"Scooter Boy" is a Sumi-e Black Ink Brush Painting by Northern Soul artist Neil Thompson.
The painting shows a scooter boy on a fully loaded scooter with mirrors and headlamps.
Sumi-e brush paintings use black ink in different concentrations in the Japanese style. The ink and brushes are similar to those used in calligraphy. To this Neil has added fluorescent water colour paint to the front of the scooter.
