I have a new pet project. If you would like to point your browsers towards www.cowboysandsailorsandskulls.com you can have a look at it.
I should explain a little bit. I love drawing - i’m an illustrator, so that much is obvious - when I’m not working on projects for paying clients I’ll be scribbling ideas for personal works. Quite often these naturally fall into collections - half narratives that don’t tell a story but progress from each other.
It has become apparent that there’s not really enough room on my porfolio website for all of these drawings, and broadly they come more under a heading of art (or even comics) than illustration. But what to do with them? They have no real purpose other than being illustrations of things that interest me, but they’re some of my favorite drawings I’ve worked on.
Well having clicked through, you’ll see that they are going to be collected under the header Cowboys & Sailors & Skulls (named for some of the recurring elements in my work). At the moment, it’s enough that they are out there in the world, but the idea is to collect some of them in zine form (as I have with Cowboy Versus Indian available here), and eventually a nice big book of pictures that you can periodically flick through.
So there you go - expect updates as and when I complete them. Some will be additional drawings for projects already in there (the Matador set has a few more to come), and some will be new (including at some point The Loneliness of the Long Distance Luchador). Hope you like!
