Alan Arthurs studied Fine Art at Falmouth College and Loughborough gaining a BA (Hons).
He became a gardener and painted for festivals including huge mystic and sci-fi, hot dog hoardings. In 1986 he started painting stage equipment in psychedelic, ultra-violet paints for the band Hawkwind. He stayed with the band for ten years.
As a loyal Roadie and an ‘artist in residence’ he enjoyed travelling to venues across the US and Europe and saw it all as a great privilege.
‘He combined his duties on the band’s farm where he fought weeds, tended livestock, painted album covers, designed t-shirts, programmes and promotional artwork, often while listening to the band rehearse or record’.
Alien 4 is one of Alan’s personal favourites as it reflects his interests and beliefs as an avid ‘classic’ Sci Fi fan.
He has developed his own unique style, using Humbrol Enamel Paints to paint directly onto clear Perspex, resulting in vibrant colour and detail.
I am a slate mandala artist living in North Wales using reclaimed materials for my work. I am greatly inspired by Mother Nature, Sacred Geometry colourful India and Morocco and Islamic art. I have loved patterns since I was a little girl and love that my work brings me and others much joy and peace.
UK Artist Danny Cawley’s work is all about colour, vibrancy and emotion. He creates this by working with his canvasses on his studio floor and uses acrylics, glosses and mainly aerosols and plenty of water. This is how he achieves his unique style. He loves colour which he says is influenced by his time as a graffiti artist and his love of psychedelic music. He's recently began portraits where he's combining his abstract style. For the last 12 years he has sold his work all over the world. He's seen his favourite band Hawkwind 60 times and has recently painted the much loved, Robert Calvert.
The Elk brings you these signals from the art and music project that is 'Deep One Insaniam' - a receiver of alien broadcasts with the Electrog Rig and Commodore 64 as the instruments decoding these messages from beyond the stars for you.
Chiptunes made on vintage computers like the Atari ST and C64 are mixed with psychedelic synth echoes from the 70s and fuzzed-phase guitars... these become your vehicle for a voyage of cosmic rock through time and space.
Because, we are all space explorers!

He works in many media's ,but enjoy pencil and ink/watercolour. I have a great passion of any old vehicle but especially motorcycles . His prints and art have sold worldwide
Been doing this stuff over half a century and it was on the first day of my Art Foundation course as a deeply insecure, self doubting teenager when a genius of a tutor breathed fire into my angst ridden psyche ; told us all to throw out all the school/formula/ preconceptions shit, stop thinking and ....look. This is possibly the only thing I’ve learnt to do properly in my life.
All my work is dedicated to my beloved mum who passed away in 2014.
Art by Nik Killeen
Born in London now living in the Mystic West of England.
A long time ago in a Galaxy far away I was commissioned to do some artwork for a Pagan Calendar which never saw the light of day, some of those images are seen here.
Arthurian Legend, the Pre-Raphaelites, Marvel comics, Witchcraft and the music of Hawkwind are among the many influences that inspire me to produce these works, I hope that these connect with you on some level or another.
'Psychedelix' features artwork by Erno, a graphic artist inspired by psychedelia, diverse cultures - both ancient and modern, music and the arts, as well as surf culture, nature, science, mysticism, sacred geometry and all things positive and alternative.
Having a presence on Skull Print is especially satisfying too, knowing they source, produce and pack ethically, and that spending your hard-earned with them results in contributions made to charity as well. Enjoy, and thanks for your interest.
We at Skull Print are delighted to be able to provide a platform for the work of Trevor Kendrick. This online studio allows you to buy his prints as gorgeous A4 or A3 prints. Here's a little bit about Trevor:
Trevor works as a part time illustrator for a company that makes large Christmas Grottoes and Animatronic displays. But in his own time he does paintings and drawings that he sells privately. The influences for his work comes from his love of all things of a Sci-Fi/ Fantasy nature ( especially the books of Mike Moorcock and Ray Bradbury ) ..
His other big obsession is music...from Prog to punk with a good dose of krautrock, blues, psychedelia, jazz etc etc.. And especially Hawkwind..
Some of his work can be obtained by going to the 'SHOP' and clicking on the category 'Trevor Kendrick' or we can put you in touch with him for commissions.
