I recently received my copy of the book 'Poking a Dead Frog: Conversations With Today's Top Comedy Writers' by Mike Sacks, with a bunch of my illustrations in it. So great to see it in print after working on it on and off for almost a year! Big thanks to Mike for the collaboration.
It's a lot easier for me to update my website these days so I'm kind of neglecting this blog a bit.
As there's not much point posting exactly the same pictures on here as I do on my website, I'm going to make this more of a 'work in progress' blog.
Here's a little editorial illustration for The Debrief. It goes along side a piece of writing about one girls train of thought whilst waiting in a family planning clinic. Its slightly more light hearted than it sounds..
I've been working on a number of portraits to go along side interviews with American comedy writers for a book. Some of them are pretty big names. So far I've drawn Mel Brooks, Dan Clowes, the brothers who wrote the TV show 'Cheers', Carol Kolb who's one of the main writers at The Onion news, amongst others. Still a bunch more to come.
Here's a few to give you an idea..
This will be the sequel to Mike Sack's previous book of the same name.
Whilst googling myself (...I don't do this that often, promise) I found this collection of samples from my recent work on someone's blog. It made me realise that I have actually been using quite a lot more colour this year, both paint and digital.
