I'm an illustrator who utilizes both traditional and digital techniques incorporated in a range of styles. I've spent years trying to find my focus and be a success whilst always attempting to enjoy what I do.

I'm currently training to work in schools whilst aiming to produce artwork and illustrations for children and children's books.
Interests
Well! Whilst 2015 may have been an horrendous year for me personally, 2016 seemed to be a bad one on a more global scale. Somewhat anyway. Despite that though I found that I made some real progress in the year in almost every aspect outside of art, so I'm not complaining in the slightest. 

After years of being a useless bum I successfully held down two jobs at the same time, one of which was temporary but I still do on occasion to cover holidays and the other an actual factual permanent role. In retail of all things. And bizarrely I really enjoy it too. Also money. So with that stuff finally in place and the dust settling I can art it up without the annoying buzz of guilt and pressure! Always nice. 

Mad Monster Month took way too long to get completed, but I did get there in the end and I'm extremely optimistic that it'll be back on track this year. I've made some small changes to my life beyond work, getting rid of some unnecessary crap and so on..so it's all looking good.

Oh, and I also got a paid commission a few weeks ago which I completed. And was paid for. In real money. Monopoly money counts as legal tender right? 

So, to my friends and especially my Gaian friends, I wish you all a productive and subtly sexy new year. Let's art.

MMM 2016 - 031
MAD MONSTER MONTH – A project that has been running every October since 2010 with the aim of producing 31 pieces of art based loosely around the theme of ‘monters’. The exact details change every year but the basic ’31 images’ premise remains the same.

This year I'm going back to basics with a minimal theme and focus on improving quality and overall content. As you may also discover by checking the date on these pieces, I am running incredibly late this year. As I always promise though, I have delivered (eventually). Funny thing is that I actually had all the art drawn by the end of October, it just too me a while to get it coloured and uploaded. Hopefully 2017 is a better year for my art productivity, now that I've settled into my new job!

031 - Vengeful Inertia 
When the gods finally descended from their gilded thrones to fight against some of their own kin who had turned towards a path of evil there was much chaos and destruction. Ultimately the side of 'good' won the day, but there were many causalities. Three gods; Enc of the Earth, Iro of the Air and Spo of Water, were stripped of most of their powers and left as something more akin to an elemental creature. Their minds also suffered in the process, and they have become focused on regaining their lost power by any means necessary, working together in their plans..

030 - Little Red
Once there was a sweet little girl who helped defeat the menace of the Big Bad Wolf, only to fall prey to his younger brother as he sought revenge for his siblings death. Powerless to prevent the inevitable demise of one or more of those she cared about, she took desperate measures to bring an end to it all before anyone could die. Striking a deal with Wisn, a deity of the forest, she gained the powers of the wolf. In a sense. Her head grew in size, her mouth able to bite through anything and her nose capable of tracking just about anything. She sought out Skulk and tore him limb from limb before returning home just as her feral nature overtook her. She slew every last person in an hundred miles radius before coming to her senses enough to slip quietly away into the darkness of the woods where she would exist only as a big bad evil to be feared.

029 - Skulk
Younger brother of the fabled Big Bad Wolf, he sought revenge for his siblings death and set about tormenting Little Red's family and friends with a slow build up of sinister schemes that would have ultimately ended with every last one of them dying an horrendous death. Something changed though, and Skulk never quite got to see the final act of his vengeful plan.

028 - Solar Guardian
One of the elite warriors who live to protect and serve the sun god Heral. Gifted with unnatural physical strength, they were also granted a portion of Heral's own power which allows them to produce beams of destructive energy and blinding flashes of light. They're also really good at cooking.
