Liam Smith




Yesterday i did a collaborated shoot with the photographer Ruth Ellen Brown. We met up with the model Liam Smith in Huddersfield and wanted to do some urban street scenes. The weather wasn't too cracking, cloudy and raining slightly which caused a few problems with locations. Between us we chose a few locations with textual backgrounds with the hope of working in black and white and working on the definition of texture. Liam has an edgy editorial style to his modelling and worked his hardest to get the shot right for us :) I hope to work again with him in the future. This was a challenge and very insightful. I got the chance to work with another photographer and collaborate on ideas for locations and poses. Also good for having another point of view. I also got a chance to expand my portfolio and work with a male model, to give abit of a change to my usual female models. The weather also challenged me to work harder on my camera settings making sure i could get the best out of the model under the circumstances. All together fun was had :)

Heavy Lies The Crown

Heavy Lies The Crown is a hardcore/metal/mosh band from Durham UK. When my friend Charlotte (owner/ creator) of Charlie Cakes Cupcakes mentioned to me that they had a logo competition running, i jumped at the chance of having my logo on the band's merchandise. So today i spent illustrating this image.

lion skull


I've been recently drawing animal skulls between projects to hopefully exhibit and sell. This is my third image using uniball eye pens and a dotting technique I've been using for a while. The original image is stronger in detail than the scanned image. I would like to continue doing a few more of these and may even push myself to try out a portrait in this style. We'll see how it turns out. I've recently got a christmas temp job in a music and dvd store- which is keeping me inspired with all the artwork around me and has led me to a few ideas for new projects and competitions for the future weeks :)

Fun pet photography


Tigerprint had a competition on for Fun Pet photography to be produced on Hallmark cards. These are the photos i entered. I love the top one of Wilf my friend's dog who you may have seen earlier in this blog. The other photo was taken after a trip to Newquay zoo last year. Both images made me chuckle and had a reason for choosing them. If you would like to see the other entries, you can follow them here

The Big Skull Collab

Today I've been working on a submission for "The Big Skull Collab" which is featured on the Dead Fuzz blog. The Skull outline was illustrated by James Fenwick and then given out to illustrators/ artists and designers who were interested in illustrating the skull for the online based magazine. I've really enjoyed working with this as it's pushed me to think of new ideas to go with the image put out in front of me and hope to collaborate with more creatives in the future. Thankyou to Hannah Brown who let me know about this and follow the link here to see her gorgeous submission- it'll make you hungry!
