Amy Winehouse

1983 - 2011

This is a caricature I did of Amy Winehouse a few years back ... her recent death at 27 years of age is nothing short of tragic ... a sad time for her family, friends and fans.

Comic Football Issue 1 cover artwork


The Final Artwork


The finished comic (with a few more changes)

Cover development


Earlier this year I was hired to paint the cover art for the launch issue of Comic Football. The concept was a parody of the opening couch scene of the show The Simpsons featuring Premiership League football players.
It was great fun to do and we made quite a few changes along the way but the final artwork turned out brilliantly and I'm very proud of the result.

Corey Taylor Roars ...


This is my rendition of Slipknot and Stone Sour vocalist Corey Taylor an amazing vocal talent from beautiful, melodic ballads to throat rupturing roars of rage, this bloke can do it all.
I know this won't be everyone's cup of tea but he's a subject that I've wanted to paint for a while, I'm a massive fan and I just couldn't resist that huge neck.

Thanks for your time.

"Well, that's another fine mess you've gotten me into ..." Oliver Hardy Caricature






Norvell Hardy aka 'Babe' aka Oliver Hardy. While I was looking for a reference image for this picture I watched a Laurel and Hardy short on You Tube ... and then another ... and another. I really got caught up in the ... ahem ... "research" I had forgotten what absolute comedy gold Laurel and Hardy were, complete genius.

Celebrity caricature - Stephen King


I was literally doing back flips when I saw the subject matter of this weeks Caricaturama showdown 3000 on facebook: Mr Stephen King. I am a massive Stephen King fan, I have pretty much everything he's ever written and loads of books about him and his craft, I'm sure that if he published his weekly shopping list I'd run out and buy it . I'm not quite in the Annie Wilkes (Misery) area but I don't think I'm far off.


When I was about 10 or 11 years old I came across a library book that my Dad was reading, it was just sitting on the side, no dust jacket just a dark blue, scruffy looking hardback book with the words Stephen King and 'Salems Lot' on the spine in gold lettering. I picked the book up,it was not mine and nothing to do with me I was already on dodgy ground. It was big and heavy, I opened it ... page 102, The Marsten House, Danny Glick and others and read ...


I was terrified and thrilled, wanting to throw it away and read the entire thing all at the same time, I had no idea such things existed, Christ we were doing 'Janet and John rub noses' or something similar at school ... that was it, I was an immediate fan and as soon as I was able to talk my Mum into letting me join the adult library I became an avid reader and still am to this day. If you've never read his work, go out to your libary or local book shop and pick up a copy of Salems Lot or The Shining and read ... but keep the lights on, you don't want the shadows or the darkness creeping up on you ... because they do, was that a noise outside the window?

Personalised gift caricature - 'The running man'





A recent gift caricature commission of a gentleman who is the member of a running club. The spec for the caricature was simple "...tongue out. Maybe a shoelace undone, basically, when he runs, he always looks knackered!" and this is the result.
