I'm finishing up the suits comic and did a little doodle which turned into this. Suits is a lot of figures so it was nice to do heads. I think I may use these guys for next weeks story.
Love this band. This is from their forthcoming album.Vomit
Here's another rough panel from Suits. I've done 4 pages and will finish the other 3 today then inks and washes.
Sticking with yesterday's instrumental them I've picked Max Richter today. This is a much shorter piec but devastating in emotional resonance. Stop for a minute and give it your full attention. Beautiful.
This is the title frame yet to be inked and painted for the suits story. I'm going to try and finish the whole thing and then post it.
I fell in love with the music of Keith Jarrett a few years ago when I heard the Koln concerts. He's an amazing pianist who's in London this Wednesday for a gig which I missed getting tickets for :(

Encore at Sapporo - Keith Jarrett
Another study for Suits.
So I heard about Amy Winehouse on Saturday and was really saddened by the loss of such a talent. I saw her play live at the Shepherd's Bush Scala, where she was brilliant and also at Koko in Camden where she wasn't so much.Love is a Losing Game
So yesterday I was working on a short story called Suits which I'll put up next week hopefully. These are some studies. So for a while now I've loved the music of Lorn. His album Nothing Else was amazing and heavy. This is a track from it. Cherry Moon
Hey all. Sorry that I didn't post for a coupla days. Busy. Won't do it again. So I did this pic of Freddie mercury a few days ago. Was watching some music show and he was on it and looked young and cool. Here's one of their greats.Don't Stop Me Now
A page from a leetle comic I did. Will put it all up once I've made a few changes.
So The Horrors have already released a couple of albums. The second contained Sea within a Sea which was amazing. This is from their new album Skying and is called Still Life and is also excellent. Very Psychedelic Furs.
A couple of nights ago this was on TV. I didn't realise it was co-written by James Cameron and then I heard the dialogue....
Listening to an album by SBTRKT while I cycle in to the studio at the moment(I know I shouldn't wear headphones while cycling but I'm a bad boy) and loving it. This track is called Wildfire
So as it's Friday you get two for the price of one. I was messing around with some brushes in PS so that's why they look like that. Here'a great tune from the new Bon Iver album called Beth/Rest It's a bit Michael Mcdonald but good for it.
This bunch of sketches is called chicks with books. I think it'd make a good wallpaper design.
So I'm really much liking this band called Inc (previously Teen Inc) as they sound like early Prince in a big way but with the vocals down in the mix with makes it more emotional somehow. A cut from their ep called Swear
A page from my sketch book that I did last night. So on another note, is anyone watching Game of Thrones? I AM LOVING IT.
And look, I've added a mediaplayer so you can listen to my tunes from this page! Woo hoo. First up this tune from Africa Hitech. Tells you all you need to know about the distance between the Earth and the Sun. 93 Million Miles apparently.
It's a hot day. Why don't you get an ice lolly and ride that monster!
Read Vera Brosgol's Anya's Ghost book yesterday. Can't recommend it highly enough. Her illustrations and storytelling are wonderful.
So this is line art for this monster girl. I've done a watercolour version that I'm not 100% happy with so will have to redo. I'll post it once that's done.
Something I'm listening to loads at the moment is The Weeknd. Their current release House of Balloons is amazing and well worth a listen. This is the first track High for This
