Art on Board in progress

These are the develpoment stages of my Art On Board piece for the upcoming ArtSHINE exhibition.

Hey, and by a weird coincidence, I researched purely by looking at images, and found this one, which I think it's clear to see, I have based the composition of my piece on.
Turns out this piece is Sarah Bernhardt by Paul Emile Berthon, who is the artist whose work I based L'ermitage on. Coincidentally, I feel I should offer  friendly reminder that L'ermitage is available on tote bags and postcards on Etsy right now, and some more things in the coming future.

A Steampunk experiment

I'm taking a break from The Lady to work on something for a show / competition. Thing is, I think I'm going to need to not work digitally on it, which has really been my thing, as far as shading and colouring. So, I had a go at doing a quick steampunk / Art Nouveau sketch with felt-tips. Apart from the skin tone, I'm pretty happy with it.

The Lady - a new Cyberpunk Art Nouveau Piece

Since the ArtSHINE show, I've been wanting to do another of these pieces, so I've been working on another one the same way I did the Gentleman piece. I found a cool picture of a Victorian lady, and took it from there.
These are the first few stages, but she's coming along nicely.

James Mathurin Art is on Etsy now!

I've opened up a store on Etsy to sell some products I've made with my designs on. Have a look below in the handy widget-thing they let me use.

Here's a better look at the items on sale; they're all based on either the Street Art Superheroes or the Cyberpunk Art Nouveau sets, but I'll add more as I'm able to source products:

Melee in Melbourne

So, here's another Street Art Superhero piece. The art for this one is from Melbourne, and as for the characters... I'm not entirely sure. Still, I'm pretty happy with it.
