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.
