A T-rex in town. In 2016 the Naturalis Biodiversity Centre (Amsterdam) excavated a well preserved t-rex skeleton


I was lucky enough to be asked to paint this picture of a t-rex for The Naturalis Biodiversity Centre, located just outside Amsterdam.
In 2016 the Naturalis Biodiversity Centre excavated a well preserved t-rex skeleton in Montana. 
 The t-rex skeleton (300 bones) was then flown from the USA to the Netherlands.

Passengers on a KLM flight departing from Chicago heard a surprising announcement while they were waiting to board. They were told that they’d be flying to Amsterdam with the 66+ million year old Tyrannosaurus. 

Escorted by police, the remains were driven to Leiden

Tron inspired concept art for Michelin

Have not posted in a long time. I've been busy working on all sorts of fun projects including the one above for Michelin. At first I drew them a suburban family car. They got back to me saying that they wanted it to be a little more badass... so obviously I had no choice but to make it look like Tron :)

Photomontage

Before & after.
Had fun putting this photomontage together. That's the great thing about Photoshop, you can place the Mediterranean sea next to your house in central France. (You may not want to buy a house site unseen from me...you might be a little disappointed.)

May I present to you John Lennon




This one took ages to make, partly because I went for something photo real but also because getting a resemblance is..... challenging, especially at this size. (My apologies to John Lennon for being tempted, several times along the way, to mush his vague likeness back into a ball.)
Hopefully the struggle was worth it and I've stretched my mind a bit.

Oh the wonderful large sceens!

I could not help but share this. Here is my new setup! My Cintiq and a new, gloriously fast, 27"Imac with a solid state drive. OH the possibilities! This makes me happy! P.S don't mind the mess on the floor it's... part of the process.

Another from The Edge Chronicles



















































I thought I would start the New Year with a little more sculpting. Here is another character from one of the Edge Chronicles books written by Paul Stewart and illustrated by Chris Riddell. I used grey Sculpey and sprayed it lightly with white paint to give it sort of a granite look. The glasses are just made from wire that I wrapped around a chopstick so as to make them round.

Smug Character

 







































This little guy is made of Sculpty and not Platercine so I was able to cook him and mount him on a block. He was inspired by one of the characters in The Graveyard Book written by Neil Gaiman.
