This is a commission I did for my beautiful friend Sarah. She has the most gorgeous porcelain skin, and quirky purple hair, and has agreed to let me paint her again (YAY!). She makes a fantastic leading lady. Sam's hair was great to paint. I love painting guys with lots of hair, you can achieve so much expression with each stroke of the brush.

This little scene is a commission I've recently done for a lovely friend, it's a picture of himself with his brother and sister. They were an absolute joy to paint, they have the most lovely faces, beautiful family. I used the opportunity to experiment with a much warmer pallet to what i've been using recently, I wanted the picture to almost have a glow about it. I wanted the birds to reflect the characters.

This is the first of a series of illustrations I'm creating, inspired by the lovely British seaside. I adore the kitsch, old fashioned, quirkiness of the seaside, it's wonderful to draw. Coming from a seaside town, I have a special appreciation for cute little beach huts, stripy, flimsy wind guards, and teeth rotting sticks of rock. Anyone thats adventured to the seaside, bought themselves a tray of traditional fish and chips, will understand this illustration. You're guaranteed to have an audience of seagulls waiting for the moment one of those delicious golden chips, slips from your fork, and hits the floor...
