The Madness of Don Quixote...

I saw a film with John Lithgow and Bob Hoskins about the story of Don Quixote de la Mancha. It's a really fascinating story and I thought I'd do a fun little character illustration of them wandering through the desert. It ended up being quite large so I've included a close-up of it too.

We have Post-Off! Space Mail Enroute...

I started out doing this piece for fun but it turned into something else and I think it'll look great on my envelopes... a more personal touch to sending out promotional material with my own stationary art. I really love all that whole post-war classic retro sci-fi aesthetic, it's so much more fun and optimistic, the innocence of the genre in a way. I plan to do futher illustrations like this and Return to Planet Bowie... ...that doesn't actually mean I'll be returning to planet Bowie... I'll shut up now.

Famous Vegetarians

This is an illustration I've been working on for a while now. Aiming to use it as a promotional postcard so I had to make sure all the little bits and bobs were to my liking.

Pug Dog

This is a little pug dog I did for fun this week. I realised I don't do many animal illustrations and should give it a bash to at least show some range. I will dedicate this illustration to my friend Vicki who has been searching for a little furry friend for months now.

Sexy Grrl

Again, continuing my love of old pulp 50's poster and art I've been having fun drawing sexy pin-up girls. I think there may be something to this theme, maybe even my own project worth getting published. Anyway, enjoy the frilly underwear and scantily clad ladies from now on...

Attack of the Swamp Monster!

I really love old 50's pulp film posters, especially horror and sci-fi posters like Invasion of the Bodysnatchers, Forbidden Planet and Creature from the Black Lagoon, which this is a tribute to.
