Anyway, uh...this is the second one.
Nothing much to it really, I wouldn't bother trying to 'look into' it for any kinds of hidden subliminal messages or meanings, because there aren't any. I'm just that much of an idiot.
And how robots go about drinking tea is anyones guess...
Those portraits were a bugger to do by the way.
Oh and see that building in the background? It's Swindon's famous Brunel Tower! You've heard of it, right?

Many would be embarrassed by this - but it's a very proud moment of my life, and one that I will cherish forever.
This was part of a daily illustration contest-thing between my housemate Joe and myself, which lasted about three days before we got bored.
The main character in this underwent a few modifications before also becoming the main character in a graphic novel im currently writing. Tell that to all your friends, I'm sure they'll be impressed.
This was done at about 4am, a mere few hours before the deadline of the first portion of said project. I drank so much coffee that morning...
I normally put a fair bit of detail in my work, so it was nice to be able to just do something simple, colourful and cartoony...which seems to echo the Zebrahead poster a fair bit.
Bonus points for knowing where I referenced the hungover monkeys from...

There's not really much I can say about this...I was bored one lunchtime and decided to draw some guy. Who is dancing.
It's not perfect, but hey - baby steps...
I distinctly remember chuckling to myself and having a childish grin on my face whilst drawing this.
In this case their anger has been roused by kids seemingly out to just look for them, when in reality they have darker intentions. Vengeful little sods.
It's yet be proven whether this is true or not. I can only pray that I'm wrong...

I had to make the CD artwork for a fake band for a uni project last year - so after asking numerous favours and arse-kissing a selection of people I knew, this little bundle of joy is the result! Well worth the lingering taste in my mouth.
The name of the album and all the pseudonyms of the members come from the often absurd titles of the junk mail in my housemate James's (a.k.a. Barney Tears) email inbox. Fact.
To be fair, I didn't really like this either at the time - but I've kinda taken a shine to it of late!
Bet you never thought of this eh, Romero?
For now though, you may gaze upon this picture. It started as a web conversation between me and my (Canadian) friend, about how she deserved to get a book written about or at least based on her.
She really doesn't, I was just being polite. But I did this anyway and it's turned into a potential future project...
