Yippee-Ki-Yay, Motherfucker

A Die Hard little portrait set to celebrate it's 30th anniversary.  This has been a firm favourite since I was little - 1980s action movies being a staple part of my adolescent viewing diet - and, as far as I am concerned, John McTiernan is the undisputed king of the genre.

John Carpenter Movies

Digital illustrations of my favourite John Carpenter movies, framed in glorious 2.35:1 aspect ratio, as the master preferred.  (purists will note that he did not shoot Dark Star and some other films in this aspect ratio, but sod it)

This year I'm trying to do a mini-project every month to stretch and challenge myself.  This is May's.  I've been experimenting with this technique - a sort of scrappy low-poly illustration - in class for a wee while.  Not sure at this point if it is too much of a departure from my usual work to include on my website.

Night Terrors

For the BALTIC event the other week I put out a new wee comic - Night Terrors.  It is a little humorous short story about talking in your sleep.  It had been a while since I had done a comic just for myself, so I really wanted to put something out to break the tension.  I've got the urge to do something longer now.

Night Terrors is available to purchase here.

SPAM 2018

The Saturday before last I exhibited at SPAM, the BALTIC Self-Publishing Artist's Market in Gateshead.  It was a fantastic day - really nice to exhibit amongst print-makers and artists for a change, rather than all cartoonists and comic book creators.  The free event brought in a lot of curious passersby, making for a much broader clientele than most events I do - I feel I sell better to the comics-curious than 'proper' comics fans anyway, as there's very little action and superheroism in my work.
