When no one else will pose for you...

Beaches are more charming in Sepia

Here are some photographs I found in my late-great-aunt Dorrie's photo albums. I was inspired by "World War 2 in Colour" and did some unsubtle colouring :)

I experimented with colour and texture on this doodle I drew of Donovan in his youth. I coloured it in Photoshop.

I am in the exciting process of making animations, I'll post them when I have them finished.

I painted this fish with black ink. It has a nice texture on the canvas if you want to zoom up on it and see!


I drew a horse for Redneck Manifesto.

Gamba Song 3

My first attempt of using After Effects to create an animation. It is a bit weird and trippy and there are countless things I would love to change in it, but it is a happy first of many more I hope. The song was composed by Ella Jarman-Pinto.

I'm just going to attach a link of it below because I don't know how to make the video box smaller to fit in my post!

Gamba Song 3.

Here are some still shots of the animation.

My third bird related post

Here is a bird that I stitched together last year. He sits on a perch in my sitting room. I'll make a stop-start animation with him soon.

I found Superman sitting on a curb in Barcelona

Sections of a larger picture I did last year...

And there she goes with a banjo under her arm...

I am writing and illustrating a children's book at the moment. Here are the two main characters:

this character is based on my cousin, Josh, who is the same kid in the Overhead, the Albatross EP artwork.

this character is based on my Granny.

Overhead, The Albatross

On another bird-related topic, I was asked to design an EP cover for a band called Overhead, The Albatross. They make lovely music and I enjoyed making art to it.

I know where the birds sleep

Yes, I found out where birds sleep. While walking through the Liberties on my way to college, I looked up and saw a very crowded tiny roof lined with sleeping birds. It warmed my heart that they all picked one roof out of about 10 attached roofs. Roofs or rooves? I had to look up 'roof' in the dictionary there to check it was an actual word as it occurred to me that it sounds very strange. roof.
