It’s a Process

The weather has turned in the UK so I figured a character in the cold was warranted. This guy and his sheep/ram buddy were fun to design and took probably about four hours to illustrate altogether. I took a lot of inspiration from Siberian, Mongolian, and Icelandic cultures, but isn’t specifically any of them, insteadContinue reading “It’s a Process”

A couple new additions

These are two pieces are commissions I recently completed. The top one of Grasmere was a bastard to make because of the sheer number of trees. A truly horrendous experience, but I didn’t make it easy for myself to be honest. I didn’t want the image to just be a mass trees the same colour,Continue reading “A couple new additions”

This feels like the first true bit of children’s book illustration I’ve done for ages! The inspiration for this one came from watching “Gone Fishing: with Bob Mortimer and Paul Whitehouse”. If you’ve not watched it then do! It’s a really relaxing and funny show, and was not at all a program I thought IContinue reading “Gone Fishing”
