Big Hero Six Tribute

This was just a quick piece i was inspired to make after seeing Disney's Big Hero Six. I loved the characters and the story, I felt the relationships were well fleshed out along with the loveable Baymax. I watched it with my son who absolutely loved this film, and so was compelled to create.

Coming Soon

here is a little sneaky peak of an upcoming print. Stay tuned for more details.

The Alarm Tour Back Drop

This was an added extra for The Alarm, Mike asked if i would create a unique back drop for their strength tour 2015, mike gave me the direction and i illustrated it in my usual minimal style : )

This has turned into one of my favourite pieces.

My preferred colourway

Summer of the Seventeenth Doll Theatrical Poster

This is the last poster i will produce for Core Theatre Productions. On a personal note this isn't my finest, but certainly the hardest i have had to work on. The final images the directors request, the earlier images (see below) were the initial direction until i figured that you cannot make Kewpie Dolls not look creepy! the show is about broken relationships and how the party ends eventually, but the direction i went is more down the serial killer/horror route (obviously wrong).

Everyone was happy with the final image, but i wished i did something better (hindsight is a powerful thing).

My personal preferenc

Oh dear god no!

may have been under the influence?

SL\VA Logo

My lovely girlfriend has made the brave step to strike out on her own and start her own business. She is setting up as a virtual assistant, to help out for any PA work. As a supportive partner i developed her logo (see below).

The Alarm: Strength Album Cover

This is the second album cover i have been commissioned to illustrate for the band The Alarm. This cover is the 30th anniversary version of the album. I wanted to give a nod to the original with the clasped hands but added the tattoos as an added bit of story telling.

It is great working with Mike on these covers, he encourages creativity and is positive about everything we create, its refreshing.

The Album Cover

These are the tattoos designed for each song tittle.

Monsters 2_Dark Continent

This is a little fan piece, wanted to take a crack at making a poster for the upcoming film event, so here it is.

Lisa Hounsome Photography Mailer

This was a small job i recently completed for Lisa Hounsome Photography. Lisa needed a nice way to send photo CD's to clients, so we sourced natural board cd mailers and i designed a full wrap around label, this is the finished result.

Shaun in the City Concepts

As some may know, Aardman and The Wallace & Gromit Grand appeal had a call out to all artist for another sculpture trail in 2015 in London & Bristol. So after the success of 'Gromit Unleashed' i thought i would throw my hat in the ring for another chance to work on another gist claymation character for charity.

Sadly it was not to be, none of my designs or the designs of my colleagues made it through to be used. And so i will give you a look at my small contribution.

As we all know Aardman love puns, and so they were put to good use in my designs.

This was a salute to 2015 chinese year of the sheep, and i thought these would look awesome in miniature on display in the cribs causeway store, a whole terracotta army of Shaun's.

They were fun to design, a pity they didn't make the flock.
