Destiny fan art sketches
5 October, 2014




Most of my free gaming time has gone into Destiny, these sketches were done a couple of weeks ago, just didn't have time to colour any of them. Not too happy with the queen sketch, I'll probably do another one. Fun game :)

Affinity Press and sketches
25 September, 2014







Been really busy these past few weeks, as it usually is around this time of the year for me. I did some work for independent comic book publisher Affinity Press back in July, here are some of the original sketches (2 more character are missing that'll be uploaded at a later date). Due to other commitments I had to cut my time short with them, it was fun while it lasted :D




Here are some really quick sketches I manage to slip in during work days, I didn't scan them all.

There are a lot of new Mighty Ape artwork but I don't have time to upload those at the moment, plus new small freelance project in the works.

Quick life drawing sketches
25 July, 2014



Really busy the last few days, working with a new start-up comic book publisher as a penciller, that's probably as much as I can say for now. Haven't had time to draw any of my own art, yet! so here are some quick life drawing ink art from a few days ago. As always more Mighty Ape coming soon.

Unused Mighty Ape art
10 June, 2014



Here is an unused Mighty Ape artwork, basically Monkey Tron.

I've decided to pull back on Mighty Ape work (I'm still working for them) so I am looking for other freelance projects. I've worked with Mighty Ape owners for over 10 years now, designing and creating their branding artwork, time for a bit of change :)

Twosome mascot character design
1 January, 2014



Happy new year, here are all the concepts for a new website mascot I helped design called Twosome, which will be launched in a week's time. Only concepts are shown here, you'll be able to see the characters when the site goes live. I even sculpted the final design :D It went from parrot, alien, puzzle pieces and finally into two small robots.
