Figurative: Later figurative work by Justin Bailey

• 3 MARKER PEN DRAWINGS ON CANVAS •

Here are 3 examples of the 100 face/portrait drawing I did between 2008-11. The canvases measure 12 x 9 " 30 x 22 cms approx.

• DEK CHELLA • JALIMET•

Dek Chella and Jalimet are two characters from a series that I made around 2002-5. They are are computer drawings using photoshop of black and white drawings which I scanned in and then coloured. The size is variable from postcard to HUGE!

• PREVELLA • STRETT •

Prevella and Strett are two more people which I have created using drawings and then digitally colouring them using a mac and photoshop. I then made up what seem the most fitting name to match their characters.

• 2 MARKER PEN DRAWINGS ON SHEETS OF STAMPS •

Here are a couple of examples of the figurative drawings I do using black marker pen on a sheet of postage stams. I like the idea of using sheets as background paper and you can see the stamps through the drawings and it makes an interesting juxta-postion.

• 2 MORE MARKER FACE DRAWINGS ON SHEETS OF POSTAGE STAMPS•

Thesed drawings were from about 2007, not sure exactly, but I have done a few inthis ongoing series of faces or portraits drawn on sheets of stamps from various countries - these four drawings are on sheets issued by Nicuragua.

• PHOTOGRAPHS OF PHOTOCOPY OF DRAWING PASTED ON OUTDOOR LOCATIONS •

Another ongong project is the placement of my art in the public realm. These take the form of A4 photocopies of my face drawings fromvsmall sketchbooks that. They are a kind of "Street Art" or "Graffiti" except that I don't use paint - just paste, or spray mount to fix the sheets of paper. These photocopied drawings I often place where there is painted graffiti already, or in delapidated old delilct buildings, or unusual places. The faces look out to the onlooker.
