The Scarlett Murderess...

A fake cover - my homage those of the 1950s and 60s paperback crime novels. I'm a huge fan of that particular genre of illustration, especially the great Robert McGinnis.

30min sketches

A bunch of quick sketches done to loosen up and sometimes to get me out of a block.

Hey! hey! We're the Monkeys...

Some ape related art from a recent Drawing Board Jam. Most of these were done at the actual size that they are posted.

Left to right - Cornelius and Dr Zaius (from the original Planet of the Apes); Gorilla Grodd (a villain from the Flash comics); General Thade (from Tim Burton's Planet of the Apes re-imagining); Stephen Collins as Capt Jake Cutter (from 80s TV show Tales of the Gold Monkey); One of the "Dawn of Man" apes (from 2001: A Space Odyssey); and... er... Mickey Dolenz (from The Monkees)

It'd been years since I tried my hand at caricature, but I did some recently for Jams at the Drawing Board - I quite enjoyed doing them, and was pretty pleased with the results.

From left to right - Matt Damon; Uma Thurman; John Goodman; Hans Christian Anderson

Uma was the most difficult, as it's tricky to distort the features of a beautiful woman and still keep her attractive.

Famous faces

Some portraits done over the last few months.

Left to right: Audrey Tautou; Shakira; Michelle Rodriguez


Something from a few months back - based on a photo of Aria Giovanni. I did the original in the blue colours (don't know why - seemed like a good idea at the time) and then adjusted to see what a more natural skin tone would look like.

I prefer the original blue one.
