Back To The Future

In 1985, two awesome things came into the world. Late in the year a young boy was born, and that boy would then grow up to be the 'man' thats writing this very post.
But earlier in the year Steven Spielberg took a chance on making a film about time travel, through the aid of a DeLorean.
The film of course is Back To The Future, a film by Robert Zemeciks. It, like me, celebrate 25 years so here's my doodle. Great Scot!

Another old picture found in the hundreds and hundreds of photos we have at home. Again, it was my dads keen eye that took this nice little image.

The Low Anthem

Recently after a recommendation from a friend, I've been listening to a nice little album by a band called The Low Anthem. The album is called Oh My God, Charlie Darwin and its pretty cool so I say you guys check it out.
I drew this picture taking the lyrics from one of the songs Ticket Taker. I thought it was a pretty cute line so I thought why not have a shot at making a nice drawing from it, as its been a long time since I did any doodling of late. Good to see I can still do it as I'm happy with the outcome.

Happy 1st Birthday Cale!

My nephew turns 1 at the end of the week. As I have a little collection of Nike's I thought I'd start him off early and get him his first pair for his 1st Birthday, along with the box that I've doodled on so he can keep them as a memory for ever and ever and he'll always know that I'm his favourite uncle!

The Nike's are Air Force 1, even I dont own a pair of those bad boys! But soon enough he'll be a big brother (to little twin girls) in July so he'll look all grown up running around in these.

He's got some catching up to do though if he wants to follow in his uncle's footsteps...and lets face it...their some big footsteps! Photo's of his wearing them to follow :)

Come Together

Well I've been doing these drawings for a while now and built up a large collection so I thought it would be time to see all of the guys (and girl) together as a set.
If anyone would like a print of any of the series I'm looking at selling them so let me know if you're interested in having a limited, hand rendered celeb.

Flight of the Conchords

I recently went to see the Conchords and they were amazing! After loving them for 4 years it was great to finally see them play live and I was not dissapointed!
So to show my love for the Kiwi songsmiths I thought I'd feature them in my ever growing 'Illustrated Celebs' project that keeps growing and growing.

Tilt shift

A cool effect for taking ace pictures. Tilt Shift. Some examples that people have taken are amazing, I however cheated and used Photoshop to make the two above images. Makes it feel like you're a giant looking in on a tiny little world!

Alberg & Austin

Nearly a year ago a close friend of mine set about starting up her own t-shirt company. When asked wether I wanted to be apart of it and do some designs for her I obviously jumped at the chance and said yes.
I submitted my design along with a bucnh of other young designers and the project is finally coming together. The designs are printed and ready to go with the website launch in the next couple of weeks.
As one of the designers I was lucky enough to have my own design sent to me and I can say I'm super happy with the outcome.
My friend has really put alot of work in for this...with a nice little pack thats sent with the tee's that include Alberg & Austin stickers.
Check out the Facebook page here ---> (CLICK)
