just a couple of random panels from Fortune's Luck (aka, the pirate thing i've been working on all this time).

i cannot get over how re-god-damn-diculous that diving panel is. also, drawing stereotypically evil shouty guys with their diabolical little mustaches being total pricks is SO much fun.  you should try it some time.

more album cover design. now with added pseudo cubism!

did you know that the term cubism was coined by french art critic louis vauxcelles when he described a painting as full of little cubes?

the first of a couple of designs for the cover art for some friends'  album.  what little i've heard of their music is pretty damn awesome. unfortunatly, little is the key word here. i'd only listened to three or four songs before i started on this so wasn't 100% sure what to go with....

...hence the many drawings of puddings i'm going to bombard you with over the next couple of days.

this isn't lazy, it's simplistic. yeeeeees, that's right. *shifty eyes*

a design for a tattoo. i don't know if the person ever got it done but if anyone out there feels like humouring me and getting this permenantly embeded into their skin you would make me one very happy camper.

part of that whole illustrating music project thingy-ma-jig. this is like the first second of the minuet waltz- i had some crazy idea that i was going to transcribe the WHOLE song in it's entirety. 

40 minuets in i realized that was NOT happening.

did you know that the minuet waltz doesn't actually last a minuet? even the speediest play throughs clock in at around a minuet and a half. Chopin originally wanted to call it 'the little dog' but his publisher went with the final title with the intention that 'minuet' be interpreted as small.

the cover for the first issue of the pirate comic thing that i'm doing the art for. so much for eye catching... it's way, way, WAAAAY too dark to jump off the shelf (that is assuming Fortune's Luck ever gets there. still waiting for that meeting...).
can you spot the hokusai rip off- er, i mean homage?

and some more of the same. the drawing was done by photocopying the pencil work onto acetate, decicrating the origional with water colours and then very crudly glueing the lot of it together. mmm, professional!

it makes for a nice effect but srsly, so much time and money could have saved if i hadn't been such a total luddite abotu the whole thing.

please try to ignore the doodgy knees. i know i do.

from a series of illustrations i did for my fmp for float on by modest mouse. this was one of those rare occasions where photoshop did indeed prove to be my friend. The cloud templates also ended up featuring in the backdrop we made for airside which was pretty nifty.

on a side note, OH MY GOD, is the music video for that song depressing.

*sniff* poor sheep.

said painting. jesus christ, that's colorful. 

recently discovered that there are colors out there other than blue, black and grey and have embarked on a torrid love affair with the whole lot of them.

just some studies for a painting and some rather non sensical annotations. i really wouldn't recommend you try reading them since they're only there to make my sketchbook look more intelligent and dupe interviewers into thinking i actually put some thought into this stuff. muahaha.

....and that's that for the time being.

aaaaaaaand more of the same.

thank you graphite for saving so much time!

  hmm. kinda wish i'd done the whole lot of them on the computer looking back on it...

ah, the joys of hindsight!

work stuff! storyboards from the billy the kid biopic that's currently in production... or at least it would be if the swedish government would be kind enough to pay back the studio. 

don't shoot stunt sequences in sweden. it'll only end with you being ripped off.

p.s. check out the multi dimensional floor in this bar! shhhhhoooodddyy!

and while we're on the subject  of antlers...

did you know that the antlers of the giant irish elk were the largest ever recorded? these things could measure up to twelve foot tip to tip. the more you know!

don't balance fragile models on high ledges. bad things will happen.
