Bits and Pieces

This is a piece I did for 'The Joker' Drawing Jam over at the Drawing Board. I'm in the process of inking and colouring it in my spare time.

But while you're waiting, artist extraordinaire Francesco Francavilla splashed some of his beautiful inkwork over the top and here's the results.

Next is a caricature of Britney Spears. I wasn't trying to be flattering.

I posted the original version of this zombie pic a while back, but I recently reworked it for a tshirt design over at my Cafepress store. I've added a whole bunch of new stuff to the store, so check it out.

Great work, Bluedecker!

I still get frustrated sometimes while drawing in vector, but you seemed to have mastered it quite well.

Calendar looks cool!

Nice variety of stuff at your shop.

Thanks for the Squidoo plug too. Appreciate it.

Love that Joker, but the Zombies take the cake.

Thanks everyone. The zombie pic is a favourite of mine too. I was trying to capture the creepy, foggy atmosphere of the Silent Hill games.

Greg- Thanks Greg! So I guess this is a love/hate relationship? ;)

Visiting your myspace page was a treat. Really love your work!

Marcello and Craig told me to just go over and say hi at Supernova but I got that brain numb thing and I realized "Hi you rock!" wasn't really going to cut it. So I 'll try to elaborate a little, You do great work, it is incredibly inspiring, love to grab a beer sometime ( as the expression goes I actually drink juice and palm it off as a vodka mix) and if you ever want to take on an apprentice at any point(I am aware that there is no actual need for one in our line of work but, whatever.. ) I'd appreciate learning from a real pro rather than guess work.

Chao amigo
p.s.I'll come over and say g'day next time
