Messina Wildlife Characters

These last few weeks I have been lucky enough to be involved with Messina Wildlife Management, creating a variety of characters for their Pest Control company.

I am still working on the project, but thought I would post some of the latest designs, which include an Armadillo, snake and mouse.

New Style, sketch update...

New Year, New Style...

Hmmm... Well maybe that title is a little harsh when I say new style, but for the last few months I have contemplated having a separate style to the one I currently have which is a little more 'minimalis' shall we say.

It is not that I am getting bored with my current style (or that I am infact just being lazy), but I just wanted to experiment with the idea of creating characters which are made of simple shapes, very few colours and with no shading or depth to them.

I really love strong defined lines and solid blocks of colour in artwork and I suppose this development was inevitable.

In the coming months I am planning on creating a few illustrations to sell on iStock and see how they are received.

As soon as they are available I will let you all know.

Until then, I have enclosed a very early sketch of the style (though I do plan on simplifying it some more).

It certainly isn't a million miles away from the way I am working now, but I don't see this as replacing my current style at all. I just want to have another way of portraying my ideas and I think this could be the avenue to go down.

Speak soon!
