Toil and Trouble!


Starting tomorrow I'll be sharing witch inspired illustrations daily on my facebook page:

Week of Witches runs from 22nd October - 28th October 2014. Why start a week of witches on a Wednesday? Well, maybe it's because I like alliteration. Or maybe it's because I was looking at the wrong month when I announced the dates. Either way, it starts tomorrow! Cackle Cackle *witch laugh*

October Shadows VII exhibition


Creature Feature's annual Halloween show 'October Shadows' is now open! I had a great time at the opening reception on Saturday.


This is the shows seventh year. Curator Stephanie Anne Joens has brought together an eclectic mix of 2D and 3D work from a diverse range of artists. Previous artists exhibiting here have included Rick Baker, Bruce Timm and Dan Brereton.


I have two pieces of work in the show, both inspired by old witch films. I'll also be sharing them on my facebook page as part of my 'Week of Witches' which begins next week.



Although there's tons of great work on display, the stand out piece for me was the amazing life size Witch Hazel model.
I was also happy to see Abbybelle's work on display. I first came across her work at Monsterpalooza (where she had the cutest Creature from the Black Lagoon models) and it fits perfectly with the Halloween nostalgia theme of the exhibition: https://www.etsy.com/shop/Abbybelle#

There's a wonderful variety of work on display, so get along to it if you can.
The show runs until 2nd November.

Creature Features at 2904 W Magnolia Blvd, Burbank, CA 91505.

Posta di Donna




I recently did an illustration of a woman with a longsword. The painting was based on a character from a comic book idea I've had floating around in my head for a while which I know I won't get to explore for a long time because I've got a full slate of projects.  But, this particular character was haunting me so I decided to do a little painting of her. 

I do martial arts and I've previously had the good fortune to train in longsword at the Hotspur School of Defence (I need to get back to training it again, it's amazing!).  So, I posed her in one of my favourite guards, Posta di Donna (Guard of the Woman) also known as 'Guard of Wrath' in German schools.
This illustration is now available on t-shirts, sweatshirts and vest tops through the wonderful Esfinges store. Esfinges is the first female international HEMA network, created to unite and support women martial artists, and to encourage and assist more women to take up the practice of Historical European Martial Arts.
Thanks to Claudia Krause for making it happen and thanks to the Esfinges network for being such a great supportive group for women martial artists.
Check out their store here, and their facebook page (which is open to men and women)
