Private commissions mostly
Bit of this, Bit of that
Nina Simone painting I did for Poster Posse's Women's History Month celebration. Simone is a bit of a hero of mine so when I was asked for a woman who inspired me it was a close call between the fictional Ellen Ripley and Nina Simone.
I'm a massive fan of Louis Theroux so I did this sketch of him in his recent shabby look. I wanted to do something quick and something that could work editorially and did outline sketch in pencil,shading with graphite and a splash of colour with watercolour at the bottom. All on a Wacom Intous Pro in Photoshop CC with Kyle T Webster's custom brushes.
'Spiers at Foy'
Private commission of Lt. Col. Ronald Spiers running through the town of Foy in the episode 'Breaking Point' of HBO's critically acclaimed Band of Brothers.
Drawn using 4H-4B pencils as well as graphite and charcoal, I referenced a number of shots from one of the most famous scenes in the series capturing Donnie Wahlberg's Sgt. Lipton in the foreground watching on as Spiers sprints through German tanks and infantry (in background).
- 23" x 12" (WxH)
One of my favourite Kubrick films and moments. After infamous "Here's Johnny!" scene Jack chases his son Danny through the halls of the Overlook hotel. Having killed Mr. Hallorann,a seemingly empty shot is slowly filled by a rising Torrance with a look of complete madness in his eyes.
This was drawn digitally in Photoshop on a Wacom Intuos using 4H and 2H pencils to rough sketch and then finished in HB and 2B pencils. Took about 8 hours from start to finish.

"Pain is inexhaustible it's only people that get exhausted."
Colin Farrell as Ray Velcoro. The first in a planned series of the detectives in True Detective Season 2 on #HBO. Drawn using a Wacom Intuous and using 4H/2H & HB pencil brushes in Photoshop and then using an adjustment layer to turn black pencil into blood red.
Toad from 'The Wind in the Willows'
Private commission for Christmas. A slight departure from my usual style of heavy pencils,I started out seeking to replicate the style of Quentin Blake with strong thick and inky outlines and then instead of watercolouring went with acrylics and sponge brushes to get texture into Toad.
The shark is still working
'Bruce' the shark from Steven Spielberg's classic-and the best film of all time-JAWS. I used this in the Jawrassic World image,didn't need to get quite so detailed but I really enjoyed the oil paints in Photoshop,and,it's Bruce the shark.
