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.

I like your nurse's uniform,guy

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.

The Mother-In Law is starting up a business of homemade bags with funny slogans on them.
I offered to design a logo for her.

Winning!

Being unemployed means you watch a lot of TV. If you can't tell who this is, I'm a terrible artist.

Designing Dante

Going back to the original art, it was kinda hard to see what the hell journalist Dante looked like. From what I could see he was a tall lanky figured bloke in a onesie. The elf-like hat & stitching on his clothing gave me a kind of Paul Kidby Disc World vibe. This story was a modern day story, but had a style set in a distant past or a fantasy look.
What I ended up with is an outfit that's a pastiche of different times. His general look and physicality was kind of combination of Russell Brand & Alan Cumming.
