I was asked to create an Illustrated Contents Page for the launch of an online magazine called Tribe. There was no brief, only that it was the 'launch' issue.. so I went for an old circus cannon theme :D Really pleased with the outcome.
"tribe magazine is a UK based, international online only creative arts magazine, dedicated to showcasing the best in creative visual arts. Our ethos is for creativity and we work with a range of artists across all creative visual mediums, whether local to the South West of England, national or international."
They're constantly on the lookout for new exciting artists, so submit some work :D
Hey! Sorry everything has been quiet on my blog! I've managed to blag an apprenticeship at Loki Ink tattoo studio in Plymouth. AMAZING! It's keeping me extremely busy but I get to draw all day long - it's like a dream come true!
Here's a sleeve I designed as part of a challenge on my three day trial.. kinda tempted to get it myself.
Somebody cancelled so my boss kindly let me experiment on his practice leg!!
Here is the result of my first EVER tattoo (Diamond Geeza)
I've just completed this illustration for an awesome local Plymouth band called Dead Poets (as if you couldn't tell..)
The band are awesome so I'm honoured to have been asked to design them a t-shirt. It was a real challenge for me but I'm really happy with the outcome. Get yourselves down to the White Elephant Clothing Launch to check it out in person and look at all of the other amazing White Elephant t-shirts.
I dressed up as my character for my assessment last week. Just in case you can't really tell.. I am a zombie. On my neck and shoulder is a temporary tattoo of the 'who could ever learn to love a beast' design. I had some trouble putting it on, but the fact that it wrinkled made it look like rotting flesh, so that was a mega bonus! I love fancy dress!
So, I feel like I haven't left my room for about a year and I've worked my way through more robot and alien related films than any brain could possibly handle. But I'm really excited about what I'm creating so here's a sneaky peek at the first 4 pages of my book :D
