His meticulously executed paintings have been shown in galleries around the world; one painting hangs in the Bristol City Museum as part of their permanent collection. He’s also created a variety of limited edition collectibles including vinyl and resin toys, prints, shirts, stickers and two series of his ambitious trading cards/stickers called The Melty Misfits.
