I was so unpopular in high school, the crossing guards used to lure me into traffic!

Annie Edison (as played by Allison Brie) from the excellent Community.

More characters from Community to come, next: El Tigre!

Troy and Abed in the morrrrning!

Troy and Abed from Community. If you don't watch it then get watching it, because its probably the smartest comedy on tv at the moment. Sure, none of the characters are played by millionaire coke addicts who slap porn stars (and were in Hot Shots part deux) but don't hold that against it. I'm going to pay tribute to all the other characters soon but I wanted to start with T-Bone and Cool Abed. UPDATE! Check out my picture of the whole Community cast here!

Holy Shirt!

More Threadless designs ( "Crush Your Paperwork" & "Comix R 4 Dorks!" ). Always fun to do, even if I don't get great scores every time (tiny violin for James). Holding off on submitting any more designs until I get that killer idea that'll blow your mind like a rocket shaped like a t-shirt.

Hire The Barman.

Storyboard artwork for Hire The Barman (London Cocktail Barman Hire).

This was a cool project to do. The most fun part though was posing as a Tom Cruise style cocktail barman for reference photos. I make a great, fake martini!

Check out the full artwork on the site here.

Monster Mash

From my laboratory in the castle east
To the master bedroom where the vampires feast
The ghouls all came from their humble abodes
To get a jolt from my electrodes

Zombies...for godsake they can use doorbells now.

A 2 page comic I did for my upcoming Bath Uni ICIA comic book art workshop to illustrate my process when drawing a page. At some point I'll post the sketches, pencils, inks e.t.c.

Details for the workshops can be found here!

The futher adventures of To The Rescue!

More artwork from a recent issue of Storm Force, the Royal National Lifeboat Institute magazine. Its always a lot of fun to do and recently I've been drawing centre spread action shots of the various boats the RNLI use too.

(Pssst! The children being saved in the comic are dressed like the kids from South Park. I am easily amused.)

Welcome to SModcast!

My tribute to the divine beauty which is SModcast, the weekly podcast of Kevin Smith and Scott Mosier which has provided background sound for my drawing for a few years now. I listen and re-listen to Smith's network of podcasts pretty much every day while I work and they've been vital in me living the life of a pro-illustrator (i.e. me sat at my desk, eating jaffa cakes, cursing myself as I erase a wonky arm for the eighteenth time)

If you haven't heard it before and enjoy deliciously profane sandwiches of hilarity then check it out. My filthy mind insists.

Update: Kevin Smith has seen the pic and deems it "EPIC"!

Run HRH.

A t-shirt design I did last summer for a client.

Enabling Performance Management Synergy Team!!!

This is a piece of artwork I produced in early 2009 for a company who's offices were round the corner from my art college. Its meant to illustrate how the company operates. They were very happy with the artwork but to this day I'm still not sure what it is they do! (something about spaceships?)

TEAm WORK & Sandwich Town!

Here are two unsuccessful Threadless t-shirt designs. Both involving cute cartoon characters happily bounding to their cartoony deaths... No, YOU'RE the one who's weird!!

I really like these designs, its a shame that they didn't get picked but its always fun to play the Threadless game. Stay tuned for more designs soon!

Modern love gets me to the church on time.

More character designs.

Hey that sure is some t-shirt that guy is wearing! I wonder which art-genius designed that? :P

Modern love walks beside me, modern love walks on by.

An art tutor once told me that he liked my art but wouldn't want to live in the world that I'd created through my drawings. I always remembered this and its influenced how I draw and specifically how I design my characters.

These are sketches for a graphic novel idea I've had stuck in my head for years now. It started as a bit of indulgent fantasy and wish fulfillment but I've slowly chipped away at the idea like a bit of marble and I've ended up with a story that I'd like to tell. I'm going to put more character designs up on here soon so I'd love for you to tell me if you could live in their world.

Its a bit like Avatar with less dragons, but ironically with people putting ponytails where they don't belong.

Scott earned the Power of Love.

My tribute to Scott Pilgrim (inspired by an old Street Fighter 2 Turbo poster). The Scott Pilgrim books by Bryan Lee O'Malley are incredible and I've recently re-read them all in preparation for the final chapter and the Edgar Wright directed movie, both of which will rule like massive kings.

Ball ball ball. Footy footy footy!

This is my contribution to Kick Off! published by Tick Tock Books. It was my first published work through my agents Advocate Art and its really cool to finally see it in print. It was a fun job to start my professional career with, even though I know absolutely nothing about footballs.

To The Rescue!

I draw a comic strip for Storm Force magazine, about the Royal National Lifeboat Institute saving lives on the high seas, or in this episode, on shore. This was a fun story to do as it showed a different side of the RNLI.

The artwork has to be seen and approved by the actual lifeguards featured so I had to make sure everything is 100% accurate!

Underneath that are two other illustrations I recently did for RNLI magazine 'Offshore'.

Summer is coming, and I hope I feel better by the time it does...

Every year I draw the cover to the Wanborough show program. This year's picture is a slight alteration of the 2009 cover with added strongman and medieval knight action.

When nine hundred years old YOU reach, look as good YOU will not, hmmmm?

This is just an experiment, dropping colour in PS over an ink wash sketch. I saw badasssss Marvel artist Lenil Yu do something similar and I wanted to try it.

I mean, I DID it, or DID NOT do it...there is no try...

The Doctor & Amy...

Never really been a big Dr.Who fan in the past but whenever I did watch it, I enjoyed it. So I made a point of getting into the new series and I really dig it, its tons o' fun.

Also I love bow ties.

Nyum nyum nyum.

This is a poster I did on spec for Andrew Collins and Richard Herring's brilliant "Collings and Herrin Podcast". I sent it through to Andrew and Richard and got a good response from them but sadly it won't be used. However they did post it on their blog which was great. If you haven't checked out any of their podcasts and you enjoy your satire covered in delicious chocolatey profanity then check them out here.
