Guardian Profiles



Here are a couple of profile illustrations done for the Guardian Newspaper this week. One is of Alexei Navalny the Russian protest leader and the other was Ron Paul the Republican candidate.

Hopefully I'll be doing a weekly profile for the time being so expect to see lots of politicians.

Come get your Athletes

I've been recently doing a series of 6 to 8 Athletes every other week for ESPN so while I can't show you the bulk of the new work I've been doing I can show you lots and lots of faces.

These are some of the ones submitted that didn't seem to go bad. If you notice some weeks I'm favouring just the head and other weeks I use more of a bust type - fun facts.





Thanks to art director Munehito Sawada!

January start

So I know I haven't been the most active blogger recently. It seems everything I've been working on can't be shown for a while so I thought I'd put up a few pieces of work from various jobs over the last few months during this quiet blogging period.

I'm bursting to do some personal pieces but until I get some free time they'll just stay as sketches and notes.

These two images were part of a set that accompanied a story from the magazine Woman's Weekly. It involved Scottish glens, and handsome men in kilts. A real page turner.





These next two were done a few months back for a custom chocolate company. I admit the concepts for these were strange to say the least...







Promising to get some more interesting work up soon if it kills me!
