More rough's for the green dragon calendar. They are showing them to the commitee tommorow and they'll decide whether they want to use them. I think they're more likley to go for the cartoony ones. Apparently the others are too subtle!

....The Wide-Boy sofa, and the Stoner/hippy fireplace. I particularly like the boy racer sofa with his bonnet/cushion stripes and neon under-lighting. So there are a few more characters I've yet to draw and I'm unsure wether to reveal the plot of the movie as some scumbag might steal it, but rest assured its one of the craziest and most controversial plot lines a film with talking furniture could possibly have. Watch this space for updates!
Various characters for a film idea I'm developing with my mate Olly... The idea came about after watching the new superman movie at the cinema. We went for a drink after and were talking about how incredibly lame it was. At some point we said, "We could make a better film than that!" which quickly turned into spouting crazy ludicrous ideas. We were sat on some sofa's and noticed there was a face in the creases of the sofa opposite us. This sparked the idea of furniture coming to life. Anyway over a couple of pints we came up with various characters that could populate this film. The Gothic non-conformist chair with clawed feet and painted toe-nails, the ironing board who dreams of becoming a surf board, the grandma reclining armchair and the grandad pouffe, the foul mouthed toilet.......

Been studying Gustave Dore recently... bought Dante's Divine Comedy which has hundreds of illustrations by Dore. In the absence of a life drawing class this is the next best thing.

More random characeters, another demon cat not as cool as the other but I like it's tail. A fly, a rasta ant? A crazy plant pod thing, and the evil kiddies death and lucifer both dressed in onesies(how cute is the bow-tie?)
Random character sheet, I love the sensai guy cos you know he's about to go sick on that flying robot thing! Very creepy devil cat, octopus with two tentacles (looks like he lost the others in a knife fight down the pub). strange pink thing, and slimy slug-rhino ma bobby.

I've been asked by my uncle to do some cartoons for a calendar. It's for the Green Dragon bus service that runs around Wales. Basically it's a bus that will pick people up from their house.

Various character designs for idea's I'm working on. The god character is going to be for the first mini episode of a flash series i'm planning, the elephant is from a random thing in my sketch book. The kid the brain and the orange jump suit guy are part of a series i'm developing. More stuff on these to come.

My mum wrote children's book many years ago, I remember reading it when I was a kid and really enjoying it so I decided to do a cover.. Hopefully she will send it off to publishers and I will illustrate it. Or maybe I'll make it into my first feature film!
I've got an idea for a cartoon/comic that needs a little kid character so I started doing some character sketches... Some of these poses were lifted from a ren and stimpy cartoon, some are from preston blair/tex avery some are from me.

Decided to practice drawing sexy ladies today, started off copying some john k type stuff then drew some from life. These are all from life. (well... pictures) except the one with the sexy booty, that was copied from Stefanie Achtnig. http://grillhouse.blogspot.com/ and the chained up girl is from a gustave dore painting.
Been drawing faces the past few days, some are from life some are from my head and some are copied from other artists.... mostly the girls faces are copied as i'm crap at drawing women.
