This concept art is copied from other artists. These were photoshop exercises for me to get into drawing concept art. Sometimes by copying work you can learn new techniques and things you may have over looked. I mainly draw with an animation style, so this helps me to branch out and take on another method.

This is a character concept for a children's book. I'll be working with a writer and coming up with the proper layout and over all design and feel of the book. So hopefully we'll be able to show some more stuff very soon, and possibly start on a few more book ideas in the next few years.

Another tshirt contest , another tshirt design, another waste of time.

The winner of the latest contest will win 15,000 euros. The process for entering is you design, you submit your work and then it gets placed in a voting area where the public can vote, the design with the most votes and feed back, wins. I cant even make the voting stage which leaves me to believe these contests are regulated or controlled to keep with company "standards".

This was designed for another t-shirt contest at "Vinyl kills mp3" was the theme. Your comments are more than welcome. For some reason this design was not selected or excepted into the voting area which has got me baffled. I would love to know why this image wont work as a t-shirt design? Any silk screening pros out there?

A process image from concept black & white to digital colour clean up in CS3. It took a few hours to get this put together, but it was fun. I got a lot on the go these days with odd jobs here and there, and cant wait to get into this 2009 fishing year. I guess a dream design job for me would be designing fishing lures for Strike King or Rapala, then testing them out...maybe one day?

Thanks for the kind words guys! This is a t-shirt vector design, for an online design comp... not sure which color to go with, it will be printed on a heather grey t-shirt? I liked Blue then Red, others said Yellow I'm starting to lean towards Yellow. April 6th is the deadline, for the BSV "re-animation" themed competition at check it out.
