Portfolio Self Portrait

Here is a little self portrait I did for the 'about' page of my online portfolio!

Yes why not commission me, tell your friends, or whisper the url into art director's ears while they sleep!

The Quest


I fancied doing a big watercolour illustration so here it is. It's all about my struggle with RSI and the quest towards creative freedom! And it's always funny whenever you mix dramatic lighting with cartoonish characters.

W is for Robert Wyatt

Once again skipping all the unimportant letters, here is my W Alphaband. Robert Wyatt is an english musician whose music is quite hard to describe. Slightly proggy, a bit jazzy and experimental but also with good melodies and catchy hooks. One of my favourite albums is Rock Bottom which features some great songs and even a cameo from the masterful Ivor Cutler.

S is for Sparks

Yup it's another Alphabands entry. Sparks are Ron & Russell Mael a duo who have encompassed a lot of different styles over the years. This drawing is inspired partly by their big hit This Town Ain't Big Enough For The Both Of Us, although I painted it while listening to The No 1 Song in Heaven lp, which I heartily recommend.

R is for Alasdair Roberts

Another Alphabands entry. Alasdair Roberts is a Scottish Folk musician who sings both traditional songs and his own. I recommend albums like Farewell Sorrow and Spoils, if you love miserable folk & murder ballads like me.

O is for Orchestal Manoeuvres In The Dark


For Alphabands. Yes it's those lads from Liverpool who shook the world! OMD are a synthpop band from the 80s who managed to make incredibly catchy pop songs with synthesizers while still keeping a bit of cold Kraftwerkyness about them.
