Fuck off January 2016. Fuck right off.
You can order these badges at the bottom of the page...

Other badge designs

Pocket Art Mirrors

Mirrors. They're bloody important - but they're often boring. Yeah, you can check your look any time you want, but they often lack the most vital thing of all - a piece of limited edition artwork of something sodding amazing on the other side.
So exactly what? – I thought when I was walking my poodle (I haven't got a poodle) – Would a certain 8cm round mirror have on the other side?
I got to thinking. And here they are - for a mere £6 each inc P&P these mirrors will have you looking good - while all the time they - yeah - look good! Two things. In one! All pocket mirrors are 8cm diameter and come in a handy pouch. All limited quantities.

Manics - Richie and Nicky - Pocket mirror 8cm diameter

David Essex

Wolf - Pocket mirror 8cm diameter

Johnny Thunders

David - 1975

Back - mirror in "pouch"

Return of the Art Mugs

Hey and hello - the mugs have arrived on this blustery, tornado-style day or days.
They're shiny, they're new and they are filled with an invisible magical dust. They're ready for something, don't know what - but if you're making one I'll have a strong tea no sugar. Thanks.
The mugs always say they're dishwasher-proof but I wouldn't gamble on that as they are sensitive, art mugs and automatic machine washing techniques might go wrong.
Here at Raw Art we love our mugs but they often sell out so do order soon to avoid disappointment.
Here are the five beauties. Watch this space for new designs - if we fancy it - in a couple of weeks....
All designs are from original Raw Art paintings.
Thank you, for being there.

This is the Aladdin Sane mug.

It's a Sleaford Mods mug! Wooh! Our favourite punks now immortalised on a beverage container.

Sorry this has now sold out

The Throbbing Gristle mug - a Raw Art classic.

Sorry this has now sold out

David Essex "Rock On" mug - good for people who love David Essex. 

"Pup" Mug -
It's a Sex Pup mug - new for 2015! It's menacing but very good at holding hot drinks.

The underside of the mugs is printed with the Raw Art logo which is handy in itself.

Any questions, do ask.

Go Betweens - Liberty Belle Artwork

Hello scamps.
Here, on a blustery day, we have another new artwork to reveal... the suitably blustery jangles of Brissy's finest, the Go Betweens. Liberty Belle and the Black Diamond Express album cover. They're all sitting on a sofa. Some high, some low.
When will change come? Well, I don't know. But if you look at this artwork long enough – for a really really long time – things will change I am pretty sure of that.

On a sofa

On a wooden surface

On a plinth

If you would like this artwork it is 20 x 20 cm painted in acrylics on canvas board.

"Driving my first car, my elbow's in the breeze
With all these people that I never, never need
These people are excited by their cars..."

Sex Dog - 2015 - JANUARY SALE

Here at Raw Art there is a saying that goes: if it aint fixed then break it.
This has nothing to do with anything, really, it just sounds good.
The original Sex Dog painting was sold to the incredible musician and person Vinnie Peculiar, who finds the painting haunts him still.

But aha! There is another Sex Pup painting, which I recently found hidden at the bottom of a well. Scared and shaking, it is however perfect and timely. This is the Alaskan Malamute, which indeed graces the logo of this website. It is a talking point, a discussion, a lifestyle evaluation.

 Lounging on a chaise


This painting is 24cm x 30cm, acrylics on canvas. If you would like it there is only ONE. Hurrah.

1975 David [Bowie]

This is 1975 David [Bowie]. I've been painting some 1975 Davids for the past couple of weeks - some of which have been very small - some of which have been quite detailed - and here is one of them. The hair had to take centre stage, so to speak. 
I tried that hairdo myself some years ago. but it didn't really work. I think it would look a bit shit if I tried to do it again, like some sort of Tilda Swinton effigy or... similar. (I was going to write "Worzel Gummidge" then thought, no, it wouldn't look like Worzel Gummidge.
But then I think, yes, it probably would.)
So this is David. And he is mysterious, because he hasn't really got a face. Or at least features.



