Almost Dream Designer Cartoonist Job

May 18, 2012

I recently applied for a job. It sounded like a pretty damn good job too, one I could see myself doing long term to pay bills, etc.

I don’t mind relocating for a job, in fact I’m a bit bored of London at the moment. Maybe I need a holiday. Anyway, here’s the job listing:

I sent off a cover letter, CV and showreel to show them how mental I am and can be. I also did a little sketch (as they requested) of what I assume to be Barry (the red berry creature thing) doing something he shouldn’t.

I never heard back from them, not even a ‘thanks but no thanks‘.

That was the tame stuff. Do you reckon it was because it was slightly off model?


Something Nice

September 9, 2011

I’ve just realised that a lot of the images on my blog are quite violent, destructive or contain coarse language.

I don’t think this gives an accurate reflection of me as a person, some might think it doesn’t matter others might think it does. I would like you all to know that I am not a barbarian…all of the time.

Now I realise that drawings are often representative of the artist in some way and reflect what they were feeling. Most of these were done on the train. For those of you unfamiliar with travelling during rush hour on the London underground, it’s often a visceral experience.

Therefore it will come as no surprise that subconciously these are probably my brain’s way of purging all those primitive emotions from the system. That and the gross stuff fascinates me and is generally more fun to draw.

Anyhoooo…I thought I would post a ‘nice’ picture for a change, just to show you that I can.
