One Good Atom is a charity project. Once every few months a guest artist will be chosen to create a set of limited edition tshirts and/or prints, with all profits being donated to the charity of their choice. The first run is designed by me, with the cash going to the UK mental health charity Mind in support of those suffering from depression.
It’s not going to change the world, but it’s One Good Atom.
I got asked to design the cover for Eightball Voodoo’s single, Blaydon Races. They’re a classic sleaze rock n roll band and wanted something appropriately rawkin’. I don’t usually use this kind of imagery in my own stuff any more so it was fun to break it all out again for a commission.
The couple I recently designed wedding invites for also asked me to make a Save the Date animation. I had no idea what this was. I foolishly agreed.
What kind of obnoxious freakshow would approve this as their wedding date video? You be the judge.
Romance is in the air… apparently I’m at that age where everyone is suddenly getting married. This time round I got asked to make a wedding present from the groom to the bride. It’s a comic that tells the story of his proposal, which involved him secretly setting up a romantic (and, by the sounds of things, hectic) treasure hunt around Glasgow for her, with the proposal at the end. All together now: awwww.
Congratulations Kieran & Laura! x
A couple of freaks I can’t shake off decided to celebrate their disgusting mutual lust by getting married. They asked me to design their wedding invitations, and to keep them sweet (in case they’re in a position to be useful to me one day), I said yes. Then, as a wedding present, I got the invites printed up as posters so that the couple can gaze at them daily and be reminded of my total superiority over them forever.
AKA, congratulations Graeme & Eli! xx
A new Lusi Sulfura pinup I did over the weekend. This started as a doodle and but I decided to finish it off, mainly to try out my sexy new Wacom tablet, which is the best thing since… well… um… look, it’s just pretty sweet.
Roll up roll up! Test your crustacean accuracy at Oscar’s Lobster Mania…
Building games is such a collaborative effort that it’s difficult to separate out any one person’s contribution, but I think it’s fair to say that I was responsible for most of the visual design of the game (again with huge input from my creative and artistic directors). I also built most of the geometry, with the exception of Oscar’s fantastically disturbing head and the lobsters, which were built by my much more talented and experienced colleagues. I also made the fake backstory artwork, which was good fun.
I think this is the first game I’ve been involved in that actually looks like something I would draw. Really happy with it.
