Thought I would stick up this pond illustration I have done for North Somerset Council. It's for a nature reserve information board at a place called Locking Castle. It's quite a straight up illustration job, but I am pleased with the end result. Nice Carp!
I have some work in this Pop up show (they seem to be all the rage right now) in London coming up soon. It has been sorted out by Inkie and it’s running in Mayfair for a short time only, 8th to 12th of December, and the line up includes;
Goldie, Shoe, Inkie, Eine, She One, Mysterious Al, Sickboy, Insa, Zeus, Hush, MauMau, Kid Acne, Steff Plaetz, Shazer, Chu, Shok1, Xenz, RYCA, David Walker, China Mike, Part2ism, Ben Allen, Andy Council, Pure Evil, George Morton Clark, Milk, Dora and Don.
Christmas special poster for London club nite Play It By Ear. Noticed that there were a couple of bands in the line up with the words 'Kill' and 'Killer' as part of the names, so thought that I would draw a kind of tree of death.
I replaced baubles with grenades and stars with Ninja Stars. All the presents around the tree are lethal weapons.
I was hoping to capture the gaudy feeling of decorations at Christmas time. I quite like the tacky visual overload of it all. Especially after a glass of Port or two.
My latest poster for London club night Play It By Ear is a turbo charged, pimped out version of Bubo the Mechanical Owl from Clash Of The Titans!
In the film Zeus commands Athena to give Perseus her owl, she instead orders Hephaestus to build the mechanical owl Bubo as an aid for Perseus. I really enjoyed Clash Of The Titans as a kid. Harryhausens animated monsters were great and I loved Bubo. I have heard that he is not going to be in the remake, which is a shame.
Here's an interview with Harryhausen about the creatures in Clash Of The Titans, including Bubo.
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.
