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 "...car 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!

As 2017 is the 40th anniversary of something called 'Star Wars' I thought it only fitting that my first post of the year should should pay homage to it's past and present. So here's two of the SW universe's masked men, in an unlikely team-up. This one's for Will, thanks for the inspiration.

'Tis the season (in the UK anyway) for the giving and receiving of Dandy and Beano annuals, so here's my take on the stars of those comics. This was drawn for the birthday of an avid collector a little while ago. Hopefully he gets his 2017 editions in his stocking this Christmas.

It's been eight years since I produced my 'young' Doctor Strange themed illustration. I thought the impending release of the Doctor Strange movie was a good excuse to revisit the character, so here he is, hopefully with a hint of Mr Cumberbatch about him.

A bit of odd synchronicity today. I was looking through my blog post archives only to find a post I'd drafted but never published. It contained this attempt to capture David Cameron doing his 'earnest' face, at about the time he became PM. No sooner had I found it than the BBC news website chirped up with the new he was quitting as an MP. So this seems like possibly the last relevant time to post it. Instead of 'Hello David Cameron PM' it's 'Goodbye David Cameron MP'.

Storyboards for a sequence from Every Quiet Moment (2014). This set of boards starts with the main character Tom mid flashback to a 50s set countryside picnic. We then rejoin the elderly Tom in the story's present, in his flat with his son and grandson.

Above are a few examples of storyboard panels I drew for Matt Davies' short Every Quiet Moment (2014). Alongside, for comparison, are the shots as finally realized onscreen by Matt and Cinematographer Eben Bolter.
