Site Update and Twitter

It was YOU!!!

Wahey, I've updated my site, which I would be hugely happy for you to visit. Why not even bring some friends, there's plenty of room for all...

I have also joined the ever ellusive twitter, which will act as another blog/thought process/groovy batchelor pad (oh dear) as well as this one, but probably with more frequent musings and inane babble. Feel free to follow! Now if I could just figure out how it all works...

Debut Children's Book Concept Art

Well, here we go. I've been given the all clear to start showing some concept art for my debut children's book by Little Tiger Press (, the publishers who shall be publishing my little idea. I've been working on this for a long, long time, just trying to get the look just right, I want this to be a really cool book, and as good as I can make it at my current ability. I've done LOADS of experimentation and concept work, the pile of paper and sketchbook stuff I have for this project even surprised me when I brought it all together for a meeting last week. So I'll just show a few (don't want to give too much away right now...), until I get further on with the book. I'm having an amazing time doing this book, although it's a HUGE departure from what I usually do...using watercolour and pencils as the main medium being the obvious difference, but also not being allowed to draw monsters or other scary things I tend to like to draw. Aaaaanywho, incase you were wondering; the book is about a wolf cub. I hope you like them, and I'll post a few more as time goes by.
Your pal,

Blazing Hybrids vs. the Poster.

Jumping trampolines, Batman! Another Noir poster!! That's right kids, and there's more where that came from. This is quite simple for me, and involves a rabbit/elk/caribou creature which is not of my design, but that of the band Miike Snow, but the brief was to use their logo, and I'm quite happy with the way it looks. On a side note, I saw Scott Pilgrim vs. the World last night, and have become a little obsessed with it.

Alphabet's Heaven Digipak Cover

Front and Back Cover
Inside Cover

CD Design

This is a comission I have completed recently for an EP cover for a musician called Alphabet's Heaven (I bet you couldn't tell, all that name being everywhere you look on this post...). It was a lot of fun to do, and I'm pretty happy with the results. The EP music itself revolves around a bird called 'Jay' and a journey he embarks on, and the characters he meets along the way. Whilst the characters did appeal to me, I thought I'd try and keep the illustration simple and 'designery' (I made up a word), so I focused more on Jay himself and the beginning of his journey. I'll let the music do the talking.
The inside cover and disc does have more information on it, but not wanting to be some kind of crazed, information sharing lunatic, I took the information off for this post.
I hope you like it!
