The Line It Is Drawn: Week 378

This week's The Line It Is Drawn was a fun one: mash-up a comic book character with a famous album cover! Here's Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Jessica Jones and Daredevil in a homage to the cover of the Gorillaz album Demon Days...

Word On The Street #2

Word On The Street is a weekly column in Time Out where readers Tweet the most ridiculous things they've overheard in London during the week (#wordonthestreet @timeoutlondon) and the best ones get printed in the magazine.

For a long time now, I've been meaning to pick one quote each week to illustrate as a semi-regular personal project, and like a lot of the ideas in my head, I haven't got around to putting pen to paper...until now!

This week's Word On The Street:

'This beer has gone straight to my eyebrows.'

This week's Line It Is Drawn theme, with the release of the latest Marvel Studios film: Black Panther, was to team-up Black Panther with another comic book character. I chose werehawk1's suggestion for Lockjaw chasing Black Panther...

Word On The Street #1

Word On The Street is a weekly column in Time Out where readers Tweet the most ridiculous things they've overheard in London during the week (#wordonthestreet @timeoutlondon) and the best ones get printed in the magazine.

For a long time now, I've been meaning to pick one quote each week to illustrate as a semi-regular personal project, and putting together some illustration samples that I could submit to Time Out in the hope of getting some work from them. And like a lot of the ideas in my head, I haven't got around to putting pen to paper...until now!

This week's Word On The Street:

'I've eaten peacock. It's just a chicken that wears Dolce & Gabana.'

The Line It Is Drawn: Week 376

With the Super Bowl happening this weekend (apparently!) and quite a big deal being made about what adverts will be shown during half-time, this week's Line It Is Drawn theme was to suggest a superhero and a product and come up with an ad for that product starring that superhero: Superhero Superbowl ads.

I went with dansjostrom's suggestion for The Vision doing an ad for Specsavers:

Happy Birthdays!

My Brother and my future Sister-In-Law have their birthdays just a few days apart. Here's a couple of cards I made for them both:

My Brother has quite a few Funko Pop toys, so I drew this card with him as a Funko toy. By a strange coincidence, his fiancée bought him a custom Funko toy that she got made to look like him. I had no idea!


My brother's fiancée is a big fan of Disney, so I drew her this card featuring Stitch from Lilo and Stitch...

Commissioned work: Leaving Drawings

I was contacted a few weeks ago about a possible illustration job. It's only in the early planning stages and won't be ready to work on until later this month, so I haven't started anything yet, but it's nice to have some work lined up.

But then a few days later I got an email from them asking if I would be able to draw a couple of cartoons of some staff that were leaving, that they could get printed and give to them as leaving presents. They sent me photo references and gave me a brief summary of what they wanted, and away I went. This was a fun commission and they were really pleased with the drawings I sent, which is a good feeling. I hope that the people leaving were happy to get them too.
