Music is one of my most persistent inspirations - both for art, and for living life in general. I cannot imagine spending a single day in silence. A couple of years ago, while observing piles of old, unwanted vinyl records collecting dust in a local flea market, I hit upon an idea to put them to use - painting portraits of musicians directly onto the vinyl surface, to create some unique commemorative art. As they've been something of a hit (pun half-intended), I thought I'd put some samples up.
And, yes, I do take commissions for these! Use the Contact link off to the left if you would like to inquire about having your very own vinyl portrait made.
(samples coming soon, until then take a look at http://www.instagram.com/russelljacksonart to see samples of these and my other original pieces!
