This week I've been inking and colouring up the last few illustrations for a German English language book for the fantastic German publisher Hueber this has been ongoing since mid January and has been a lot of fun to work on. http://www.hueber.de/
Every so often Ask Magazine, gets in touch and asks me to illustrate one of their articles, the most recent one was on the theme of Galileo. I had to draw Galileo up a tower in an Italian city of the 16th century performing one of his gravity experiments . As ever it was a joy to work on as they Ask always want me to interject humor into the images, so it's loads of fun to work on.
I have now completed a series of 16 animations for Island Bakery's new website.
This was a total joy to work on as I started my career as an animator who moved into illustration. But over the last few years I have been slowly asked for animations for the internet. The animations for Island Bakery were so much fun to work on as it meant being able to bring to life the illustrations I produced for their new biscuit packets. I animated dogs scottish dancing and dolphins leaping out of the top menu bar, a helicopter flying over the company logo and many others animations as well. http://goo.gl/YNH3tz
I was commissioned by Ink Robin to produce drawings for a pitch for a possible future interactive ibook. As ever working with them is fun and it's always fun to get them to laugh at the drawings I sent them. http://www.inkrobin.com/
A quick illustration for Breaks foods this month, a new image for their staff website, in the style of a set of illustrations that I'd worked on last year, it's a nice style to work in with a limited pallet and a hint of 50's illustration style to it.
All gone Ceramics
Lately I have been working on a new series of lino prints to be used as plate designs by the very talented and busy Marit Ammerud. It's been great to have an excuse to make lino prints again as I produced my first ever illustrations in lino for the Scotsman newspaper many years ago. Lino also looks so right on plates so I'm very excited to see how they come out. I've made three linos so far but there's more to come. http://allgoneceramics.com/home.html
