Well..... This weekend im in Falmouth, its pretty awesome generally because i get to see the home (xbox/guitar/films). I posted out on my facebook asking what people wanted to see and so i'm working through a few requests. I won't do another one until later this week because i have a poster to do for my boys in Evita.

Spring Offensive reworking

I guess i’ve been working on and off since christmas, this project has taken up most of my time. It’s a reworking of the artwork i created last year, but being re-released state side…. its not very often you get a second shot at artwork so i did everything i could to turn it into what i wanted.

check out spring offensive as i’m fairly sure they will show there potential at some point this year.


winters coming.......

Good evening all,

If anyone was wondering where i'd gotten to then hopefully this blog will explain all! I took it upon myself to take some time out from illustration as i felt things were getting a little bit stale and my work wasn't really going in the direction i had once hoped. This was mainly down to a portfolio of work that i was confident in at the age of 20 but four years on i don't feel its relevant to me and it certainly doesn't represent me.

So although brief i hope that explains things to a certain extent, please now turn your attention to my latest bit of work. This is not a commission but instead a personal piece. I will continue to produce these over the next few months in an effort to create a portfolio that i am once again proud of.

All feed back welcome as usual, i hope you enjoy this piece.

This isnt actually finished, like full thing but this is the cover so i can post this as Matt is fine with it.

Its quite hard to explain the direction of this because you need to hear the CD which you can, when its out!

not got much else going on aside from this but thats likely to change.

hope everyone is well!
