Here is my first editorial that was in the Business Reporter supplement in the Sunday Telegraph.
This was good fun to do, especially the initial process of coming up with a fun idea for this rather dry subject. I definitely need to refine my editorial style of work though. I automatically started to do children's picture book type work which isn't really appropriate for a business supplement editorial. All good practice though.

Have been doing some commissioned work for fashion designer and good friend Edward Lord.
Had alot of fun doing these, learnt alot too. It was nice to work abit more spontaneously and not fussing over ever little detail. Definitely something I'll keep in mind for future work.

Keeping with the whole drawing for a younger audience theme I did this book cover. Was looking through my work and noticed that I'll usual draw a character but never really develop much of a background behind. Doing these sort of book covers will help me in that aspect of my work I hope.

Earl and It
Patrick, Harold and Ethel
Haven't done a post in a while so thought I'd put up some recent sketches for a personal project I'm currently working on. Two are location concepts and the other two are character concepts. Having alot of fun creating these people and places. When I've got it all worked out I hope to turn them into some sort of story book.

Got a letter through the post today from the nice people at Richmond Hill gallery in London saying that one of my pieces (see above) has been chosen to be displayed in the Brave New Worlds Exhibition that takes place 3rd September to 5th November. Very exciting!

Finished one of my final project paintings the other day. It was really nice to do some proper painting again. The canvas is 101cm high by 50cm wide, the scale of it is abit lost in the picture I took, but you get the idea. I've also stuck a few initial sketches up so you can see how the character developed. Just got to do too two more now.
The Lecturers gave us a bunch of competitions to possibly enter all connected to the YCN. I went with the Open University brief. They wanted something that would engage the young folk so I did abit of a silly piece with a cat loving weight lifter. A very photoshoppy piece.
Found a nice little illustration competition set up by a London based magazine called EggMag. Thought I'd have a stab at it. The brief was to show the importance of having flower, trees and all that kinda stuff in urban areas. I went with the whimsical, wonderland approach. Was a pen drawing I photoshopped the hell out of.
In March got through to the regional finals of the Art for Nurture competition set up by Llyods TSB. Got the people's choice award for my piece and a hamper full of posh jam so was pretty chuffed with myself. I went with the theme, 'We succeed together'.
I recently pimped up some second year work. The original brief was to create Car, Home, Travel, Life and Pet insurance booklets for Barcleys Bank. They're watercolours fiddled with on photoshop. Got rid of the text that I photoshopped on them so that they make nice little A5 prints. Left one with text on so you can see how they used to look.
