As a freelance illustrator this blog is where I quarantine my latest creations long enough to deem them safe to move on to my website.
If you think I can help with your project, want to offer words of encouragement or simply say hi, feel free to get in touch.

My main concern with these images is just how far to go with the grime and grot so as to enhance the concept yet not make the image unpleasant to look at.
After studying a couple of books of old posters, some of the text they used is now so dated that i could I afford to have a lot of fun coming up with slogans and quotes to put on my own, without them (initially at least) appearing to be amusing.

I regularly devise expansive and elaborate stories that rarely escape my mind, so in an attempt to combat this i try and illustrate key moments from them. This is the beginning of one of these tales where in a time of swords and stone the descendant of a great warrior witnesses something magical and finds himself somehow connected to it.
Touching on the perceived power that religion commands and delivers, there's a good chance I'll knock out some more moments from this story as it touches on a number of themes that have fascinated me for years. Or i might drop it as i cook up something else that saps all my attention.
