All Sports

More old character designs, this time for a company called NakedPenguinBoy in Farringdon on a project for All Sports. They wanted an intro movie to an 'exclusive club' style area of their website. These characters above are for the club interior. All Sports actually went bust pretty soon after the website was launched.

19 year old me

This is a self-portrait I did when I was 19, so 10 years ago.

The serious look is partly concentration, partly the angle I was trying to draw myself from and partly because I really thought of myself as a serious Artist at this point.

I often wonder what 19 year old me would think of 29 year old me. I guess I would think I was a classic sell-out, sacrificing artistic credibility for a guarantee of paying the bills. And I'd be right about that.

But I hope that I would also recognise an ordinary bloke trying to earn a living. I think I'd respect me for that.

I hope I'd respect me for that.

I'm getting married in a couple of months and the big 30 is staring me right in the face so forgive me a little navel gazing.