David (detail)

This artwork is painted in acrylics and measures 25 x 25 cm. Limited to two. Only. 
If you would like one then please use the PayPal button below. Any questions, do ask.

Have a look around the site...

...many of the paintings on this site are still available! They include painty style stuff such as:

Johnny Thunders So Alone

Sleaford Mods


Robert Wyatt

David Live

There are other artbits too. Soap, bands, badges. Yeah, have a look. Go on. An artwork is for Christmas, and sometimes for life.

PS We at Raw Art Towers haven't made our collective mind up about mugs this year. They're quite annoying to put in the post. Watch this so-called space. Contact us for commissions but not for the mad stuff, thanks.

#livedraw England V Lithuania

Hey cool cats – it's #livedraw tonight over at the Twitter. Watch this space. England V Lithuania, Euro Championship Qualifying thingy Group E whatnot. Here is a selection of snaps as the art took shape...

It was, an, er, OK game. And it's over now... but importantly - it was livedraw. And here are the paintings. Both still available!

Watercolour 1: Green "Artificial Turf" with Oxlade-Chamberlain in lead position. Hodgson in the background. And some ads. Plus action. A4 size - watercolour on paper.

Watercolour 2: Golden Opportunity with Hodgson in foreground. Harry "Killer" Kane in background. Plus Philosophy. A4 size - watercolour on paper.

Johnny Thunders Artwork

Johnny Thunders. So Alone. Yeah, he is.

Johnny sits in a yellow corner, legs splayed, looking for all the world like he's lost everything.
And yes – rock n roll is about loss, it's about desolation - despite what they tell you. Songs are sadness and life is cruel and Johnny - victim and heartbreaker - is going to tell you all about it. You can't put your arms around a memory. Leave me alone. (She's So) Untouchable. I'm sitting in a chair looking totally fucking cool but fuck me where's the fucking party? (That's not an actual song.)
But then rock n roll changes like quicksilver, or something else very very fast. And rock n roll is now about magic and beauty, it's a Great Big Kiss. Subway Train. And feeling quite good in some especially new trousers from a ladies store and hey it's all back to mine for a punk rock disco and seventeen thousands grammes of coke n some rum. It's 1978 and the world owes you summin. (Or however they would say it in New York.)
And back to feeling like shite again.
The vocals on You Can't Put Your Arms around a memory are a dream in breathless simplicity. It's such a great song. And Ask Me No Questions.
Anyway, I'm sitting in my kitchen and it's the weather's fucking tops and I don't care so go Johnny go. Stop feeling sad. Get out there and buy some new trousers. Go and take some drugs. 
RIP Johnny T.

#livedraw England Qualifier now now now - SOLD

Just drawn the England v Switzerland #livedraw football qualifier. 2-0. To England. Them. Us.
They're going nuts for Rooney and his 50 goals. Internationally. Or something. They love him.
If you don't already know I often do livedraw - especially football. Maybe Eurovision. Sometimes big elections (they don't always go so well. Bit contentious. Surprising).
Anyway, do go back to the Twitter timeline and see the work in process. If you have time.
It's livedraw! Stuff to draw live. Art and sport. Football and watercolour. Art and life.
Live it. It lives you.

Obvious, but Salient, Soap Sculpture - UK Budget 2015

George Osborne is a Shitty Cunt

Soap Sculpture in reaction to the Budget 2015

George Osborne is a Shitty Cunt (again)


George Osborne is a Shitty Cunt. Discuss. Or perhaps not.

This art is for sale for those that are really pissed off.
Or if you like George Osborne but you're a bit strange and like soap sculptures calling him a shitty cunt then do so. I'm not one to judge.
More to follow. When I've finished some very cheap wine.

This Soap Sculpture is the size of a normal bar of soap and is hand carved with a Swann Morton scalpel knife.
