About ray

Ray Jackson graduated from Newcastle College of Art & Industrial Design in the 1960s where he studied illustration, typography and graphic design.

Ray specialises in capturing the liveries and colours of buses from a bygone age and has undertaken many commissions, as well as producing his trademark heritage pictures of vehicles in local scenes.

Paintings are in mixed media: Designers’ gouache, watercolour, pen and ink.

Commissions are welcomed by the artist, for transport related subjects and also house portraiture, favourite buildings, pubs etc.

Review from Classic Bus website

The technical quality of the original art displays of buses by Ray Jackson in the Witney Museum display was excellent – the pen and ink mode being well suited to the subject matter, with the style of emphasising the bus or coach in perfectly accurate vibrant colours on a quieter background lending an almost 3D effect to the scene.

The subjects included some half a dozen LT offerings, including most of the RT lineage and four of local interest, including COMS, Olivers and a 1930’s GWR Gilford coach. On a purely personal note I was so pleased to see that the attention to fleet number, destination locations etc., cannot be faulted. (I find that many transport art works fail miserably in this aspect, with out of size and incorrect numbering etc.) There were 11 originals and 1 limited edition print and they were all laid on double mats and well framed in plain beech. They all had price labels and I’m sure that some will soon be well displayed in some enthusiasts’ homes.”

As reported by Brian Matthews: “A roving report from my visit this morning to the exhibition at Whitney museum.”

Review from Bus & Coach Preservation

Celebrity bus pictures

A former pop star has taken to producing superb illustrations of buses and coaches, which was the subject of a display at Oxford Bus Museum in August. Ray Jackson’s work could also be seen at a special exhibition at the Witney & District Museum in Oxfordshire.

“I have been illustrating buses, particularly forties to sixties examples, for many years, but have now decided to sell my collection of originals to make room for more subjects in the future”, explained Ray. 

He’s hoping to include a selection of long lost vehicles from North East operators among his new work. Oxfordshire subjects portrayed by Ray Jackson include superb studies of an AEC Regent and Bedford OB.
