Try and track down a copy of WIRED US from Jan 2017 - it had about 10 sci-fi short stories, and each was accompanied by a full page illo - some great stuff in there… https://www.wired.com/magazine/the-scifi-issue/
Looks good! That’s given me the kick to contact the magazine Little White Lies and see if they fancy using my illustrations on anything…thanks!
You may be able to Google a cough free PDF cough of that Wired. Just sayin’. Good idea re LWL, although I think they tend to go with an artist/designer for the entire issue. Maybe suggest some quirkier, high profile releases coming up in the next 3-6 months that they’re likely to theme an issue around - which also suit your drawing style. Help them make their minds up. I just bought LWL for the first time in a long while - and it looks fantastic:
A pic from travels around Vietnam in 2002. Sapa; a dusty old town in the mountains where time had really stood still.
Has been ages, lots of catching up to do!
The drunken sailor. Found this guy in a museum and thought he was horrific enough to deserve a sketch.
A few headshots from earthsworld.blogspot.com (a photographer who documents the weird and wonderful of US county fairs)
The King, bebbeh.
A Silver Mt Zion.
My ode to 60s design.
And finally, worked out how to record my Photoshop sketches, so here are a couple:
A few recent drawings; Chuck Berry, Jimi Hendrix, Robert Johnson, Serge Gainsbourg, ‘sunset’, a horse and rider from a county fair, Mia Farrow from ‘See No Evil’ and Howlin’ Wolf.
Not my usual thing, but if anyone’s in the Ladbroke Grove area and spots this, it’s one of mine:
(doing some design work for my old record label)
Sketch-wise, here’s a Billie Holiday:
And a guy from 1938 Louisiana…
And a couple of recent pieces I’ve been working on, from a visit to Flambards theme park / museum in Cornwall, which had a really interesting ‘Blitz Experience’.
All digitally painted; I’ve been trying to get a realistic painterly look in Photoshop. It was fun, but a challenge - today’s Han Solo was an hour of speedy joy in comparison!
Inktober! Let’s see how long I can go before I fall behind and get sad.
That last one is particularly great.
Cheers Dave! Appreciated.
