There is a lot of speculation as to what sort weapon or weapons Jack the Ripper may have used, one of these is the kukri or kukris. A lot of British soilders had kukris while they served in India in the 1800's. Many of these kukri found there way into the British market for anyone to purchase. The blade of a kuri is very strong and has a distinctive blade shape.

'Works For A Living'

Pastel on Wallis paper

More of my "Working Class American's" Series.

I'm trying to capture the loneliness,
difficulties, anonymous desperation, nothingness, and hard won
hopefulness of the working class way of life in America.
(I know, I grew up that way).

Life size

Will be included in the
Art At The Georgia National Fair Exhibition,
Wildlife Division



Wild Boar


Wild Boar sculpture (with cat) in my studio.



This is the grinding process that I have to do get the features of the animal to come forth.

It's looks and sounds a lot more brutal than it is. Actually, I'm being very careful.

Work In Progress III


Messy, messy studio!

Work In Progress II


Plaster, carpenter's fabric, grass, wax, bees wax, pastel, charcoal, paper, denim

This is the sanding phase where I carve all of the features and then sand them down.

Annie Chapman was found murdered in the backyard of 29 Hanbury Street, Whitechapel,

September 8, 1888. She was 47 years old and a widowed mother three

(although her son John was crippled and had been sent to a home for crippled children

and one of daughters had died of meningitis.)

The passageway to the backyard at 29 Hanbury Street. Most backyard's where used as privies and tool sheds.

This is where Annie Chapman went with her killer to do business.

Instead he killed her and left her at the bottom of the staircase outside in the yard.

Mary Jane Kelly's Hand
Charcoal, chalk on UART paper
Another image from my ongoing series "Altered".
I drew this because a few of Jack the Ripper's
victim's were found with their left hand draped over their bodies
(depending on how many victim's you think there are.)

It may be a coincidence that they were left that way
or it maybe a consequence of his m.o.

Altered
http://artistcameronhampton.com/altered.html
This is a series of illustrations that I am creating, working name “Altered”. It is based on the Jack the Ripper murders in Whitechapel. I’ve been fascinated with the murders in London attributed to Jack the Ripper since I was a kid. I do not wish to degrade or ill-use the ladies who were murdered; I think they have been exploited enough. My aim is to describe the living condition’s of the East Enders in London in that particular era, to understand the desperation of the people and the ladies who were to become victimized by Jack the Ripper and subsequently by gawkers, hawkers and entrepreneurs. And mostly, like all of us Ripperologist (people who study the crimes of Jack the Ripper), to ask the question by means of creating my images, what sort of person would do such a thing? “Profiling is nothing more than an opinion of the individual preparing the profile; It’s not a science, it’s an Art.”, FBI Profiler Roy Hazelwood, Jack the Ripper documentary.
