Back October / November time last year I had the pleasure of undertaking a Lynyrd Skynyrd portrait commission. I decided to base it on a publicity shot from the early 70’s. Check it out below and come and follow Dunstan Doodles on Instagram:

26 year old, Russian-born illustrator, Valeriya Volkova moved to America in 1997 and specialises in gloriously detailed and vividly surreal illustrations and paintings.

As is the norm with most of the new art I seem to come across nowadays I spotted a couple of Valeriya‘s works on Pinterest recently, and have since become a big fan of her style – check out one of my favourites, Pool below:


And check out more of Valeriya‘s work here.

And if you’re feeling particularly flush you can buy the original, Pool for $800 here.

1950’s illustrator Jack Potter

Posted in Art with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on February 23, 2013 by dc

Jack Potter was a 1950’s American illustrator and poster artist who became a teacher at the School of Visual Arts in New York.

His work was used on advertising posters for brands like Air France, Fuller Fabrics and most famously, Coca Cola.

I’ve only recently discovered his work and I love its vibrancy – and the simple moments he captures with an ever so slightly wonky clarity.

Check out two of his works below:



Potter died at his New York home in September 2002, aged 74.
