The Monster Talent Show

A few spreads from a book I finish Illustrating a while back. It's part of the Eyeball Animation series of books. A lot of fun to work on.

Haven't been able to do many blog posts recently as I'm in the process of moving to the other side of the country to Bristol. But heres an editorial I did for the Business Reporter front cover that was in the daily Telegraph.

Piles of Pancakes

Here are a few scenes (text to be added) from a Children's book/iPad app I've been working on called, 'Piles of Pancakes'. I'm near the end of this project and am really interested to see the final iPad version of it as my illustrations will be animated and interactive.

I've been a very busy bunny hence why there hasn't been any blog updates recently. I would put bits and pieces from the various commissions I'm working on up on here, but contracts, copyright and all that sort of guff means it's probably not a good idea. So I thought I'd put up a birthday card I did for my Granddad's 90th.

It's all kicking off!

Sincere lack of new work on the blog is due to a couple of big commissions I'm working on at the moment. More info soon....
