I was involved in so I was keen to do a good job at any paint jam he was organising.
Lots of top artists were painting there including Blouh, Andy Council, Artista, Caleigh Ill, Dice 67, Kef, SPzero76 and the rest of Lost Souls, M-One, My Name is Leila, Bunts, Skeleton Cardboard, TankPetrol, 616 and some of the SSOSVA.
Day 1 was a bit of a wash out but day 2 was awesome with great art going up all over the place. Check out the photos the Mrs Korp took below.
