Atlantis Drawings

Here are some drawing of Atlantis, I don't often draw this level of detail any more so it was a fun and slightly mind blowing project to work on.



This illustration is for a project I am involved with in Plymouth called Resurgam, it is a live adventure game which will take place across the city and will involve a treasure hunt for the lost pearl of Plymouth. Its awesome, the whole project is looking really suave and exciting you can get more information Resurgam on the facebook page or website.

Kuhl-cher




I only went and did some Illustrations for Kuhl-cher!

Kuhl-cher is a really lovely little magazine and there is a website is currently being constructed, it always makes me smile when I see cool projects like this going on in the SouthWest so if you like drawings, stories, poems and all that jazz check out the facebook page and look out for the website.

The illustration above is of a local poet with quite possibly the best hair in the world. The illustration below is for the homepage on the website, the brief was 'little man vs big man' so I got to draw giants again hooray!






Moo and Two!



Soooo I am going to be exhibiting some work at Moo and Two which is an Art Gallery and Tea Shop in Mevagissey. I will post some photos up of the exhibition soon but in the meantime if you happen to be in Cornwall you should go to get some tea and have a little look around. They have some really cool work in the gallery and some delicious hot beverages. BOOM!

Oh yeah, completely forgot to post about this!

So me and Ben did the cover for Curious magazine a while back and what with finishing my degree and having to work I forgot all about it. They wanted us to collaborate and mix our work up together. Squirrels needed to be included which suited me as I am rather fond of those little overlooked bushy tailed gems of the woodland world.

Here is the front and back cover yah!





There's interviews and other stuff inside. You can see more of Bench's work here or here, you should have a look, he's a bleddy good guy.

Here are some photos of my Sad Circus bear resin toys, beautiful photography by the fabulous Paul Mounsey you can see more of his work here





Little Book of Hell

For the other half of my major study I decided to face two of my biggest fears, being serious and drawing people! The illustrations for 'The Little Book of Hell' are based very loosely on Dantes Inferno, here are some of the pages! I spent a lot of time considering the layout and how I could use space to help the book flow in a interesting way.
