The book is on hold temporarily for a few weeks whilst I get Tinman and Beano duties done.
Its all mapped out now though and I can’t wait to get some more pages drawn by mid-April.
Yikes, the year is going so fast.
It was great to be asked this morning to contribute to Tinman Creative Studios weekly Tindraw. This week was a homage to Loony Tunes (I drew Porky Pig) X
Hello. I think this is alright to do this :) Basically, the illustration I did for Cambridge University publishing press a few weeks ago, well, this is the first draft incarnation of what it was going to look like. I don’t think its as good as how it eventually turned out, but I like it all the same. So, I thought I would post it.
Have a good week lovely ones. x
Anonymous asked: Hello! I was just wondering on your perspective as to whether you think prestige matters when choosing a uni? My top two choices are totally different, one's a friendly and relatively unheard of uni and the other is a well known Art's university.. I'm going to study Illustration this year and I know it's down to personal choice, but in the long run would you say the known university's can help you career-wise, or is it just down to hard work and making contacts? Thanks for any advice! x
No I don’t think it matters really. Its what you do with that time that counts.
As long as the uni has good facilities, lots of space to work and like minded people thats all you need. None of the jobs I have had in the past couple of years have asked for or even care which uni I went to. Its all about the portfolio you produce at the end of it.
Hope this helps :)
flaskofimagination asked: In what do you get inspired to get ideas for your illustrations and drawings?
Hello. Everything really. Films, music, books, art, illustration, walking, talking, nature, death, life, food, love, hate. Usual stuff
Tumblr. The interview I did for Computer Arts is now up on their site too. Go and have a gander (i’ll shut up about it now) x
Hello. For those who missed it, here is the interview I did for Computer Arts magazine February issue x
imaginationcreep asked: Love your artwork !
Thank you very much :)
ivi-green asked: How are you today? ;)
I’m excellent thank you. I’m working on some images for the Beano which is good fun. How are you?
Anonymous asked: can you think of an example of illustration or artwork that can be viewed or interpreted in more than one way?
I think it all can.Cant it?
The artist will interpret it one way whilst they are creating it and then the viewer will interpret it another.
That always happens to me. I draw something and know what its about and what it means for me and usually people interpret it completely differently.
Which I completely do not mind at all.
In fact sometimes I hate it when artists say too much about what their work is about. I like to interpret other peoples work for myself and make it meaningful to me. And I like it that people do that with my illustrations too.
I don’t think i’ve helped with your question to be honest. Sorry.
It is a great question though :)
