Circus poster commission

This is a recent commission- a custom vintage style circus poster which I drew the bike sketches for reference. I like the colour scheme, very retro.

Coventry roadworks

I had a hard time liking Coventry when I started working here, which is partly why I started sketching there over the summer. I can't help but like something if I spend time drawing it. I've learnt some interesting local history on the way too, but so far I've concentrated on the more scenic parts.  Which is a bit misleading. Here's a more typical street scene, about 100 m from where I work. Note scenic road works and 1950s concrete buildings. The building at the centre back is the courthouse.

Indian wedding invitation comic

This is a comic which will be used for a wedding invitation. I tried out a new inking method. It cuts time, which means I can spend more time on the drawing and colouring -hopefully leading to cooler looking artwork.
