BBC Science Rocks!

This design idea arose when I was trying to think of something to pay my own small tribute to the great science programmes being put out by the BBC. Series after series of amazing stuff; Frozen Planet, Wonders of the Universe, Cell, The Story of Electricity, The Human Body, Are We Still Evolving?, The Story of Maths and of course The Sky At Night (and that's just to name a few). There are many other BBC science presenters I couldn't fit it also. You can buy the t-shirt here. Let's go to work ;)

Commissions and feedback

It's always great to get feedback from customers on my gift caricatures, especially when it's from someone for whom it was a present or surprise gift. This one is a corker:
Good morning Neil, For my Christmas present this year my girlfriend commisioned yourself to complete a caricature of me and my stock car and this is just a quick email to say what an amazingly awesome job you did!! I was shocked and stunned by what my girlfriend had managed to find and the work you did was truly amazing, the detail of the car is just immense and so accurate its untrue! To say I was and still am impressed is possibly the biggest understatement ever!
Below is the caricature, which was a really fun one to do and I was pretty happy with the look when I finished it. It looks even better now the customer has framed it!
And here are a few other recent jobs that were good fun to do:
Oh, and Happy New Year! Here's hoping 2012 is a cracker for all of us.
