Sunny Day

Quick little drawing whilst having a cup of tea down near south station. Added a little summer colour in photoshop.

Advanced Photoshop

In your local newsagents now is the latest edition of Advance Photoshop magazine. I know a little bit about this photoshop, it plays a big part in the creation of my illustrations. And maybe I'm an advanced user in some peoples eyes. Anyway I was pretty chuffed when they asked me to contribute some illustrations for their fine publication. Check out pages 20-21 of issue 31, there you should find a nice double page spread featuring some of my favourite pieces of work.

Lovely stuff.

Tea, Music & boxes.

Quick update on things. No response from Thumbtack Press so far so guess I've joined the 99% of submissions that don't make the cut. I'll try again sometime in the future and attempt to make the accepted 1%. Looking into other avenues with regards to prints, hopefully I'll have something sorted in the next few months.

My time of living and working in Boston is coming to an end. I'm moving back to England in July after a little jaunt down the west coast, starting in Seattle and finishing in Las Vegas. Hopefully I'll see and experience some inspiring things and do some good sketches to post on the blog.

The apartments full of boxes, plenty of packing still to do.

Cheers.

Bountee delivered

Ordered my shirt on the 24th April, by the 12th May it was snuggley stuffed in the mailbox. Quality wise the prints pretty good as is the shirt. Emma ordered a girls shirt which arrived the same day and again I'm really happy with how it's come out.




Drop on over to bountee.com to get your own, and to those who have already put in an order, thanks very much.

Cheers.

Thumbtack

I've submitted a couple of my illustrations to Thumbtack Press for their consideration. If accepted I'll be able to create prints of the illustrations for sale through Thumbtack. They do have pretty high, I mean really high standards. In fact they reject 99% of the work submitted to them. So we'll just have to wait and see if they like them enough to add them to their gallery. I'll never know unless I give it a shot.

Cheers.

Website

I've made a few little changes to my website, which I hope you'll agree have made it look a bit more aesthetically pleasing. Simplifying the navigation bar to just text, instead of the chunky boxes I feel looks and works much better. The illustrations have been shuffled around too, going in a more chronological order now. Also adding a couple of new pieces including a t-shirt design for bountee.com. I have a shirt on order, so I can check out the quality of the shirt and print. According to their jargon, they use a 'state of the art DTG (Direct To Garment) printing process'. Not vinyl or iron on transfers and is directly comparable to screen printing, which sounds good. so I'll let you know how things look when my shirt arrives.



Cheers.
