A few sheep for BBH anniversary
We’ve recently been unceremoniously evicted from our fantastic studio and have spent two months sorting a new one [above]. Now in and settled, time to crack on with some new work.
Occasionally I get to do some straight drawing….for an animated film thru Masius.
Found this old portrait David Hughes did of me a couple of years ago.
A rare piece of editorial for Management Today – last piece must be a decade ago with the great Anne Braybon.
…..big. My first foray into scaling up my work [4×3 foot painting] and the first appearance of the ArtAngel. Watch this space for developments.
A squished Mantis in my Greek sketchbook.
Found this scribble I did with Steadman in one of his books – 1987..aaargh. I seem to remember he had a crate of Budweiser and a bottle of Jack, hence the madness. I’ve still got the gold pen he gave me.
Der Spiegel’s latest ‘Darf Man Das’.
My latest buy for the studio….the Saunton Shark
A chance to draw the Pink Panther for Der Spiegel – always a pleasure.
From the “builtbypeople’ series comes a new Yeti in yellow.
An old label illustration I did for Anita Roddick’s husband. Thought I’d get it on the blog before it blows up – looks a bit ropey. I’d have drunk it when I was a student!
A few animated bits and bobs from 2011, expertly put together by the indefatigable Simon Deshon.
No 1 – ‘Chosen’ for American Illustration 2012. Part of a series of photo etching prints I’m working on, loosely based on celebrity. No 2 – One of 4 pieces I did through The Creative Federation for JISC. Soon to be animated.
Adobe commission to do a live-draw at their launch party for CS6 and Creative Cloud at the amazing 1 Marylebone. The VIP guests could tag their illustrations on Facebook the following morning [if they could find themselves]. Drawn on iPad using Photoshop Touch, importing and filtering shots of the venue and guests then scribbling to make it look like the craziest party.
X MediaLab, the internationally acclaimed digital media think-tank came to Bath last month to run one of their globe-trotting Digital workshops. They invited us to live-draw to add some texture and creativity to entertain delegates. We drew on iPads and the drawings were projected onto the walls inside the Ballroom of the world famous Assembly Rooms where Jane Austen would have danced – to a different iTune of course Mr Darcey. Shot by Joe Brown, directed by Simon Deshon at The Creative Federation.
2 new HP films through The Creative Federation animated and directed by me and Simon Deshon. Written by Sean Toal at Doremus.

Mad bag scribbling. Students at Sheffield Hallam are raising money again. Details of auction to follow.

Bath Half Marathon
The Bath Half Marathon live animation with Brushes – Me and Tim Vyner [Official Olympic Artist] trade lines on a big LED. Animation below.
….what did they ever do for us? A couple of drawn sets for an upcoming parody animation of that classic Monty Python sketch.
Another piece of German madness.
Took the bike in for MOT and saw this bit of mechanics creativity – good skills Terry at D&H Motorcycles.

Fantastic weekend of projections for Illuminate Bath Me, Tim Vyner, Simon Deshon and Anthony Head plastered The Roman Baths with drawings and films.
Had a bit of time to do some personal work over Christmas, here’s one of them, a biostration of Virginia Woolf.

A Creative Federation film for the government’s Joint Information Systems Committee film to encourage universities to sign up.
A marvelous little book of collective nouns by twobytwo design.
A few pissed sketches from the Feds lunch at the best Provencale restaurant in the West country. Deshon responsible for the inevitable deterioration in subject matter.

Here’s my first caption comp illo for the Sunday Times. Get your captions in now!!
The latest Der Spiegel piece about crashing parties.
A new charity project to encourage kids to draw in Israel. Gymnasia Herzlia, the 1st Hebrew school in Tel Aviv , sent 150 international artists one of their school exercise books to fill with drawings for an exhibition to tour schools. Below are a few of mine from an afternoon of inky madness.
Look out for the new CIA calendar, going to press now. Order yours here.
