Adu Jahmal

Enjoying these hand-painted garments by Adu Jahmal, another artist I discovered on Etsy.

Alice Cooper:

And my personal fav, Bowie:

These over-sized leather macs are the perfect canvas for Adu's slick graphic portraiture. The mind boggles at the possiblities for using this kind of work in editorials.

It's a torturous 41° at the moment but I'm still determined to have my afternoon cup of tea. I keep putting Bear by the air-conditioner but he continually escapes to sit with me in the study. It is boiling in here so we must both be mad. He is obsessed with rolling over my illustrations. I think we both share a secret desire to deface my work!
