It’s the pebble/snake combo that really ups the ante on ideas.
Also yes that is the approximate upper body to stumpy leg ration I have going on.
ashfloescent said: hello, I'll be first year, illustration major at ARU this september. I found your blog while I was browsing for illustration course at ARU and I love all of your works ! especially, your ink sketches! I did art and design foundation at aru this year, and that's when I started to keep drawing and want to be illustrator! These days, I keep thinking how can be much better ! Just wanted to ask you is there any advice for beginner at illustration to be better? had so much fun seeing all of yourworks
Good choice in going to ARU - I had a great time there! I’m glad you like my work too (thanks!)
So in terms of being ‘better’ (a slippery term if ever there was one) I have a few pieces of advice:
So it looks like I had more to say than I thought!
When you start, please tell Chris and Pam I say hi, as I don’t live in Cambridge any more and don’t get to see them much. Tell them I’m hearing nothing but good things about how the course is going, and I’ll try to catch them next time I’m in Cambridge.
All the best, I’m sure you’ll be great. If your year group are anything like mine you’ll all take huge leaps in your first year and be pretty awesome by the time you start year two. Don’t forget to have fun too! It can be as easy to do too much work as too little.
Let me know if I missed anything you’d like to know, and keep in touch. I’d love to know how you get on.
A nice little group of #French promotional enamel #badges from #Tynemouth today

You’ll have to change it in your own heads, Shirley didn’t think ahead to my requirements at this time. Selfish.
I just finished a risograph test print!! Check ‘it out!
SFLPB ‘14 - The SF Lapel Pin Badge is a brass and cloisonné deluxe emblem for the S.F. series. Included is a 44-page, 4-color risograph comic book (previewed above) inside a screen-printed and sealed plastic package. The class of 2013’s pin was navy. Join the class of 2014 in burgundy!
(If you have already ordered one, you rule. But you know that.)
Preorder it at the Screentone TV shop (LINK) this weekend. On Monday I’m putting in the order at the great big pin badge factory, and then it’ll be a couple months to make the pins, print and assemble the books, package etc. They’ll be released in September.

Starting background work for the new #comic, which will drop presumably in twelve years when I’ve had time to do it. #illustration
In honour of a nice little mention on today’s Ohh Deer Creative Safari, I thought I’d blog them all together. Did them aaages ago for a show in London, and I’m having a real urge to revisit them with different working methods.
Goopy crystal monster guy for the comic
Working on some #character #design refinements for a #comic.
I’ve been feeling very hot and gross lately, so it’s been hard to sit down and make traditional art. Instead, I made a little newspaper coupon for Donut Wolf, a donut shop from Night In The Woods. What secrets does this shop hold? Is their coffee any good? Is there such thing as a “Donut wolf?”
Find out in Night In The Woods. When I first saw the trailer for this game I flipped. This game clicks with me so much. oh man.
omg i love this so much. i am really weirded out by how close this seems to something we’d put in the game.
