Robot Character Upgrade 3.0

After years of loyal service, it was time to retire my old mascot character and replace her with a new and improved design. Whilst I liked her overall look, in practice I found the proportions and details too rigid to work with in a dynamic way.

Top 5 Pens for Illustrating

I’m a big believer in the best pens being whatever you have to hand, as when you have an idea any pen will do! I’ve seen some amazing pieces created with some of the cheapest biros, so not having “the right pens” shouldn’t be an excuse (unless you’re attempting to paint a mural with nothing but an old potato).

Manchester #ArtDrop

Over the past few months I’ve been leaving Free Art packs in various locations in Central Manchester for people to find and keep. Each pack contains a limited edition (1/10) art print, stickers, and a handwritten note.

Collab Nation: Experiment 5, Stage 1

One of my favourite collaborative art projects, Collab Nation, is back for Experiment 5!

This huge international drawing project has each participating artist starting a drawing on A3 paper, then sending it on to the next artist for them to add to the piece. This continues until 4 artists have added their mark to the drawing. The process produces awesome and brilliantly unpredictable results!

Merry Holidays!

I’m winding down the studio this week and taking some time off to enjoy the holidays and work on some personal projects. I’ll be reopening for commissions and catching up on emails on the 4th January. Find me on Twitter and Instagram in the meantime.

Thank you to everyone who’s supported my work this year. You’re all awesome! Wishing a Merry Holiday to those celebrating!

Sketchbook Stuff vol 3

I’ve been doing some more experimenting with textured grayscale fills – playing with pencils, markers, and a combination of both. It’s taken a few attempts to get the results as I’d like, but I’m finding a flow that I’m happy with now. Here area few favourites.

2 Colour (LHR) Exhibition

I’ve been working on a new illustration to be shown as part of the 2 Colour LHR Exhibition at The Regent Pub in Islington.

The exhibition will showcase work from 16 different artists, each with their own unique styles, creating pieces to limited colour palette of red and black (plus the white of the page).
