Hitler's Deficiency

Never ever thought I'd be drawing an illustration about Hitler's supposed deficiency. Had to keep this one clean so only a suggestion of the subject!

I want my medicine mummy

Seemingly in olden days they used powdered egyptian mummies in an assortment of medicines. Very odd but lends itself to a good pic!

Ya Beauty

Panto poster for the Tron Theatre Glasgow. They wanted something a little bit 'anarchic' showing the characters in the Panto. The anarchy and the number of characters on the poster were reduced as were the boobies on 'Bunty' but it still ended up a fun pic!

Hercules a jolly good fellow

Working on two books for Oxford University Press at the moment. 'Thor and his Stolen Hammer' and 'Hercules' as pictured here in this rough. Many, many illustrations and only a few weeks to do them!

You win some...........

Pitches - bah! Just worked on a project to develop some animated characters for NHS Choices with an old colleague Trevor Pake. Didn't make it to the next stage of the pitch though which is disappointing as I think we produced a great presentation and a Trevor created a great script - even though I do say it myself. Would have been great to bring this fella to life! Never mind - bring on the next project!

The Died Laughing Cavalier

The Q&A for this month's BBC History asks 'Has anyone ever died laughing?'
Thought the Laughing Cavalier was a good pic to parody here!
Maybe the return of putting collage in my pics...?
