Bye, Michael!

It's weird when an icon dies. Somehow you expect them to be there forever like Coca Cola. As my friend Woodrow said last night, "It's like Batman's died". Odd. I so wanted this jacket when I was 11.

Anyone wanting a fitting musical tribute to Michael could do far worse than J. Period's Man or the Music mixtape. LInk via the excellent Kevin Nottingham blog.

Assorted Sketches

Cleaning up my desk tonight I found loads of discarded sketches on various bits of paper. I've scanned the best ones in and arranged them on one page just for you. Yes, you!

Creepy Tree-ptych

Here's a "tree-ptych" (see what I did there?) featuring two creepy trees and a tree creature. Once again, acrylics and POSCA.

Inspector Cumulus Toy

Here's Cumulus! Well, not really. This incredible virtual sculpt has been created by the brilliant Vijay Paul of Vdesign. To see the original illustration that it's based on click HERE. The next step for me now is to shop this around and see if any designer vinyl companies would be interested in producing it. If you have any thoughts I'd love to hear them.

Blue Tree Canvas

More messing around with POSCAs, acrylics and canvases. I seem to either draw girls with long complicated hair or stylised trees. I should draw a complicated hair girl/tree combo. Oh, wait a minute, I have.

Sunday Painting
