Wanted to try and develop more storytelling & atmosphere for this years desktop project. So I thought I’d re-interpret some ancient myths & stories. Here’s the first – Icarus.

Meet Porgi the Pig Dog.
I’ve had an ember of an idea for a children’s book intermittently in the back of my head for a little while now.
I’m lucky enough to have been pretty busy since setting up as a freelancer in 2016 & have found plenty of the usual excuses not to have really made any kind of proper start – BUT I think it’s so important to have a little something to do for yourself away from corporate land to keep your artistic appetite going. As hard as it is sometimes to motivate yourself to be creative when you’ve had eight hours at your desk doing it for someone else – let’s try to try a bit harder.
Here’s what I’ve got so far. Quite a way to go!

Was set a fantastic brief for a custom illustration by my friend’s six year old daughter, Orla. Now a big, beautiful gyclee print sitting proudly on her bedroom wall. Welcome to Orlyland…
Yes is is far too early to talk about it, so here’s a poster for the SIS Drama dept. instead… tickets available soon.
After improving their submission process and changing the rules about music, had another go this year and guess what?? RUNNER UP! You can now catch this puppy intermittently on E4 for a year – woohoo!
Thought I’d have a bash at a 10 second sting for the E4 competition. Thanks to Reeda Sounds for the super massive smash up backing track. Set the slightly disturbed style prrretty nicely, although on submission day system went down – epic E4 fail. Here’s my entry anyways…

Pondering a lot lately. How to get more illustration work? Should you keep a set style? What is my style?
Wanted to work on more of a developed scene and some more tonal stuff today. This is Bimble favourite, good ole Uncle Eddy, the most kitted up camper in festy ville.
This week’s illustration Friday theme word was ‘identical’, this is my offering. Got to love Photoshop – create, copy & flip innit.
Some character studies and a test piece I did for a kid’s book competition submission.
Think the pastels and pencil style works nicely together. Still need to work on my scene compositions though, this one is a bit too straight eh.
This one looks a bit out of sorts.
