Just came across this Tumblr, Jim Lockey – Drawings, via a Tweet on this post. Seems the illustration, Visible Tom Waits, is making its way around the internet (as evidenced by how I heard about it) without credit being given to the artist. So I thought I would help with that. Jim’s illustrations are quirky and hard to categorize and, of course, that’s what makes them appealing. Mr. Lockey’s website is here where he is described thusly:
Jim Lockey is an artist. His work is about creating fictions and often about artwork itself. Working predominantly with Text, Video and Performance he explores the complex relationship between artifact and viewer.
He is the curator at LIMBO Arts in Margate.
