A lovely commission for my lovely cousin + cuz-in-law across the pond. Their little KitKat! I love little watercolour doohickeys like these. I put in the UK Kitkat logo, just because I'm pernickety like that :D
Christmas is so close and of course it's super pouring with rain. It's my last day at Boardworks! In 2014 I will no longer be their Digital Designer, Illustrating, Animating and Graphic-Designing in a variety of ways to help children learn with interactive software. Next year I will be moving to London to work at Tiger Aspect for Series 2 or Mr. Bean, which is still blowing my mind with a mixture of PURE EXCITEMENT and omg fear.
Here is some stuff I did for BW GCSE Computing in the summer. Robby the Robot and his sidekick (bandmate?) Edwin feature in both KS3 and 4 ICT/Computing I think, I'm honoured to know that some of my characters will continue their noble mission of educating teh kidz after I've left BW!
Daft Punk's new album had just come out when I got the brief to draw them as a rock band (with fictional album cover,) so I was delighted when the Editor gave me the go-ahead to spoof Random Access Memories.
A quick note to say that I've been tidying up my stuff on Behance, so now it is all fresh and shiny for you to take a look at. New animations uploaded and I've posted up a Graphic Design section too! Go see, click below:
Heh, I did not know this was a Bette Midler song until I just googled the lyrics.
Combining my two hobbies of drawing and ukelele-ing! Ukulele Lady is a song I sometimes play with the grand Oxford Ukuleles group. I tried to get a little Uke-nerdy with this picture and make all the ukes fairly accurate. The one at the bottom is my ukulele :D
I saw the splendor of the moonlight... in Honoluuuuuuluuuu Baaaaaay
Still trying to get this digital painting thang... Progress is being made; sweet, tasty progress.
Sometimes at work, usually when someone leaves ( =[ ) I'm asked to draw a leaving present for them. This is always awesome and super fun, which almost makes me wish more people would leave. (Almost!!! I don't want to get lonely...)
Here's a selection of stuff I've drawn for work funzies:
Present for the Publishing Director's leaving do (A brief history of Boardworks):
For the departure of a Marketeer who's off to travel sunny places:
I'm going to buy some body paint soon, so was inspired to try out some ideas for future body paints =] This was done in Acrylic. Soon it will be with Snazaroo or Diamond FX or whatever body paint I can afford. Happy Late Halloween everybody!
