7.1 earth shaker

At around 4:35am early saturday morning a 7.1 magnitude earth-quake hit Christchurch. It was by far the worst earth quake I've been in. The amazing thing is that no one was killed.
Poor mum and dad had come up to stay with us for dad's birthday.
At the moment we're still in civil defense mode, with many many aftershocks. There's a real issue of more damage to buildings, people's homes. Also with water contamination. It's gonna be a huge clean up.
It's times like these that your so thank-ful for loved ones, friends and the blessing of everyone been safe.

Peter Jackson caricatures

This is a pen sketch I did quite some years ago. Found it the other day and thought I'd post it online. I cringe when I look at his feet but oh well.... always a WIP, always learning.
I'm still happy with the shading and hatching. 
This one I did up last year. I know at the time I was aiming for a clean feel to it. Which I did find challenging because whatever lines you choose to leave out you hope you can still capture the look of the person.

Favourite books

I've had these books for years... like when I was 5. I use them quite often as they are a great source of inspiration and the actual artwork is amazing. It still amazes me the simplicity of the images but yet what seasoned artist's they were (are) with the technicality and finish.
Fav disney character is Goofy and I love the jungle book characters too.

Mr Leafy concept idea

This is an idea for a canvas digital print that I'm working towards. I've already done monkey-man as a digital print which is cool. It's nice to have something that is tangible to see and touch. 
I'm also gonna add a little message with Mr Leafy.
Will post up when he's ready to go digital canvas.
