An introduction to me – John Ledger (summer 2007)

I am John Ledger an artist from South Yorkshire, my mediums are: drawing, painting, t-shirt designing, postering actions, and songwriting.

Work is fueled by fears and concerns and more simply, the compulsion to be creative, and to be remembered, which is probally wht so many of my concerns are environmentally based. I am either up high or down in the depths, i try to reflect this by having an happy alter ego ‘ooon badger’ ( while john ledger concentrates on the seriousness of things.Here is some of my John Ledger work, t-shirts, and Ooon Badger respectively :
The images are taken from my 3rd year degree show in June 2007
