Another Christmas Commission

I think I can get away with posting this a day early as I'm pretty sure the recipient won't see it on here. My client says she loves it but thinks her friend looks very sad. I think she looks intense (and maybe a little bit sad!)

A friend's Gran in Casablanca!


A friend asked me if I could paint his Gran for a Christmas present and mentioned she really likes the film Casablanca so I suggested a scene where she fills the shoes of Ingrid Bergman toasting Humphrey Bogart whilst Sam serenades them both! (I did intend to include a background of the restaurant/bar in the film complete with waiters in fez and exotic plants but that ol' demon called Time got the better of me!)

New Year's Eve Illustration

I was honoured to be asked by the legend that is 'Stick It On' to provide the illustration for their New Year's Eve promotional material. They're doing a 'world record attempt' for the most dj's in one night where anyone can apply to dj. We went with idea of depicting Roy Castle and Norris McWhirter from British children's TV show Record Breakers with the organiser of the night and, centre stage, the generic star of the show - you?

President Obama

A quick sketch I did a while ago but, seeing as he's here at the moment, I thought i'd post this.

Bob Dylan

Here's something I did for a Bob Dylan tribute band - 'My Back Pages'. I'd been thinking of doing something referencing the 'cue card' image from Subterranean Homesick Blues for a while and the band name seemed to fit well (even though its the title of a totally different Dylan track!)

Tim Burton - WIP

Here's a 'work - in - progress' of Tim Burton. This has been sitting on my desktop for a while so thought I'd post it to (hopefully) spur me on to finish it! I want to bulk him out a little bit to get more of a likeness and maybe shape the glasses  to get more of a comedy effect.

Blue Eyed Sun

Here's something I was commissioned to do by my boss for my work's Christmas present (and to celebrate the greeting card company's 10th birthday) - everyone got a framed copy.  Belated 'Happy New Year' to everyone!
