Papas Train CD Cover Artwork

From the number of spam comments I’ve just had to delete I’ve clearly been letting things slide here so here is a quick catch up…

heres a couple of CDs which arrived in the post last week which I was lucky enough to be asked to illustrate the cover artwork for.

The illustrations been lurking in the portfolio for a while now but the CDs has only just been released. Lovely people to work for and please do go check out their website.

Roadside Illustration

a couple of years ago I helped a friend of a friend get a website up and running for his clothing printing business. He offered several times to print something up for me but I couldn’t decide what. Two or so years on and another reminder has lead to this…

Illustration for T-shirt

I’m quite happy with it, I’d probably like to do another draft and tidy up some of the parts I’m not completely happy with but then I always seem to want to do another draft to tidy up a couple of things. I’m looking forward to seeing it on a shirt.

Also last month produced a CD cover illustration but I’m not sure I can talk about that yet so I won’t…

November already? It’ll soon be Christmas…

No-one is more surprised than me to walk past the towns carpet shop and see the large poster in their window announcing boldly “6 CARPET FITTING WEEKS TILL XMAS”

But I’ve checked the calendar and they seem to be right so (Christmas commercialist tone switch warning) if you are stuck with that one gift for that one awkward person who seems to have everything how about a paperback copy of “Christmas Movies, Reviewed” from S C Lee. Its available in paperback from the UK and in the US and also as an ebook. The attentive ones amongst you may have recognised that name and may have guessed that yours truly did the cover for this, and you’d be right too.

Its not the kind of subject matter I generally tend to be asked to do, well apart from the odd Christmas card, oh and those festive cards for The Red Knob a few years back, so it was a pleasure to get to have a go at something like this and to have it turn out quite well.

As ever you can read more about the book on the S C Lee online website.

recently I completed this for an upcoming book title. The books currently in limbo so I’ve been given the okay to post the artwork prior to its release, I won’t give away the title just in case. Anyway, here it is…

I actually completed this a couple of months ago but Steven aked me to delay posting it untill a date long since past, as such its ended up in my drafts folder with a dozen other half written posts. So now at least theres one less in there.

I was quite pleased how this one turned out, sometimes less is more. That said I really much get some of these posts finished.

More details on the novel as they develop on the authors website*.

*Update. Buy The Girl who flirted with Death here

The Waiting Room

i‘ve spent a fair bit of time waiting in various doctors and hospital waiting rooms over the past six months so it was easy to get into the mood of this new cover illustration for S. C. Lees short story ‘The Waiting Room.’
