The new book  The Thackery T. Lambshead Cabinet of Curiosities edited by   Ann & Jeff Vandermeer is due out soon and it's featured on IO9.

I've done four pieces for the book (one featured above of an automated nanny) which will be featured alongside art from Mike Mignola, Jan Svankmajer and others.

It's a compilation of short stories about an unearthed range of artifacts, curios, and keepsakes and is written by authors such as Alan Moore, China MiƩville, Ted Chiang, Garth Nix, Naomi Novik and Michael Moorcock (amongst many others).

Shit - what a clever bunch of bastards to be in a book with!
I feel all smilish just thinking about it.

The Bestiary of the Cosmos Part 1

Here's a few space critters I've done over the years - most featured in my book Victory from Darkhorse and  on the Dr.G website

Alien design is one of my favourite things to do in concept design, and creating beasties for Dr. Grordbort's is the most satisfying of all.

If you haven't seen them before, check out our Dr. Grordbort's Bestiary of the Cosmos Weta collectibles sculpted by Jamie Beswarick

 Here, here and here!

More to come.

Module - Angry Little Machine

Module has just released a new single - Angry Little Machine, and I did the artwork for it.

Super fun song and super fun to do artwork for.

This was one of those natural illustrations to do - Module's incredible music just makes these kinds of images pop into your head.

Thanks to Jeramiah for being a choice cunt - dude is permanently dialed to 11!

Flamosaurs are extinct, long live the Phlogistosaurs!
"What's the evolutionary difference?" you definitely just asked in your head because you read that sentence.
About two ambling, booze filled, Call of Duty interspersed days of illustration why thank you for asking! I also played Osmos on Iphone during tea breaks.

With a bit of spare time over the holidays, I decided to spruce up the quick Flamosaur sketch that I did a few weeks back.
Now it has way more brush strokes.
It was like I was having a brush stroke contest with myself.
Thank god there was also some interspersed perusal of pornography to give my arm time off.

The close up of the head is at the original pixel resolution.

It's like looking directly upon the original illustration for your very own self..... holy ghostly fuck crime, pray for mercy upon your eyes.
