Manga Jiman 2016 Exhibition and Comics update

First blog post of the year 2017! So, I finally managed to update the comics page with my Manga Jiman entry from 2015, entitled “Shadow of a Doubt”. I did want to add it last year, but I kept forgetting ^^;. It was an idea that I came up with…

Twelfth Night (GSC Competition)

Last month (in February) I decided to enter the Graphic Shakespeare Competition as a drawing exercise. The challenge was to interpret a selected Shakespeare scene into a 4-page comic and I decided to try illustrating a scene from “Twelfth Night”, in which Cesario (Viola) has a conversation with Orsino. I…

  Below are the terms and conditions for these commissions. Sorry if it seems a little overbearing but I like to make sure people know what to expect from me and what I expect in return. If you’d like a commission at a higher resolution or have questions after reading…

Dear Deer

So, one morning I woke up with an image of a deer with antlers that bloom flowers. I’m not quite sure why I had this image in my mind but I thought it was too interesting and vivid an image not draw, so I did :D!  (If you like this…

B is for Basilisk

It’s been months since I’ve completed my ‘Aspidochelone’ piece so I thought it’s about time that I’ve completed my BASILISK! The basilisk has the ability to turn anyone to stone with just one glance. I don’t know if that’s on eye contact or if it can turn anything to stone…

Am I finally making progress with this website? Maybe! I’m still working on my gallery and comics section, but the pages are at least now viewable in the menu section. Writing an ‘about me’ page proved troublesome, but I think I’ve finally sorted it out (I might decide to change…

A is for Aspidochelone

Finally, my first post of the year. We are three months into 2015 but anyway, Happy New Year! I’ve realised recently that I don’t draw creature art often enough so I’ve decided to challenge myself by drawing an A-Z of mythical creatures (one creature for each letter of the alphabet)….
