Recently taking a few spare days to go back to my roots of hand sculpting. This is very much a test piece, just to get my eye back in before I make some work to mould and cast up. This is sculpted in NSP Chavant mediun and stands about 3" tall. After zbrush sculpting for so long now I've gotten a little rusty but always enjoy the process of using clay immensely. Got about another day left on this guy to really refine and add some subtleties.

So, finally getting to grips with the feel of this guy. Been teaching myself all the curve functions and new tools in zbrush along the way. This is exactly the feel I was going for, the ageing punk, washed up but still holding on to the attitude and swagger.. Few tweaks to the polypainting and he's done. Boom..

This is one of a set of drawings I've been developing recently. I'm exploring the pipeline from sketchbook to finished illustration and attempting to refine my illustrative style in the process. As usual there's some weird stuff coming out in the book but I'm generally happy with how these are going. I'd so love to animate something in this style but having to force myself away from that palette in photoshop and plough on with the ideas first. The timeline can wait.. for a few weeks anyway.

Well, this has taken me a while to get together but wanted to post my paintings in full from a recent group exhibition I had with friends Phil Gomm and Phil Cooper in Whitstable. I've been beavering away at these studies over the winter since I acquired a truck in which to work while waiting to move house. A rare opportunity to be able to experiment and get messy for a while. I'm now packing up the truck studio ready to put down roots in Whitstable. Lucky for me my new space/ workshop is equally as inviting as this one, if a little warmer. Big thanks to Mr Louca, Mr Buckley and Mr Jones for providing great faces to paint, all good men..

There's no getting away from it, the blog has become a little neglected of late, what with putting exhibitions together and lots of lovely freelance work. This space is well overdue a spring clean, in the mean time here's a little quickie, a burst of excitement and fun. If you know me you'll also know it's a work in progress..
