Personal work

Meet Vanessa!
I wanted to create a curvy pinup that explores dark skin, a dark background, and low light, but with vivid neon accents. She was a lot of fun to work on!

She's not based on anyone in particular - she's all original.

PS - this pic is best viewed on a dark background.

You can see some of the steps (and a bunch of other stuff) on my Patreon page:

Doris diner

Personal work.

Meet Doris!
She's a 1950's American pin-up gal inspired by the art of Shane Glines and Gil Elvgren, and Disney's 'Paperman' short film - 3 of my favourite things!

I plan to do a bunch of illustrations featuring her in different vintage outfits and scenarios.
Concept / design by me.

Monster Meg

Monster Meg - personal work

Meet Meg and her monster truck!
Ive wanted to do a pinup involving a car of some sort for a while now, but never found a fun, unique and non-corny way to do it - until now! Why a monster truck? Because they're badass!

Also - i'm now on Patreon! If you support me, you get access to a lot more of my work in progress images, tips, higher resolution images and other goodies.

Xavage Xtreet Xisters

Personal work.

Meet Foxy, Roxy and Toxy! I created these 3 street-fightin' badasses as a homage to late 80's / early 90's videogame beat-em-up characters (Streets of Rage 2 is probably my all-time favourite game) and corny VHS movies.

Design / concept by me.

Neat & Shiny

Personal work.
Neat & Shiny are twin sisters - each with very different personalities!
Neat is introverted, bookish and ordered, Shiny is extroverted, glamorous and a free spirit.

Design / concept by me.

Kyary Pamyu Pamyu

Personal work.

I'm a big fan of Japanese pop star Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, and I was inspired to do this pic of her, featuring an colourful outfit and aesthetic of my own design.
It has a mix of traditional Japanese elements like Noren curtains, Shinto robes, temple bells and ropes, Happi coats and Shide paper streamers, all mixed with the modern idol style and vivid decora culture Kyary is known for.

As well as her imaginitive music videos, I used many photos for reference, like these:

Marielle - summer

Personal work.

Another picture of one of my favourite people - my friend Marielle.
I tried to make it more stylised and illustrative than the last one I did, and make it a full body one with a narrative as well. We both like similar music, and the last time I saw her was at a music festival, so I figured I'd do a nice summery one with a festival setting.

You can check out Marielle's painting work here:

Here are some photo references i used for her outfit, pose, setting and face.

Here is the previous portrait I did of Marielle back in 2013:

Angular Annie

Personal work.

I have always been fascinated with tangents, angles and alignment in illustrations of the human form, and I wanted to try and create a pinup full of these things, inviting the eye to explore it.
It was a challenge, as I forcibly restricted myself to just 4 angles, and tried to make as many things as possible echo and align with other shapes across the figure.
I chose a photo of the model Marie Devilreux as a starting inspiration, and ended up with a homage to the Bettie Page style retro pinup look. I did it entirely in 3Ds Max with flat, layered polygon shapes.
Special thanks to Maria Picassó - Illustration for her inspiring great work and advice!
