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.

One day this will all be animated. Until that time enjoy it for what it is in all it’s primitive glory.

Upside Down

July 8, 2011

Some time ago, way back in April I was at Kapow Comic con in London. I met a friendly bunch of guys in Upside Comics who’s aim is to promote literacy in children and young people through comic books which i’m all for as there seems to be a celebration of deliquency and mediocrity these days in our culture. I’m referring specifically to television/film, music and video games.

I know I sound like a grumpy old bastard but anything that can curb this and educate people and get them to do something constructive is a good thing in my book (no pun intended).
I did a one page comic with a conflict and resolution.

The hardest part was thinking of a situation, the drawing was…is…another story. I showed my mum and she said ‘it’s a bit primative’ which I quite like.

You too can do one, just follow the LINK, and follow the instructions.
