I am a professional illustrator, providing illustration for books, magazines, posters and (rock band) merchandize . I also storyboard for film, tv, video games and tv ads. Teaching is just something I enjoy doing. More about what I can give, rather than what I can take.

JANUARY-MARCH 2014: WEEK 9 and 10. END OF TERM REVIEW
I am really pleased by everyone's progress this term. Everyone was so productive and pushed ahead to new levels.
So, in no particular order or favouritism, here is a review of your progress this term.
Wow! you were unstoppable this term.
Good composition. You have got the lighting spot on.
Nic composition on the two below.
So glad you added the darker tones to this piece. It has made all the difference. I hope you will continue to have the confidence to give your work this extra lift.
Three examples below show your adventurous spirit in trying something new with new materials. Keep this up.
More completed work from you this term , which is good as it shows you are deliberating lass and getting on with it. There are times when deliberation is a good thing (as long as it doesn't grind you to a complete creative standstill) but when you are trying to develop your confidence, just getting stuff down on paper is the main priority.
The same goes for you as I have just written for Gavin. Get the ideas down first then experiment with the lighting and solids after. Also maybe try some really loose sketches that you don't feel to worried about spoiling and practise throwing slabs of solids or tone just to get used to the idea of rendering your work more 3 dimensional
Not as much finished work form you this term but in the work you produced I could you confidence in use of lighting , tone and solids developing in a very positive way. Good work.
A very god first terms work from you. For my money, your animal drawings are your strong point. Excellent stuff! Your figure work was coming along nicely too. Overall, you definitely show a lot of promise.
When you got down to it you really worked hard and fast. Figure work is also developing nicely.
Not a smuch completed work form you as I had hoped for but yout develpoment is solid.
If you can focus on finishing some pieces I think you will find it rewarding. You have a lot of good ideas , they just need some focus.
I am really pleased with the work you have produced this term. Excellent stuff.
I think that you definitely have ability , I just think you need to develop your confidence and just go for it and have fun. Don't measure your progres and successes by other student's progress. Don't be afraid to be yourself on paper. I think you have some cool ideas to offer.
Hey, guess what?
I have a new book out soon. you can preoder it here.
