2013 in reflection

Was having a bit of a reflect back over my art from 2013 and the sort of stuff I got up to. A lot of Ozcomics challenges, A few pictures for the Dredd sequel campaign, a heck of a lot of napkin art, and I also published the first issue of my comic book, From Above. It'll be interesting to see what 2014 will have in reflection with now the third issue of my book about to hit the stores. Here's hoping this year was a productive as the last!

Steambot gets made in 3d again

Over the years I've had modellers want to create some 3d models of some of my character illustrations and its always a blast at see someone bring your creation into 3d. Of these sketches my little steambot seems to have been a popular choice for 3d visualisation. The latest 3d conversion is by deviant artist, Kaladam: http://kaladam.deviantart.com/art/Steampunk-zbrush-429814178

If you had to ask me what what would be more awesome than getting to do the art on one of the pages in the new Gaining Velocity : Darker Forces book, then I would have to say - getting to do tha,t and being on the same double page spread as Dean Rankine!!! Damn cool!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
