This is the Blog of artwork by Martin Davey. The artwork is a mixture of digital illustrations created in Photoshop, and paintings created on canvas using oil and acrylic paint media. The entries give some idea of the dates of completion, and influences and inspirations if any. The work is not listed in any particular order or time frame though generally the more recent work is at the start of the blog.

A young professor is performing an experiment in his high tech laboratory. He is being assisted by his assistant, whom happens to be a monster that is big, pink and friendly. He is a little worried about the experiment however.
This digital illustration was created in a vector based programme, and is based on a anime/ manga style of drawing. Created during autumn 2013.
This oil painting was created in the spring of 2013. It depicts a girl sitting on a bench in Watts Park, Southampton, waiting for an event unknown to the artist, with only a statue and lamppost for company. The statue featured is one of Sir Issac Watts, an English hymn writer, a resident of the town and born there in 1674. The park is also named after him.
The painting is based on a photograph taken during an autumn day a few years previously. The oil painting is on canvas board measuring 16” x20”, initially painted with a red acrylic base.
