A couple of weekends ago I made a few studies of a local Iron Age reenactment museum.  From these, I thought I'd take the time to put together a more in depth study of an Iron Age settlement.

This time I thought I'd post some character designs from a past animation.  The story was loosely based around extracts from several of Viking Sagas.

All's quiet on the Eastern Front ... too quiet

Another revisit to old project!  I'd previously worked on some character designs and thought I'd take the chance to look at some of the locations.  As well as testing out some new techniques.

I recently had the opportunity to exhibit my work in both Pinewood and Shepperton Studios - I'm hugely grateful to all involved in the setting up of the exhibition, thanks for a great two days.

A quick visual from a short SFX/VFX promo - the concept - floating drilling platforms over a Sahara-like desert.

Just revisiting some work from an old project, a 17th Century Dutch Port, the original design looked a little bare and simplistic, so I took the time to have a crack at a new visual with a bit more atmosphere.

So it's been a while since my last blog, so I thought I'd upload a little something I was working on the other day.

To start to this blog, it's probably suitable I begin with some work that demonstrate my skills.  

The two visuals above, were from a recent project, set in Bavaria during the 1940s.

The plan is to keep this blog up to date with my more recent work, but in the meantime if you want to check out more of my artwork head over to my main website linked on the blog.
