Jesus Christ, it's 5 paintings, get in the car!

I have managed to gain brief but glorious access to a scanner. I will release some new stuff slowly over the course of this week (perhaps in three posts) rather than just splurge it all at once.

First, some paintings.

Of Course it Doesn't Taste Good It's Just Been In Your Arse
Acrylic paint

I Wish Your Fucking Mother Could be Here to See This
Acrylic paint

The Figurehead of HMS Warrior
Acrylic paint, black rollerball, coffee, ink

Fire + Ice
Acrylic paint

First Murder (after Argento)
Acrylic paint

The first two quote from Sutcliffe Jügend songs. Little more needs to be said about them, except that the second is much better than the first. The third one is just a little working on a sketch I did during a family trip to the Portsmouth historic dockyard a while back. The fourth is just some fantasy crap that arrived out of playing with colours. Dreadfully sorry about that. The fifth is the first in a planned series. As you can see, it is based on a screenshot from the film 'Suspiria', showing the first of that films brutal murders. I didn't get the colours quite right. The colours in Suspiria are so gorgeous

On Wednesday, I'll post some drawings, then on Friday the properly scanned versions of Bedlam Boys and L'Homme Arme, plus some photoshop stuff.


  1. Is the second painting some kind of reference to the album When Pornography Is No Longer Enough by Sutcliffe Jügend? Because the same phrase is repeated too much in that album for me to relate it to this.

  2. It is indeed a reference to the same.
