Here is a commission I did last month for a lovely lady named Sandee a contact made through Twitter. The brief was to use a poem she had written to create a piece of artwork to be presented at a wedding. Sandee would be giving the drawing to her friend as a wedding present in a frame and possibly reading the poem out at the event. I had to incorporate an illustration of the couple looking like Lego men into the drawing, this would be a constant theme at the wedding.
The pink and blue colours represent the coming together of masculine and feminine, the couple are stood together at the beginning of a path ready to take the journey of marriage together.
A fairly large piece of around 10" x 10" which I really enjoyed doing.
I hope everyone had a lovely day and I wish the couple all the best.

My good friend Simon did me a favour recently and apparently i owe him a blog post in return, so here it is! Simon likes warhammer, so i thought I'd draw him as a warhammer soldier thingy, he's like totally mean and stuff.
If your interested, Simon keeps a blog about warhammer and such things which can be found here:

Here is another joke that I have illustrated for comedy writer Bernard Morris, hopefully we will find a publisher for this one too after our previous success!

Here is a new avatar that I made for myself last week. I wanted to try out a load of new photoshop techniques I'd been trying to learn, this is what I ended up with. I wanted to make myself look cartoony and almost pop art Esq. I also added scratches and a photo frame to age it slightly, just an excuse to use the tools to be honest! I quite like it though, maybe I'll try changing the green to a different colour.
I've been added to the list of contributors as a cartoonist on the comic bible website along with Bernard in anticipation of the September issue we will be in. I used this picture to go along with my bio, although they seem to have sized it strangely.

Blinky returns after being born from a cereal box a couple weeks ago (See here if you missed it)
Today's comic is a very geeky computer joke, Blinky often has people writing to him for help... because he does know everything, he's a robot.
If you look closely you will notice the wacky science lab in the background, this will be Blinky's home.
I hope like!
