Bad Cover Version

Actually this is the best cover version I came up with. It's just a Pulp song. It's off We Love Life. The single was pretty big. Remember? Fine, here's the picture. Jeez.

Concordant with my expectations

Just finished this this morning, as both an experiment in doing pencil line caricatures and using a number of blocky hand-drawn elements stuck together on the computer (example: the frames, initials and wallpaper were all just blocks of black on the original page).

I'm disappearing for a couple of weeks to do a show in Edinburgh. If you're reading this blog, I suppose you know already, but if not, CLICK HERE! And yep, that's my poster there. Once I'm back I'll post the artwork for it and another Edinburgh show I helped with such design stuff.

Before I go, here's the first in a series of experiments in design I'm going to do based on Another Drawing Of La Roux I did. A man wiser than myself once said that the best thing for a young artist looking for work to do is "grab an NME and get sketching". If you wish to commission the artistic services of Thomas Crowley Esq. then murble mumble yeh?

Prepare to Meet your Marker

About a year ago I bought a bag of Letraset coloured markers.

Then I put them away again because I was afraid of wrecking my drawings with my inexpert colouring-in. Then recently I remembered I had them and started experimenting. Here's a page of the results.
Yeah, that's her from La Roux. She has good hair. The other guy's hair isn't as cool.
