The Motley Project

I've been quite diverse recently taking on many different projects, this being a good example of that. I was asked by proud parents to do a caricature of their 3 beautiful kids. The brief asked for bold, colourful and fun, I soon realized that a traditional caricature wasn't gonna do it. So after toiling away with several different techniques I eventually settled with this 'graffiti style' which seemed to tick all the boxes. I drew all the outlines in Illustrator first then imported to photoshop to add the vector like colouring. I was pleased with the final image, as were the parents, more importantly!

British BodyGuard Association Illustration

I have an affiliation with an organization called the British BodyGuard association and they commissioned me to do an illustration for an article in their quarterly, industry leading, publication - 'The Circuit' magazine.
The article was discussing whether the conventional and stereo typical doorman could fill the shoes of a hostile environment bodyguard.
The exposure from the illustration has led to many more offers of work and it appears I am now the resident illustrator for the publication! Funny how things happen.
Anyway, check them out at http://www.the-bba.org.uk/ and if you have any bodyguard needs, you know where to go...
