I am a drifter. I need to be more consistent. I put down illustration / concept art for a couple of years and have been focusing on design, writing and music. Creativity...It's a journey of faith for me.
I recently came back alive to art. It all started wit the below painting. It was done for a charity and really set me on fire again:
I also managed to get the comic I was working on HERE published, which was great. Below is the process and finished prints:
Some other pieces I have been working on and had printed:
I recently got a Pentel set of brushes (amazing tools for inking), and below are some of the results in my sketchbook:

Woah your work from ref is great! Especially the ones with brush pen, LOVING THEM!
Try and do loads of imagination stuff. I find that after an hour of small sketches and stuff, I'm completely out of ideas. If I push myself to keep drawing from imagination after that I come up with the things I like the most.
Hi, thanks for the comments and looking at my work.
Your stuff is really cool, your characters tell great stories with there gestures and your ink work is fantastic. Have you seen Atoms for peace website? Or any artwork from Radioheads music? I'd love to see you do an animated music video or something.
- Othrandir, thanks for the encouragement. Yeah, I need to get in the habit of doing smaller sketches and keeping loose at the rough stage. I need to keep pushing myself, like you do. I really love working with the brush pen, but it takes time, and its hard to be loose... though some people are able to be quite loose with ink it never reaslly works out for me. Thats why I am trying to work in pencil while I keep developing the foundations of drawing in my SB. However, I hope to do a lot of work in ink in the future!
- Dayle, I hadn't seen Atoms for Peace's website, but its pretty cool. Radiohead cover is classic. I don't know if I have the patience to get into animation... but I do see what you mean. Thanks for the words of encouragement, helps!
