First Post in Forever - Mash Up!

It's been such a long time since my last blog post, real life has been getting in the way. I'll be skipping out a few things but here are the main projects I've been working on :)

Firstly below is my illustration inspired by Alice in Wonderland, I've always wanted to create something involved with this subject but wasn't sure how to approach it. With this, I started drawing as a simple collage of elements on the page and I developed it as I went along.

Secondly, I've completed a commission for an album cover for James Rowland Music:

This I adapted from another drawing I'd done a while ago and was given a few directions but free reign on some parts. This was great progress for me because I'd love to keep working in this area of illustration. Illustrating for music is something I am passionate about!

Anyway give his music a listen, it's awesome.

Finally, on the 4th April I attended Yorkshire Cosplay Con 7 at Magna Science Centre in Sheffield. I held a stall selling my prints and other homemade crafts/gift tokens and had a great time. Thanks to everyone that bought a print and said hello :)

Hopefully I'll be able to keep updating my blog, I've got a few more works on the way and I'm balancing a full time job at the moment too, exciting times!

December Update!


Not updated my blog for quite a while as I've been busy with work but here is my illustration of Freddy Krueger created just after Halloween.

I'll be opening my prints shop up again soon with more recent work too :)

Sorry it's been a little quiet...

Sorry I've not posted much lately! Soon to be moving to Manchester so been sorting that out. Currently working full time has meant not having as much time as I would like to spend on my illustration work, but that should soon change :)

Currently creating design work for a stamp company, so focusing on my line work. I'll update with new artwork as I get a chance!

My latest project entitled 'Apocalypse'. 

Hand drawn elements combined using Photoshop.

Representing the downward spiral of of the economy in today's world through a dwindling path of skyscrapers, towers and shops set on fire. Scrunched up paper as the background symbolises how people are aware of this downfall but choose to plead ignorance towards it.

Hello! Illustration

I decided to create a new logo image for my Facebook/Etsy/Twitter pages which showed a bit about me (my fondness for coffee and the fact I have a Jack Russell) and here was the result. I don't normally draw people so sorry if it looks a little amateurish. Just wanted something a bit more fun and not so serious.

Testing Lines

Below are a few illustrations I have created over the past few months. They are simple line work; firstly some movie poster artwork for the film 'Juno', where the line work has been drawn and scanned in and colour added using Photoshop. The second is a pen drawing of a French village, taken from my sketchbook.
