Indian Illustration

Found this in a Vintage shop the other day and I absolutely love it! (My partner's not such a fan) It now sits pride of place on the wall next to my desk. I still need to find out more about it but so far I know it's opaque watercolours and gold on cloth done in the traditional Indian folk tale style.


Finally graduated! Here's me and James who's looking kinda awkward! I think James has got some new bits up since I last posted his blog so here's a small plug for James http://jamesfenwickill.blogspot.co.uk/ :)

Die Antwoord

Been having some fun and decided I would do a Die Antwoord poster. I think they are pretty cool a quirky and should definitely give them a listen!!

I'm going away for a week, just down to the Isle of Wight, from this Saturday to the next Saturday. So if I don't reply to emails next week I do apologise and will get right on it the next :)

Humber Street Sesh - Live Painting

It was Humber Street Sesh this weekend just gone which was the first all day music event held and paid for by the people of Hull. It was an amazing day with street stalls, a silent disco, music from different hull bands all day, a pop up cinema, and best of all live painting!

Me, Gareth Sleightholme, Dominic Li, Chris Wood and James Fenwick did some live painting from 10am till 2.30pm. It was such good fun and lots of the public enjoyed stopping and watching us create.
It was the first day off together me and James had had in ages and we spent it painting side by side...certainly a different way for a couple to spend their spare time!

More artists took over in the afternoon till late on but it was getting a bit chaotic as the public got increasingly more drunk!

Roll on next year!

Soap Box Press

I've written an article for SoapBox Press which was quite fun! They asked me if I wanted to do one on what inspires me and the kind of things I've found through my Illustration. So if you want to check it out and read it, along with lots of other fantastic articles from other creative's go to there website http://soapboxpress.tumblr.com/

My article's named 'Dark Side' and has my Elvis Presley signing a ladies chest image underneath.

Untold Method

Untold Method is a bi-monthly on-line magazine, that features creative writing, artwork and an independent graphic novel called Philistone. I have recently done a piece for Untold Method's Philistone series as you can see above.
The synopsis of the graphic novel is: 

'Philistone is about Jack Titor who is a fuck-up.
He's heading towards middle-age, leaving nothing but a trail of missed opportunities, regrets and a life half lived. Until one day he see's a mysterious advert online, promising fresh new experiences, lifelong change and adventure.
When Jack replies to the ad he is fitted with a philistone implant. The implant begins to blur the lines between his inner world and the world outside. His dreams come to life on city streets, he meets gods in pubs and devils in back-alleys. Haunted by memories, beliefs and nightmares he is forced on a psychedelic journey through his own mind, that will strip away everything he is, never knowing if at the end of it he'll find madness or revelation.'

If you want to see the graphic novel which features lots of amazing art work from other illustrators check it out at http://philistone.untoldmethod.com/ Enjoy!

Another project I've been working on is the Apex Project that is run by Mike Tierney at the moment. The idea is for lots of different artists to come together and design a tattoo, which will then in the end be projected on to bodies as a live art piece. You can find out more at http://cargocollective.com/tierneytv/The-Apex-Project the deadline is the 31st of July so next Monday! Hope you like my design!

Goodnight Ohio

It feels like it's been an age since I last blogged! Yet time has flown by! I have been up to quite a lot, I went down to the D&ad at the end of last month (which I still need to blog about), I've been working at my bar job (which is starting to be the only place I get to communicate with the outside world now I've finished uni!) and then I've been cracking on with some illustration.

This piece here is a flyer/poster I've recently done for a gig at Fruit in Hull, the band liked the flyer so much they wanted to use the design for their band t-shirts! So I'm looking forwards to seeing the t-shirts printed up! The band is called Goodnight Ohio and you can find them on facebook - http://www.facebook.com/wearegoodnightohio

EastEnd-Nerd Part 2

So I was going to do a Phil Mitchell character but it turns out his bald head is hard to draw without making him look too much like Dr Evil! I may give it another bash another day but for now here is good old Dot Cotton instead :) Enjoy!

