Just a few studies from today, don't want to post any other work until it's finished.
Been experimenting with painting over a textured background recently. It's fun, and gives it a more traditional look which is always a plus!

Also, I won the recent Character of the week challenge over on concept It's the Jack the Ripper image in my previous post.

Some recent challenge entries

My last 2 entries for's CHoW (character of the week) challenge.
I've been trying to bring more texture and brushstrokes into my work, and I think these are a definite step in the right direction. I'd encourage any other artist to participate in these online challenges, they're a perfect place to experiment, and also rather fun!

Great post, and even better blog name!

Stumbled across this great article on Phil McAndrew's blog (The Marvelous Mustache Factory) entitled 'Super Obvious Secrets That I Wish They’d Teach In Art School'. I think it's pretty self explanatory what it's about!
Covers useful tid-bits including:

-Draw Everyday

-Challenge Yourself

-Have fun

basically if you read this article you are 100% guaranteed* to succeed as an illustrator
(*there's a slight chance you may not be 100% guaranteed to succeed..... but stop slacking off and your odds go way up!)


as always

Dali and Destino

Recently rewatched the Disney/Dali collaborative short film Destino. It's a trippy but beautiful experience.
It inspired me to do up one final caricature before I start finishing the new folio images.

Dali will melt your brain.

My brother recently attended a tattoo convention in Nepal, and took 2 very large banners featuring my logo design for his shop with him.
Was pretty cool scanning through his photos and seeing an image of mine on show like that.

Got a logo that needs doing? Contact me

Nothing special, just a quick 5 minute image related to Ender's Game, I'll be doing a full cover soon. This is just an idea I had
