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.

Christmas Movies, Reviewed

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…

More artwork related posts soon I hope.

The Girl who flirted with Death

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*.

The Edward Francis Blogs

apologies for the lack of recent noise on here, 2011 hasn’t been particularly kind in one way and another so far but it has brought a couple of rather nice illustration jobs. Firstly there is this recent book cover for S. C. Lee and his book Alana Rose: the Edward Francis Blogs. The author had a good idea of the overall composition required which made my job a little easier and it all turned out rather well.

The story goes something like this;

This year the geek shall inherit the Earth…literally. Edward Francis is an eighteen year old, part-time, video shop employee with far-fetched dreams of becoming a famous film director. He’s shy (especially around women) misunderstood and friendless, yep, the poor guy just can’t seem to get a break, whether he’s trying to meet his favourite actress Alana Rose (who he fantasises about dating) or attempting to get the local Goth girl to notice him. One thing’s for sure, it won’t be an easy ride for your new favourite blogger. Written in the first person in the form of an online journal, Alana Rose: the Edward Francis Blogs is the journey of a British teenager, growing up in a society that he’d rather forget.

Alana Rose: the Edward Francis Blogs for the Kindle
The book is currently available to buy for the Kindle at Amazon here.

Sex In Gloucester…

“is a new website for people in Gloucestershire – or who may be visiting Gloucestershire, in search of sex” to quote the tag line.

I helped to create the website on this one as well as illustrating the characters of ‘the Doc’ and ‘PC Plod’. The sites name, and so the rather salacious post title, are best explained on the Sex In Glos website itself;

If you’re involved in any of the following – dogging, swinging, working as a sex worker, you’re a sex worker’s client, or if you’re a man looking for sex with other men – especially sex in public places, then this website is for you!

Sex may be fun – but hey it’s not without its dangers! Assaults on sex workers and people who have sex in public places are not uncommon, and there are also those cursed STIs. Whether it’s a warning about ‘dodgy’ punters, or a Syphilis outbreak, you’ll find news, views and alerts about how to avoid the pitfalls, and how to get help if you don’t.

Visit Sex In Glocester here – Site no longer online.

I’m now going to sit back and worry about what kind of spam this post will lead to.

The Red Knob 2.0

very pleased to have had a rather large part, if I do say so myself, in the design and creation of the The Red Knob website, version 2.0.

The Red Knob Website

The Red Knob is a limited company offering Sexual Health Education, Resources and Training, who I’ve been fortunate enough to create several illustrations, a couple of comic strips and the all new, all singing and all dancing website.
