Green Day / Billie Joe Armstrong now on a t-shirt!



My Green Day/Billie-Joe Armstrong caricature painting is now available to buy on a t-shirt - check it out on my RedBubble page here!

You can get it in a huge range of colours, although it's got to be black or red (or maybe olive green), right? :)

Progress on Gwen



Mostly done in these areas now, it's looking ok...

Painting again...



Finally got round to starting my Gwen Stefani large acrylic painting - no idea how this is going to turn out, getting frustrated with the whole painting process at the moment. Will try a small oil painting soon and see if that feels any better. Still, going to push on with this for a few more days and see what happens!

LFCC and other things



Well as Paul Moyse has reported we had a great weekend at the London Film and Comic Con - I sold a fairly respectable number of prints and Paul did a roaring trade of live caricatures (including one of my wife!) and shifted many copies of his excellent book. It was a good learning experience and I know how I'd do things differently next time to potentially sell more. The big original paintings I had got a lot of attention too, so I'll be planning some new ones soon.

I've also just done my first magazine cover for The Skeptic Magazine which will be available in a few weeks (so go and subscribe, and tell them I sent you!) - so I'll being posting it here when it's out. It's a good piece of work I think, the editor Chris French was very impressed so hopefully I'll be doing other things for them in the future. In fact I already am - I'm working on something for their website right now. Exciting stuff!

London Film and Comic Con - 17th-18th July


I'll be showing some of my work at the London Film and Comic Con at Earl's Court 2 in a couple of weeks time - 17th and 18th of July:

This is all thanks to the generosity of fellow caricaturist Paul Moyse who asked if I'd like to share a table with him (is he MAD?). Hopefully my stuff won't look too shoddy next to his awesome paintings!

As it's a film and comic con, I'll be cramming a few suitable paintings in the car and a stack of prints - plenty of Joker, Batman, Hulk, Wolverine, Watchmen and others which should go down well!

Are there any stars attending this convention I hear you ask? Only CAPTAIN FRIGGING KIRK!

See you there!

A short note

Just in case anyone is interested, I have a second blog called A Caricature Of An Atheist on which I will very occasionally (when the mood takes me in other words, which isn't all that often tbh) write down some thoughts on things religion and/or science related. I'm a bit of a science geek and very much a proud atheist and so the collision between science and religion is a subject I enjoy reading about.
