White Boots

As a little personal side project I have been planning some black and white interior illustrations for the Noel Streatfield book 'White Boots', mostly because I was a bit obsessed with it as a child. If I get time I plan to do some more chapter illustrations and possibly a cover.

The Ghost in the Glasshouse II

So after much storyboarding etc (I might do a process point at some later stage) I have finally reached the stage of producing artwork for the scene I imagined in my previous post. The Ghost in the Glasshouse is a comic/picturebook containing mild peril and many plants.

I will be attending the Bologna Book Fair next week (very exciting!) and will be taking dummy books of The Ghost in the Glasshouse along. All of my work will be represented on the CSA stand, although I will also be wandering around bothering publishers.

Repeat Mermaids

Yesterday I found this article on Design Sponge about making repeat patterns, so decided to give it a go. It aalmost works, unfortunately the mermaid's face keeps getting a bit squashed.  I have high hopes for next time though!

Firespotters Comic

A couple of pages from my recent endeavours to make a comic/graphic novel based on my Gran's stories about the war:

Observational Painting

The reason behind the complete lack of updates lately is slightly better than usual - I have started a Masters degree! Because of this I'll be posting some things which are different from my usual work - like this observational painting from Cambridge Folk Museum.
