sprung cleaned my website

It's been a whole year since I uploaded my website and it sorely needed an update of new work. As with any old piece of work you revisit I just couldn't resist tweeking things here and a fanfare (of kazoos).....ladies and jellyspoons, may I humbly present in it's 2008 look. If you remember the old site things aren't that different. I've just 'run the duster over things' here and there. Hope you like what you see.

IF (Mr.) Punchline

Short and sweet for this weeks IF post, that's the way to do it!

I've been working on a spring clean of my website for the last few days, hence the lack of posts. I hope normal blogging service (whatever that may be) will be resumed ASAP.

just one more book logo illustration

This is illustration for the request for logos for their site redesign. It was a fun quick brief to do and it's nice to help out interesting sites when you can. Pop over and check out all of their childrens book reviews if that's your kinda thing! It doesn't really show up very well but that's scanned text from a novel (Mobey Dick in fact...) to create the texture on the book loving octopus/alien type thing's skin. I liked the idea of words from the books manifest in the characters look... not that visable as I said, but I know it's there at least :)

Just dawned on me I seem to have had quite a run on hour glass shaped heads, octopi and orange things... have to go in a new direction or I'll get boring!

PS. many thanks to for posting my illustration and a link.

IF "Baby"

Not having kids myself this is very much the stereotypical view... so Pete and Helen, have I got it right ?
