What A Mug!

WELL I Must admit, it has been a while since my last post. I don't know why, but this year seems to be rocketing by and I've been feeling rushed off of my feet with things. I think the time is approaching for a bit of a holiday and take stock of the last few months to try and get some grounding back in my day-to-day life. Enough of my rambles though. I have recently discovered that RedBubble (the online store that hosts/sells my artwork for me) has started selling some additional items that you can get your artwork added to, one of them being mugs.

SO I Thought, 'why not' and got some of my artwork added on to mugs. Not only that, but I've managed to find some time to squeeze in one or two new designs as well - enjoy:

THIS FIRST One is called, 'Titan' and is inspired by the giant Warhammer 40,000 Titans with a dollop of Godzilla:

THIS NEXT One is called, 'Police Box' clearly inspired by Doctor Who and is just a random idea that popped into my addled brain:

HERE COME The mugs! So, to give you an idea of how the artwork appears, here is a hoodie that I designed that I have now taken the artwork design from and put onto mugs.

AND NOW How that same design (and similar) appear on these awesome mugs:

JUST TO Finish off with, a throw cushion. For some reason these things appear on beds throughout the world. Yet, they never seem to get used for anything other then 'dressing'. It's odd, but any-who, if you're going to dress you bed with cushions, why not one traveling at warp speed captain...

Samurai Cowgirl

WELL, IN My last post I mentioned that I have a couple of commissions to finish off before starting on some of my own projects. Always trying to stay uber-efficient I thought I would kill two birds with one stone. One of the commissions I'm working on is a anime/manga illustration of some characters, and after much head scratching and learning how not to illustrate toon styled artwork digitally, I chucked in the towel and grabbed my drawing gear from the dusty home it now has lived for the last few years - my attic.

WOULDN'T YOU Know it, within five whole minutes with a pen a bit of paper I'd cracked something that with my PC and Photoshop I couldn't do in ten hours of effort. There is a lesson in there somewhere. So, now happy with the toon styling and the commission underway it got me thinking about one of my future projects, and so I bashed this together. For two reasons, one is that I needed the drawing practice for a character I'm thinking of using, and two is that I needed to find a good way to get a 'real' image into my PC for colouring that didn't have a large negative impact on the look of it.

THIS TURNED Out to be a straightforward process of taking a picture of the line drawing on my phone, email to myself and then download it onto my PC for colouring. I'm pleased to say this worked fantastically. If you followed on online comic I used to write and illustrate a few years ago you might just recognise who the girl is.

Witch Hunting Comes to an End

HERE ARE The last two illustrations for a book I've been working on called Witchmania. I've really enjoyed putting these images together and I think these last two are among my favorite from the set, especially the one called, 'Dance with the Devil'.

Burn the Witch

Dance with the Devil

THAT'S IT For the book illustrations for now, I'm taking a bit of a break whilst I have a think about working on one of my own projects and tie-up a couple of other commissions I'm working on for now.
