Doggerland – Artwork and Skateboard Graphic for Enuff Skateboards
33cm x 95cm artwork/illustration inspired by the song Doggerland by The Animal Objective.
Available as a Limited Edition signed digital art print (edition of 10) in my online shop.
Client: An adaptation of the illustration was also done for the ‘All At Sea’ board graphic for UK skateboard company Enuff Skateboards – released early 2019.
Original Artwork Theme: A reoccurring theme in many of my personal illustrations is that of the of The Underground Merry-go-round – A fluid, fantastical world of curious, metamorphosing lifeforms, living together in a constant state of oppression and conflict. I also use this theme within my musical project The Animal Objective where surreal and twisted stories from The Underground Merry-go-round are recounted in the form of songs. Sometimes the artworks inspire the songs and sometimes the songs inspire the artworks.
Doggerland was an area of land, now submerged beneath the southern North Sea, that connected Great Britain to continental Europe. This piece illustrates how, unknown to many, this now water covered land contains a secret passage from the underground, allowing some unruly inhabitants of The Underground Merry-go-round to occasionally cross into our known world to escape the oppression deep below.
