7 days in Japan

I had the good fortune to visit Japan in November. What an incredible place. I managed to squeeze in Koyasan, Kyoto and Tokyo in a week, scribbling and painting along the way. If something stuck in my mind I'd make a quick onsite sketch and then paint it up later.

From the 1200 year old temples of Koyasan to speeding past Mount Fiji on a bullet train and being dwarfed by Kyoto, the startling scenery came thick and fast- here's some of the work.




















Doctor Who 50th anniversary doodle

The Doctor Who doodle started life as a request from a fan at Google. It seemed daunting- 11 Doctor's, 50 years of adventures, countless enemies and time travel!

But we loved the idea of science fiction, technology and fun coming together, so we set about creating a multiple level game. The game was always a simple premise- those dastardly Daleks have stolen the Google letters and we need Doctor Who to retrieve them.

Artists don't make games, programmers do. I provided the designs and various pieces of animation but without the engineers the game would only exist in another dimension! I was fortunate to work alongside people that genuinely cared:

Engineering Guru's - Rui Lopes, Corrie Scalisi. Mark Ivey
Additional support - Doug Simpkinson, Jonathan Shneier
All things D of 3 - Leon Hong
Deity of rain, lava & lightening - Kevin Laughlin

Below are visuals and gifs from game development. You can play the game HERE

Rosalind Franklin

An illustration for British Biophysicist Rosalind Franklin. Franklin contributed vital research to the study of DNA at the same time as Francis Crick, James Watson & Maurice Wilkins. Without her consent Wilkins showed Franklin's research to Watson. All three men were awarded the Nobel prize for Physiology in 1961 yet Crick admitted Franklin's data "was the data we actually used".



Seventh Seal

"This is my hand. I can move it, feel the blood pulsing through it. The sun is still high in the sky and I, Antonius Block, am playing chess with death"

Celebrating the 95th birthday of Ingmar Bergman. The Seventh Seal remains one of the most powerful, uncompromising and startling films in cinema history.

Rough sketches and final illustration.
