Here's an idea I've had to create a set of characters based on the same body shape (similar to those cut out characters you used to be able to get with interchangeable clothing). These 3 girls form a triptych that I'm thinking of producing as a set of short run screen prints... just have to decide on the colourways!

Inspired by a piece a friend of mine recently produced, I thought I'd put a poster together myself. Seeing as how the band aren't currently touring at the moment I've used a date from their previous UK tour in support of their most excellent album 'Living With The Ancients'. A bit different for me this one (being a photo based design) but still fun to put together.

I've been working on a special project lately and realized how long it had been since my 'Dirty Job' demons (if some of you can remember that far back!)... So here's a new one, that posthumously ties in with Valentine's Day (accidentally) and as a possible submission to a competition currently running on deviantART (who I must set an account up with!).
Well... 2 girls... alright, technically it's 1 girl!
A little bit of experimentation based on a sketch inspired by the forthcoming 'Dr Sketchy' night. I think I like the B&W one the best... but I keep changing my mind... that pink hair really does grab your attention!

Have been trying to get an image together for this smashing track from Zombina And The Skeletones for about 3 months before finally cobbling a visual together from a series of ideas. It's still not perfect, but I was happy enough to work it up in Illustrator so that was a sign that it was close enough! I like the framing of the image and the colour ways... the pink was a pleasant surprise as I was messing about with variations in the program, but it sits well with the greens.
It's been 25 years since Hardcore heroes HELMET released their seminal 'MEANTIME' album (I remember it like it was yesterday!!) To celebrate, the band are playing a series of shows performing the entire album... it will no doubt be AWESOME!!!
Here's a poster for their UK tour, that pays tribute to the album sleeve in my own simple way!

More work ups from a recent sketch. Very happy with the speed at which I'm producing these right now. This one took 2 hours maximum, and that's pretty damn fast if you ask me! Does the speed with which I put this together devalue the image?... I wonder if it does.

Yet another forgotten sketch from months ago... I put together the bottom version of poster (with his arms out) straight from the sketch, but never really liked the pose that much. I played around with it for a time then decided that the best way of depicting the arms was to... err... NOT depict the arms! Thus, the 'alternative' poster was born... and I really like this pose... it's a little 'cheeky'!
A work up of another old sketch I found lying about (in a virtual sense that is!). Decided to set myself a 30 minute time limit on this one (just for fun)... and it came out much better than I was expecting. I think that sometimes you can get too bogged down in the details of an image and end up not having as much fun with it!
I had fun doing this one!
