Some Things I've Been Working On

Yooooo, Been up to my eyes lately so im gonna post a couple of things of mine that are mine and not under NDA ( most of my drawing lately is owned by somebody else hence the lack of posts) sooooo here we go.

I was asked to do a new page of The Hip Hop Opotamus book I did for Brent Pope. Looks like he might be able to get Jedward to be involved so I did an extra page of the book featuring the Jedward Meerkats! I posted up the inks of this on twitter and a lot of people guessed who they were without any hints whatsoever so I suppose that's a job well done. That hair cut is just so iconic I guess you could give anyone a fringe like that and people would guess that they're Jedward.

This one is an ICN noodler  guest post. I was asked by the very cool and very talented Gary Reynolds (go here to check out his new character 'BLU i' on his blog) to do a spot again! I was very happy to.  It was around the time that Maurice Sendak past away. I'm a late comer the book and the work of Maurice Sendak but felt compelled to do a tribute all the same.

And this something I did yesterday. If you haven't read "I Kill Giants' by Joe Kelly and J. M. Ken Niimura, then you really need to. It's an awesome book and Barbara Thorson is a great character, I can't believe more people aren't talking about her and this book. She's such a likeable character and she has some of the best dialogue I've read in a long while.

Anyways I hope the 3 pics cover me for being slow to post so until next post, G'luck!

Tank Girl Birthday Card

Yooo, so long time no post.

Apologies, time at the drawing board outside of work has been tough to find. Buuuuuuuuut I did do this last week.

It's the culmination of a number of warm up sketches and about 2 hours of cleaning it up after work one day. I drew it for my Brothers missus Maria, she was sound enough to draw me one for my birthday back in December so I thought it would be cool to repay the favour.

First time I've ever drawn Tank Girl, I'm a big fan of Jamie Hewlett, so I'm pretty sure subconsciously I drew her in a way that's more reminiscent of his style than anyone else.

She's a lot of fun I'll def be drawing her more. She's pretty outrageous so you can do a lot of fun stuff, originally I was going to have her light her cigar off of her pants as they were still on fire/burning and upon reflection I'm raging I didn't do that. But pretty happy with it all the same.
