International Self Portrait Day 2016

So... this is a bit late. International Self Portrait Day is always on November 1st, and I did manage to squeeze in a little time to take part this year (and then plain forgot to post here!).

I'm still working on my personal sketch limitations - 4 colours maximum, solid blocks and hard edges only (techniques like hatching not allowed), and seeing how far I can go with it. I'd have liked to have had more time, but it was at a premium that day so I had to make do, and got it done with just minutes to spare! Anyway, it's a great idea to get involved in challenges like this, or Drawllowe'en, or Inktober (which I'm now committing to for 2017) as you can really stretch yourself if you like, you can experiment with styles you wouldn't normally use but with some structure to the challenge (which some people, myself included, like as a change of pace from personal work which is entirely unguided), and you're taking part in something with other people across the world - that's an awesome feeling.

Thanks for looking!

Work from World War Cthulhu: Our American Cousins

Good grief, it's been quite a while since I had an update for you! As always, there's an awful lot stashed away that I'm not cleared to show, but some pieces have now been given the green light to be posted. I've painted ten pieces for the Our American Cousins supplement for World War Cthulhu, but only three have been revealed so far (and the cover, which features art from Jon Hodgson and logo from Paul Bourne - check it all out here). Here we go:

Thanks for looking!