Thursday, 14 June 2012


EastEnders is kind of my guilty pleasure, I always enjoy taking that half hour break to watch it! Having just finished uni FOREVER (arghh!) I thought between a couple of projects I'm doing I'd have some fun drawing out some classic Enders characters. Next installant will be good old baddie Phill Mitchell....keep an eye out!

Fear and Loathing Follow up

Thought I would do a follow up on how the Cult Cinema Fear and Loathing night went! These photos where taken by  Thomas Arran-Photographer ( http://www.flickr.com/photos/thomasarran). It was a fantastic night with a great turn out and I sold quite a lot of my prints which is always a bonus! Prints of my poster and James Fenwick's poster are still available at http://www.cultcinemasunday.bigcartel.com/ if anyone's interested.

Music go Music Vinyl cover

Music go Music is one of my all time favourite bands, they sound like a fusion of 1970s ABBA meets electric space pop! They may not be to everyone's taste but being a big ABBA fan myself their sound is right up my street. They only have one album out at the minute called 'Expressions' and the cover for that it great but I felt I could bring a bit more 1970's groove to it. So here's my version of what a vinyl cover for them should look like. If you want to check out Music go Music for yourself they are on myspace: http://www.myspace.com/musicgomusic

Ripley's believe it or not 3rd piece

'The first artificial limb - An iron hand ordered by King Robert the Bruce of Scotland for a knight named De Clephanes more than 650 years ago - each finger could be moved by pressing a button.'

Last piece for my Ripley series.

Ripley's believe it or not!

 'Frenchwomen in the 17th Century created elaborate hairdos with scenes from literature, models of the city of Paris, windmills and waterfalls.'
'Edward Bovington of Burnham England, had three tongues.'

For my latest editorial work I decided to illustrate some facts from the 'Ripley's believe it' or not book. I'm always interested in the unusual and bizarre and this book is rich with great tales of extraordinary people and things so it was good fun looking through the book and deciding which quotes to illustrate, I still have one more I want to do so keep checking back!

Platform Expos 2012

Over the 17th and 18th me and a group of illustrators from Hull did live painting at Platform Expos an event that showcases digital gaming and the entertainment industry. For my characters I played around with creating a monster robot creature hybrid! The days where long but fun and now I have two great character designs I intend to use and develop for another project.... :)

UN Declaration of Human Rights Illustrations

The UN Declaration of Human Rights is something I've always known of but never read until this project. Initially I thought it would be a hard project to create images for but once I got my head around it and found things I could relate into the images it was quite fun! All the UN quotes are incorporated into the images fully apart from two; the heart in hands is; 

Article 3. Everyone has the right to life liberty and security of person. 

And the school child with the lunch box is;

Article 26. (1) Everyone has the right to education. Education shall be free, at least in the elementary and fundamental stages. Elementary education shall be compulsory. Technical and professional education shall be made generally available and higher education shall be equally accessible to all on the basis of merit.
(2) Education shall be directed to the full development of the human personality and to the strengthening of respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms. It shall promote understanding, tolerance and friendship among all nations, racial or religious groups, and shall further the activities of the United Nations for the maintenance of peace.
(3) Parents have a prior right to choose the kind of education that shall be given to their children.

Doll House!

So excited over this! Found a 1970s Caroline's Dolls house in a charity shop for a fiver! It's just the size I was looking for to restore! Can't wait to get going on it as a little on going project for myself, just waiting on some lights for it at the minute before I start.

One more quote illustrated

I decided to have a go at another Bruce Mau quote this one was 'Break it, Stretch it, Bend it, Crush it, Fold it'. I wanted to achieve the piece by representing the words at shapes, some of them work really well some of them could do with more tweaking but I really like the over all effect! I also used illustrator for some the shapes which was new to me.
