Dark Elves

Nothing says classic fantasy quite like a darkelf in a purple tunic, this little character is part of our fantasy satire, Jake tends to lead the artwork on that project but I thought I'd have a bash.

Grimhole Comic

The eventual goal of the Grimhole project is to create an original graphic novel/comic book, one that is richly detailed and coloured.
This is just a little a test piece, at the moment the final formant will be in a landscape not as you see here.
 Jacob is still animating his film so the image quality is...well there isn't any.

A couple of things...

Some terrible photos of what I'm working on at the moment.

An awful start....

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-16391857





An awful start to the year... the great cartoonist and illustartor Ronald Searle has fled this mortal coil.




Perhaps most famous for his work on St Trinians he grew to despise his creation which accounted only for a very small part of his body of work yet it followed him everywhere.


He was an extraordinary artist and a great satirist.
Captured during the second world war he made records of his grim imprisonment even though he would be punished or even killed should the drawings be found by his captors.

This is a sad day for the world of illustration.
His wit and draughtsmanship will be missed.

New year

So it's a new year, and Jake has run farway north with our scanner to make his film, leaving me in a bind, not that I will have much time to work this year, it's all about saving money to fund our projects now... oh and you know, food.


So instead of any tit bits of work or sketches heres a lovely postcard of what my home village used to look like way back when... isn't it lovely... it's not lovely anymore >:[
