Yellow Penguins! - I really loved my green penguins so I decided to create another little guy to go along with him. I’ll probably make a bunch more as I decided to start selling my characters as clip art and want a nice bulky selection to offer people! 

Hello, new followers! I’m guessing a lot of you are here because you spotted my work on Eat Sleep Draw. Thanks!
If you haven’t notices already, I mostly create cute animal characters and promote my shops and stuff. 
Please also feel free to follow my portfolio tumblr and my Twitter! The links went a bit array so well done for being that patient with me xD

Art Rookie are a UK based site, helping artists to get their stuff out there and on sale. There aren’t many UK based places to sell stuff like this so I was pretty please when they contacted me. They’re also very responsive and let you know if any of your work needs altering for print. 

wordcubed replied to your post: These are some logos I did a little wh…

Was this for a basketball team? They’re really good!

Yeah, it was for a school team or something but they decided to stay with their original branding. Thanks, I’m glad you like them. Logos aren’t really my thing so I was really proud of these :) I’m glad you like them!

These are some logos I did a little while ago as I got commissioned but then before the project even really begun, it got canned. I was pretty pleased with the drawings I had done though so decided to develop the logos anyways. I’m pretty pleased with them, but they don’t feel too much like my usual work so still not sure whether to put them in my portfolio :/ They may come in handy if I ever need examples of logo design though.

Diving For Treasure - Finally got this finished! It’s been in the works for a long time now and this past week I was determined to get it done.

I’m really chuffed with it because I wanted that crowded feeling pictures of reefs give you but still having an image with breathing space. I also wanted a lot to look at, so things in the background, subtle shadows, small animals… And I think it turned out alright. 

Are people interested in seeing them? I’ve been tempted to post them but there are a lot :I I guess I should technically be able to link the Facebook album on here as I set it to public.

Just let me know if any of you actually wanted to see. I also want to show Andy’s amazing photos but he’s not done editing them yet. He took around 1400 so… yeah xD

Bear - A character I was really excited about when I first got round to designing him. He is based on someone I met a few weeks ago and he&#8217;s going to have a little friend joining him at some point. Yet another catcher that I&#8217;m not 100% sure what I want to do with but he&#8217;s got to be used for something!!! His hair looks awesome!!!

30 Day Drawing Challenge: Day 20 - A comic

About a month in the making and I finally for this comic, that was only meant to take a day, done! I’ll admit I ended up taking the comic idea way too seriously and wanted to make something that felt worked on rather than a quick scribble of something. 

I am tempted to start doing more comics to help me keep practiced in sequential illustrations. I will admit the story for this is a bit weak and part of the reason it took so long is that about half way through I felt like it was too weak. I feel bad for saying that as my friend Sam gave me the idea and it is a brilliant idea, I just didn’t know how to make it feel right. In the end, I decided to power through with it and just work with it. I wanted to try keep a limited colour palette so that each panel feels connected but also to alter it as the story went on to show a progression.

Anyway, here you go. And now I won’t be posting anything for a little while as I’m on holiday but then I should have a lot to post once I’m back.
