Playtime at Disney

Here's a piece I put together for Disney London illustrating some of the different play patterns of children. They were later cleaned up combined with the power of words to make marketing people understand it. But these are the original sketches. I did a lot of work for this project. Best project I ever worked on. Apart from the time I got paid to sit in an Advertising Agency for a week checking my facebook. I wouldn't be calling that a 'project' though.

Jemaine. Man or Legend.

You know I've often been compared to Jemaine Clement from Flight of the Concords. I don't know if it's my good looks, musical talent, acting ability, brilliant comedic mind or combination of all these. But it is nice to be occasionally reminded of the special connection that we both share. Pity they come from New Zealand and not Australia though, they'd be a lot better if they did.

Why Did I Draw This?

Honestly, I'm not too sure what was going on in my head. Why did I spend 2 and a half hours on drawing this and I don't know why. It seemed cool at the time. I think I was reading about Ancient Greece. Now I'm faced with the dilemma of spending 2 and a half more hours into developing it into something or just leave it as it is and walk away. 

Kredit Krunch. Low in Income!

For the benefit of everyone out there who is sick to death of the media's favourite new catch-phrase. I haven't seen a copy of The Metro without Credit Crunch in there somewhere for about 6 months. I've got to the point where it'd actually be nice if  they wrote a cover story about Amy Winehouse accidentally snorting crumbled parmesan. Actually that might have already happened.

Will Stoker Poster

I drew this as a preliminary sketch, it became the final. Will liked it as it was, words and all. He lectured me on not relying on the use of modern technology. On how computers are making us more and more skill deficient and the beauty of the simple methods of the past. Then he told me e-mail it to him so he could go print it.
