"I'm not f**king Justin Beiber you motherf**kers!" - Billie Joe painting finished!

All done finally with this painting now, very happy with how it turned out. First off, this is entirely inspired by Sebastian Kruger, unashamedly so - the guy always has been an inspiration to my work, and always sets the standard that (in my dreams) I want to achieve. In doing this, I've roughly followed the steps he takes in the hope of learning something. I think I have, and I started to get an idea of techniques I might want to pursue in searching for my own style.

Here is a sequence of pics showing pretty much the whole thing start to finish:

This one show a couple of detail areas at the early block in stage and at the finished stage:

And here's a couple of me with the painting - it's a good size!

Oh, and the post title - Google it and you'll find Billie Joe doing a proper rockstar rant on stage and I just had to use that line for the title of the painting ;)

Black & white illustration

Here's a couple of pen & ink style caricature illustrations I did recently for a job, it was nice to do some work in this style for a change.

Prof. Daniel C. Dennett for The Skeptic Magazine

This is the latest cover I've done for The Skeptic Magazine - a simpler idea than some of my previous covers! It's of Prof. Daniel C. Dennett - he's written some really excellent books, check 'em out if you can :)
