bubble blowing


just a quick post, hopefully the patterns are clear to see. i have seen some blogs where images can be clicked on, linking to a bigger image file though i haven't been blogging that long but i guess i'll figure it out at some point.

Mexican Skull Postcard Design


It's kind of weird that my new postcard design features another mexican theme. Although i guess its mostly because i like mexico and the many traditions such as the day of the dead, especially the bright and vibrant use of colour on all their festive objects. It would be great if there was something like this in the Uk (barring Halloween) where you can decorate a skull just like decorating an egg at easter. personally i'd go with painting on a skull than an egg since there is more of a canvas be creative on. Anyway, back to the post, this is part of what i will be sending to art directors in the next few weeks/month but there is also something else that i am sending, though i will not post it up here until i have sent off my samples pack, just to add an element of surprise if there is an art director who might be reading this (hopefully someone is looking at this blog).

Sumo Wrestlers


Here is one new image to show you, this time round, i have decided to make this piece more figurative (as I have not abandoned my more figurative drawing style) but rather adding an element from the more graphic work. i basically started off with with the yellow shape and illustrated around this simple circle, i am actually quite pleased with the final outcome of this image that i have decided to make this into a series of works, so keep an eye on this blog for more soon. i will be posting more of my work soon as i have quite a few images to show.

as a side note, i will be redesigning my website which will feature my new work as well as some of the work currently on there. although i don't know when the new site will be finished as its just pie in the sky right now.

Donkey Kong


This image was created by cutting up paper to produce the elements of this piece. Again the background is rolled paint, i could of produced a very subtile hand rolled gradient which would have a nice texture on it but i do not have the facilities to produce this right now. I might see about starting some print making again as when I was in Art School i was considered a good print maker by my peers, especially in the Lino printing department. I have also entered this image in creative match's 'Flair Illustration'. If you want to see my image there, here is the link
