Art Deco in the Sun



This is an example of my illustration work. This time a vector image that I think plays particularly well with bright art deco imaging.

Mr Roggoo



The President of the IOC Jacques Rogge tells us the Chinese have delivered everything the IOC could want in the Beijing Olympics. So the promise to hold the Chinese government to account on human rights issues has just been forgotten has it Mr Rogge? Personally I think he should have spent less time criticising Usain Bolt’s celebrations and more time concentrating on what he had promised the world he would do. So it seemed very fitting for me to draw him with reference to that other famous mypoic character Mr Magoo.

Capello - Another Flash in the Pan


It looks like another false dawn for England fans. Have we really lost so much ground on the rest of the world that we cannot find 11 decent players to pull on the shirt or are they just over-paid primadonnas who couldn’t care less because they know win lose or draw for their country they’ll still get their huge paychecks from their clubs at the end of it. Or is it that the creation of the Premiership and the lure of big money to the foreign players has meant we no longer bring home-grown talent through. All I know for sure is that I haven’t seen a half decent England team play since they demolished the Dutch in Euro ‘96 and we’ll be lucky to qualify for the World Cup let alone do anything if we get there.

Amy Winehouse


Amy Winehouse is a great talent. Here's hoping she's around for a long time.

I tried a different approach for this one - keeping it simple in a kind of updating of the Aubrey Beardlsey style/tattoo, which I think suits Amy's bohemian attitude.
