Since working in the print room, i've been experimenting a lot more. This particular Print was created with two colours, but using those two to create a third. So in this image, I'm using the red and blue to create a purple.
The image its self is from my new book I'm working on. It's a book of circus animals, and is very close to completion now! (though its taking longer than i would've liked)
I'm happy with how the image turned out, but there were a few problems with the screen which meant a few of the prints didn't turn out as well as the others. This is how it turned out.

This is the minotaur logo i drew for Gnargore. If I'm honest, the idea came from Boys brain. The drawing was inspired by mainly by taxidermy and Arnie.
I printed the image up as a kind of poster too. The boys like it, so that makes me happy.
It was really cool drawing this, it was a nice change from what i'd usually draw, and its probably encouraged me to try out some different things.

A Friend of mine Tom, a photographer, approached me and asked me to do a kind of collaboration with him. He was doing a photo shoot for a new band called Muchuu. He wanted some illustrations to accompany the photos he had already taken.
The images were very dark, so i decided that the illustrations would be better done in white. They were also taken outside, which gave me a lot of ideas of what I could do with them. I played with idea of nocturnal animals, day time/night time, but in the end i went with the theme of outside/inside. Using basic outlines created by the 'outside' objects i drew some 'inside' objects and lay them on top.

At my Final Degree Show i was approached by Urban outfitters, they asked if i'd like to have some of my work up in their store! To which i replied.. "Of Course!" They'd asked my friend James too (he's a phtographer), and it went really well! I used my 'Inspirational Hair' Images, but played around with the colour schemes, made them brighter and such, to fit in more with the Aesthetic of the shop.
