Mice & Dice




I'm currently working with Michael and Stephen Stagliano on their new board game; 'Mice & Dice'. They are funding the game's production through Kickstarter and it's really working out to be a fun project to be working on, not to mention they are fantastic clients to deal with!

Above you will see my box art illustration and three sample playing cards for each of the three categories (Mice, Cheese and Rats). If you'd like to learn more about the project, the game as a whole and are interested in backing it; the Mice & Dice Kickstarter page can be found here:

Roaring 20's


I am pleased to announce that I am now a member of 'Girls Drawing Girls'! If you haven't heard of them before, they are a fantastic group of female artists who create great work that can be found at the places below: 




I'm very pleased to have been accepted among their ranks. This is the first weekly topic I've been able to get involved with - 'Roaring 20's'. I purposely stayed away from pure black and white. There was a lot of back and forth with the saturation settings but I'm quite happy with the final result. 

There has been a distinct lack of updates so far this year, that has unfortunately been due to a month long bout of sickness and then a big uptake in freelance work. However I have a brief respite and I plan on making the most of it!

Spinning Geisha


After having a very slow (not my fault, I promise!) start to the year i'm trying to get back into things slowly with the aid of Stephen Silver's wonderful 'Character Design Shuffle' app. I think in future i'll group a couple of these together per post but i'll start with this one as it's my favourite one so far. 

The words in the shuffle were:


Human - White
Female
Geisha
Spinning

The Three Kings


Happy Three Kings day to all my Spanish and Latin American friends!

This is the first year I've ever experienced this holiday and I had a great time at the parade of the Three Kings in my town. I really enjoy learning about and experiencing different culture's traditions and celebrations. If you're celebrating today I hope you've had a wonderful time with your family and friends :)

What a Difference 12 Hours can Make


Happy New Year everyone! 

Unfortunately, cracking New Year's Eve celebrations are often followed by a sofa ridden, hangover day. This was the fate that befell me a couple of days ago, what a difference 12 hours can make!
