Ode to a Lost Shoe

Hullo Folks, here are some illustration I recently did for Shy Yeti's new book; 'Ode to a Lost Shoe'.
They've been completed a couple of months now but I didn't want to display them properly till the book was released. The collection of stories relate the various adventures My Yeti and his shoe have shared (among other things).

Below is some branding I have also created so that Mr Y can show himself off to full advantage. Enjoy!

And in the news this month...

Since my recent win in the iphone cover design comp, I have sold a fair few of the design. I am of course chuffed that they have been shifting but I was wondering if there was any reason in particular.
Well my question was answered when some kind soul at Redbubble sent me this:

It's the Chicago Tribune supplement. My work has never been described as a Stocking Stuffer before :)
Ok so it's not exactly a feature, but any publicity is good and it's definitely helped sales! So I'm happy.

Life Drawing December 2011

Hello folks. Been a couple of weeks since my last update so I'm going to pummel you with two all at once. First off here's some pickings from a couple of recent life drawing sessions.
Yes you guessed it - more naked ladies lounging around.

Life Drawing 09.11.11

Ok I'm a bit late with this but better late than never! Here are some of the results of this weeks life drawing. The first two are quick 3 minute poses. The second to last one is a 10 minute pose and the last is a 40min pose. Hope you like em.

Oh my - I won a competition!

So a little while ago I entered a competition to design an iphone cover for the Redbubble website. The brief was to remember the time before mobile phones. When everyone kept a notepad and pen beside the phone and doodled weird things while talking on the phone.
Anyway to cut a long story short I won :)
This is the design;

And here's a link to the site;

The prize is 4 iphone cases made up in the design, $200 to spend on the site, and most excitingly, a Wacom inkling!! I'm super excited to get my hands on it.

I have to thank all the folks that took the trouble to vote for me - I wouldn't have even been in the running if it wasn't for them xxxx

As for the vouchers, the first thing I'm probably gonna get is a hoodie of this :)

Oh lastly, Redbubble have been in touch and apparently the Chicago Tribune want to do a piece about the competition and a little bit about me O.O
So I'll post that as and when it happens...

Life Drawing 03.11.11

My first blog entry! Hi 'n all that. Most of the stuff I will be posting on here are my daily sketches or anything I happen to be working on. I hope you enjoy my posts.

I'll jump straight in. Last night I attended my (as of recent weeks) weekly life drawing class. Bit of a mixed result last night. Some pretty poor stuff and some ok sketches. These are my favourite 3, proportion mistakes n all.
