I do like drawing and painting teacups, not sure why. These ones can be found in the shop.

I spent a lovely couple of hours doing a little piece for Amelia's Magazine to go alongside a review of Emmy the Great's latest album Virtue. It is very rare that an illustration turns out exactly how I have it in my head, but some times things just fall together. So here is my initial sketch, she does look naked behind the cake (and has no hair), but I was happy with it:
And from the first sketch I just carried on adding detail and colour, and here is the finished illustration:

A friend of mine asked if I could draw him a tattoo. I asked what he wanted, and he said a cute zombie pinup girl. I must admit it isn't something I've drawn before, but I managed to come up with this lady.
Making the undead sexy without being grotesque was a bit of a challenge, but I'm quite proud of how it turned out. I wonder if he will get it tattooed, if he does, I'll make sure I get a photo.
