Picking up the brush again

October 25, 2010

I have a new painting to show off, and no it’s not a little sketch or a glorified doodle it’s an actual painting which took me a good week (on and off) to finish!

To be honest, I’d love to blab for ages and ages about what it represents and how it has a deep philosophical meaning but the truth is I just wanted to paint and this is what came out.

Beforehand I was flicking through some of my old books and found a doodle of a robot sitting at a bar and I thought to myself ‘I’d really like to paint that’ so I went ahead just for fun of painting something.

Having that said, it might actually be a sneak preview of some of the stuff that’ll be going into the next exhibition :p

Is it…..a Dinosaur?!

November 12, 2009


Just a quick little painting today, I was having a little flick through some of my sketchbooks and found a doodle of this, at the time i was wondering if in millions of years robots will come across fossilized humans and put them in museums etc(yup that’s the kinda stuff I think about.)

I’m sure It’s entirely possible :P

Have a nice day!

100 Days Of Monsters

September 30, 2009

Greetings spacefans!

Hope everyones doing good! I realise ive been blabbing about myself for a good while, so now’s about the time for me to talk about some other arty people that excite me.

I Cant quite remember how i stumbled apon Stefan Bucher, I think i was trawling through some comic forums and his name popped up, anyway, what i like about Stefan is he draws monsters every single day!

on his site there’s literally hundreds of them and a lot of the time poeple go on and write cool stories about them and its quickly becoming a little bit of a interweb phenomenon.

this guys my fav :)

bonemonseterStefan uses a really cool technique of blobbing ink then blowing it about to make cool shapes before turning it into a monster, i tried it myself, obviously its not quite as cool but not bad for a first try?

treeHe’s called tree boy, maybe someone could write him a story?

for more about Stefan have a peep at his site or have a swatch through his book,i got it from borders and its rad!

take care!

oops a wee edit here, i put a link to this on his site and look he got back!

stefan got back!

amazing!

Horris

August 1, 2009

Ive been trying to think of some new characters recently and while i was sitting on the train today this little idea popped in my head.
i thought it must be quite hard being a vampire, especially if you have a bit of a guilty conscience.
so i got out my little black book (no not that one) and doodled this little guy.

As you can see he’s having a little trouble adapting to being a vampire, though im sure one day he will bite a real person, or even a real bear!

I like the name Horris, i dont know why but i think it suits him, I also thought a nice black gothic wooden frame would suit him so i made it so!

A perfect match!

Hope everyones good!

Thanks for reading take care!
