This week’s featured artwork was inspired by a conversation between The Artist and a couple of motorcycling mates, about how British bikers used to customise their jackets – adding cloth and metal badges, studs and chains.
Digital paintings are composed of many ‘layers’ – over 150 in this case. The four images below show various stages, heading towards the final piece:
VOS #9 MY OLD LEATHER
A good friend kindly hung the final image, printed out on box canvas, in his bike shop. (Thank you, Mr.W!) A customer – who thought it was a photograph, advertising an actual piece of clothing – enquired if the jacket was in stock!
This is not only an extraordinarily detailed piece of art – it has historical relevance. The badges on the jacket represent the wealth of businesses connected with the British/European motorcycle industries, in the middle of last century. Sadly many of them are no longer with us – such is progress.
Find The Logo
There are several logos to be found this week – how many can you spot? Is it as easy as it seems?
Every one who commented on last week’s picture The End Of The Line, found the logo on the side of the blue toolbox.
