The End is Nigh





these are my final images for last terms project, based it on the mayan 2012 conspiracy. I invented an alternate world where the Mayans had invaded europe instead of the other way around, and then went on to create posters for a fictional travel company, with the final poster being about the evacuation of the earth before it ends.

This was a pretty challenging project for me because i tried to imitate the styles and production of the time period each poster is from, I think I did it the best I could.

If i get round to it I'll type up the timeline I did for this so people can get a better idea of what its all about.

Christmas Challenge

I thought it would be a good idea to try and do an image a day up until christmas, I will post them up on this blog as a kind of illustration advent calendar. Although this is a pretty ambitious challenge for me so they may be late some days or I might miss a few, I will try my hardest though and there will be 25 images by the end.

Todays will follow shortly.

Anubis Design


Something I've been working on for a few days, based on the idea of the afterlife and Egyptian mythology.

I wanted to try doing something a bit different with it so i stayed away from colour and stuck to tone. I'm Probably gonna get this printed on to T-shirts.

Lion King



Another acrylic painting, this one I did for my brother.

I decided to try out working on hard board instead of canvas, its a lot easier to paint on and a lot cheaper so I'll probably continue to use it, if i can find some.

The picture isn't the best, I was trying to avoid the glare from the sun.

Confusing The Dead

I Read that in 18th century Britain suicides were buried at crossroads to confuse the malicious spirit if it reawakened. so I decided to draw it.
I'm not to keen on the background but it is needed to make the image make sense so it had to stay

Bananas


I had the idea for doing these characters after going to a botanical garden, I thought it would be good to do literal representations of the different types of bananas that you can get,

there's one more banana type I might do and I might have a go at some other fruits or plants too.

Eat Your Greens!

idea i had whilst thinking about catchphrases and things people say, original idea came from a slogan i came up with; eat your greens, or they'll eat you! 

might play around with adding text onto it, dunno yet though.

Cerberus Tee


this is a design I submitted to Alltropical.com, the website lets users vote on tshirts designed by other users, and whoever gets the most votes wins £150!

thought I'd give it a go and came up with this. the idea is about what Cerberus would be like as a puppy.

I'll post a link to the website once my design is up.

summer memories







Final outcome for a part collaboration project, working around the theme of memories triggered by a song, this is based on the song 'Save Tonight' by Eagle Eye Cherry and my holiday to crete in the summer. its a large acrylic painting on canvas.
it was quite ambitious of me to work on such a large scale but i enjoyed the challenge and im pretty pleased with the outcome

The Beautiful People

This is my final image for a self initiated project, i had the idea to have glamour models with their skin removed to show whats underneath, so that it takes away from the sexual connotations of the poses and makes them more of a study of the human body. also because i wanted to try and do some proper detailed drawings.
