The Chemistry issue of TeacherPlus magazine arrived, adorned with my brightly coloured cover illustration!
I decided to do a speedy-ish Seven Years in Tibet front cover to test some different brushes and new textures I’ve accumulated. Pretty gentle image, as they go, but the pace of the book is pleasantly languid. Lots of nice reference images of Heinrich Harrer and Peter Aufenschnaiter to work from, too.
Working on a cover for TeacherPlus magazine. I’ll reveal more as I can (which will be ages - it’s the June issue. It’s yet more science! In fairness if I could illustration science and tech only, I’d probably be pretty happy.
I still need to draw more women, but my homosexual brain doesn’t seem to like that idea. MENS.
A quick preview of the Viking Warrior tattoos piece I’m working on. Apparently they were covered, head to toe, in dark green tatts. Researching this has been great - they had a really interesting way of combining runic elements and other designs to create new meanings. Nobody knows what they actually look like, as there are no known Viking mummies/dry preserved bodies, so I get to make it up as I go.
Also, it’s excellent muscle anatomy practice, and cuts and bruises are great fun to draw.
A little segment of the cover for the Science Festival (pending another round of critique and approval, but hey, that’s my job). Fingers crossed for this. After a month of work, this is a two-day redesign!
