Now that the surprise has been revealed I can share this ‘blind commission’! I was given the choice of 3 characters and asked to not share anything about this commission until the client received it so they could be completely surprised! I had never seen the movie and borrowed the dvd to check that my online research was good before doing the final inking. What a crazy film!
The final scan of my Angela Art Nouveau poster commission. Copic Multiliners and ink wash on Bristol board. I’m really pleased with how this piece came out! I am still taking a few more more commissions like this. If you’re interested contact me for more details 🙂
Dejah Thoris Art Nouveau style commission finished. I got carried away designing her jewellery. I really wanted it to look uniquely alien but also a plausible design.

A commission from several months ago for a local collector who now has 2 of my favourite drawings. The Art Nouveau Death and now this Zatanna are his. I love being asked to interpret these characters and really design the whole page.
The original pieces are drawn directly into his designated character commission sketchbooks. These books are fill with great sketches from artist from around the world. Truly a treasure.

I was recently commissioned to illustrate a D&D group as a gift for their DM. They are playing in a Japanese and Chinese inspired fantasy setting which made designing their costumes and armour so much fun. I loved capturing the details and personalities of each of the players’ characters.

Something a bit different – Japanese woodblock print style 300ZX Fairlady I painted as a birthday present for a friend based on his own beautifully restored and lovingly converted street/racer Nissan.
The scene is on “Benkei Bridge” looking towards a modern Tokyo.
Tarzan – strong and wary. He is at one with the jungle.

I wanted to capture the feel of old 3 color printed bookcovers using only yellow, green and black to build the image. I completely redrew the line work 4 times before I was happy with it.
Raiders of the Lost Ark is one of my favourite movies. It has everything that makes a great story. And the cinematography is masterful.
Has Harrison Ford always been a cool grumpy old man?
A sketch to celebrate Superman’s 80th anniversary issue #1000 which I never posted. Jubilant and full of justice.
