Inked up

A while back I wrote about a design I submitted for a fan art competition - a series of portraits of the original 80s transformers. Well, it didn't win, and some of the designs in there were just amazing. But I was still pleased with my effort. A few friends on Facebook expressed their desire to have the design on a T shirt so I duly obliged. Here is the finished result. I am going to put this in my Etsy shop at some point.

For those of you in the UK and curious, I used Total Clothing. There was a screen print charge of £20 and each subsequent T shirt cost £5, so pretty reasonable. Its made me want to do more designs in this style (I will add it to my growing pile of unfinished or not-yet-started projects), maybe a Tardis, as the new Doctor is now gracing our screens?

I also completed a comic, Two for Joy, though I am not quite happy with it yet. I have found this project really daunting - getting the pacing right for a little graphic story is hard, and I always think my artwork could be better. But at least I finished it!

And finally, remember this illustration I did of Dirk and Christopher?

They are characters from a book series called Dark Lord by Jamie Thomson, I just love them. I recently found out a third book has been released so I must get my hands on that. I can't get these characters out of my head. I think I should expand them some more!
