Stone Roses Cassette Wave Form Art

More sound wave art today 🙂
Retro cassette with tape creating the sound wave of the song ‘I Wanna Be Adored by The Stone Roses.
Was a pleasantly challenging piece. Getting the sound waves to look like tape involved a fair bit of ‘out the box’ lateral thinking, but got there in the end.
Cassette drawn in Adobe Illustrator, ‘tape’ wave created in Adobe Photoshop.

Personalised Sound Wave art available at my art site
Like, share, comment please… it’s all good.

Leaving On A Jetplane – Sound Wave Art

Just playing around with sound waves today. Created this waveform art using John Denver’s classic, Leaving on a Jet Plane. The jet stream from the engine is the wave form from the song. Scroll down to play the song.
Please like and share.
As always, any comments welcome.

Lindos, Rhodes – July 2014

Just returned from a recent trip to the town of Lindos, on the Greek island of Rhodes. I’d like to  share some of my photos.
Lindos is a beautiful scenic town with some breathtaking views. It’s not a big place but it is tightly packed with fantastic restaurants, bars, shops and a couple of nightclubs (if you stay up till around 2am).
Lindos is an extremely hilly place, not ideal for the old or unfit. You could, however, just hail a donkey to take you up the steepest inclines to the ancient Acropolis overlooking the town.
Enjoy my photos and leave a comment. I’d really love to know your thoughts.

Sound Wave Art From Music

Every song has it’s own unique waveform.
My music art prints can be created from any song that means something to you. Ideal as a wedding gift (If you know what the first dance is going to be), great as an anniversary present (Every couple has an ‘our’ song) or even if you just want to add something original to your walls.

Custom sound wave art prints can be ordered at
If you’d like to know more, get in touch. Please share and like to help keep me creative.

Custom Name Graffiti Art

personalised name graffiti


Thought I’d share a personalised graffiti I recently created for a customer. It was a gift for one of her son’s birthday so needed to be done fairly quickly. Once the order was placed and colours decided (James’ favourite colour is blue and he has ginger hair!), I created artwork and proofed it back. After a couple of emails final artwork was agreed. It was then printed onto canvas and dispatched overnight.

“Parcel arrived yesterday and I now have a very proud. 13 year old boy and an envious 10 year old!
Many thanks for the service and the finished result”.
Think that quote counts as a satisfied customer 🙂

Camper van and Surfer Art

camper van surf
Couple of recent surf artwork I created in Adobe Photoshop. – Simple clean lines and a sense of depth achieved by using regular geometric spacing. The two pieces are designed as a diptych to be hung side by side.
I love surfing but haven’t been to Tynemouth or Blyth for too long now. I plan to make 2014 a very good year for me and surfing …. Even if the north sea is a little chilly sometimes.
