This is my new piece around the theme of 'Boys Who Draw' for the Boys Who Draw illustration collective. It features myself drawing a couple of dinosaurs for my baby boy Felix to play with. The dinos are made up of lettering, pattern, symbols and pencils. The bottom one is based on Styracosaurus and the top one surfing on top of it is a Theropod type beastie. It is carrying baby Felix in his travel seat. Baby Felix is saying 'Hey! Heay!' as thats what he says alot at the moment along with 'E E EE'.
I did the piece using pencil, pen and paints. It's nice to get away from computers.
I use my drawing skills and love of detail to create bizarrely
intricate collections of creatures; from rabbits made of tanks to
dinosaurs mobilized by ‘lots of stuff’. I was trained in the
traditional techniques of animation and drawing, becoming influenced
by Miyazaki and Geoff Darrow amongst others. I use a combination of
graphics, line drawing, ink and paint pen to create my beasts and I am
now assaulting windows and walls with my unique menagerie.
