This is a design for a screenprinting competition, the brief being 'power in numbers'. As a kid I was really into Jim Lee style x-men and this is a bit of tribute to that. All the costumes are Lee style. I haven't really drawn marvel or DC superheroes since I was about 12, apart from maybe batman and superman a couple of times and I can freely say that it was so much fun! I can't wait to colour it, although the brief was for a one colour design, I'm gonna colour it anyways.. I'm particularly pleased with Gambits face.

This is the design for the new Kill it Kid single. It will be available as a 7" on the 18th of May I believe. The challenge here was to create something that nods to the band's rootsy blues country stylings whilst injecting something new and vibrant. It is also quite a somber subject to the song lyrics although the actual song is very uplifting so I wanted something sensitive but not in anyway depressive or morose. The writing on the barn was inspired by the rock city barns but has a slightly anarchist edge to it..
