So I realise i have not been keeping very up to date with this blog and that was not the intention. I set this up to keep myself motivated to take more photographs of my work and other potentially interesting things i have done or seen.
To cut to the chase; here are a few new things I have done/ made a little progress on since last I posted.

So after charging the battery for my camera today, i found out that it was actually just broken… Great.

So I’ve just dug around on my hard drive and found some pictures of some old flash, mostly from unknown artists, I’m not even sure whether any of these sheets have links or lineage to one another.

If anyone can shed any light on who any of these were made by that would be great.

A few more images retrieved that might be of relevance or interest..

Tattoo Jack – 1942

Bert Grimm

Some old biker art that I’m sure i found on someone else’s blog quite possibly White Knights In The House of Kolor

Did this one the other day but I only managed to snap a photo of it on the phone as my camera battery was kaput.
Just a panther, straight-up, is what it is…
