Birds...


I was asked to commission a painting for the new born daughter of a relative who was going through a bad patch, so to brighten up their day and to add a little conversation piece I painted this picture of all sorts of birds doing and wearing various things...

365...


So...I've come up with an idea for another live project (the other one, still on the drawing board, will be posted soon i'm sure). I've decided, to keep me drawing everyday, I will start a project called '365' which will consist of an illustration a day, drawn by me to show something that happened to me that was exciting. The point being to make a series at the end called '365' to show my year in illustrations.

I will keep you all updated as this progresses. I am aware that I must have to lead a pretty amazing life to draw something exciting everyday, however as most of my friends know, I tend to take joy in the little things too...so this could be interesting.

Saw This Ages Ago...

This advert popped up one evening and I loved it as soon as I saw it...not only because of the incredibly amazing song choice, but mainly because of the illustration and animation being used on a hand-made element....

















To view the whole advert, which I highly recommend, visit this page...

Experimental Drawing...

These are a couple of my 'drawing from film' outcomes from a recent project...taking quotes from 'The Big Lebowski', I illustrated with an appropriate image from the film at that point, using variety of mediums...
