MAY-OCTOBER 2016: Books and Monsters

The best part of 2016 saw a big commission for Mind Candy to design and create a couple of
personalised story books.

The first project was to storyboard and create a rough layout for Petlandia, Mind Candy's first foray into the personalised storybook market. You can see the finished title and order a copy HERE.

The next and most significant book project was the Moshi Monsters Egg Hunt. Here's a couple of snaps of my own (named!) copy.

While the commission initially came my way I was by no means the only artist on this; it was a big old project with a fairly intense pace. So while I was busy creating all the backgrounds, plus colouring and lighting the characters, the amazing Lea Wade led the charge with sketching and lining the characters. It was great fun and I got to work with some old friends from Mind Candy and it wouldn't be right for me not to mention names and contributions:
Art Director- Neil Tony Porter
Lead Character artist- Lea Wade.
Extra character art - Mazz Attak, Steven Plunkett and Trevor White 

MARCH-APRIL 2016: Never say never

I'm playing catch up again here!
2016 was fantastically busy with some big commissions. In March I was asked to create some characters for a mobile game that was right up my street; Monsters and warriors and magic! It was for a prolific gaming company, who shall (and have to) remain nameless.
Sadly, after about a months work it was canned but I had a lot of fun with it anyway, working on my fantasy chops ;)

Below is a small sample of what might have been:
