I recently went to see the sequel to one of my all time favourite films, Trainspotting. Not as good as the original but it’s still worth a watch.
Trainspotting was based on the novel by the amazing Scottish author, Irvine Welsh. When I read Trainspotting way back in 1995 I was instantly a fan of his style. I honestly thought a movie could not do justice to the book. Fortunately it was directed by arguably the best director of recent years, Danny Boyle. The movie… and it’s sound track are still iconic over 20 years later (Damn, that makes me feel old).
I could have chosen so many amazing songs from the soundtrack as a tribute… but in the end it just had to be Born Slippy by Underworld. One of the greatest, booming dance tracks ever.
Pet Sounds was the eleventh studio album by The Beach Boys. The album is crammed full of classics, even so, one track stands out head and shoulders above the rest… God Only Knows.
For it’s time in 1966, the production of this track is amazing. Some songs age over time, God Only Know’s just keeps getting better.
Please enjoy my Sound Wave Art inspired by the song. Although not a style available on my shop site yet, please get in touch if you’d like a personalised song created in this original style.
David Bowie was arguably one of the most influential artists of the last fifty years. As a musician, he never settled on a style and was always willing to experiment. He faced so much criticism for his range of styles, but mostly what he did was way ahead of his time.
When he passed away in 2016 it was one of of the greatest losses of musical talent I have seen in my life time. In an age of instant fame and reality TV stars, we will never likely see his kind again.
My Blackstar art is a tribute to Bowie and his titular track from his final amazing album.
Some Friday Waveform fun to kick off the weekend. Radial Sound Wave art created from Led Zeppelin’s Stairway to Heaven.
Every Sound Wave is Unique, Every song has it’s own individual signature waveform.
Radial wave was created initially in Adobe Photoshop and as I required clean, crisp lines it was finalised in Illustrator.
This style is not available on my shop website ‘yet’ but if you’d like me to create an art print of a particular song just get in touch. It could be the perfect personalised gift for someone special.
Custom Sound Wave art can be commissioned at my art site monowaveart.co.uk

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.

Like, share, comment please… it’s all good.
Felt my John Denver Soundwave art from my previous post needed a little ‘something extra’. To me, it was looking a bit too ‘flat’. Added a more dynamic sky, with a sprinkling of stars and some subtle fading mountains. Think I’m happier with it now. 🙂

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.

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.
As always, comments and opinions are more than welcome.
