Here are two ideas I had for book cover designs, I tried to keep them minimal, as book covers generally are...... I'm not sure if I succeeded with that, but on the upside I am happy with how they turned out.

I'm working on new pieces for the portfolio at the moment, I'm glad to be indoors since it's pouring with rain outside, I'm enjoying a nice cup of tea and Pride and Prejudice on blu ray. Who knew Colin Firth could look even better in HD? Amazing.

More New Work

Well, I think I have let this blog slide yet again. So I thought it was about time for an update. First up is an illustration that was commissioned by The Lonely Planet Travel Magazine.

For this illustration I was asked to create an image that would represent an open travel journal, the image is used along side Dan Cruickshank's regular column. Each month he writes about where he has been, and provides photographs of his travels. The photographs are placed over the image to create the look of a journal/photo album.

This next illustration was commissioned by the Radio Times.

I was asked to illustrate for one of the radio choices. It was a play called 'Winter Storm' The play is about a young poet who becomes lost in a snow storm, while waiting for an important telephone call. I really enjoyed working on this image as it gave me the opportunity to paint, I have been working mostly in Photoshop lately so this was definitely a nice change.

New Work

I have a couple of updates today, Firstly I think it is okay for me to post this now, here is my image for the Sunday Times Travel Magazine. I was really happy with how it turned out, plus I got to use stamps, which is always a bonus.

I have also updated my website, it has a new layout and a couple of new images.

The first is an image about weight loss, and reaching a target weight. It's a pretty simple image, and didn't take very long to do. I have been trying to simplify things a little bit so it worked out well enough.

This next image is about the police trying to get rid of Internet knife gangs, it's mostly aimed at facebook and users who have pictures showing themselves with knives.

Travel Smart Illustration.

I was recently commissioned by the Sunday Times Travel magazine to illustrate an article about the best way to protect ourselves against malaria when traveling abroad. I have just got an advanced copy of the printed magazine as shown in the above photograph. I even got to use some of my stamps!

Medical students get ipod Teachers

This is an illustration based on an article I read about the university of Derby. They are giving their medical students an ipod each, and it is loaded with demonstrations and tutorials on things like the correct way to X ray people. They have to give it back at the end of the course but I think it's a great idea if people actually use it for that purpose.
