The Space Penguins continue! I’ve just finished the art for book 4, the image above is from book 3.
Illustration can be a lonely business, so it’s amazing to hear from people who like your work, especially kids! I was really happy today to hear from a mother whose 7-year-old son is a big Space Penguin fan, and I was over the moon to hear I may have inspired him. Look at this great penguin he’s drawn! He’s destined for big things.
I’m even told he’s doing a show and tell about me!?
Josh can expect a signed book and some extra goodies in the post very soon. He has plenty more penguin adventures to read about over the next year!
Y’know those drawing requests I do sometimes? Well, on the 23rd May, I’ll be doing them IN REAL LIFE. I’m a bit nervous, but excited too; it’s gonna be cool!
H.P. Lovecraft drawings. I couldn’t get enough of his work when I was a lonesome teen, and I still love (most of) it. I’m wondering what I could do with these, but it’s fun to experiment with new styles and themes of madness and unspeakable eldritch horror.
Instagramtastic snippets from the past few days.
Quick illustration for my housemate Steve, who’s setting up a crepe stand. He’s paying me in wine, which as a perfectly acceptable currency.
I’ve been drawing a LOT of skulls and skeletons this week.
I made an animation! It’s so bad, but I like the logo at the end.
Made with iPhone, so it’s super jittery and I had no idea what I was doing (which isn’t new…)
On Friday I challenged myself to draw 50 requested images from folks on Twitter. Predictably, 50 proved difficult. So… here’s 33!
