A recent piece of work from my college course. This was all about taking a real location as reference to set a story in. I used the Oasis leisure centre across the road from the college.

A flyer for a Swindon club called The Furnace. This was done under the umbrella of ZedIsDead Design, the design company set up by my housemates, Joe and Chris. This is my first attempt at a gig poster so I hope it encapsulates the indie-rock it's promoting...

Here Come The Fuzz...

So this is my latest bit of art, finished literally minutes ago. When I'm not hard at work at art college I like to take time out and relax with my hobby of drawing stuff. This is what I like to do most, film poster esq drawings of my favorite films. I'm a massive fan of Simon Pegg, Edgar Wright and Nick Frost and actually felt a bit guilty when I realised that I liked Hot Fuzz even more than Shaun Of The Dead. Then I remembered that the fact that their second film was even better than their first was a good thing. Then I also remembered I was a dork for putting that much thought into it and beat myself up. I learnt a valuable lesson that day.

I'm Really happy with the colouring but I wish the faces came out a bit better. Maybe when I do an drawing of their next film it will be an improvement on this one eh?

(I am a massive dork)

Your regular run-of-the-mill welcome...

Hello! Welcome to my blog-site-website-page-site. My name is James, I'm 25 and when I grow up I'd like to be a graphic novelist (yes that is a posh word for someone who does comics, well done for noticing). I'll be posting all my artwork on this page, both my college work (I'm a sequential illustration student) and any pictures I produce during what I like to call 'James's pencil funtimes'.

If you enjoy anything you see on this blog leave me a comment, or if you are a rich sultan needing my bank account details to deposit large ammounts of totally real money so it won't fall into the hands of evil doers let me know about that too.

So yeah, have fun, get smart.
