Life in lincoln


Well freshers week was sick, But very expensive... so £££ much on art stuff alongside other, err.. liquids that aren't paint/inks. The original line drawing to this was done with a 'rotring art pen' I was apprehensive but i can safely say it is pretty rad (it'd want to be for it's price) i bought a tattoo reference book and thought why not? so i did a few little traditional designs of my own, hopefully you can see my style coming through. The next 6 weeks of my illustration course in lincoln will consist of a lot of life drawing, so there may be some very different looking images fighting their way onto your screens shortly (as if people read my drivel). i'll try to keep posting stuff in my style too though. Lastly an update on the sailor and lumberjack: hopefully gonna do a series of ginger bearded workmen (and women?!?) onto canvas. I feel like a pretentious douche for saying it but 'watch this space'

St lumberjack line drawing.




Here is the line drawing for st lumberjack from an angle. This character should soon make the transition into paint on canvas :)

First canvas board painting.


This is the background and planning for the foreground of my very 1st canvas board painting. The monster will be bigger, in painting, possibly in colour (undecided) and maybe with some type.

This is a flyer for carter's Barbers in Bury st. Edmunds. This is v2 of the flyer, comments for this would be fantastic as i'm not 100% sure about the blacked out head. Any thoughts?

Cards etc.


Been getting some interest recently! so stoked. Gonna make up some cards rather than writing my number on scraps of paper. Simple design featuring hexagons and a bit of type, this is no where near finished as i need to add more type and play with the design a bit more. As always comments would be greatly appreciated! :)

Arise sir Digby, My newest character design.. in the form of a three dimensional fun lovin' cuddly animal (although which species is very debatable.) Please let me know what you think on this one as this was an experiment.
