Deep Sea Sharks

Did a revamp of my deep sea shark Inktober from 2015 in Risograph

I’m really happy with how the Risograph added colour and style to this old piece! I’m loving Risograph as a medium at the moment as I feel it gives my work a lot of texture and depth and also forces me to think about limited palettes.

This print will be a very limited edition of just 30! If you’d like to grab one I currently have them for sale in my Etsy shop here


New products added this week!

I’ve added some new products to my Etsy store

I’ve added the badges I designed in conjunction with the Kickstarter campaign for our comic. People who bought a physical copy received the whole set of pins for free, now people who missed out can get the set for just £2 here

The creatures featured are:

Angler Fish

Honeycomb eel

Goblin shark

Giant Pacific octopus

Creatures of the Deep pin set

Assorted steampunk gears

Made from upcycled brass and silver coloured gears with silver plated studs. Perfect for steampunk fans! 

Cuttlefish earrings

I’ve also added these lovely hand drawn cuttlefish earrings. I drew these on shrink plastic myself and I’m really happy with how they’ve turned out!  Those of you who follow my blog are probably aware of my octopus obsession already, so I’m sure you can understand why I’d make these beauties!

Animal skull studs 

Because I love biology so much I made these lovely animal studs. There’s a choice of Owl, Bear and Bull skulls and they all look really cool. Again these are hand drawn into shrink plastic by myself. I personally like the Owls the best!

Inktober day 6

I watched an awesome BBC documentary on rare deep sea sharks last night (Legemds of the deep: deep sea sharks available on iplayer currently) with David Attenborough doing commentary. I thought they were beautiful and scary in a primordial way and I just needed to draw them (another ocean obsessed drawing under my belt) 

Sharks in order:

Frilled shark

Goblin shark

Bluntnose sixgill shark

Megamouth shark.

The first image is drawn in derwent 1.0 fineliner and I’m really happy with the results and layout. I kinda wanted an encyclopaedia/ indie vibe. I may scan this image in and explore print options.

The second image I did not so much part of inktober but more because I got a pentel brush pen today I wanted to play with and get a rougher quality image with a Japanese feel as the pen has a Sumi quality. The hirigana in the corner simply means shark, and the shark is saying Hai because…well I actually think sharks seem pretty friendly and look like they’re just saying hi sometimes 🙂
