Comics are for geeks!

This is a piece I did at the start of the year for a project that has yet to happen, but it turned out really well and it represents my best renditions of all the characters. Plus it was a fun break from the important college work I was supposed to be doing.

Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?

Oh, he's very popular. The sportos, the motorheads, geeks, sluts, bloods, wastoids, dweebies, dickheads - they all adore him. They think he's a righteous dude.

Wedding Comics...

A commission for a one year wedding anniversary. Ink washes and water colours.

The Vampire World!!

Another comic book cover for the awesome Covered Blog. This is maybe one of my favorite pieces of artwork. I love the zoom effect on that chump at the front being sucked in by one of the tentacles and the slimy texture on the alien looks great (adjusts bow tie).

Peter Parker, you lovable goof!

This was a lot of fun to do. I took a scene from Amazing Spider-Man 50 (circa 1967) and redrew it in my own style (see the original here).

I love the scene because it sums up what's great about Spider-Man; Peter Parker is so resigned to his role as a down on his luck dork-nerd that he's too oblivious to see that two beautiful 'gals' are obsessed with him, and the perfect life that he pines for so much is right infront of his face (if his head wasn't up his own arse). He's without a doubt my favorite comic character because he's so self absorbed that he makes life twice as hard for himself, the kind of interesting character trait that you don't find much in superheroes.

Next I'll do the same with an action scene from another Stan Lee/John Romita issue.

Update! Now featured on the Repaneled blog!

Storm Force!!

I've got a great job doing the back page comic for Storm Force, the RNLI lifeboat association's magazine. Its a really fun gig, drawing true life adventures of high seas rescues and the like.
Above is my "audition" piece I did to get the gig. I don't want to blow my own trumpet, but I'm pretty good at doing torrential rain...


Two pieces of artwork I did for summertime funtimes. Top is my third annual cover image for the Wanborough Show program. This time however the picture was also used on a beer pump (Wanborough Showtime 4.0%), which was pretty cool.

The second piece was for Evesham Community Hospital's Riverside party. It was a quick piece but it was fun to draw the Chinese lanterns.

Spider-Man: Covered!

Here's my version of Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-Man issue 121, as featured on the excellent Covered Blog. Check out the original version of the cover and the rest of the site here.

I've started thinking about getting work in magazine illustration, so this is my first piece of artwork based on an existing article. Its a story from an issue of Empire magazine (circa last summer, big pop out Incredible Hulk on the cover) about the rise and fall of movie cash-in pop songs like that terrible Titanic one and that equally terrible Robin Hood (Prince of thieves) one.

I still maintain that MC Hammer's song for The Addams Family was awesome though.

Six artist, Twelve words.

Here's the flyer for a small exhibition I'm taking part in in September. Each of the six artists involved were given two random words and asked to create a short comic story around them. I was given 'Key' and 'Pulse' and proceeded to write the most insane comic ever. If you're in the area you should come and check it out, there are some amazing artists involved.

What Happens...

Here are my character designs for "What Happens..." a brilliant comic book written by Ian Moore. The story follows Jon and Sue, a couple from Scotland that get caught up in a crazy world of super powered meta-singularities, inquisitive extra terrestrials, and a massive robot that smashes New York right up. Above are my first designs which needed a little tweak to capture the essence of the characters...

Here is my second pass at the main characters which both Ian and I agreed on. More 'What Happens...' to come soon, Keep watching the comic shelves! (seriously, watch them, I steal stuff)

Friday, 31 July 2009 makes me feel good!

So literally hours after I posted my Ghostbusters picture on this site and deviantart, the AWESOME guys at crowned it as "The best depiction of the original Ghostbusters film...ever!" I'm pretty proud of this. I wanted to do the poster as my ulitmate tribute to my favorite film and if I can get a review that good from hardcore fans of the movie then I guess my job is done (claps metaphorical dust off of hands).

If you want to check out the post about my picture (and a badass Ghostbusters site to boot) check it out here.

I am now king for the day and will wear a crown (made of underpants) to signify this triumph!

Cats and dogs, living together...MASS HYSTERIA!!

The Spook Central Centerfold...

This was a lot of fun to do, I've had the idea scribbled as a little doodle in my sketchbook for ages so it was good to finally turn it into reality. Plus I finally drew a version of Bill Murray that looked like Bill Murray!

Megan = Metal

I saw this photo of Megan Fox, firing off a mad bird, on the internet and this idea pooped into my brain. A goofy (but ssssexxxy) evening's fun.

There is nothing you can possess which I cannot take away.

Raiders Of The Lost Ark... part two of my greatest movies tribute. It took me a long time to love Raiders but now its taken its place in my top 5.

This took a lot of planning and I'm really happy with how it came together. A lot of the effects came out of happy accidents while playing around with photoshop. I still think my Harrison Ford looks a little too much like Dennis Quaid though (which is funny cos he's the poor man's Harrison Ford).

History is gonna change...

This took about 3 days. Played with different colours and gradients to get the right feel. Thought I would do some decent film images for my portfolio so this is part one of the 'James's top five movies collection' (actually its my 3rd favorite film but you get it).

This is based on an unused design for the original movie poster by one of my favorite artists, Drew Struzan.

Boop boop be doop!

Russell Brand... I've listened to his radio shows a lot while I work and its one of the things that's helped me through my college course. God bless you Rusty Brandstein!!!

Nerd Alert!!

The Goonies. My fifth and final movie for my college project. This has come out really well and apart from a little tweaking here and there its pretty much finished. Plus the 3D works if you've got a pair of glasses handy. Also the amount of bats I've had to draw for it have given me nightmares about getting bit by vampire bats, those little hairy jerks.

Bootleg Bill.

This is a tee design I submitted to a few weeks ago. I got some nice comments but didn't get a great score so it doesn't look like my fashion designing career is going to take off just yet. But I've got some other ideas so maybe I'll be on the catwalks in the future (when presumably they'll have ran out of 80's and 90's clothes to rip off and they'll move on to the 'retro 2000' look. Take THAT fashion industry!)

EXCLUSIVE: Dogs love bike rides and buckling their seat belts!

Here are two comic strips I did for 'The Bobby Club', a newsletter given to children by the police. The stories feature Bob, my miniature bull terrier getting into minor road-safety based adventures and learning his lesson from a friendly copper named (confusingly) PC Bob. They're always fun to do and I myself get to learn a little something about safety, so everyone wins.

Jack and son have a beautiful heart to heart chat. Just before he topples over the edge of sanity and goes insane, crazy, axe-murderer style. This was a weird bit of experimentation which I'm pretty happy with, kind of a "throw everything at the wall, see what sticks" deal, but it works well with the movie. Plus I got to use flock wallpaper in my work, and what kind of an artist would I be if I never utilized the RAW power of flock wallpaper?

You've always been the caretaker...

A test piece for my two page Shining comic. Appropriately creepy.

Wolfie's just fine honey...

Another piece from my "Motion Picture" college project. If Ghostbusters is my favorite film, Terminator 2 (Judgement Day) is certainly a close second. Like Ghostbusters, it's a film I've watched a hundred times since I was a youngster and one I'll most likely watch a thousand times more before Our Lord God Terminates me himself. Praise him..... Arnold that is...

Who are these guys?

A Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid comic. The idea behind my college project is to draw segments of my favorite films in a graphic novel style, each with a style of art that compliments the genre of the film (and the mood of the scene). So I battled with my old enemy 'water colours' and gave Newman and Redford the two pages of sepia toned brush strokes they deserve. I'm not totally happy with the result but it was a good experiment and an interesting journey out of my comfort zone.
