Showcase: the raw fluid talent of artist Jennie Gyllblad

From comic book illustration to tattoo design with a blast of steampunk inspiration

I discovered Jennie Gyllblad’s work whilst sitting in my favourite haunt The Boston Tea Party cafe, here in the ancient Roman spa town of Bath (England). There it was hanging on the walls in the space dedicated to local artists. Swirls of colour and the immediate presence of talent staring back out at me from behind the framed glass. So I got in touch with Jennie and was delighted to be given an opportunity to showcase some of her latest work. Alongside a couple of the images that really grabbed my attention in the cafe.

The Royal – A Steampunk Portrait

I would love to have something like this – of myself, of course (ahem) – hanging proudly from the wall of my Sky Bunker.
