This was a 10-minute illustration of Mike Tyson
This was another digital illustration done right before the 2011 Superbowl kicked off:
This poster was a personal project which I designed for a contest online.
I can’t win as prizes only for US residents, but it made for an interesting project.
The next 3 images were all entered into a contest run by Crazy4Cult, with the winner being displayed in poster form in an LA art gallery – of which the third image made it into the final 10, which went to an online vote. You can see the other entries here – http://g1988.blogspot.com/2008/08/test-contest.html
An illustrated poster for the cult horror film ‘Candyman’.
2 legends doing battle in ‘Way of the Dragon’.
The director Kevin Smith (Dogma, Clerks) was one of the judges who voted on this design, which incorporates 2 cult films – and this design became the inspiration for my own corporate identity.
I am currently working on a series of large televison related illustrations, for a collection to be entitled ‘Cult Viewing’ – these are a few of the sections from The Wire which Ive been working on…
The next two are both musical illustrations – the first one was used on tour posters for a band called ‘Sunrise not Secular’, while the second is a general design that I hope to use on something in the future.
Illustration incorporating each band member playing for the Scottish tour posters.
A musical montage design.
I also enjoy combining photography and illustration to create strong visual images, as depicted below.
