Queen of Hearts


A quick vector drawing I did several years ago. Desipite it’s simplicity (the printing technique that was to be used was somewhat… primitive) I rather like it. Was never used.

I’m old enough that I had Juice Newton going through my head for the couple of days I took to draw this thing out. Sigh.

Vectors 2019


While some of these predate 2019 by quite a bit, I’ve taken the time to post a bunch of simple very graphic illustrations. As a graphic desinger, these type of drawings are my first love. Enjoy!

Jumping Fox



Yes! I found it at LAST!

This fun drawing of a fox pouncing on hidden treasure started off as a traditional pencil sketch that got worked over quite a bit in Photoshop. Enjoy!

Abstracts


I mostly do representational artwork. But my day job as a graphic designer often has be doing lots of patterns, so it is only natural that I at least do a FEW more abstract works. I like to think I keep them fairly approachable. These are a few of my favourites. Prints can be found here.

The Oxfordians


A series of personal drawings I put together featuring cartoon children. I wanted to come up with a process of quickly turning around artwork that would start out as a traditional pencil sketch and then could be quickly finished off digitally. Enjoy!

The Owl and the Pussycat


The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea
In a beautiful pea-green boat,
They took some honey, and plenty of money,
Wrapped up in a five-pound note.
The Owl looked up to the stars above,
And sang to a small guitar,
“O lovely Pussy! O Pussy, my love,
What a beautiful Pussy you are,
You are,
You are!
What a beautiful Pussy you are!”

When I started this one, nmy son had discovered a big book of poems on his bookself and was having me read it to him every night.

I thought some of the poems were a bit too old for him, and some of them somewhat… dated (the book was from my wife when she was a little girl) but he loved them all the same. This was a favourite.

Started off as a traditional pencil sketch and the colour finished off digitally. Enjoy!
