Portrait Commission

final_a_low.jpg

This was a private commission, given as a 70th birthday gift to the subject himself, cartoonist Andy Hammond. I have known Andy a long time, and this is how I remember him when I was growing up, working in his studio. Andy has long been a fan of Norman Rockwell, and it was decided that influence could be taken from Rockwell's work by sitting the subject on a plain white background. I was very pleased with the result of the image, largely drawn in pencil crayon, with a water colour wash behind.

 

Marietta College Magazine

A recent commission has seen me produce a couple of illustrations for the winter issue of Marietta College magazine in the States. The theme of the issue was the economic impact the college has on local economy, with particular focus on alumni and their input when they remain in the area post graduation. The cover illustration was to depict a few students meeting outside a well known restaurant/hotel, on their way to a college sporting event.

This set of nine illustrations were produced to accompany a magazine article entitled 'The Art of the Flinch'. The drawings were used to convey the different methods and tactics sometimes deployed during business negotiations. These included peering over spectacles, laughing at propositions, creating an uncomfortable silence, and so on.

 

Knowsley Safari Park

Knowsley Safari Park asked me to produce a visualisation illustration of their new 'tiger enclosure' viewing platform and path. I worked from plans and pre-construction photographs of the site to create an image that captures the appearance and atmosphere of this new area of the park.

 

Porsche Magazine

These illustrations were commissioned by Porsche magazine, to accompany a short story about a group of five friends who were travelling around New Zealand in a Panamera, trying seven extreme sports in seven days. The illustrations reflect the fluidity and movement within the activities and appear as if created in a travel journal, during the course of the week.
