Rootin' Tootin'


I've been working hard - I promise! ... Just not so much as the blog updating. Over the next few weeks i'm going to right that and be posting some catch up stuff that i've done over the last few months.

February Life Sketches

A selection of life sketches from the last month. I'm trying my best to get many more of these done in general and get some select ones online once a month. Watch this space!

January Sketch Dailies


12th January


14th January

So far 2015 has started off very busy - in a good way! I'm working hard on paid work and also simultaneously taking courses in character design. If I get any down time I will definitely get back to Sketch Dailies as I love the concept, the community around it and tackling topics I wouldn't usually consider. For now, here are the couple I completed during January.

... How is it nearly the end of February already?!

2014 - A Year of Two Halves


I've been going back and forth to this since the end of last year but i'm going to stop stewing and call it 'finished'. This was a really personal piece for me and for a while I was debating not putting it online but it's good to share, so here it is.

2014 was literally a year of two halves for me. For the first half of 2014 I was living in the South of Spain, where I had moved to back in August of 2013, and working for a mobile gaming company in Gibraltar. At the beginning of July the job I had took me back to London where I was reunited with my much missed other half, family and friends.

I couldn't begin to try and sum up the experiences and adventures I had last year. Each place has it good and bad points. I had a wonderful experience living and working abroad but I was so happy to come back to the big city. In this piece i've picked a small selection of a whole bunch of highlights I was lucky enough to experience throughout the year; the left half representing my time abroad (Jan- June) and the right half representing my time back in London (July - December)

Sketch Dailies 2014

I looked at my Blogger dashboard to see that I, shamefully, had fewer uploads this year than the last four years. I have a proper New Years post due any day now but in the mean time i've done some tidying up and catching up with sketches and artwork that has been posted elsewhere throughout the year. Starting with a great discovery during 2014 - Sketch Dailies. If you somehow haven't heard of Sketch Dailies, check out the amazing plethora of work over at - https://twitter.com/Sketch_Dailies

Candycanedeer


I can hardly believe it's that time of year again! Christmas is nearly here and although i've been struck down with the lurgy this week it isn't dampening my festive spirit. Here's the rare, but sought after, cousin of the flying reindeer - the Candycanedeer!

If I don't get to post again before the big day; have a wonderful Christmas everyone :) Eat, drink and be merry!

Halloween Twitter



It's been a very busy few months and I'm currently very snowed under with all kinds of work. It's good fun but, unfortunately, I can't show any of it yet. I'm hungry to find some time to do some more personal work but, with deadlines approaching, it'll be a little while yet until I get some time to myself - I'm looking forward to it! In the mean time, here's a quick sketch I did for a Halloween themed Twitter picture.
