Validation: The truth about my “IG Rage”

My website has become a necessary, time consuming & expensive burden that no one ever bothers to check out, but I am damned if I don’t and damned if I do. It seems like it was the ‘must have’ thing for any business and artist 10-15 years ago. Quite hard to build at the start […]

This print had been in the planning for a while and I knew I could’t promise to print it unless I had proofed it and was happy enough to pursue and finish it! You ask why, but all is not that appears to be with this design. Like most of Remi/Roughs art work, everything has […]

Mobstr- “This One” Screen Print

This is my first screen print for the artist, that I actually got one of […]

It’s a Wilde Ride

Lets say I couldn’t keep my excitement in when I was asked to be part of this project. I think the first thing that went through my mind was that, how would I screen print onto a car without a curved screen? Then all these other random thoughts came to me, as I knew that […]
