Book Cover: 'The House'




Just sayin', the boy is in a blue blanket. Looking at it now I see it as a fat blue man, or a bobble hat, or maybe a bell.
So just to clarify, its definitely a person. And he's Agoraphobic... hence the cage-like shadows. Deeeep.

Managed to survive deadline day with half an hour to spare, which I spent being a zombified, sniffely mess in the studio. Loving the winter illnesses!

Onwards with the animationing!

Stocking up on hair spray, face wipes and furniture polish, cus I'm crackin' out the big, grimy, charcoal stop motion. Again!

Although thought I should mention, I don't have some weird sick fascination with concentration camps. It's a little request for 'Norman 68616', a WWII documentary film.

THE DUST.  IT IS EVERYWHERRRRRE.

...oh GOD it's almost September.

So much for using my time off productively!


I just paid the blogs a visit and it's juts made me feel so... lazy!
However, between my TWO JOBS (hahaa, excellent excuse) I am filling my time with some lovely little projects... none of which have materialised here.

Coming soon:

Paintings of Falmouth and Weston. Not that anyone wants to see a painting of Weston.

Another album cover for my friend, who is somehow writing beautiful music and gigging around while working his soul-destroying McJob.

And finally, in time, a charcoal animation for Norman 68616 by Hope and Rage Films.

If you're a history geek, and don't mind hearing some truly GRIMMMM accounts of WWII from an incredibly brave survivor of a concentration camp, give it a google.

Wish me luck. ;)

Toby Janes' EP Cover



My first go at some album art! The little gouache painting was specifically requested by Mr Janes himself. Not my usual thing, but turned out alright (must look into typography though).
Make sure you check out his music >>

Illustrations for 'Perfume' by Patrick Suskind

"...he only caught her from behind in silhouette against the candlelight."


 - part one

 

"Moonlight knew no colours, and traced the contours of the land only very softly."
- part two



"...he saw Laure lying on her bed, naked and dead and shorn clean and sparkling white."
- part three




" ...and then he had sprinkled himself all over with the contents of the bottle,
and all at once he had been bathed in beauty like a blazing fire."

- part four

Colonel Fazackerley Butterworth-Toast


 Thought I might as well put up my Illustrated Book Project.

(Or at least, the ones I got around to colouring in...)

A study of a douchebag.




This is a girl I know,
she is having a good, long think about things.
DEEP.

I love you really ;)

Goatface


An elaborate doodle from a sketchbook. This one looks a bit like a goat, and for some reason, emits a bit of light.

The pretentiously named, 'Untitled'.




Thought this would fit in nicely with this blog.
Finished June 2010
