Wil Wheaton on the Couch - Tabletop Season 2 Illustration

NEW!!  Once again, Geek & Sundry have been AWESOME and let me officially sell prints of the new artwork. They rock!!





After talking with the show's producer, I supplied artwork for Wil Wheaton on the Couch - for the possibility of it being in the show.

Well BIG NEWS!  Wil just posted photos on his blog from filming on the set.. And look what's in the background!!

Can't believe its been a year since I spend a quiet Christmas creating the Wil Wheaton Last Supper illustration, and things wen't mental!  I posted it just as a comment on Wil's blog, and he replied saying it looked awesome - and then he tweeted the link to it! I got a massive response from fans of the Geek & Sundry show, and lots of requests to buy prints - which I couldn't do without permission from Wil, Felica and Geek & Sundry.

And then I was contacted by the Producer of the show! They asked me if I would mind if they used a print of the artwork on Season 2! That was a fast decision. I signed an agreement, and it now sits behind the Loser's Couch at the end of every episode - it was even talked about during the live stream last year.

And as a wonderful ending to the story, Will, Felica and Geek & Sundry gave me permission to sell the print - which was really kind of them.

You can still the Tabletop Last Supper Print here

Season 2 of Tabletop is still underway as I write this, but with another quiet Christmas, I had an idea for a new artwork, which features on of the on-going gags in the show, namely that Wil doesn't win that often! So in this new artwork, I follow that through to its natural conclusion... or is it? 

Isn't that Wil Wheaton being turned away from Loser's Couch? Hmmnn..

I couldn't resist putting the Last Supper artwork in the background (hey, that's where it lives for real!)  Hope you like it.

Published Infographics

Earlier in the year I was approached by an agent from a publishers who had seen one of my older infographics on The Sun, and wanted to know if they could purchase the rights to it to be added into a  book.

After talking further, it turned out that the publisher (Essential Works) produces a range of themed Infographic Books, where a topic is selected as a theme and dozens of illustrators and designers are hired to create a hardback book with nothing in it but infographics.

The Sun infographic was to to go in a book titled Infographic Guide To Life, The Universe and Everything - but it needed some adjustment to get it on brand and the right format.

In further conversation, the agent was also looking to hire for another book in the series, Infographic Guide to Music - so I offered my services for this also.

The book went on sale at the end of the summer, and as far as I can tell sold out on its first run. I had to purchase copies for myself, and had to go with private sales to get them!

I don't know if the distributor Octopuss Books will do a second edition of them, but you can still get them it via Amazon with a bit of hunting - the link shows all in the series.

Here's some photos of the two books; For the Life, The Universe and Everything book, my Illustration made the front cover!

So Many Bulbs...

Here's my first foray into looping GIF animations. Don't ask me why I chose bulbs - I don't know. They're just bulbs. (4 more after the break)

Fan Art: SherDoc - Sherlock and Doctor Who Mashup Poster

This is something that I've thought about doing for some time - the only thing that ever stopped me was that I was SURE that someone else must have already done it.

I did a bit of research surfing, and was surprised that no-one had. So here it is: Benedict Cumberbatch as The Doctor and Andrew Scott as The Master. I think you'd agree, whether you're a Doctor Who or a Sherlock fan - it would be a pretty awesome fit if it ever came to be.

But for now, this is purely fan art just for fun. Mine, mostly.

Illustration: Team London ASSEMBLE!

This was a job I recently did at Beyond just to come up with some graphics to help brighten up our new London Bridge offices.

No real idea here - just working out an idea. Exorcising demons. Less of a creative brief and more of a coping mechanism.

Don't ask me to explain what it means - I have literally no idea.
