Tea Cosy Signage

My Mother-In-Law is in the process of opening up a baby friendly tea room locally. Wanted me to mock-up some logos, signs & an overall look and identity to the place.
Called The Tea Cosy, here's some initial logo ideas...

The place will be serving high tea. She wanted to incorporate that into the logo, including a particular shade of green. Which will be part of the overall colour scheme. But we needed something simple if we wanted a logo. We settled on this...

 
 
We then needed some signage. She expressed an interest in a kind of American Cheese Cake Pin-up look. I thought we should go for something more "conservative" & British. I did both. This is what we came up with.

Gravity

So the folk of The Pinched asked me to illustrate a poem for them. Gotta say the subject matter was...kinda vague. So there was little to actually envision.

Yeah, I didn't get it either. But I came up with this. Will finish it later.

Inspired by song...

Recently submitted my name to an up & coming magazine for possible work in future. To evaluate my style further, I was then asked to illustrate one of the following...


I went with Option 2. Never heard the song before. Had to study the lyrics & just draw what I heard.What dya think, does it invoke the vibe of the song? This is not the final version. will change accordingly & may colour it in later on....think I may do more pieces "inspired by song" in future.

No rhyme or reason. If you notice it's kinda inspired by Wes Anderson(King Of The Hipsters) movie posters.

Top Secret

Sorry but the explanation to the images below is top secret. I can't tell you what they are, but if you've been following my blog. You should figure out they're to do with Vampire Boogie.
Lets just say, we're...expanding.
We're taking the grounded street-level narrative & attaching it to an underlying sprawling epic.
