Eye of Thundera

It's funny that lately I have noticed some of the ridiculous things I do when I am at home by myself. I haven't thought too much about them until I mentioned a few of the things I have done casually to one of my best friends on a morning commute to work.

He seemed to find them hilarious, if not a little odd, and so I thought I would put them into strips and upload them on here.

The strip above is just a typical morning for me while I am waiting for my toast to cook. I often relive my childhood and impersonate Thundercats whilst holding a butter knife waiting for my toast to pop up. I must admit I thought surely other people must do this too, but not according to my friend.

Any way, I also want to take this opportunity to wish you all a Merry Christmas a Happy New Year.

Have a good one!

New Sketches

I've been working on a couple of sketches lately and thought I would post them on here before I forget.

They will be available on iStock within the next few weeks to purchase.

The first sketch is of some little children about to embark on some cooking and the next is for the December iStock vector competition.

Each month, iStock has a different themed competition that you can enter and win some brilliant prizes. This months theme is 'Luxury' and my cartoon is based on the notion of someone living the life of luxury in his swimming pool filled with money.

Working from home... :)

This week I have had the pleasure of taking a weeks vacation from the hurly burly world of freelancing in London and managed to bag myself a week of working from home.

I was lucky enough to get approached about working on two illustrational projects and so decided to snap them up and leave the London rat race behind for a week.

The first project was for an award winning printer called Digital Studio. I have created their mascot and also a series of other illustrations, including staff members etc.

I have included one of the pics of their mascot above.

The next project is going to prove to be a bit longer then first expected, as the number of illustrations required has grown from the initial brief.

The current number stands at 32 different illustrations and hopefully it shouldn't rise any more as the timelines are pretty tight for this project.

The brief for this one involves me creating eight families each from different social backgrounds. The project is still in its very early stages, but here are some of the sketches.
