2001 - 2 in 1

With the year racing towards it's close, I've been thinking of the various pop culture anniversaries that came and went this year. First up is Stanley Kubrick's 2001 - A Space Odyssey, which turned 50 in 2018! It's ageing pretty well I'd say. Here's some fan art for it, where the viewer gets to choose the orientation.

Witch attack concepts

Another couple of pieces related to the Witch Pitch character designs in the previous post. The above were initial sketches for concept art showing the coven attacking a music festival . We see them circling the festival site from above then getting stuck into the festival goers. Seems I couldn't pass up a chance to throw a dash of red in there just to highlight the evisceration and decapitation in the background. The whole idea of 'Witches go to music festival - chaos ensues' was the brainchild of Chris Hayward and Nat Saunders.

Unholy Trinity

Something for Halloween. Sort of inspired by Stephen King's musings in Danse Macabre on the progenitors of modern horror - Dracula, Frankenstein, and The Strange case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.

Blue Door - Horror Short

Anyone out there able to help this very creepy short Horror film onto screens? I did some initial concept sketches (above) for the writers last year, and now I really want to see the finished thing. Filming is completed with Gemma Whelan (Game of Thrones, Moorside) in the lead, but a little extra money is needed for post production. If you think you can help please visit their kickstarter page.

The Grand Tour

Initial sketches I worked on last year for the planning of a worldwide PR stunt for Amazon Prime's motoring show The Grand Tour. It was fun to work on and was supposed to be light-hearted, but some didn't see the funny side, as this Guardian article makes clear. In hindsight they probably have a point, car crashes aren't that much fun in real life.

I like the article's quote from Gary Rae, from road safety charity Brake " worship is dated and misplaced." I wish I could get my four year old son to agree with that... we might be able able to curb his addiction to Hot Wheels cars!
