Twilight Film Festival postcard

A postcard design for the Twilight Film Festival. I wanted to try and create the effect of the traditonal celluloid film breaking up and becoming fragmented with the arrival of digital cinema.

Billy Bickle

Just cleaning up my computer and found these old drawings from 2003. Character sketches for a children's picture book idea that never went any further. I'd love to do a full picture book someday but think I need to keep honing my craft. Shaun Tan's and Marc Craste's work makes me drool!

Illustration Friday: Wise

My entry for the Illustration Friday theme - Wise. Wanted to create quite a mystical, Scandinavian storybook vibe... like a wise Nordic god keeping an eye on things.

Illustration Friday Entry - Routine

This is my first entry to Illustration Friday submitted for the topic 'Routine'. It's a quick pencil sketch scanned and then coloured in Photoshop. I was aiming to depict a typical daily routine dividing my day into segments of the clock face, but letting the hours bleed into each other.

I guess this is a typical Friday - my mobile phone alarm wakes me up at 6.45am but I'm rubbish at getting out of bed so usually don't surface to around 8am. I'm doing alot of reading at work at the moment and up until yesterday I was getting really annoyed by the amount of email spam I was getting, until my girlfriend kindly told me how to block it.

Friday is usually chips day so a group of us from work go into town for fish and chips from 'The In Plaice'. After work there's often a few drinks before the evening slips into Saturday morning.
