Nugget - the robotic snorkelling chicken

The results of the world in a box workshop! I wasn't expecting much, but I really enjoyed it. We had to pick three words out of a hat - two adjectives and one animal. I got shiny, flippant chicken - I didn't know how to show flippant, so I just gave him flippers. He's got all kitted out to go swimming, but he's sad when he realizes that he can't, because he's a robot chicken and would rust if he did.

I had a lot of fun making the details, like his goggles and the snorkel, and his feathers and tail were fun too. Got a bit bored with the scenery though. (The photos are rubbish too - forgot my camera so had to use the one on my phone..)

Though, as everyone pointed out, the bolts on his chest look a liiittle bit like nipples.... oh dear! Maybe he's sad because his bikini's a bit too small.

A preview of my christmas card - printed about 8 of this design, and 10 of another. It was done quite quickly so it's not as good as I wanted, but it's nice to have something to give people. Wrecked my hand trying to cut them all too - damn craft knife. Yaaaay christmas! Getting a bit lazy now... need to do more work!

St Trinians

Heh heh, me as a St Trinians girl, in my old Stanwell uniform. I had a bow on my head too, but I photoshopped it out cause it looked silly. His style is so hard to imitate...

Star Man mark II

Another piece for the four word project, not sure which word though! His name's Newt. A pen and ink wash over a print out of an opencanvas sketch.

Overnight project madness

The narrative and sequence project turned out to be awesome, but a bit mad! We had a day to finish 12 illustrations that made an abstract narrative based on two images they gave us. Up till 4am finishing it and made it into a book the next day. Pretty happy with it though - I love the badass coffee man.
