Stanley Hooper who describes himself as, “originally produced in Yorkshire, over 6ft and under 7ft tall, seagull expert, robot master, lover of pens, illustrator, motorbike rider and drinker of liquid”.
I love the muted colours he uses throughout his work creating a warm, nostalgic feel especially when combined with the collage and quirky compositions.
His work has graced the pages of numerous Uk and US publications/ newspapers including The Guardian, The Independent, National Geographic Adventure, Grand Designs Magazine and Waitrose Illustrated.
Some of his work is also available from his website as Giclee prints.

I collect vintage photos of cats and preferably people with their cats. It's something that I've done for many years now, but I have never come across an image as fantastic as this one.
I was delighted when I found it and even more delighted when I discovered it was part of Antique Animals, a Flickr group of vintage animal photographs - definitely worth a look!

These great snap shots of the 60’s are as seen through the eyes of Hollywood legend, Dennis Hopper. This Easy Rider, unbeknown to most, has been taking photographs since the 50’s. His own fame gave him easy access to America's elite and he photographed many iconic faces, from fellow actors, Dean Martin & John Wayne, to artists Andy Warhol, David Hockney & Roy Lichtenstein and musicians Tina & Ike Turner.
“His photos of a relaxed, shirtless Paul Newman and the cowboy-playing John Wayne and Dean Martin on the set of 'The Sons of Katie Elder' are visual gems”. Paul Laster for The Daily Beast.
Signs of the Times is an exhibition showcasing 110 of Hopper’s amazing images (1961-67), a selection of his new paintings and screenings of 40 of his films and TV shows. It runs from 24 October at the Tony Shafrazi Gallery, New York and will be accompanied by a 544 page limited edition book by Taschen of the same name.
