Leather Jacket Artwork

Below is a small selection of jackets to give you an idea of the range of my creative work.  Some were painted as customer commissions and some are one off portfolio pieces which are for sale as shown.  


Examples of further customer commissions are shown lower down on this page.

The Leather Artwork I produce is high quality, near photorealistic and very durable as the paint I use is designed specifically for leather products; it is waterproof and resistant to petrol, oil, diesel, household cleaners etc.

If you are interested in commissioning your own artwork on your own jacket or waistcoat, see the 'Commissions' page for details on how to start the ball rolling.  Contact me for further info.  UK CUSTOMERS ONLY for jacket art.

My own jacket - I love sci-fi and all the Alien movies so my compilation consisted of this theme.  It is much admired!  Whilst I would not do the same image again, I would do something similar if anyone was interested in such a large full panel commission.
