Recently had the joy of customising a kids storm trooper half mask for a instillation project at work (red central). I have seen lots of projects based on star wars helmets (vader project, project fett and the 501st legion) and was overwhelmed by the vast variety of customisations already out there so coming up with something different was a challenge. In the end i was inspired at home, I own a lot of tribal masks from around the world and felt this would be a good route. The entire build was an materials experiment from the get go, i used EVA foam, first time ever, mixed with hot glue and milliput this became a bit of a mission. I have listed the steps after the break.

Only The Mad Survive!

This is my tribute to the most balls out-mental-eyeball-assault of a movie i have seen in a long time! I was lucky enough to see this film in a private screening with my colleagues thank to the generosity of my employers. This tribute was conceived as part of Red Gallery, a showcase for the artist that work for Red Central (more projects to follow). I came up with this concept after seeing the first trailer which inspired me and since seeing the movie I feel this poster really captured the essence of the "War Boys"motor/viking inspired belief system that played throughout the movie.

It was fun project to work on.

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.
