The Eels

I saw the Eels in LA when my girlfriend and I were there earlier this year.  It was a great show and they're one of my favourites so here's a little tribute to those hombre lobos.

Smooth Lines

Just got back from a long break overseas and decided I really need to keep this thing updated.  Inspired by my new Koastal skateboard and the legendary photography of Dick Hoole I've created this piece. Working on a few new techniques here I picked up from my travels in the US and making a bit of a tribute to the unreal Californian coast and my brothers in the Cuskies boardriding club.  I've rediscovered my love of surfing, skating and music lately... we'll see where this takes my art.  I'll be posting at least 1 image a week from now on, so let me know what you think...

Jake's Monster Mess

I haven't posted anything for a while... I've been flat out, but it's no excuse.
I've decided to make a conscious effort to post regularly with little sketches and development work for projects I'm working on.  Here is the first of many more to come... 

I got my hands on a copy of my latest book, Jake's Monster Mess, written by Ken Spillman.  We're starting to kick a few goals with the series and I just finished work on the 3rd titled Jake's Balloon Blast.  I'll post some more on that later but for now here's a sneak peek of JMM - in stores early May. Enjoy!

Surf Art

Inspired by more surfing of late and the latest surf film from Taylor Steele, I've decided to do more surf art and experiment a little with creating a series of surf illustrations.  Here's the first 1 using a lot of watercolour and enhancing a little with digital.
