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
Like, share, comment etc please…
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.

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.
As always, any comments welcome.

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.

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”.
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.
