Weltwoche 2

Wow it's been a busy September - forty-five portraits commissioned thus far! My head is in a (happy) spin. I just wanted to reassure you that I'm still alive and well here in Brighton, planning loads of blogging for next month so watch this space.



Meanwhile here's a recent portrait I did for Swiss mag Weltwoche Stil...

You've Got Talent



My line drawings feature in ‘You’ve got Talent’, a new book about the entertainment industry aimed at teenagers, published by DK. The book is packed with facts about ‘the business’, including basic dance steps, stage make-up techniques and entertainment terminology.


I contributed fifty drawings in total for three graphic novel style double page spreads which introduce the three main chapters of the book; music, dance and drama. Each of these introductory spreads gives a potted history of each respective discipline – from its earliest recorded form, to its current incarnations in chart hits, movies and reality TV talent shows.















I’m really pleased with the finished spreads, which feature an eye-catching mix of line-work, colours, captions and photographic backgrounds. It’s also a refreshing change to see my work in a book aimed at young people!

September

September is here and, after struggling through the last couple of weeks with a nasty cold and a general post-saliva tree slump, I am really looking forward to getting creative again with some new projects.
Coming soon is an announcement about my next big personal project for late 2011. Watch this space!
