BP Oil Spill

A couple of ideas for a project on the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Recently, most images of the local beaches are of people wearing masks because of the fumes from the burning oil and the smell of not only the water butn the animals being washed up too. So I thought of children playing on or near the beach with their masks.

Blue Planet

I've suddenly really got into watching 'Blue Planet' and stuff like that, and I've started to draw some quick stuff while I'm watching it practicing getting the shape and form right etc. I think this may become a big part of my most recent project 'Use your brain' in which I'm focussing on the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. And there's also drawings of children diving (thats obviously not from Blue Planet, just an interesting photograph from the newspaper).

'The Tiger's Bride'

These are from a narrative project in which I illustrated Angela Carter's short story, 'The Tiger's Bride'. They were create with ink and bleach.

'When The Levee Breaks'

A few images from a book project in which I focussed on the Led Zeppelin song 'When The Levee Breaks'. I focussed more on creating an atmosphere of the 'Deep South' for the lyrics rather than to directly illustrate what the words were saying. To create these I used a surface of old, found book pages, coffee, ink and bleach. The images are pencil drawn, and further detailed in ink.
