Lester the Basset - Children's Book Character Design

As some of you may know, and others may not, I have a bit of an obsession with short-legged long-eared creatures called Basset Hounds. So much so I now have one I call my own, who happens to be much more popular on instagram than I. His Instagram page is called Lester the Basset and he is nearing 13k followers fast: https://www.instagram.com/lesterthebasset/

Together with my girlfriend, we post stories and pictures about him, and I wanted to both celebrate and cartoon-ify him with this 'cute' illustration. Eventually, I plan on making a children's book starring my saggy boy, lots of ideas floating around my head, it's just a matter of picking one and completing it. 

For now, you can enjoy this drawing and the promise of the idea of a story to be:

And the real-life version:

Caesar is Home

Having recently watched Dawn of the Planet of the Apes I wanted to give a cartoon treatment for Caesar. The Ape that makes you wish you were on the simian side. The movie is spectacular and makes you believe that an ape can shoot 2 guns while riding a horse and take down a tank without questioning the cheesiness.

Also if you're interested in this as a print, on a mug or tote bag, etc. check out my Society6 account for this and many other art pieces: http://society6.com/product/caesar-dawn-of-the-planet-of-the-apes-cartoon_print#1=45

Sherlock TV series illustration

Made this Sherlock illustration for my Girlfriend, she's obsessed with Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman in Sherlock. I figured I should share it with the world world as well. Hope you all like it!

A GTAV illustration I made to celebrate one of my favourite games.
