I’ve been trying to experiment more with a flatter art style with my digital work. I was inspired to paint these wendigo illustrations, and I am fairly pleased with how they’ve turned out.



While on a ferry to Ireland a couple of months ago I was inspired by the waves and landscape to digitally paint this image, featuring this quote by Alfred Lord Tennyson

Below the thunders of the upper deep,

Far, far beneath in the abysmal sea,

His ancient, dreamless, uninvaded sleep

The Kraken sleepeth: faintest sunlights flee

About his shadowy sides; above him swell

Huge sponges of millennial growth and height;

And far away into the sickly light,

From many a wondrous grot and secret cell

Unnumbered and enormous polypi

Winnow with giant arms the slumbering green.

There hath he lain for ages, and will lie

Battening upon huge sea worms in his sleep,

Until the latter fire shall heat the deep;

Then once by man and angels to be seen,

In roaring he shall rise and on the surface die.

Courtney Love

Decided to have a play with watercolours for a change of pace from my comic, I’m sadly too impatient and there’s a lot of unintentional smudging though I’m not sure if it adds or detracts really, or even if it really looks like her (though I think the grungy textures definitely represent Hole). 


Mermaid Project.

Myself and one of my oldest friends Rebecca Taylor are currently working on a project together, we’re drawing mermaids inspired by the months of the year (and also special occasions) so far we’ve created 4 mermaids in different styles. 

January- Narwhal mermaid by Rebecca 

February- ringed seal mermaid by myself 

March- Blue whale mermaid by Rebecca


April- Jellyfish mermaid by myself

Formby Beach -Lanscape practice

I’m working on a bigger illustration right now and needed a break and a play so I drew this picture of formby beach from a photograph I took. I loved the contrasts in the photo so accentuated them here as well as tried to get a mystical kind of feeling to it, overall I’m fairly pleased since landscapes aren’t my strong suit. 


sea slugs

Sea slugs are some of the cooler animals of the sea. The type in my picture, the Blue sea slug is particularly cool, they often get stung by jellyfish and absorb the poison and use it on other sea creatures, they’re also very beautiful! So, here’s my stupid sea slug illustration! Drawn in Photoshop, oh and I don’t think sea slugs swim like this but I thought it looked cool

Still on a water drawing kick since yesterday’s jellyfish….



As a bit of a follow up to my Groot sketch I did last week, I decided to test out my braaaand new surface pro 2 and Wacom feel carbon 🙂 i’m pretty happy with my purchase! and i’m fairly happy with my painting! Getting ready for uni!
