Along Came Mary

I've been working alongside the hugely talented design team over at Frank to develop a character for recruitment consultancy 'Along Came Mary'.

With her retro look and feel, Mary wears a gamut of garments and accessories to keep her fresh and exciting, and was based on a paper dress-up doll. She appears on the Along Came Mary website, along with other business related collateral.

Illustration Friday - Explore

This weeks Illustration Friday is Explore.

I wanted to explore the inner thoughts of my deep and meaningful brain, but instead, looked straight in my sketchbook for inspiration. I spent up to 3 hours a day sitting on the Tube last week, and drew heaps of people, vaguely looking like they were deep in thought. Most of this weeks experiments however were actually more to do with colour* than anything else.

I'm quite pleased with the lighter line-work, and darker background colour along with the white on black main focus, which I think I'll be injecting into my new project - an animated short film about coffee. Watch this space.

*I just realised how similar this colour combo is to Heinz Baked Beans. Mmm, maybe thats the real reason I like it...
