Malcolm McLaren Illustration for AU, Live Painting at St. Pancras

I just finished this illustration of the late Malcolm McLaren for the next issue of the Irish music, lifestyle, and culture publication, AU Magazine. 'Twas good fun. Click to see a larger version.
I also did a live painting session in front of about a trillion paparazzi cameras this morning at St. Pancras station in London for a Eurostar event welcoming Jarvis Cocker as their new cultural ambassador. That was interesting! Will hopefully be able to post some photos and links to coverage of that soon.

Economic Recovery Illustration

An illustration I completed today to be featured in an upcoming issue of The Guardian in the Lysondown Health and Safety supplement for an article about the slippery slope up to economic recovery. Thanks to lovely Alex Trimble, as ever, for being a patient posing boyfriend and pretending to climb a chair for a rather long time for my reference benefit. Sorry I didn't keep the graphman ginger.

The Politician's Progress, Images 7-8

Here are the final two illustrations from my eight-piece series about political corruption, "The Politician's Progress." The top one is the seventh image, and the bottom one is the eighth, and final image in the series. To see the first six, scroll down about five seconds and when you see six similar-looking pictures to these two, you will have gone to the right place! Click to see larger versions.

The Accidental Creation, Images 1-4

What if the creation of the universe was all a big accident? Taking some biblical inspiration for this one, I have been working on a series of seven images depicting the creation story... but rather than some great, omniscient, powerful god, the god in my story falls more on the clumsy, daft end of the spectrum. This series shows creation as if it was all due to a set of mishaps onset by god's mistakes. Here are images one through four, portraying the first four days. On the first day, god accidentally falls asleep with his cigarette, causing a fire which becomes the sun. On the second day, god sits atop his new sun and has a good old jolly time with his wine, when he accidentally spills it, thus creating the seas. On the third day, god attempts to cook a stir-fry, which results in him spilling it everywhere, which creates the trees, shrubs, and plant life. On the fourth day, he gets a cold of epic proportions, and accidentally sneezes out the cosmos, creating the stars and planets. Click the images to see larger versions.
