Now I have a machine gun. Ho. Ho. Ho.

I was recently commissioned by Last Exit To Nowhere to produce a series of Christmas cards for them, featuring a child emulating sequences form one of the all time greatest Christmas movies, Die Hard!

Here's a  preview of a couple of the images.

Head over to Last Exit To Nowhere now to buy a set, and why not treat yourself to one of their awesome shirts as well.

In fact, you should buy me one as well!

Much obliged.

You are not a Jedi, yet.

Well whilst we're all excited about the poster, trailer and film, we shouldn't forget that series two of the excellent, Star Wars: Rebels show kicked off last week so now is a good a time as any to drop the recent pic of Ezra into the frenzy.

I don't know how tightly they're going to tie any of the animated characters into the cinematic mythology, if at all, but it would be a shame if some of them didn't surface somewhere along the line, be it in the Anthology films or the new trilogy.

Regardless, tickets booked. Roll on December.

A Miniature Epic

Well its been a while since my last post. Apologies. A summer break turned into autumn and suddenly winter is approaching. Aaaanyhoo...

Here's some images from an idea I've been playing with for a while now about alone wandered known only as Meek.

'Meek was a gifted slayer. He slayed like whirling twirlers danced. It was beautiful. He would tempt rotters until they were almost upon him. Then he would run. All day and into the night.'

'And once he was out of sight, he would stop running. And he would wait. The rotters would catch up eventually. They always did. And he would wait until he could smell their thick scent.'

'And then he lept.'

'And when the night of fighting was done and the shrieks had washed away on the wind, Meek would sit on the tip top of a blue bongo tree and stroke the stings of his blute to the fairlings singing in the sun, high above., and all was right again.'

Its a departure in style from my usual work, a mix of photography and photoshoppery.

Right... Back to the sketchbook.

New Horizons

Mankind's exploration of our solar system has taken another great leap as, after almost a decade, NASA's New Horizons mission has made it to the Pluto system and begun sending pictures. 

Congratulations you brilliant, brilliant people, you!

So, what's next?

Shadow Of the Giant

Chewie his up there with Fett as my favourite Star Wars character so I was hugely excited to see him return for the trailer for The Force Awakens.

I really hope we get to see him tearing up the place and going 'full Wookiee' on some hapless troopers.

In the words of the Mighty Chewbacca himself, 'Wrraaaaaaghhhhhl'.

Rosetta: One Little Comet

Well in a surprising follow up to Novembers Rosetta image, Philae is alive! Today ESA announced that Philae had made contact for little over a minute but are hopeful it will continue to communicate.

Goooo science!

A follow on from my recent Human Child post that shows something further down the line.

Question though, does the text work? I mean, the robot dialogue is supposed to be tricky to read, but does it detract from the image? I've yet to make up my mind.

Human Child

Spent some time in Northumbria recently, clambering around on Hadrien's wall and other Roman ruins. The forests in that part of the world were thick with damp moss and dew, and had a real unearthly feel to them, so it was only a matter of time before my pictures reflected the inspiration they provided.

As per usual, I have a whole mythology planned out for these little guys (it takes time to produce these pictures and that whole time my imagination is going at 103mph), and it'll probably rattle around in my head for a while before I find an outlet.

At least it wont be lonely.

May the 4th: Rogue One

I have no right to be excited about Rogue One. But I am. Very.

A huge fan of Gareth Edwards' work and I've always hoped to see Star Wars with a bit more of an edge and a slightly darker tone. At this stage this looks to be that.

May the 4th be with you.

Mr. Fox

I've just started reading Fantastic Mr. Fox to my son. I was a huge fan of Dahl's work as a child, with Danny the Champion of the World and the BFG being personal favourites, and I'm hoping to pass on this appreciation to my kids.

Such is the imagery created I immediately came to my study and produced this.

Once I finished I realised it was disappointingly close to the cover. Unintentional plagiarism irks me, but I guess that's the power of a good book, elements of it stay with you for life. This is the same copy I've owned since I was 7.
