I've been working with Random house on these sketches for a book, unfortunately the author didn't see this working as the new cover for the paperback edition, so I won't be taking these drawings to the final stages. These are some of the rough pencils - it's a shame I wont get to finish this project off, as I'm sure the final artwork would have made an excellent cover and sold record breaking amounts of books!

I spent most of January working on this campaign for ITVs new romantic comedy drama. These are the first two of six hand written sentences, each one a different characters 'relationship status' - the concept being that relationships are never quite as simple as 'Married Single Other'. Although the final posters look like they're quick doodles, I spent ages writing and re-writing (and then rewriting again) the lines until we found the final solutions. I tried every type of pen and paper combination. These pics were taken from todays Metro, but over the next few week posters will be going up around the UK, and the agency (BBH) have even booked a whole tube platform at Oxford Circus ! Look out for them - they're going to be really bold, so hopefully you wont miss them.

Here's a little game I played this afternoon... whilst waiting for some feedback from a client, I gave myself 1 hour to do a drawing and 20 minutes to get it scanned and coloured. I think its fun to sometimes not think too much about a drawing and setting a time limit can help that.

These are the "UN-approved & UN-finished" versions of a set of illustrations I made for an Austrian bank. The client preferred a more stripped down and flat colour style using less shading and highlights, but i was very happy with this direction. In the end I had to redo all the colouring, but it seems a waste to not show these versions too. The type hasn't been put in yet at this stage, but I'll post the finals at some point too.
