Relationships between wild animals and humans

This image goes along with the previous post, it was for the last unit of Level 4 at AUCB (Functions of Illustration). I wanted to show the how tame the animals were on the safari I went on in Longleat. The animals are well treated however they are there for our amusement, they defying nature, by being so tame and comfortable in their restraints.

Old drawing I found from before summer

Just found this, something I made for the last unit of the first year, looking at relationships between humans and animals. I drew this using pictures I had taken on safari in Longleat. I was taken then by my man on valentines day. What I think I like the most is the paper that I drew on, it was paper I used while I was printing, sort of a happy accident.
Ink, chalk, pencil.

Honeycreeper Plasma

This is it in it's original form, the colourful, trippy version might not make it onto Threadless because you are only allowed to use 4 colours, but what do you think of it in just plain black and white?

New Zine and Threadless

The second issue of Alkoholik Robotik is out there and being enjoyed by many, and I want to thank everyone for their support! If anyone is looking to get their hands on a copy just leave me and comment and I will get back to you.

I've been considering whether or not to send in one of my drawings from this issue into Threadless. There's an opportunity to make a bit of cash and get my design onto a tee, so keep a heads up for any links I post because I will need all the votes I can get! Here's the drawing I'm thinking of submitting so please let me know if you can think of any improvements I can make or if you've had experience with submitting artwork to Threadless let me know.

Bookmarks and Trumpets

I've been searching the net for some new inspiration for the next year, and found some pretty cool sites I thought I'd share with all of you lovely folk.

I love his insanely talented illustrator, I'm going to see how many times I can use James Jean in my artist research over the next year, so far from last year I'm on 3.

and finally an oldie, but a goodie.... who has this incredible new website

Purple Flyer

This is the flyer I did for the 2nd issue of Alkoholik Robotik hype. It's inspired by a little video clip I saw the other week, you seriously have to check this out!! - enjoy!!

Alkoholik Robotik Zine 2nd Issue

Out Monday the 4th Oct.
We will be selling them outside the Illustration block at AUCB during lunchtime. If you can't get down there contact me on, only for very special people we can arrange something a bit more postal.

We've spent some time over summer reflecting on how to make this second zine so much better than the first. The issue is focused on colours, and we've all represented a colour through imagery, also the issue itself will be in colour this time. Month by month this zine is really going to grow to watch out as we get some 'Botiks' on board to add some more diversity to the collective.

The flyers were some promotion we did for the zine during freshers week, many thanks to Rob Smale.
