These are the final characters for Greenhome.ie
You can see (compare with previous post) how tight the fairy was when the first draft was presented. The Vampire was there from the beginning too. But he needed more variations till it got to a point where the customer was happy.
The monster in that other post never made it to the final stage.
This is one of the illustrations I've done for a very nice project based in the Woodstock Gardens in Inistioge. I'll post the full product once it comes back form the printers.
I spent hours looking at Milton Caniff's comics. That guy is a genius using a brush!
Hope you like it

These are a few characters I designed last year for a Film Festival Poster. None of them were used. I've just found them when I was archiving the latest illustrations I am doing. Which I hope to be posting soon.
I thought it might be interesting to show illustrations before they are treated in the computer. In this case all of them are inked very clean using a Hunt102 nib and indian ink.
It was one of the first times I used photographic reference. It would have been really difficult to get all the details of the clothes in my head. I used a magazine on Japanese Teenage Culture.
Hope you like them.

Last Thursday 31st July I attended the opening of three exhibitions in the Ormeau Baths Gallery in Belfast: AES+F's Last Riot, The Association of Illustrators's Images 31 and IGI's Slant where I took part (see previous post in June.)
The gallery has a few amazing spaces and the works displayed were amazing.
Worth seeing if you are around.
Hope you enjoy it
