A collection of European Bartender School stamps.

Got a call from an old friend before Christmas. He moved to Stockholm and is now managing the rebuild of a website for European Bartender School. They had a really great idea of promoting the schools in Europe an beyond (Thailand anyone?) with passport style stamps. Encouraging students to travel and holiday while they learn

O2 Home Broadband Start screen

O2 Home Broadband Start screen

Before Niggles & Narks, in 2009, VCCP created an interim look and feel for O2’s broadband offering. This was fairly much a scribbly line drawing of a house with an equally scribbly headline. O2 wanted to show their broadband deals in-store, so I was teamed with a freelance Copywriter (Hi Dianne :-)), and we went about creating a sequence of screens for 19" touchscreens. Expanding and animating this simple identity.

Halloween can be cute

Happy Halloween, a cute little bat asleep on a pumpkin ;-)

Happy Halloween, a cute little bat asleep on a pumpkin ;-)

In 2011 I draw a little bat asleep on pumpkin for Halloween. One year on I thought I’d add it here :-). I only used flat colour and no outlines. It’s a style I will be using more of in the future. Simple, clean shapes that lean towards being a bit geometric. Keeping it super cute. An animal and a prop.

"A" for Albatross, "Q" for Quatermaster

I’ve started a personal project to illustrate animals in professions, one for each letter of the alphabet. I’m drawing them in alphabetical order. So far I’ve done four. An albatross, bull, cat and dog. This is "A" for Ablatross. I’ll post about the others later. When I have all 26 done I’ll also have a complete set of alphabet professions :-).

A spirit guardian

Moonbae-do, acrylic on wood 1998

This one was painted on a small wooden panel that was left over from a project. A spirit guardian to look over our door. Loosely based on Korean Moonbae-do painting.
