If It Bleeds, We Can Kill It

I grew up in the 1980s and early 90s and, like all sensible boys and girls, ultra-violent, one-liner-filled action movies on VHS were a large proportion of my cinematic diet.  Predator was always one of the best, surpassing (alongside the Terminator movies) Arnie's typical fare to provide a tense, iconic sci-fi slasher movie like no other.

Flames... On The Side Of My Face...

I have started doing some more Little Portraits, as they're fun and people seem to like them.  Clue is a big favourite in our household - a fantastic mix of cosy crime, farce and screwball comedy.  Just a perfect, one-of-a-kind film.  And Cluedo is also my favourite game of all time, so it all comes together perfectly.  If ever there was a film begging for a Ladykillers-quality stage adaptation, it's this.

Fringe Pig

I did the cover artwork for Issue 0 of FringePig, the magazine version of the infamous comedy website based around the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.  Mustard magazine, for whom I was a regular illustrator, are teaming up with FP to produce the magazine.

Scooby Gang Commission

A personal commission of the main cast of Buffy I did for James Howard.  It's always quite tricky getting the likenesses while keeping them in my regular style and without descending into exaggerated caricature hell.  I think I did a pretty good job, but it's an ongoing process.

Guess The Year Illustration

Finally finished the colours on my 80's film illustration. As the exhibition I created it for has been and gone and there's no deadline anymore, I've been playing around with it for a while on my lunch breaks.  Think I have it at a place where I'm happy with it now.

Can you tell me:

(A) The year

(B) The films

(C) which film scored highest at the box office that year?

Foxes Commission

Here is the artwork from a commission I did last year for my friends' wedding invitations.  I used it as an opportunity to cut back on lines in favour of block colour.
