The Usual Suspects

Done in photoshop. Here’s the original pencil sketch:


Illustration Friday – Early

May 26, 2010

Don’t think this is the most original idea for an illustration, but here’s my entry for this week’s Illustration Friday theme: Early

The early bird etc etc…

Those are actually my wife’s slippers, and no they’re not my PJs or sleeping hat.

Realised today how bad some of my early posts are – please forgive me…but enjoy this one.



Where’s Frank Rain?

May 22, 2010

I’m missing the webcomic Frank Rain, by Eric Merced so thought I’d throw this little puppy together.  It was loads of fun and hope it’s done Eric’s work a little bit of justice…

Loads of fun to do. Done in Photoshop.

Another Post – Eric Merced Book

May 19, 2010

Greetings and apologies for yet another post in like 3 days…but trust me it’s worth it!

The great ERIC MERCED sent me over a copy of his book Black White and it’s AWESOME!! Go check it out here and get your copy.

The personalised envelope was a great touch. Can’t stress enough how great this is with so many more illustrations in it than I expected. He’s such a talented artist and I can’t speak highly enough of him as a person either!

Just a quick pic I did.  Had a Snoopy feel to it after I’d finished…kinda…

Did in Photoshop as ever

Here’s the initial pencil sketch…

Also wanted to say, I’ve been blessed to have become friends with some awesome artists over the last six months and they’ve helped me no end.  One of those is Drew Pocza and so really wanted to point you in the direction of his awesome webcomic, Pokeweed.  PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE check out his work…

More soon!
