Minnie 3 (Metamorphosis)


Funny, I was working on this piece and wondered of its suitability for Illustration Friday. I used to draw a lot on post-its when I should have been working at the day-job. We filled up drawers full of creatures and cartoons and weird little goth girls, eventually spawning Minnie. She's changed a lot since then...

Minnie spends her days between two worlds, living in blissful isolation.

Three generations of child mannequin and a footless ballerina


Mixed media on paper borrowed from the kids.  I couldn't get the feet right so I left them out...

Strange year...

Been a bit quiet this year, basically because of the volume of work that's came my way. A large part of that was for a project I wasn't sure about taking. Not really my style or palette, but you know... illustrators are all billionaires so we take on projects just for kicks! A new boy at the top has apparently overrided all the approved colours turning it into.. god knows what.  Anyway, You'll know it when you see it but I'll be taking my name off the cover.

One of my books got picked up by QED publishing. It's called 'Spacewalkies' and was my first foray into writing picture books. We'll see how that turns out in the coming months...


I'll get back to doing the weird shit once I get a mo'...

Meh...

Been out of the loop too long. I think I'll move this site and turn it into something more coherant.  Will keep you posted...

Dead but dreaming...


Hello strangers... Apologies for vanishing. I've been tied up with a neverending run of cities for HTW. Most of my updates are on F******k now, but I'm uncomfortable with them decreasing your readership unless you pay them for the privilege. Also, it's like a goddam police state on there - Misogynistic T & A pages are allowed but not artistic nudes?... Meh...

Refrain


A throwaway sketch that was originally much more risque. This blog is due a major overhaul - I'm geting to it.

Illustration Friday - Creature


Haha, I was looking for an excuse to post this. We were at Stirling castle in the summer when we came across a stall displaying the sort of foods eaten back in the day. There was a rancid pig head sitting in a large copper pot...  I had to will myself not to pick it up and terrify the kids. Had to draw it, mind...
