On one wet and windy day back in 2012, I found myself staring out of my studio window (whilst balancing my favourite pencil on my top lip) asking myself whether I should go for a bike ride or not.

To avoid getting drenched and blown away I decided to stay put, make a cuppa, pop on some Lionel Richie tunes and have a mess about on my computer instead. As a result of this, I ended up creating my very first Mockstar – Vinyl Richie. 

More recently, I’ve added a new set of ‘eye popping’ illustrations to the collection using the world of sport, film and tv as the subjects. Go and take a gander…


All my music themed Mockstars are influenced by their original name. I put the selected star through a witty, witty, bang, bang, word play generating blending mega machine. After leaving to cook at 180˚C for 23 minutes, out pops the unique Mockstars name. It’s then drop kicked to Vector, aka Wazza (me) a tea laden illustrator to bring it to life in a medley of various shapes and colours. After a good work out of mouse clicks, the odd reviewing session over a Dame Edna Beverage and topped off with a final dose of chuckle chops humour, I’m finally biff, baff, boff ready to induct the new edition into the Hall of Fame ready for you to view and hopefully like enough to purchase.

The Mockstars Hall of Fame Pun Factory is based in the UK, just outside the West Yorkshire town of Huddersfield. If you don’t know it, Google it. It’s quite nice. I can often see cows grazing in the fields from outside of my su suss susstudio window.


To be considered, I hope you’re already displaying signs of star quality. If you can play the spoons whilst wearing boxing gloves, moonwalk in flip-flops or gargle water to the tune of Bohemian Rhapsody then you’ve already got a head start.

If that sounds like you, then why not get your people to talk to my people at the Pun Factory here at Mockstars Mill (my house).

All Grammy, Brit and Oscar award winners are entitled to a 10% discount!! If you don’t already have one of these, then surely this is enough of an incentive to go out there and win one or two. But don’t forget to thank me in your acceptance speech.


To be serious for a moment, it’s important to stress that none of the items displayed on this website are an attempt at passing off as official merchandise. None of the well-known fiqures have had any involvement in the creation of the illustrations. I’m not using the likeness of any of the well-known individuals to endorse my prints or any other items, but are actually creating a parody, not an endorsement.
