I will be selling prints and postcards of my work along with some new plush toys and a few other new things at OZ ComicCon Melbourne this weekend June 11th & 12th, 2016!

This will be my first time exhibiting at a OZ ComicCon event and it looks like it is going to be HUGE!

You can find me and my work at table 28 in the Artist Alley by the entrance near Stage 3.

 


Rocky Horror Life Drawing

Earlier this month Covert Characters  had a Rocky Horror themed life drawing night with our very own fabulous Frank N Furter striking beautiful poses.

The very talented Hamish immediately dazzled us with a song and stayed in character for the whole session!


Jack of Hearts – The Gamblers

JackHearts_08

Jannkin Hearts – Baron Heart’s younger brother and considered possibly even more dangerous then the King. Fanatically devoted to Law, he hopes to rid himself of all emotion and find Pure Truth by practising the ancient rituals of Order.

The Jack of Hearts completes the House of Hearts in my series called The Gamblers –   characters and stories from which I’m building my own deck of playing cards.

I’m looking into starting a Patreon to help fund finishing off the remaining designs and go towards get the completed deck printed. I would like to share the preliminary sketches, more of background story and offer a limited number of commissions.

 

The Gamblers - Character Concepts : The Deck so far...

Samus Aran – Art Nouveau

Samus Aran - Art Nouveau

Samus Aran in the Art Nouveau style new print design.  I will have prints of her and my other designs for sale at this years events and online.

I never really got to play video games much as a kid but when I got to play Smash Bros. at friends’ houses I always chose Samus. It was years later I found out that she wasn’t a robot and there was a person inside!


Art Deco – Poison Ivy

Art Deco - Poison Ivy

Art Deco – Poison Ivy to finish off my Art Deco DC set.  I had the idea for an art deco rose bud shawl for months and I finally was able to realise it for Ivy’s dress.

All 3 prints will for sale along with one more new design I will reveal later this week.

 


Art Deco – Catwoman

Continuing my Art Deco DC character redesigns with Catwoman. Inspired by the elegant concepts of Erté, the prolific 20th-century artist and designer, I started re imaging the already heavily art deco Batman: The Animated Series characters into fashion illustrations.

Her hat is based on a genuine 1920’s McCall’s sewing pattern with slight modifications.

I will be selling Art Deco Catwoman and Harley Quinn prints at events this year.

More Drawings in 2016

The end of last year I was busily making plush toys for Christmas orders and working on on going freelance jobs. Without much of a break from work 2015 blended right into the start of 2016. And I’m happy about that – there was no creative lull or loss of momentum. At the start of January I made a list of priorities to tackle this year. I do this every year but this years list is far more focused thanks to the excellent advice from this article.

I also involved in a fantastic online course for Art Business – which is turning out to be just the help I need and filled with a wonderful group of artist.

One fairly important priority for 2016 for me is to do more traditional work. Digital has so many positives but I truly love working in pencil, ink and watercolor.  I convinced myself that digital was fast, easier (as in no set up/clean up, my computer and tablet are always right there waiting), less stressful (unlimited undos). But in actual fact tradition is more natural to me (its what I’ve done from the very beginning), therefore its faster and less stressful then working on a computer! And not having undo makes the work better – if I really mess up I start again from scratch and the piece is always better for having done it twice.

So with that in mind I bought some new paper and started drawing in ink again the quiet time over Christmas/New Years. Slightly missing white Christmases inspired this pin up girl.


Rhea of Brisis – Confrontation Miniature Concept

I’m very proud to announce my first character concept to be released as a miniature!  The projected headed by Kevin Goh was to create a re-imagined, limited run miniature of Rhea of Brisis, Matriarch of House Brisis, from the Limbo of Acheron from the discontinued but still loved Rackham Confrontation tabletop game.

My concept (black & white only) was translated into a sculpt by Lee Jae Chi of Zealot Miniatures. The finished product is made of resin and stands roughly 32mm high. Only 100 were produced and sadly with the master sculpt damaged by the casting no others will be made.

I decided to quickly add some color to my original concept to work out how I would go about painting her as a miniature. I would also like to make her a custom base like the one in the concept. I hope to have time to paint her soon and I really look forward to seeing how other people interpret the design!
