Also to help Japan, the comic anthology by Aardman Artists will be available with a limited bookplate in the front. There are only a small number of these available and they are at a suggested donation price. All proceeds will go to the relief effort. Update later with a link.




After seeing the atrocities and the aftermath, Gav Strange got the ball rolling and a few of us here at Aardman are trying to put a postcard pack together to raise a small amount for Japan...nothing too expensive, but something to help.


Figure Drawing - 10.03.2011

Just realised I havent posted any figure drawing for a while. Quick one from last night.

Faber-Castell Polychromos - 10 Minutes


Prairie Life

So in my 'Happy New Year' post, one of my resolutions was to learn/use colour. I suppose this would fall into that bracket. I did a quick block colour thing of the American prairie lands...not a clue where that came from or why. Oh the woes of ones subconsciousness. Maybe, in a past life, I had a little house there...

Then I decided to screw with it in photoshop and ended up with these:

"Little Barn on the Prairie"

"Little Barn on the Prairie...at night"

"Little Barn on the Prairie...under threat of invasion"

"Little Barn on the Prairie...by Saul Bass"
 As a side note...Adobe Kuler is the shit...it is the single most amazing thing I have ever seen for making colourings. That is what I learned.
