I was asked to do another cover for New Scientist this week about the night time. We decided to go with a special fold out cover for the issue. Here are some photos and a little glimpse into the process with pencil sketch, followed by inks and then the final product.
New Scientist are also offering the opportunity to win an original print of the piece signed by my good self here
A piece about racism in football for the new magazine EIGHT BY EIGHT. Check them out here. Beautifully designed magazine.
Commission for the 50th issue of Little White Lies magazine. 50 writers, 50 illustrators, 50 years, 50 movies. I was given Cape Fear.
This is a new piece that was based on an old image of mine I did some years ago now. It was an image that first sparked my interest in drawing animals and putting an emphasis on detail. I’ve included some close up shots of the original drawing, although my photography skills leave something to be required.
This is available in my shop as a limited edition giclee print, in an edition of just 30. Once they’re all gone, they’re gone forever. Also available is the original ink drawing.
Hello, and welcome to my all new blog.
First off, this is well overdue. Over the past few months I have been swamped over with commercial work and with all of that combined with a complete computer meltdown resulting in the loss of nearly a years worth of work I haven’t had time to get this new blog and website online as quickly as I had hoped so thanks so much for sticking with me.
Over the next few weeks I want to write up about some bits I’ve worked on recently and try to put more time into showing my work to you people, something I’ve never been very good at. But I’ve got this new space to do it in, a new desk, a new website and a new drawing tablet (of which I’ve never used before). So it should be a good time to start churning out some great new work, that I will try my very best to post up on here more frequently than I have done in the past.
First of all, these are some portraits I did a little while ago. Something I’m always trying to improve is the way I draw people and these seem to be a step in the right direction. I’d like to continue this series, turn it into a kind of work in progress that I can add to as and when. I don’t know what final form they will all take but watch this space. On a sneakier note, you may see one of these animated in one form or another soon enough…
So once again, thanks for checking out my work and there will be plenty of new and exciting stuff in the coming weeks. As Mike Skinner once said;
