Creep


Man, this is the worst thing I've drawn for ages. I don't even know what happened. It started off okay, but after the inks it just went to pot.
Anyway, this image is from a dream I had last night, in which I was alone in my nan's house and this weird figure was tapping at the windows asking me to let him in. There was a note on the table that read, "Don't let him in!" surrounded by loads of pencil shavings and crumpled notes. It was well strange. Which ever room I went in to, the figure would appear and start tapping on the windows. I don't know what the dream means, but it was horrible.

Sketching...


Here's a little sketch for something I'm working on. It's Hercules and the Hydra... Very rough mind you. I was only supposed to be working on Hercules for the moment, trying to get him to look right. However, I was happy with this hero so I thought I'd sketch in a background and a naff looking Hydra. I'm not even sure what I've just typed. I am tired.

Spaced out...


Hey there, here's something new.

I was talking with James Loram a couple of days ago about editorial work, and I realised that I've only ever done about two mock editorials in the past four years! Which is dreadful.

So I thought I should probably have a go at a few. This one was for an article in New Scientist which was about a japanese space agency (Sounds cool already right?) that are planning to use a robotic grabber-claw from the international space station to clean derelict rocket and satelite debris that is circling the earth.

I'm not sure whether or not I'm into this image. I think it's the colour I've used for space, but I'm planning to redo the image using inks rather than just going for it in photoshop. Hopefully I can then put them side by side and see which metod yields the best results.
