Last year for each of my friend’s birthdays I made them a bespoke flavoured-alcoholic treat, with custom packaging. Each was unique and the two above were personal favourites of mine.

Herd of Goats Yelling like Humans Greetings cards

I’ve just updated my shop with some new yelling goats cards - Click here for more information

I don’t often write much about my working process, but here’s a one off run through with a few process shots…

My inspiration for this card came from the following:

1. Goats Yelling Like Humans - Super Cut Compilation.

2. The Divided Self by R. D. Laing - book cover design

All of my work starts off as a loose unrefined sketch, much like above.imageI then blocked out the main shape with black, which I later retouched and recolored digitally.image

Using gouache I then painted some flora and vegetation, these were later scanned in and layered digitally over the goats.image

I’ve been drawing a lot of goats recently. This is a small spot illustration I did for a section in a festival program about growing your own veg.

Just got back from Lisboa this week. The “oceanario” was probably one of the highlights. Not only because of the abundance of sea-life, but also because of this amazing tiled artwork. The individual tile designs were inspired by the tiles ubiquitous to that region of Portugal that can be see across the facades of buildings all over Lisboa.

Saw the Great Lake Swimmers on Saturday at Start the Bus in Bristol. They were touring with Dusted, another awesome Canadian band. It was such a wholesome gig!
