Painting With Acrylics

I saved up £7.99 and got some canvas from fielders in wimbledon. Gave myself 1 hour with a piece of charcoal and some acrylic paints with after seeing some Arthur Rackham Illustrations and this is what i came up with. Took a quick picture with my webcam and the bright areas just come out as pure white so I will take a picture in the day time and hopefully get some better lighting with a better camera.

Just watched this film directed and written by Robert Rodriguez, who worked on many films such as Desperado, From Dusk Till Dawn, Spy Kids, Once Upon a Time in Mexico, Grindhouse: Planet Terror and Sin City comes Machete, which is pure awesomeness. Leaving a little trailer here for you guys.

And here is some pages i scanned in today from my sketchbook I kept when I was at kingston university.

Self Portrait

did a quick self portrait in photoshop, about 15-20 minutes, from a mirror and made it slightly stylized to make it quicker to do.

There is a new series to the BBC called Renaissance Revolution, if you like art illustration or history is a great one to keep an eye on, the first episode is on Raphael (if you at university with me then thats the guy who did school of athens which the lecturer showed us in visual language on the first day) very educational and you learn a bit about composition and is a must watch if your interested in art.

Photo Montage

Well in an assignment from a uni module i was give the options to either create a surreal photo montage or do 8 drawings of several objects and see which angle is best for this object and why, I had alot on my plate so i did the photo montage, I dont really approve the message but it looks kinda cool


Some people have asked me what the message is exactly, well its about the use of religion to justify violence. now you know that, have a look and see what else it means to you... love to hear your thoughts!

The Web Family #1

A cartoon strip about a family but... their son is a giant spider... Was thing about doing Flies at the Office along with it showing Mr. Web at work, but his co-workers will be flies... kinda weird I know but great set up for some insect jokes and maybe office and family jokes made even funnier since they are all freakishly large insects and arachnids...

Edit: I am going to give it more narrative and work more on the character design, by Monday there should be an art bible and script posted here or at least a sneaky peak ^^

Thanks for all your feedback guys
