Scott motorcycle commission...


Another recent commission, I thought I'd display the line art work as well as the finished full colour piece.

Snowman...

It's getting colder.  Too cold, for me!
I wonder if we'll get the chance to build any of these this winter...

40th...


A caricature created for a birthday card and they even made cup cakes too. They look good enough to... well, eat!

Chaplin...

This was from a caricature for the Caricature Showdown 3000! on Facebook. The caricature wasn't working because the photo I was working from was too dark, so, I thought I'd try it as a black & white image instead, I think it works because Charlie Chaplin's 'tramp' is such an iconic and recognisable figure.

James Earl Jones...

Actor James Earl Jones, there's a hint of a shadow of Darth Vader (to mark my favorite piece of film voice-over work). This was drawn as part of the Caricaturama Showdown 3000! competition. It came out not bad so I thought I'd include it here.

Brad...

I'm perhaps a little late with this but well done Bradley.
Drawn on the iPad, I thought it was worth posting here to mark Bradley's achievements in the Tour De France and the Olympics.

Summer...Finally...

Just to mark the hottest week of the year so far. It's a 'make-up-your-own-joke' illustration.

Floods...

Typically, for a British Summer, it's raining...quite a lot...non stop. Now everywhere is flooding. The kids are enjoying it, in their wellies upto their knees.

Samples...


Hastily put together samples of my work, these images were produced as samples for a local business web site... Unfortunately, they didn't want to proceed...so I thought I'd post them here.

iPad Caricatures...




These are caricatures drawn over the past few days on the iPad. It's so easy to use and hard to put it down. Well worth the money.

Logo...

This started life as a new 'Logo' for me to use on my Facebook Page, but the likeness wasn't very good so I ditched the idea... I spent a lot of time messing about with it, so I thought I'd include it here anyway.

Surf's Up...

With the weather as a bad as it is around here at the moment, I have been dreaming of hot and sunny days at the beach. This is an illustration I came up with while wishing I was somewhere hot. I thought this would make a good poster.

Usain Bolt...

The 2012 Olympics are getting closer, Usain Bolt is bound to be one to watch... Although his run may be over in the blink of an eye.

Summer Girl...

The weather has been unusually gorgeous for the time of year.
I rough sketched a few people while on my lunch break. This was one of those cartoon sketches I did of a young lady as she made the most of the warm weather. (Well, I say she made the most of it...I don't know that she made the most it...but she looked very summery!)
Also, in an unrelated comment, I want to say Happy 1st Year to my blog...I started it a year ago this month. Happy Birthday to me!

Jenson Button...

So, Jenson was in the news at the weekend, although if I'm honest, I didn't take much notice of why he was in the news... I should take more notice of what's going on all around but I do have a short atten....ooh! a squirrel...erm!...where was I?
Anyway, this was a drawing I did from a sketch I made when Jenson was on the news last weekend. If anyone knows why he was in the news, perhaps you could post me a comment...

Happy Gilmore...

I like Adam Sandler films, although... there is one that I couldn't get on with... but I can't remember what it's called...
Happy Gilmore has the same approach to golf that I have, except that when I (eventually) hit the ball, It tends to spin and slice to the extreme right of where I'm standing. My golf technique has more in common with throwing a boomerang!

Flame Portrait...

After 16 separate layers in Photoshop, I began to get bored. It's not a caricature or a cartoon but I thought it was worth adding to the blog... If you look hard enough, you can see a face in there...somewhere!

Happy Birthday...

I'm a cheepskate, so I made a card for the wife's birthday. You never look at this blog but Happy Birthday anyway...you old bag! X (I'm sure she doesn't look at this site)

Mock the week...

Great telly...I did rough sketches while watching Mock The Week the other night, then finished these off on the computer. I plan to do a few more soon.

The Jam...

My favourite band. Can't believe it's been 30 years, this year, since they split up...how old do I feel now!!

Robbie Williams...

I don't really have much of an opinion about Robbie one way or the other, although, I think there's a fine line between confidence and arrogance...that's all I'm saying. Oh, and, I think Take That should've carried on without him.
Anyway, I wanted to draw something to mark the passing of 3000 hits to this blog (a couple of weeks ago) and Robbie was quite easy to draw.
