From normal dogs to re-animated dogs. ...and no I'm not barking up the wrong tree.

Come! Sit! Lay down! Roll over! ...yes I was talking to you, dear reader. ...and as you didn't do as your told there's NO Scooby-Snacks for you!

Below is a recent pet commission I finished today. Just a little something extra I do to keep the pennies rolling in. (They make good Christmas presents too by the way)

Tomorrow I am off to meet Brendan O'Neill of Stickleback Productions regarding his Scampenstein Animation/Graphic Novel project. It seems I'm going from one dog to the next. You never know... you could be seeing Scampenstein in your local cinema someday soon. ...and what do dogs eat at the cinema? Pup-corn! (The best dog joke I could find in a google search)

Sketch by sketch I stretch your face

I thought I would give you a sneak peek behind the scenes of my work. For this I choose a recent commission I did for a Wedding present. Once finished this was then printed onto canvas.
Commissioned caricature of an English Rose and an Aussie who got engaged in Paris. From the pencil sketch, inked drawing, computer coloured final image and a photo from the client of the canvas print as it was delivered.

Freelancers congregate for some Creative Company

Working as a self employed artist is great ... but you can get a little stir crazy after a while of always being on your lonesome.  In an attempt to integrate with other studio-bound individuals and forge some creative alliances I have started a fortnightly meet up for freelancers dubbed Creative Company.  The first meeting was today and it was attended by myself, Giuseppa Barresi and Jason Dennis all of MC² fame.  When they were busy working I took a crafty photo of them (below). I used the time today to work on a commission of a Crowned Eagle for someone at Warwick Castle which can be seen above.  Its not quite finished yet but I'm pleased with the results so far.
