Last Day At Boardworks...

Christmas is so close and of course it's super pouring with rain. It's my last day at Boardworks! In 2014 I will no longer be their Digital Designer, Illustrating, Animating and Graphic-Designing in a variety of ways to help children learn with interactive software. Next year I will be moving to London to work at Tiger Aspect for Series 2 or Mr. Bean, which is still blowing my mind with a mixture of PURE EXCITEMENT and omg fear. 

Here is some stuff I did for BW GCSE Computing in the summer. Robby the Robot and his sidekick (bandmate?) Edwin feature in both KS3 and 4 ICT/Computing I think, I'm honoured to know that some of my characters will continue their noble mission of educating teh kidz after I've left BW!

Daft Punk's new album had just come out when I got the brief to draw them as a rock band (with fictional album cover,) so I was delighted when the Editor gave me the go-ahead to spoof Random Access Memories.

Ahhh goodtimes. Boardworks, Imma miss you. 



I kinda liked the expression in this sketch thing I drew today.


Life Drawing in Dublin

I went to Dublin a little while ago to visit animator and buddy Todd Setter
It was nice to go to a life drawing class on holiday, and I was pleased with some of the drawings my hand came up with:

Whilst staying in Ireland I was staying in a house with this awesome barrel-chested feline, Cougar. He was very friendly and showed you his appreciation in the form of quite forceful headbutts...


Advancing Behance

 Hello folks,

A quick note to say that I've been tidying up my stuff on Behance, so now it is all fresh and shiny for you to take a look at. New animations uploaded and I've posted up a Graphic Design section too! Go see, click below:

Updated Behance Portfolio

Here is a mini Heisenberg Shrine I made with fellow illustrator Rob Smyth:

Cheers folks!


If You Like Ukulele Lady... Ukulele Lady Like-a Yoouuuuu

Heh, I did not know this was a Bette Midler song until I just googled the lyrics.

Combining my two hobbies of drawing and ukelele-ing! Ukulele Lady is a song I sometimes play with the grand Oxford Ukuleles group. I tried to get a little Uke-nerdy with this picture and make all the ukes fairly accurate. The one at the bottom is my ukulele :D

I saw the splendor of the moonlight... in Honoluuuuuuluuuu Baaaaaay

Still trying to get this digital painting thang... Progress is being made; sweet, tasty progress.


It Is Rob's Birthday. (on the 11th)

A stupid card for Rob because he likes Ostriches, and apparently giving people the finger.
A quick doodley-doo in Flash.


Horse Trotting!

A horse trot cycle animated in Flash for funzies. :D


Work Fun!

Sometimes at work, usually when someone leaves ( =[ ) I'm asked to draw a leaving present for them. This is always awesome and super fun, which almost makes me wish more people would leave. (Almost!!! I don't want to get lonely...)

Here's a selection of stuff I've drawn for work funzies:

Present for the Publishing Director's leaving do (A brief history of Boardworks):

For the departure of a Marketeer who's off to travel sunny places:

...And for the Marketeers that stayed behind:


124A- Vos Non Creditis

This pic was a leaving present for two of my housemates who are returning home to Brazil. I'm going to miss them like crazy, but maybe a cartoon of us will help dull the pain...

Vos Non Creditis = rough google translate of "You Don't Believe!" in Latin. This was the main catchphrase of the house. Good times!

This was drawn by me, coloured by Rob Smyth:
