New Work

For some time now I have been playing with a new style that is more unique and has a "high-end" picture book type feel to it.

Let me explain.

It is a very different working process for me. Usually my work involves doing a lot of drawings beforehand and then inking and cutting out the image. Here I have taken a more free-form approach.

I draw the characters and make a rough plan of the layout then basically go nuts with the scissors and make an enormous mess while piecing together the image. I shall have to take a picture of the studio while doing this to prove how crazy it gets.

I really like the result and it feels very natural for me to be working this way as I am not the neatest person in the world : )

And I like the designed feel to it.

I will be adding these shortly to my website and will see what people think.
