New Work

Here is a little update of work, I have been a bit rubbish at keeping my blogger up to date. I think its because I'm not keen on the new layout mine seems to have adopted. 
The first image is all about the sunny summer, a time for people so go on adventures.
The second is an image inspired by when man first walked on the moon, with the well known electronics brand Tesla Teles of course. :)

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

The American Author Nelle Harper Lee was born on April 28th in 1926. I decided to celebrate her birthday with an illustration inspired by her 1960 Pulitzer Prize winning novel ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’. I read the book as a child and it has always been a favourite of mine, and of course the film adaptation with the fantastic Gregory Peck as Atticus Finch only helped to make me love it more.

GOING GOING GONE RED!

A while ago you may remember I donated some work to the Go Red Campaign for Richard House, London's First Children's Hospice.

Myself and a ton of other artist donated work that you can now buy online, but that's not just it! You can mix all the heads, arms and legs to make your very own custom character print! I have been playing around with it for days now and it is so much fun, check out the link here and try it for yourself!

As well as this you can read all about Richard House and the brilliant things that they do with all the donations they receive here.

Please help them continue their fantastic work by supporting them anyway you can!

Charles Bukowski

Its been a while since I have updated so here is an image I made recently for the eastwing news page.
This illustration is a tribute to the American writer Charles Bukowski, who died 9th March in 1994, this book jacket was inspired by his poem "For Jane: With all the love I had which was not enough".

Printed 1605 BK, Before Kindle

I have been building my portfolio up a bit over the past few months, one of the projects if you like that my agent suggested was to make book jacket related images for the daily news feed they do over on the Eastwing website. I really like the news feed that we have on there, I think its a fantastic way to keep everyone sketching as well as being quite informative too! For example, did you know that today in 1605 Don Quixote was first published by author Miguel De Cervantes. It is one of those books that I have picked up many times and not managed to get all the way through, alittle like Moby Dick but I will eventually!
So to celebrate a brilliant piece of literature I have doodled a "mock" book jacket, very worn looking and rather dog eared but it looks like a book that has been loved and appreciated by many.
Happy Monday!

Belated

Happy New Year!

I hope you all had a lovely break with family and friends. I spent alot of it running around seeing lots of people and even had a day trip out in the snow with the ladysnail which was nice!

Very belated I know as it is no longer Christmas but I forgot to put this other Christmas themed image up before I went off galaranting around.

I have been busy with other work but unforunatly I can't show any of it yet but I will be back up to speed soon, finding it hard to get back into the swing of things. More tea is needed I think.
