Faces exhibition

I have recently started a masters degree (part time) at Camberwell College of Arts. This work was part of a show based on facial expressions, the larger work was on the theme generic. I will scan in a selection of the faces soon.

Lobstering about

One of my friends ate a lobster for her birthday and I started drawing them to make her feel guilty. Not that i'm a vegetarian, although I am often mistaken for one. So now it has turned into a big project, this is one of the first images before and after cooking. Also, you may notice that these are the same three ladies as in the cake pops illustration. They were intended for the lobsters, the other just happened to crop up in between. I don't know which look they suit more. Though I do like that underneath the lobster suits they have a body and are not just a floating head!

work in progress: don't swing a cat in a glass house

I am doing a guide for people who live in glass houses: what not to do. This is the start of one piece: people who live in glass houses shouldn't swing a cat. It will look alot different when completed. I enjoy the cat's pose.

drawings for the evil cat

These are some drawings i've been doing for the story about the evil cat. I have started scratching them also, but I quite like these drawings. Though the scratching normally gives the work a darker quality

my evil cat is trying to kill me!

I've been drawing this cat alot lately, the ladies in particular seem to have taken a liking to him. For a while I didn't know what I was going to do with him, though it was pretty clear his intentions were evil. I had an idea that he would start off with no eyes, and when these women took him in he would bite them and gain their eyes. He will of course take 9 pairs of eyes. I realised that i'd been channelling Al Green's song 'the snake' which is on one of my playlists. The plot is basically the same with women feeling sorry for an injured snake, so take him into their home and then it bites them. I hope to do some sort of an animation and series of drawings on this theme.
