Cephalopods

OctopusI’ve have been working on a fun new project and collaboration with an animator and writer. The story is about four characters, sea creatures, Cephalopods. Nautilus, Cuttlefish, Octopus and Squid. Each have a very different characters, from Wise to Aggressive, another sweet and the other mysterious. The story and characters are taking shape. As well as an animation I think the story would also lend itself well to a childrens book! I hope the characters and personalities (animalities) clearly match?

Just on for one night and especially fun as we will soon be leaving Peckham and the Bussey building and moving to a new studio in Bermondsey. So it’s a leaving party too.. Farewell Bussey! Pls come down and take a look! (Below is a small detail of a new illustration I did for the show, of Shad Thames and its Dickensian past)

Architecture; Shad Thames / Southbank

architecture8_web architecture11_webarchitecture7_web architecture10_web architecture1_web architecture6_webarchitecture12_webThis is a new series of pencil drawings. I have used the Shad Thames, Tower Bridge and the view over to Broadgate as the inspiration. Contrasting the old and new and transitional architecture there. I’ve also started to draw from location (life), outside in the elements, which has been a new challenge. The Bottom drawing is actually the Camera Building in Oxford. I’ll continue to develop this series, possibly into print and hopefully exhibit the drawings soon!

Illustrations for ‘Love Bites’, short stories by Cliff McNish

Love_Bites_Elderly

Children’s author Cliff McNish, is an established and successful writer of books for young adults and children. He specialises in horror, with sometimes bizarre, intense themes, here is his website: www.cliffmcnish.com . I met him and having read some of his new scripts on relationships, emotions within them and the complications and different dynamics. For example an elderly couple who live in a world of routine, when confronted by an impulsive change of heart- to opt not to have a biscuit with an evening tea, the result is amazement and incomprehension. Another sketch features a sick man on the couch who uses the situation to effectively test his partners sympathies and patience, having her wait on him, changing TV channels, fetch biscuits and blankets, without him lifting a finger. I’m looking forward to developing the illustrations further and possibly use animation to tell the whole story.young_sofa_couple4
