It's a long shot, but it just might work...

I've been working on an illustration based on the films of the Coen Brothers, specifically the period from Raising Arizona through to the Big Lebowski. I like all the wide angle shots they use, hence the stacked letterbox outcome of this print.

Seeing as it's the Coen Brothers, I was spoiled for choice when it came to quotes...

(It's a work in progress at the moment, as I'd like to include the railroad from O Brother Where art thou as well.)

You know, it's so nice when it happens good...

Finally, here's the fully assembled Seinfeld illustration - I'm getting few copies printed on a big A0 sheet on Friday, then they'll crop them ready to be delivered early next week.

I can't wait to watch them slice this fat bastard up!

When you control the mail, you control... INFORMATION!

Finally, the big boy. When it's all put together, Newman will go right in the middle of the piece, imposing himself on everybody like a bad smell. He is merry though, I'll give him that.

(Also, this bit is my favourite Newman moment.)

White Lotus. Yam-yam. Shanghai Sally

I'm down to the last few now - here's J. Peterman, importer/exporter of exotic garments and master of the poetic sales pitch.

Gotta support the team...

Another minor character that I'm pleased to be able to include: David Puddy

I considered having him wear the eight-ball jacket - or even sharing a meal of dip with George, and then calling him out on double dipping the chip.


Next up, Elaine - I've done her doing the dance from the Little Kicks episode. As George put it, it's like like a full bodied dry heave set to music.

It's outrageous, egregious - preposterous!

Alongside the main characters, I'm doing five extra recurring characters - and I'm happy to say that selection includes Kramers lawyer of choice, Jackie Chiles.

Apparently there were plans for a spin-off show - probably for the best that it didn't come about.

These pretzels are making me thirsty!

Next up: Cosmo Kramer - man's best friend. Giddyup!

If you watch the show, the background should also be familiar...

Billions of blue blistering barnacles!

After a heroic run as indie heavyweights, our friends The Bluetones are unfortunately throwing in the towel after one last tour. We've been asked to play their final show, and to mark the event I'll be doing an extremely limited run of these Tintin themed posters to promote the gig.

It's just a work in progress at the moment, so that mustard background might be subject to change...

Million to one shot, Doc...

Frank Costanza. It was a shame not to be able to include Estelle in the line-up, but at least she's present in doll form in one if the linking panels.

I would drape myself in velvet if it were socially acceptable...

Here's George Costanza, the George you know - Movie George, Coffee shop George, Liar George, Bawdy George!

If you look closely at some of the other illustrations, you'll see the rest of that fishing rod eventually hooking a marble rye from Jerry...

... And you wanna be my latex salesman!

Here's the first of the Seinfeld illustrations that I've been doing - they'll eventually all fit together to form a big mad print. In case it's not clear, this one is Jerry...

More Seinfeld buttons...

Here's a better look at the rest of the connecting icons I'll be using in the finished image - I'm going to put them in between the various characters as a way of connecting them with plot points.

(Looking at them in this layout, I can totally imagine them as a neat little sticker set - I'd probably put the Bro one on my homework diary if they were.)

Work in progress: Seinfeld buttons...

Been working on a big Seinfeld illustration and it's going to be pretty densely packed with details - these are a selection of icons that connect Newman to the rest of the cast.


Congratulations Emma and Gregor!

A friend very kindly commissioned me to do an illustration of some friends of hers who were getting married - lucky for me that they were getting married in Iceland in a ridiculously picturesque setting, and I was able to match it with the style of illustration. The church at the top might as well be a photograph, it really was that small and that sweet.

Gingerbread Academy II: Their First Assignment

Following on from the last bit of work I did for them, this is another artists impression for Gingerbread Academy - hopefully they'll get me to do another five installments like the Police Academy series did.

(I might duck out on the last one like Guttenberg...)
