'If It Ain't Broke...'






... Maybe those are the words the geniuses behind animation marketing live by!

Jim Henson


I heard an interview last week with a guy who went a bit nuts and started to believe that Jim Henson was God - easy mistake to make!

The Walking Dead


So the first season has finished and after a great pilot episode the rest of the show ended up being a great floppy dud! In interviews before the show aired, the producers kept refering to the quality of 'Breaking Bad' as a watermark they want to reach. The poor writing, direction and characterization is more akin to 'V' than the aforementioned. This is disappointment on a 'Crystal Skull' level!

The Walking Dead


Got to see Frank Darabont's take on 'The Walking Dead' last night and it was great. Here's hoping the rest of the season delivers what the pilot did. Another gem from AMC!

Devils!



I got a book off my Mam a while ago called 'the art of the devil'. I tried to cutesify some of the images in the book. The original above is entitled 'the devil plays a monk's head as bagpipes'!!!!!

Gary





Okay folks, I need a bit of help here. I'm sure most people will recognise the work of the illustrator above who signs his work as 'Gary'. I've only ever seen it in the 'Culture' supplement of the Sunday Times but I've been loving his stuff for years now and reckon he's one of the best and most original caricaturists ever. Trouble is, I have no idea who this bloke is! I've trawled the interwebs several times now. I've even contacted the 'Times' and THEY couldn't even tell me who he is! Anyway, this is what I'm asking - if anyone has any clue as to who this person is, I'd be hugely grateful for any info. Fingers crossed!

Hitchcocks!




Dunno why I did this, but last week I did these three sketches of Alfred Hitchcock, one night after the other, all from the same image. I guess It just shows the huge difference between styles and approaches depending on when you go at something. Or maybe I just need to put a bit more thought into my drawing!

A Big 'Un!


This is the largest oil I've done thus far. It's roughly 5 x 2 foot. If I'm going to continue with these monoliths, I'd better make room in the shed!

Breaking Bad


Forget 'Lost', get exorcised from 'Glee', the best show currently airing on t.v. (while we await season 4 of Mad Men!) has to be Breaking Bad. Yaaaay science!

Clash Of The Titans


A sketch of Calibos from the original movie. Not a fantastic flick but charming all the same. Wonder will it be forgotten once the new sexed-up one comes out in a couple of weeks?!

Painting!





So I've started painting in earnest! I took an oil painting course in January with the great Kevin McSherry to help sift through what I need to know and to build up my confidence. It really did the trick and would highly recommend it to anyone. The above are oils on small canvas panels.

'This is my uniform'!



So, what with the wedding and all the other occompanying malarky, I literally haven't drawn in months! The first few drawings after such a hiatus are always hell, but I kinda like this one, it being my first in a loooong while!

Hitched!



So yet again, postings 'round here have been sparse. Mainly due to the fact that Laura and I got hitched over Christmas. Hopefully now that things have returned to their normal pace, the cobwebs will be dusted off this blog a bit more often!
