Season's Greetings,

I have the week off next week from boarding so i'm planning to do some of my own publishable stuff on the blog. The last couple have months I've been consumed with work. So keep tuning in whoever you are and I'll be postin' very soon! In the meantime check out the incredible new links update on the John Nevarez site, unbelievable talent on display.

So with that I'll leave you with the inimitable Jimmy Stewart reading one of his classic poems. Probably seen it before but it's priceless ....bring an ol' tear to the eye.............

tryin out somethin different altogether. Needed some life drawin pointers from Ed but kept at it and came up with this. I like the cahracter against white better than the others but i was happy enough with the way it turned out. I threw the sketch in aswell for no reason.

these were a couple of panels from a dvd store competition. They opened up the playing field for anynoe interested in submitting an idea fopr an advert for their store. I had the whole idea that it could been based around the three jaws characters renting out a dvd for their boat trip. So like obviously they strap the boat to the jeep to go to the dvd superstore, only when they're outside they don't have enough room, prompting the infamous quote 'we're goin' to need a bigger boat!!
never heard back but they didn't rip off the idea anyway...

from a ruff doodle, it's a king of a futuristic cockpit type thing

Another character from the kid columbo thing, this is the real Columbo who happens to be the kids ol' lad, who's always around to dispense some sound advice, while chokin on a fat Cuban.

Messin' around with that cowboy in illustrator thought I'd post it. I wanted to put $5 reward on it but the font I downloaded had symbols instead of letters on it so shag it I didn't bother, cause it's not a serious thing anyway.

Thought I'd post these, they're old enough sketches, did'em about a year or so ago. Not much of a zoo man myself, went to that stuffed animal place in town, it's easier when the animals don't move, but, the biggest drawback is the smell of rotting flesh, and there's an odd drifter urine type smell in a couple of corners. Anyway, we march forth and keep pencil pushing! Gotta plan another trip out there because it's a lot of fun and you can take your time.

doodling today, always have this f***ing urge to smudge when I'm usin this paper, bit of fun though whatever Happy Tuesday!

brother asked me to do him a favour for a presentation in his job, they're proposing top build a warehouse for something or other, they gave me just a rough sketch and a floorplan and basically as long as the loading bays were all accounted for as well as car park and gateway I could do what I wanted. only thing was was that they wanted bugger all perspective just barely enough. I cut a couple of corners, sorry the post isn't the best copy, it was a3 size so I took an iphoto of it.

late now gonna hit the sack,

A couple more from the vault....

Greetings, no drawing tonight so I thought I'd post this pitch for a tv show idea I keep pickin away at. Kid Columbo, based on the original Columbo series but with a kid. Yeah ... I know ...... groundbreaking idea ... and like really original .... well the whole thing came to me in realising that I've probably on a very few occasions figured out who was behind murders in Poirot, Sherlock Holmes or Jessica Fletcher tv shows, so here's one for kids who like meself are a bit simple, and don't think while watchin tv. I blame the radio waves comiong from the screen, or brainwave killers as I like to call them myself... Anyway it's somethin different. It's like Alan Partridge said 'revolution not evolution!!!'

Spent the entire weekend painting the walls of the kitchen, sore arms and everything now. Still it's always worth the pain for the satisfaction of the coupla beers aterwards. Here are a couple more roughs from Troy Ride - didn't get a chance to work on any new stuff over the couple of days.

Thought I'd throw this on the blog, It's my cousin's group, Messiah J and the Expert, they're startin to kick off here in Ireland and abroad, looks and feels like a really good tune, video's not bad either. Enjoy!

Had a few pints tonight, Spurs got to the next round of the UEFA cup but no-one gives a shit. Here's one from the sketchbook......

Watchin Liverpool scramble a win against Galatasaray. Not worried the Gunners sailed past Porto last night. The Hex of the Emirates Stadium is behind them and they're scorin freely again, just like Highbury. While I was watchin I drummed up a couple of Golfer sketches. One is standard enough the second was tricky with the foreshortening, but they're the ones you never give up on because if life was that easy, nobody'd grumble. Cheers for the comments and feel free to check back anytime for updates.
