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.

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.

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.
