Entry for the British Library / Arts Thread Comics Unmasked competition. Theme: To See Ourselves. The concept behind the comic was formulated with graduates in mind, and those seeking creative careers, and the anxieties that accompany the more difficult times. I had a lot of fun drawing / writing this.
I’m doing a couple of images on the theme of Housing. Some of it’s going to be used in a newly released magazine (hopefully).
I’ll be visiting people’s houses to draw their stuff. That’s the gist. I’m looking to make my illustrations characterful, but also atmospheric. I also wish for viewers to be able to connect with the work on the count of their familiarity to a lot of us, being everyday household objects.
I’ve been typing this long, so I might as well update my, um, audience, by saying that the next bunch of uploads will be quite mixed as I’m just trying to get onto as many opportunities / competitions etc as possible. This Housing stuff is one part of that.
You know, slowly but surely.
I just submitted my entry for Total Film’s poster design competition for The Raid 2!
I don’t even… I did this all today, in an evening. I feel like I could be sick any minute now. I’m still shaking from scraping my poster design in. Didn’t think I’d make it. I haven’t even decided if I like my design or not, I am in a very weird state right now.
I’m going to go have some warm milk or something. Wish me luck.
The eerie wonders of crystal palace park.
If you’ve ever fancied a simple walk in the park, with just a little more dinosaur than usual, you ought to visit this place.
Drawings done in plain old pencil, A4 size.
Some illustrations made from sketches at bes’ fren house.
They’re supposed to be for a magazine. And, well, I guess the finals aren’t meant to look like this. But they’re all right?
Back to work, then.
Busker on Hungerford Bridge, playing the tumpet.
Put together this illustration from a series of post-it note sketches done between Waterloo and Oxford Street.
The residents ran a reportage workshop today for over 50’s. As a warm up, we started discussing potential stories for reportage documentation.
Drawings from rehearsals at the Blue Elephant Theatre, Southwark.
Digital illustration for iTunes release of Lost in the Music by The Buzzed One.
The deadline was quite tight, and it had to be digital. My usual process doesn’t involve a major digital role, but I was happy to change things up a bit and try it out.
