Behold! The work of Stewart Helm

Stewart Helm is a most extraordinarily prolific artist. He draws quite obsessively and his works are so numerous that in one exhibition his watercolour drawings were stacked up in piles in a glass case, each stack being a couple of feet high. Each of these drawings was a work of perfection in itself.
Stewart's work is exquisite in its intricacy and is like a journey through the body including the mind - both cheerful and sinister at the same time.
This genius happens to be one of our dearest friends. You have to look very carefully to drink in the detail of these tiny naked men, lying about like a tray of oven chips.
