2000AD doodles + others...

An old sheet of paper from the kitchen table with a few biro sketches on it instead of doing the washing up. Bottom left corner is a copy of a Mike McMahon drawing. Bottom Dredd is me trying to copy his style

Sketchy things 2

Here are a couple of pieces to get myself in the mood for some up coming projects.

This guy lost threst of his sword somewhere...

An assassin?

Samurai Mask 2

When I originally did the first (green) mask back in 2012 I wanted to do a series using a very simple pallet of primary and secondry colours. It's taken me more than 2 years but I've finally got onto the second one. Maybe in 2 more years I'll get onto the 3rd.

Here are the inks for starters.

(The design sketch for this mask can be found in the previous post)

And the first peice.

Sketchy things 1

Some sketch book pages (some edited some not) mucking around with brushes, felt tips, washes and a red pencil.

And of course the compulsory Dredd...

James Taylor: You and I

I recently worked with pictureDRIFT  on an animation for James Taylor's current 2014 US tour. The visuals are for the live performance of his recent single "You and I". Reflecting the lyrics of the song, the animation tells the a story of a man and woman separated from each other by time and space and their journey to be with each other. 

I copied actors in charcoal which were then animated with background.

Peter Pumkinhead

Here's the process I went through to do this little 3 pager for White Cat Press.  The web comic follows the misadventures of Peter Pumkinhead, who has just recently barfed up a skull.

Here are the pencils.

The inks.

The colour - water colour (and a bit of white gouache) over the original inks.

And the finished product - inks and colour merged in PS with a bit of touch up.
