The Legend of Arthilian Book Cover

August 14, 2012

Just over a month ago I did a book cover for a friend of mine; Daniel Marchant. He’s 14 and just written his first novel, a dark fantasy book called The Legend of Arthilian. I was asked if I would create a cover and since all the proceeds of the book go to pancreatic cancer I said yes.

Out of the two versions I proposed the top one was picked to be the final one.

…And Doodles For All

July 22, 2011

I never go anywhere without my sketch book, as a result I end up showing quite a lot of people my doodles…

(ahem)

The results are quite mixed. People are either enthusiastic about them or they just go silent.

I recently finished a sketch book, ending a 6 month era and it got me thinking. What am I going to do with all of these books that I have finished? Leave them in a dark corner gathering dust or show them to people? Would anyone even want to see them?

I figure if I put them online at least people have the option of seeing them and it’s always nice when someone gets a kick out of my work.

Thusly, I shall be posting new and old doodles since I have a fair amount of material from not too long ago that I think is worth sharing.

Here are two to start off with..

Street Fighter Collab

October 3, 2010

I feel old.

I’m not, I just feel like I am.

About a week or so ago we had a family friend and her son over for the weekend. I was about to go out and had let the son use my computer for facebook or whatever whilst I was getting ready. I walk past him and see he’s playing some browser based football game on facebook. I thought, if you’re going to waste time playing games at least play a good one, so I said:

Me: Do you want to play a real game?

Him: What game is it?

Me: Street Fighter 4.

Him: What is Street Fighter 4?

Me: You know? Street Fighter 4.

Him: No, what is Street Fighter 4?

Me: I don’t believe this, you must know Street Fighter!

Him: No I don’t! What is Street Fighter?!?!

Me:
It’s STREET FIGHTER! One of the greatest beat ’em ups EVER made!

Him:
Do you mean the game that came before Tekken?

Me: …. (sigh) yes, the game that came before Tekken.

Besides making me feel like an old man it got me thinking about a street fighter pardoy a friend of mine had found on newgrounds a while ago and had linked to me. I thought it was pretty funny and worth sharing.

It’s on newgrounds if you want to see it in better quality and also allows you to select individual sketches.

BEWARE: There are some odd ones, some of them are pretty dark…but on the whole it’s funny stuff.
