"I’m whelmed with apathy"

Being neither over~ or under~, just whelmed.

I’m currently planning out a children’s picture book at work, getting the layout working so I can brief the illustrator on all the spreads. I thought this was probably safe to post as my thumbnails are so unintelligible as to offer very little in the way of information regarding the story!

Bloscars illustration

I was recently asked by my friend and former house-mate Adam Marshall to do an illustration for his blog - Bloscars. I’ve really enjoyed getting stuck into a bit of editorial illustration after an embarrassing hiatus from doodling and hopefully I didn’t let the side down too much with the outcome.

I’ll wait till it’s had it’s debut on Adam’s blog to post mine, but you can see 2 dead good illustrations from other contributors Anjoli and Martin  over on the Blog here.

Back from the dead

In the absence of anything new to post up, here are some pencil drawings from the last exhibition I was involved with. They’re all roughly A2-ish in size and drawn with various mechanical pencils. Actually, I use erasers almost as much as pencils for this sort of thing - lots of texture gets put down with pencil, then i heavily work back into it with eraser, then repeat until it looks right.
