In the fashion of how things have been going, I thought I'd continue to upload a few more sketches, hot off the sketchbook! Well...actually, the weird antlered creature is my current version of a yeti character I'm trying to come up with for a suitably wintery themed illustration! BING BONG CHRISTMAS! I wanted him to look extremely different from other yeti incarnations...hopefully he's heading that way...
The other designs are from a graphic novel idea I have been pushing over the last few months, I have PAGES of these designs, and intend to put up more as the days go by! Until then, please, be merry in this very merry of seasons!

Firstly, the awesome people over at the 'I Love Handmade' blog have done a little feature on one of my pieces and on my Etsy shop, so...basically, a massive thank you to them!
And secondly, I seriously do intend to get some finished artwork up here asap...I know it's been a while...it's mostly because I'm not entirely sure what I'm allowed to show just yet, and I certainly don't want to go around making vicious enemies this close to Christmas. BUT, fear not, my comrades, for I have some roughs and stuff and things.
These thumbs are the first roughs of an illustration I've just completed for The Spoils trading card game, which was a ridiculous amount of fun to do. And the top two images are a few character designs for the Starfish Charity poster I did last month (which has also found it's natural knack at sailing and has crossed the pond over to the States! HUZZAH, HUZZAH, what ho! But what are you doing still reading this?! IT'S MINCE PIE TIME. OH.

Hey hey! Recently I have been working with Arcane Tinmen and their playing card game 'The Spoils', which has been absolutely awesome. I'm still in love with children's books and that way of working, and wouldn't trade it for the word, but to be able to draw warriors, monsters and heads being chopped off basically makes the days feel like I'm just drawing scenes from some epic film...with a touch of humour thrown in for good measure. It certainly makes the long days go by quickly, and this is defininately helped by the great guys at Arcane Tinmen. 'm going to post a like to the site here...although I've noticed recently that my links never actually link, you seem to have to copy the URL into the address bar...does anyone know why this might be? Ahhh...computers. Life would be simpler if you could chop their heads off as well.
Oooo...I think this link may work...
I've just finished my first card illustration, which I will put up on this blog asap. In the meantime, here is a little card I did for someone I know, in watercolour, but I cheekily scanned it before hand.
