'Winter'

This drawing is the beginning of a set; Four Seasons.
Drawn with black Rotring and silver Edding on thick cartridge paper.


I gave this to my Fella for Valentine's. 
I thought for a moment I should have drawn him 'Summer',
then figured, nah, he'll totally get the morbid sentiment.

Sky Doll Spray Painting

This was an exercise in using colour.
I'm very grateful for this introduction to the amazing comic which is SKY DOLL.

Jim vision @ End Of The Line chose this image for me to paint. 
It was a great days painting having Jim on hand to give me tips. 
Check out is work here;

Kids Love Ink


This is my drawing and thigh. 
I had an itch for ink and after seeing someone else have my work tattooed, 
I figured why the hell not. 




Tattooed by the very skilled Charlie Shazer @ Kids Love Ink, 
Cheshire Street, off Brick Lane.
(Will post the colour sessions as and when)





Elfin x StrangeFruit


 The switch blade pendant is made by the very talented Graham Mitchell, 
check more of his wonders out here;  http://strangefruitlondon.blogspot.com/

We applied my drawing to the case using laser engraving.

The proud owner of this one off pendant is Ewen Bower.

Axe Tattoo





During December Ewen Bower had my axe drawing permanently etched upon his calf.
I felt very flattered (and a tad scared).

Tattooed by our good friend Barney.

Xmas Card 2011

Every year I draw and make a Christmas card for friends and family.

I drew flowers to frame my character and inked the image using my light box.
I spent most of my time dotting with the tiniest pen.
I then drew a colour pencil layer on a separate sheet, scanned both and merged.

Finally I printed the image onto photo paper, 
then spray mounted each one onto black, navy, grey or green card.
(60 times! Must get better ventilation in my place)
