I have had the unfortunate experience of tearing some ligaments in my ankle this month so I haven't been able to sit properly at my desk for fear that my foot will swell up like a melon. Luckily Skyrim came out and that has entertained me for the last couple of weeks.
I wanted to try out a new program called Paint Tool Sai so I developed a sketch from my sketchbook. If you haven't played Skyrim you probably wont get this....oh well:
And here is my progress:

I have been ridiculously busy hence why I have neglected this blog quite at bit.
Here are some scribbles that I did a little while ago. I became obsessed with Game of Thrones after I saw the show. These are some some fun drawings of some of the characters that I did in my spare time. Heaps of fun!!
Also, Check out Chris Voigts new film, Great Destiny Man 2! James Paterson did some great credit illustrations and I did the voice of Gendo.. the berry fiend.
While you are there check out all of Chris's Films- Hours of laughs and entertainment!
A quick one tonight. I went to Supanova in Sydney last weekend. I love all the people who dress up! They really make the event fun. I especially love the people who dress up in really dodgey costumes :).
Plump Mondays are back! I am 3 weeks late but it has been a busy time. I went down to Adelaide to go Austrailias first concept design workshop : http://cdwa2011.com/ My Friend Simon Scales organised it and he and his wife Shelley did an amazing job putting it together. It really changed my outlook on art and I know it changed the life's of many people who attended. Also, I have just finished up on one job and have obtained another. Busy man!
If I have time I will try and do some catch-up Plumpness.
Hey Guys, I am writing and doing the art for a web comic. I was asked to do a little story for the guys at Space Pyrates. Check out the link to see the first page. Also, click the first button and check out the rest if you want a good laugh :).
So on the weekend I manned a table at the local comic convention (Supanova) here in Brisbane, showing my folio, selling my book and some prints. Its was a fun couple of days meeting people and showing my work. I had a blast seeing how people reacted to my folio(my pug and my ewok were especially popular).
A big thank you to all the people who came over and enjoyed my art, a bigger thank you to the people who bought my book or bought a print. But the BIGGEST thank you goes to my friend Lach who let me share his table and if it wasn't for him, none of it would have happened!
Both days were very busy but when I wasn't talking to people I was able to do a few sketches seen here, but nothing like what Lach was able to do. Wow! I really hope he post his sketches from the day on his blog. Every time I turned around there was another massive drawing of something mind-blowing.
Overall, I am so glad that I did this. I feel like I have been living in a little bubble with my art for so long, only showing it to family, friends and co-workers and it was incredibly inspiring to see how people react to my work having never seen it before. I even made a little money which is always nice :). It looks like I'll be heading down the the Sydney Supanova as well!
So, I'm going to be at Supanova this weekend selling my book and showing off some art. Here is a little promo image that I just did to display with my book. If you are going to be there come over and say hi!
This is exciting!! I have complied all of my Violent Friday drawings into a book. I will be selling the book at the Supanova convention here in Brisbane and also online at Blurb.com. The book features all the Violent Friday's seen here plus 15 pages of new violence and sketches from where it all began! The book is only 10 bucks! That's what I call money well spent!!
