Behold the jellyfly! Arch nemesis of the butterfish! And also one of my many aliases.
Explaining this one is pretty difficult, but suffice to say that the type of conversations that *this* came from make me very glad to be working where I am.
Also, I want this on a t-shirt a little bit.

I've recently discovered the awesomeness that is Andrew Bird. His music makes me feel happy in my soul. In fact it makes me feel like the image above. The only downside to him is that he doesn't appear to do many appearances in the UK (lame!).
I attempted to send this off to him via his management to say thank you for being amazing; I hope he gets it (and, you know, likes it). If I hear anything I'll let you know!
Speak to you soon!

Another year, another father's day card! I love that my dad understands me enough to know that it's a good thing when I say I love him more than Midsomer Murders. I also had great fun making the envelope looks like a 6 year-old had done it.

I was looking through one of my old sketchbooks the other day and I found this... a little comic strip documenting my last visit home. It's pretty rough, but it gives you an insight into what my sketchbooks normally look like... and how my mind works. I'm particularly proud of the "Ode to a Frappucino" part.
You'll have to click on each pic to zoom in and see it properly I'm afraid, but hopefully you'll enjoy all the same!

Something a little different to my usual - I feel it incorporates the way I work from observation to the way I work regularly on full pieces from my imagination. I had fun doing it anyway!
This is pencil coloured and arranged on Photoshop. The only real problem I had with this piece was the sheer amount of options I ended up with colour and tone-wise. Narrowing it down was not easy, especially as I had quite a strong red in mind for the background. I think I prefer this though.
Drawing inspiration both from my visit to the Museum of London and the amazing costumes on display there and some rather fantastic comic books artists I've been looking at recently.
Let me know what you think!

This is a little piece I promised to a friend; a poster of H-Bomb and the Palindrones, a fictional band we made up after deciding a nickname suggested to me sounded like the lead singer for a rock band. Find represented Punk (in H-Bomb herself), Glam, Metal, Grunge and Pirate (yes, it's a legitimate rock sub-genre)! If you come up with names for the others then let me know!
