masked dog

just a quick post to finish off, here is another image that some might find strange. though i have finished one more image for the board game series. i am not going to post it until the other image is finished. i think i might end the series at six board games though this depends on whether i can think of other board games that would be interesting to illustrate. 

anyway, should post the remainder of that series mid-week.

Promo mini-posters

Hi to everyone out there reading this blog, in this post I have decided put up images of my promotional mini-poster/s which will be included with the new sample mailers that have been sent out. There are five colours in total, though i have only posted a few just to give you an idea of how it looks on other coloured papers. These were made as just an extra to go within the samples and other things that i am currently sending out to clients.

more board games

here are two more illos created in the theme of board games, this ones the classic pop up pirate. I loved this game when i was four or five and kind of still like the simplicity of it today. there doesn't seem to be any new games out there that can stand the test of time like the ones i've illustrated.

and finally, here is mouse trap. i have always liked the overall funky contraption built just to catch the mouse in this game. there have also been a number of blatant ripoffs of this game the most resent being the ratatouille board game.

anyway, still got a few more board games to do for this series (one being buckaroo)
so i should have these posted by next week.

icey breath

seems to be that i update this blog on a sort of weekly basis so today i am going to post two entries. for this image i have decided to also show you a close up just to see some of the details that might have been lost while reducing for this blog. i am also showing the original drawing which i altered to the finish piece above.

here is a slightly close-up of the image as i feel that some of the patterns and fine lines are kinda lost when outing them for the web. (in some cases)

And here is the original drawing of the boy.

board games

just a quick post to show you lot some of the illustrations that i have been doing recently. I have decided to create a series of images based on some old board games. the one above is if you haven't figured it out (shame on you) operation. ah the game in which trying to prod crap out of someone with a pair of tweezers. of course the best way to win a this game was not to have batteries in it which defeats the whole point of the game but you've got to cheat now and then.

Here is another one, this time its mr. pop. the game which pits you against the timer to stick crap on the head to create a face.

there still more work to post as well as images that i will be creating so keep an eye out for more.

King Hippo

here is another game related image, i guess its down to me now owning a nintendo wii. anyone who has played either the original punchout!! or the rare mike tyson's punchout!! will know who king hippo is. Out of all the fighters in that game, he is probably the most memorable in that he is the only fighter which can only be won with a single ko.

I still have a lot to post in here. though the trial for the blogging program i was using has just expired, (which i will have to get as i prefer it to using blogger's own tools) so i would of posted earlier but since that app had my blogger details and that i rarely loged in on blogger's site., caused me to go in a guessing game on what password etc. i used for this blog.

anyway, i might post something tomorrow.
