sketch book work for the current project. mmmm. messy, messy thumbnails.

but yeah, when it came to it, i found the scenes featuring royal were the ones i was itching to jump to right off the bat. i think i might have a thing for drawing snobby, aloof types.

scrapings from the mole skin.

carrying on the spirit of the t in the park doodles, i went to see amanda palmer when she played at union chapel.

my god. it was electric. couldn't quite believe that the keyboard was still standing by the end of it. if she's playing near you, you'd better be there.

i also may have ended up dropping a stupid amount of money on a painting by the totally bitching daniel van nes ( that was auctioned off at the end of the show when the original winning bidder flaked out.

huzzar for impulse buying?

part deux of the jekell and hyde project.

this got real OTT real fast. also, nothing makes you feel like a right sociopath real fast like drawing little girls being squished underfoot on an over crowded train.

best part: hands down those funky, funky lamp posts.

more dicking on starbucks. don't know WHY this seems to be something of a reoccurring theme- those boys and girls in green do a bang up job of keeping the general public all jazzed up on dangerously caffeinated/sugary beverages!

derived from the fact that coffee houses have become the bastion of the wireless office. huzzarr for the wonders of the communication age! also, why does everything look 1000x more pimp on brown paper?

and once again, it's birthday time. god damn, too many people are born in november. how fantastically un-chic am i to also be celebrating mine tomorrow?

anyhoo, this one's for you mr. hassan, you craziest of party animals. hope you had/have a good one.

hoy hoy.

our current project's to do 6 pages worth of illustration + cover for a book of our (limited) choice. here are some INCREDIBLY rough (and quite possibly plagiaristastic) thumbnails for the latter. i was really digging that first one too till i realized i'd just subconsciously re-hashed the cover for michale chambon's the escapist.

currently working on a cleaner version of the twin towers nod.
huzzah for originality!

t'was ben's 22nd this weekend. as such, it was crappy, unflattering card time again.

back from our first book based illustration project. we were given a wee slither of text from jekell & hyde that we had to thumbnail the shit out of and then come up with three 'rough' illustrations. it's kinda meh. i'm particularly digging the complete lack of flow between the separate segments.

... go logic!

more aftermath from the reportage project. this image is severally lacking in zombie action.

hoo boy, that's some ugly ass typography. also, nothing gets the heart racing quite like sending coke flying all over the work you've got to present for assessment in five minuets.

warning: this image contains astronomical levels of twee. gah! totally should have done something with the spokes because this is more stationary that a rymans. BOOM BOOM!

this is why you shouldn't be cheap and try to weedle your way out of dropping four pounds or so on an anniversary card.

a very happy all saints day to all. it warms the cockles of my heart that the christian church recognizes the importance of 90's girl bands. O HO HO HO.

more scrapings from the mole skin. hands down that gherkin doodle is The Greatest Thing i will ever draw.

man, i am totally not blowing off eiting the never ending animation project by pottering around on blogspot.
