Been playing around with the width tool in Adobe Illustrator. Why I’ve never used this before I don’t know. Took a bit of inspiration from Drew Millward. All drawn freehand.

'The Dark Knight Rises' A3 Poster

Trying my hand at more complex illustrations lately. Now that my teaching degree has finished (totally passed), I’ve been spending my free time trying out new techniques and this is the result. Still not sure on which colour scheme should be the ‘final’ version. Feedback on this is always welcome.

‘Moonrise Kingdom’ A3 3D poster
I’ve had this planned for a while. Now that I’ve finished my teaching degree, I finally found the time to actually make it. Digital print on 300gsm card and layered as it appears on the original. I did end up being covered in super glue though. Not a fan of that.

'They Mostly Come Out At Night…Mostly' 2013
A remake of my old tote bag design. This time around I wanted to actually mix an alien with a cat because, lets face it, cats mostly come out at night…mostly. All made in Adobe Illustrator CS6 with the blob brush tool. This was my first go at outlining in Illustrator, which I’ve always been a bit wary of but I think it came out rather well.

'Moonrise Kingdom' Poster
A little something I put together. Going for the minimalist approach.

Make Do And Mend - Recycling old t-shirts

Whilst this isn’t a post about my own art, it is creative in itself. With a little assistance from Mumfold, I have been turning old t-shirts that no longer fit me into cushion covers. This was one of my favourite t-shirts by one of my favourite artists, Brian Ewing (www.brianewing.com). As the years have been unkind in the weight department (I should have bought a medium instead of a small), I couldn’t find the heart to throw / give the t-shirt away. So what I have now is a piece of work by a great artist that can now live on my bed / sofa. And yes, that is Totoro in the background.

'The Cardinal' Tattoo
Remember my cardinal illustration I posted here back in May? Well, thanks to Alex Simpson at Bespoke Tattoo Company in Guildford, he’s now on my arm. He did a cracking job. I suggest you check him out.

F/ThirtyEight Tote Bags.
Black ink on canvas tote bags, spent the last few days making these. The down side of being in America for the best part of this year means that all my stuff is old. These are for the end of year exhibition by Commercial Photography students from the Arts Institute in Bournemouth.
