Happy Birthday Mel!

It was my friend Mel's birthday on Sunday. As well as going for burgers at Shake Shack, I made her this card based on a Facebook photo of her amidst a bunch of Minions from Despicable Me...

Happy Birthday Camilla!

It was my friend Camilla's birthday the other day and here's a drawing I did of her as Finn from Adventure Time...

House Party!

I was asked by the amazingly talented Rachael Smith to draw a pin-up to be included in her upcoming comic House Party (published by Great Beast Comics). Here's my image featuring some of the characters from Rachael's comic... (click to enlarge)

There'll be a Launch Party for the comic on 13 June at Orbital Comics from 7 – 9:30pm. Rachael will be there to sign and sketch in copies and to be generally lovely to everyone who comes and of course there’s free booze! Yayyy! See you there!

Super SMASH Bros! Easter egg decoration

While I was busy eating chocolate eggs on Easter Sunday, I noticed that Nintendo were running a competition on their Nintendo 3DS UK Facebook page to decorate a Nintendo-themed egg with the chance to win a Limited Edition Yoshi's Island 3DS XL. So I decided to give it a go and went off and bought half a dozen eggs and got painting!

I painted egg-shaped versions of Mega Man, Samus Aran from Metroid, The Villager from Animal Crossing and Link from The Legend of Zelda series, all of whom are playable characters in the upcoming Super Smash Bros game.

And as they were eggs, I decided that the "Smash" in Super Smash Bros should probably be literal! Poor Link...!

Happy Birthday Saul!

Today was my friend Saul's birthday. Saul really likes My Little Pony so I drew him as a pony. (Coincidentally, my friend Anna also drew a VERY similar card...).

Happy Birthday Shirlene!

It was my friend Shirlene's birthday the other day, and here's a card I made for her, based on an illustration she produced for the Redheads Matchbox contest...

Sketches from my sketchbook

I've been trying to do more sketching while I'm out recently, and carrying a small sketchbook around with me in my pocket. Here are a couple of sketches I drew on the train, as well as a few from The Chorus Festival Weekend at the Southbank Centre today...
