More Robots

Lot of markers went into this. Funnily enough, now I need new ones, and some new source material.

Chillin' on the sofa

Sleeping man held by robot. Why? Well why not?
Development of the last piece I had up a week ago.

Logan's gunpoint

Again, more new. Refinement from the image I did a few days ago.

Titanium love

Work at work. Different style I'm working on, did it at my desk today. Don't ask about the content. Just somehow ended up that way.

Sci-fi antics

Why? I don't know why, something about 'Logan's run' was going through my head when I started this. It might wind up being a contest entry I'm currently working on, once I'm done doing a few more with the odd bit of cropping here and there.
Decided I wouldn't retouch it this time and left the layout alone so it's still got the sketchbook format.

Jesmond Church

More architectural drawing. This time another section from the local area. I think this will eventually build up to a full study of Jesmond in Newcastle. Admittedly I need to get a bit of variety into my diet, but I proper love drawing those bricks.

A Bit of work done at work, haven't been fired as of yet, but I make a point of closing my sketchbook quickly if I see anyone with a suit walking past.
This is a retake of a project I did with some fellow artists on my degree last year as an animation.
I've adjusted the design a little and thought what it would be like if civilization lived in the worn out cast-iron shells of giant robots left over from some sort of great war.
Might develop it a bit. This robot is Europe, as you can see, and the remnants of our continent live inside it. Global warming has covered most of the Earth so the robot is immersed in water.

Newcastle city hall, come on MP's, buy a print. You know you fancy a bit of that.

Still convinced I can have multiple styles, here's some new architectural drawing. Found out about this building site near me that was once Jesmond Picture House, now knocked down to make a new set of office blocks (charming). Got a few snaps of the place before they smashed it, and knocked these images up. I'm thinking I might extend them to an entire study of what the place was like during it's heyday. It's a typical story of a listed building which was deliberately left to fall into disrepair so that the local Council would have a reason to knock it down and sell the land.
Anyway, here's before and after, although the before isn't massively clear. Think I'll keep whipping these up though, it's therapeutic.

3 new self directed images. The first two are mostly referring to how I feel about full time work, and the third is representational of the old industries which died out in the 1980's.

Part of another brief for an Amelias' Magazine contest, an environmental theme this time.

Part of an ongoing personal project, full set is on the way. Ace of Hearts was recently shortlisted for the Amelias Magazine Shelter Brief.
