Moggy Moo

I've already sold my limited edition Foxy Roxy print that was up in the Firebug bar in Leicester.
I'm going to be replacing her sometime before Tuesday with new print Moggy Moo!

Ain't she cute?

Foxy Roxy is the one at the bottom.
Mousington (top) is still available! Both him and Moggy Moo will be priced at £30 - bargainous!

Marvin the Monster

I've been experimenting with things to make for the Pretty Young Things craft fair in November, and I thought I'd make something based on the promotional poster I made for the event.

HENCE: Marvin the monster was born!

I've only made one of him so far and you can buy him HERE.
But I'll be making more soon, so watch this space...

Marvin the Monster!

Marvin meets his new friends!


Marvin doesn't mind the huge mess that is my office.

This is how Marvin reads comics.

Bye for now, Marvin!

All the plush creatures pictured with Marvin can also be bought at my shop HERE.

Sometimes I have trouble dressing my human characters. I tend to just give them clothes that /I/ would wear. Which doesn't make for a very varied wardrobe...
Also when I'm first drawing a character I have a really bad habit of making them stand like they don't know what to do with themselves, they don't look like they're going anywhere/thinking about anything etc etc.
So I thought looking at women in a fashion magazine might help these problems. I looked at clothes AND postures. Win. (I'll try drawing men real soon).
Here's some of them:

Foxy Roxy

She looks cheeky...

Twesta poster: Pocketbooks

My poster design for the chaps at Twesta Promotions for their upcoming Pocketbooks gig. Usually I try to incorporate the words into the actual illustration, so I thought I'd try something different this time. It's ended up looking a bit comic book-y. Never a bad thing :)
