Dream Solver: Main Characters

Introducing! the main chracters of the Graphic Novel i'm currently working on with Luke Foster.
'Dream solver'
Me and Luke had a good meeting today. going through the script, panels and all that jazz! the script is made me happy to be part of this! from just the first chapter the story is alot of fun and some good old detective work in there!
currently planning layouts and scenes. keep a sharp eye some panels or sketches may be leaked on here if i'm allowed.
meanwhil i leave you with the chracter concepts of 3 of the main chracters. from left to right. Ione-Rose Young, Jacob Young, Dannielle Carter.

I will have some coverage from my 'Warhouse' Set visit. it was amazing and theres so much to tell! meanwhile check out Director Luke Massey's Blog he's got a few things up there already!

Warhouse: On Set ,Day 2

This update is set to day two where as i am actually going through day 6 of my being on the set.
To say the least it has been beyond great to be here. straight to work with everything. the inevitable string of delay on the first day but still....its all good. for me the highlight is to see the creatures Ben, Luke, Myself and Gayle have been trying to create for nearly a year come to life and act out how i had imagined them to act! i've seen some of my work come to life before but not first hand and nothing as impressive as this! full Kudos also undoubtedly go to the chief Seamstress of the film Lynsey for not only making the body of 'The Fallen' but for doing it under the turmoil that the film under went for a brief period! o another note of achievement and personal pride for my partner i crime, Laura shes been scribbling away at the journals featured in the film with sketches and dialog. not an easy task by far! Ben and Luke were thoroughly impressed with her work!
anyway after day 6 i am in need of a wash and then back to work!.

Just thought i would put up some of the panels for the subject matter of my recent painted work.
i didnt have to do it and it wasnt intended to go with the work in the gallery. just a little practice and fun with a little short story.

Warhouse Storyboards: A Sneeky Peek

What a week. setting up for the Free Range Show in the Old Truman Brewery was harder than i thought it would be, i was able to get some extra work up inthe show but alas i had to go through a mammoth journey on the hot sticky tubes of london with 2 big paintings by my side getting in the way of all of the other passengers who where claerly already irritated enough by the heat of it all.
in the end the show went up and it turned out nicely. i had to deal with my short amount of space by altering the layout of the newer paintings but i think it worked. but i leave that judgement to the feedback i get later on....
Meanwhile behind the scenes and the inbetweens ive been hard at work planning the storyboards for warhouse and making a shopping list for going on set. i'm going down on the 9th for two weeks so i'll have abit of a photo documentary of the days working on set.
the images ive attached are some sneeky peek sketches for the Warhouse Storyboards.
