Charity Auction Pet Portrait

Recently I submitted a pet portrait into a charity auction for a local child needing chemotherapy. It reached £85!! I hope the gentleman who bid is pleased with result. Yes his cat is that fat, poor thing, got hit by a car so has a damaged tummy and only half a tail! The parrot was awesome, he said "hello" to me when he saw me... freaky!!! Anyways, done in time for christmas, hooray, and looks like I've got another 3 or 4 pet portrait commissions from people who bid but didn't win... my graphic novel is gonna have to wait just a leeetle while... good job it's coming along so well!

These next two images are the portraits I did for my boss's Dad, a couple of weeks ago. They were the examples I put into the auction.

Little Red Riding Hood got evil....

Concept Hare

He can dress up all he likes, he ain't no deer.
For current commission.

The Pussycat's Owl

This is a quick photoshoppage of an owl image used in the graphic novel I'm working on with Neil. He is much smaller on the page, but I liked the image enough to do a quick something else with him, stand him alone, he deserves it :) The little image on it is my new imagestamp. Will be on all my stuff from now on. To show it's MINE!! ;)

Random 50 words pt.1

My friend Carl and I have started a game where we write 50 random words for each other to illustrate in 7-10 comic strip boxes. Here is the first... of hopefully many to come! It's very quickly done as we're both really very busy at the moment, but it's so nice and refreshing amidst my other work... I normally put a lot of time into every picture so it's nice to relax my style a bit! Plus I'd never drawn a sperm whale for anything before... or plankton for that matter! Don't even know what they look like but I don't think it matters.... !!! Click on the pic to view it larger.

If you would like to join in, please let me know... send me 50 words, I'll send ya some back :D -x-
