Never Judge A Lady By Her Lover

This is just a little teaser for you of what I am working on now. I'm growing to like each of them in their own way.

This woman, for example, seems like the kind of person I could get along with. She seems spunky. I have this entire soap opera planned out in my head and she is definitely one of the leads. There's also a stud, the rich bitch, the tranny and of course the obligatory drug addict. And some blatant prostitution along the way. It's gonna rock so completely majorly.

Who's Zoomin' Who?

Some amazingly talented and clever illustrators at Bath Spa are throwing some stuff up on the walls in the AV Studio in Bath. It's gonna be blingin'.....

Nice Is Different Than Good

James and the Giant Peach is a book that I never want to read again. Ever. So much so that I'd rather be forced to watch a medley of anything Lady Gaga has ever done - seriously I just watched the video for "Born This Way", and I'm still trying to control my hands from not gouging out my own eyes. I'm literally scarred. Will that woman ever just shut the fuck up.

There are so many things about this that I just feel like changing. But every time I go to, I come back to this same conclusion. Ergo: it's finished.

With You I'm Born Again

Decisions, decisions. I think I may need professional help. I'm torn. Like when Leona speaks and I think "Meh, I only like you" and then she sings and I shout "hells yes woman, I love you".

Moral of the story. Speak less. Sing more. (and I love Leona).

I Saw What I Saw

As I haven't put anything up here in a while, and with the pangs of guilt laying heavily on my shoulders, I am giving this to you as a preview of a new series I am working on for an exhibition us illustration students are having in a few weeks time. I'm basing it around the idea of androgyny, with LOVE and SEX being my words of the week. Enjoy

I'm definitely happy with the abstract patterns and shapes that are going on here. However I'm really not convinced by the pencil work that I'm doing. I really haven't gone as far as I want to with these - more sex and love for sure. I will explore. And get back to you. Til Then...

Time After Time

I had previously done lino-prints for this Silhouette based project of mine, back when Gossip Girl was good and I was thinner, but I decided to go back and do them with more detail.

These were done with a stencil of the figure over the lino block with each "organic' on. Below is the reverse of each of the above, although not as successful I feel.

Still, I find them pleasing. Like when Hugh Jackman takes his shirt off in any movie.

Something To Talk About

In the immortal words of one Miss Tyra Banks:
