me thinks a certain someone has been doing an utterly shite job of updating this wee slice of the internet...

anyhoo, the order for the last couple of weeks has been reportage, resulting in a couple of pieces that might hopefully end up in an exhibition put on by the illustration department.

has any one else noticed how fucking _mental_ the coffee shops and what not get round lunch time? good gravy, it's worse than sharks in a blood bank.

idea fishing for our animation project. came up with some wonderfully intricate plot featuring abusive onimatipea before i realized that after effects is the devil's animating program of choice and i was probably going to end up doing nigh on all of this by hand.



but either way, chalk this up as another victory for the Keep It Simple, Stupid school of thought.

so the second year illustration students are in charge of this wee zine called meow that showcases a selection of works from across the three years. this month's theme was portraits, and what would be a more viable reason than that to sit down and doodle the 16th president of the US of A?

skimming through his wikipedia article and boy, did it suck to abraham lincoln.

i think this might also signify the end of my previously totally rebutted advances on the pen brush.

mole skin junk. need to make a serious start on uploading that thing to here since the poor book looks like it could disintegrate at any given moment.

just some pissing around on paper during the edinburgh fringe. be amazed and astounded by ticket reference numbers and poorly organized book keeping!

it was tavi's 21st party this weekend. being too much of a scatterbrain to find the time to go out and get a card, i ended up drawing this wonderfully unflattering visual representation of the birthday girl. shockingly, we're still on speaking terms.

but seriously, good times were had by all, especially her boarder line insane neighbors who called the fuzz on our asses only after the shin ding had pretty much wrapped itself up. way to go guys, way to go.

final design of the as of yet un-named vigilante for nick's film project. hopefully this won't look as goofy as fuck when it comes to putting it together.

more as it happens!

may i present to you something totally bitching?

here be the alternate cover for issue 1 of turning tiger, the book i'm doing for renegade arts and boy does it kick ass. hats off to simon coleby and vicky stonebridge for doing such a bang up job on this. it certainly kicks the stuffing out of my comparatively paltry effort:

best part: funky robot knee cap anatomy.

but yes. you can color me all shades of excited. still no exact release date but i think this is going to be going out some time in december. more news as it happens.


so wait, since when were there pandas on your course?

...gerard way?

but seriously, if you're ever drawing someone while they're drawing you. do it on the same drawing board. hilarity will ensue.
