Alphabits: The Letter 'L'

Julian James of BOYS WHO DRAW is putting together a very jolly project featuring 26 illustrators. It's called 'Alphabits' and it's going to be the best collaborative, alphabet poster you ever clapped your eyes on! Raising money for the 'Children In Need' charity, all our efforts can be seen on a website (coming soon!) and available to purchase, in the form of the poster.

I was given the letter 'L' and loony kids laughing in long johns emerged sometime later.
tee hee

Ellie Cryer is Oh Gosh Sorry!

Bristol-based illustrator Ellie Cryer has started a blog with lots of things that make her go "Oh Gosh Sorry"!!








There is plenty to inspire and get all excited about. I recommend having a look and definitely clicking the "Follow" button to keep up to speed with her quick thinking wit and charm. She's also stonkin' good at drawing too...

Queensbury Hotel & Olive Tree Restaurant Images

The Queensbury Hotel & Olive Tree Restaurant have just had a brand new design face-lift and I was given the intricate job of carefully rendering and adapting two archive illustrations. The first is two women having a bit of a fight. And the second is a cheerful Victorian gent with a boxing glove to hand!

Have a nosey on their website to view the drawings in context. See if you can spot the cheeky animation of the boxing gent.

It's The Christmas Production Line!

I was set a mini-challange to create an illustration for a possible Christmas market and was given little themes to include in the artwork. It's a bit of an experiment and slightly different from my other drawings, but I had fun doing it and I think I may do some more images like this perhaps.
