Season's Greetings!!

Heyloes! I trust you have/are enjoying the festivities. Me and the pixie have certainly had fun.

Lots of snow here, lots of ice... not very fun, but super pretty.

Here is bee looking all ice queen.

Rendered a lil bit more of this, but need to rescue a few lines.

Doodles, un ref'd and some sleeping commuter.

Back by populare demand, the fishing hut

Red kite update!

Hello there one and all,

Annoyingly my time has been taken up with christmas shopping,

So i've basically been finishing up some old work, i need to get this done for the sake on my portfolio, here is some.

And i'll try and finish up those rooms.


aaahhhh CHRISTMAS.

Hey y'all

OH GOD OH GOD OH GOD, How is christmas coming so fast!? did someone mount christmas to a tinsel covered holly powered present filled freight train and not tell me!?

Anyway, i spent some time doodling on my joyous pinstripe filled commute.

Here are some finished pages, the others have important stuff to be added like argyle and sparkles.

Doing this in colour is like playing the sims, i'll have to make more interesting shaped rooms next time or i might as well have just played the sims.

Hello! very busy week, still mad at work, here is some stuff from evenings and doodles from the train.

This month's art ac, not too pleased with the stance, i would like to make him more lumbering and the banker thinner, anyway, it's a banker bot, standing blocking his vault.

Quick photo study.
Some on the train half awake thumbs.

A kind of hacker lair, low budget room, money spent on hardware.

Train doodles that are all over the place.

Hello! Design'y things!

Heyloes! Busy long week for me at work, luckily the weekend was free, so i was finally able to get on with things that can go in the portfolio with a lovely run of pixie supplied coffee.

So here's a base colour run of a more technical look at the red kite's jet pack.

Working out gasmask colar holes and variants.
Prof. Wasp's Lab sketch. Ruler tastic!

Tadi's flying castle tiny thumbs.
I want the design philosphy here to be vimana, but a bit less ready for war, an old home.

And a lil bit of filler, the otherside of the castle page are a few silhuettes of ideas and some bloke asleep on the train.

Thanks guys! hopefully get even more done this week.

Heyloes, small one, still recovering.

Heyloes! been mostly recovering from being ill this week and not really in a state to art after work.

Here is a quick enviro study.

Thumbs for the looming art ac, these are very quick and small.

Some heads, ref'ing loomis and other people, i think basically tho, i need to go back and draw from life.

I'm ill :(

Hello! i'm ill, or was, i'm feeling better.

Which is rubbish, i felt a bit bad on friday, woke up saturday feeling all over the place, so my weekend has been wiped out with sleeping it off and trying to get some vitamin C in me.

Thankyou to my pixie for coming over and supplying a surprise care package to keep me well :)

Feeling much better now though, so hopefully feel good this week.

Train sketches:

Did these on Saturday in between feeling rubbish.

It's getting cold and foggy again!

Marrow! it's getting all cold and foggy again here in southern england,

How are you all? Have you also been wrapping up warm for early morning train platform fun, while balancing how many layers you can survive on without overheating on the tube to charing cross? maybe just me...

Sketchbook pages aren't finished, and obviously i can't show you stuff from work, so here are some weekend doodles.

Busy at work, i bring doodles and stuff

hello! Busy week at work, what with up at half six home at half eight, but i bring some doodles from the train and some enviro sketches i slotted in this afternoon.

Also went to the eurogamer expo on friday with mazlan, went to their careers fair bit and got some cool feedback about concept art from the artists there, basically none of them said the same thing, so you really need to tailor your work to the company you want to work for. This was both good and bad, but really very useful, anyway enough chit chat, art:

Best of the speed train sketches, i'd say 5 mins of woman texting.

Empty train brain arfs.

New job, long hours, very busy getting to know what i'm needed for. So sorry this is a lame update.

Went to the national portrait gallery one lunch break and again realised how much there is to learn about economy from sargent.

Doodles of business men on the train home will have to do till i can get back to life drawing.

Next week some foreground and general enviro studies, still not happy with that stuff, i know it can be a lot better.

Sorry i'm late!

I've been busy at work, I'm working in London for a while in film.

Here's some stooof.

Very Much Work in Progress.

Life drawing, long pose that didn't really feel worth moving past this.

5 min poses, biro.

more biro.

Sketchbook markers for interiors

And the sketchbook pages for the carnivale art-ac.

Hopefully get some more finished, those enviros have disappeared into my hard drive, they've got all shy and un resolved :)

It's been getting colder! malverns and work.

So after a weekend in the malverns and a super busy week of work i don't have as much as i'd like to show.

I will get those enviros finished :)

Been walking in the ribble valley, here's some stoof

Hallo, been through some very inspiring wilderness this weekend, will probably do some wilderness inspired enviros next week. Though I'll be pretty busy with work.

Here's some stuff from this week:


Life drawing warm ups.

My scanner has killed this, it's a lot more subtle a study in real life. Gouche and ink, hour.

Enviro of the week over at

This month's art actuate, find the blog through my profile, great work to check out.

More sketchbook pages i haven't scanned will come next week, along with finishing up those enviros and red kite.
