Young people with faces

So few posts recently! Must try harder! A Canadian band got in touch with me a few months ago asking me to do some artwork for their debut album "Young People with Faces". As is typical with these sorts of requests, they didn't follow it up and I haven't heard from them since their initial interest. However the album name stuck in my head and while pondering it the other day I drew this. A little bit of photography collage you say? Ooh how new and refreshing.

New business cards

Hello folk, sorry I've not posted anything this week - I have been going all out designing my up and coming website - exciting!   It should be going live fairly soon - I'll keep you posted.  Anyway, in the meantime here's a little promotional/business card I made up this week.  Any feedback would be much appreciated as this is only a test run (I've only got 27 printed so far, so changes can be made!).  Bye now.

Oh you trendy things!

A 'homage' to all those uber fashionable men out there.  Let us all be a little bit more fashionable everyday.  Today I wore flip flops.

Only a War can save Brown now....

I've decided that once a week I will find an editorial article to illustrate.  This week, Charlie Brooker's graphically described account of Gordon Brown's descent into political doom!  Click title to read full article.

A sketch or two a day keeps the Doctor away

Well, I've been a bit ill over the last week and have let the drawings slide I'm afraid....and now I'm off galavanting to England for a few days!  So, before I go here are a couple of quick sketches I did this morning whilst reminiscing of our travels.  Ah, bathing in a bucket in a Russian garden shed and watching people eating turtles in China; those were the days....off to the ferry I go!

Autumn in Amsterdam

Lovely city to draw.  I want to make a graphic adventure game soon and I think this is the type of style I'd like to go for.  I think it will be really interesting to make a computer game in this sort of illustrative style as gaming and non-computer generated illustration don't tend to go hand in hand !  It will be a Victorian era game but with a twist - maybe a hint of futuristic sci-fi...? If you have any ideas for it then let me know!

Where the Wild Things are

And now for something a bit different... Really looking forward to this film and just felt the urge to draw about it, plus its about time to play with some colour for a change (^_^)

Tesco Value Pencils

Last week upon almost completing a very average food shop, I was overjoyed to find a packet of 40 Tesco own brand colouring pencils for only £1.  Forty!  Hurrah!  I should have spared myself the effort of yelling, "hurrah" in the aisles; these are the worst pencils every to have been made!  It feels like trying to arduously scratch colour out of a twig, useless!  Hopefully I'll get some use out of them though - in the form of firelighters!  Tesco, you disappoint me.

Flash Game

I've just finished collaborating on a flash game with Will faulds and Chris Duffy"Money from the horses mouth".   (for poppenkasts' 4 hour game competition - took a little longer than that in the end but...(^_^).  I did  the illustrations, while Chris churned out a fantastical soundtrack, and Will came up with the awesome design and turned lots of tiny symbols into a superior working game! Below are a few screenshots, but check out the real working model at Kongregate! 


Got some work on this lovely site, click the title to see.....

This morning, like every Friday morning, I received my weekly "IllustrationFriday" topic.  However, this week, instead of dismissing said topic as rubbish, I decided to get into gear and drew something straight away. 

I think what swayed me was the accompanying quote: "Drawings help people to work out intricate relationships between parts".  Immediately I thought, BEARDS! Lots of beards! Joined together! With a few more beards!

In future I will attempt to illustrate more of these weekly topics; all I must say to myself is, "how could this topic best be illustrated with a beard....?"

Dinosaur Pile Up

This band I know from Leeds, Dinosaur Pile up, recently made a song called "Traynor", so of course I had to reciprocate and make an illustration called "Dinsosaur Pile Up"!  Not that the song has anything to do with me, but nonetheless and excellent excuse to draw some fiendish beasts!

Isometric mountains , Go!

I've come to realise that isometric drawing is the future. This drawing serves no purpose other than to display this and rally troops for the isometric revolution!  Very sharp pencil on paper.
