maxwellpepper asked: Hey man, just discovered your work, really cool stuff! Just wondering, that series with the plane, boat, legs, and truck with painterly strokes: is that all digital or real media? Thanks!
It’s completely mixed - underlying sketch was on paper, I added some perspective lines in photoshop, printed then painted a lot of it and then re scanned, scanned more paint bits I drew/painted and adjusted all the colours in photoshop.

shutupnroll asked: Just wanted to say how totally awesome your work is! Thanks a lot! Keep it up!
Your a dream. Thanks for the support and kind words!
philryndalifedrawing asked: Wow. I LOVE your passenger jet piece. Do you ever sell originals?
I haven’t sold many as I kinda like keeping em - but I may look to setup a store within my website later this year for limited prints and originals. Appreciate the support!

protectbigpizza asked: I was just fortunate enough to have seen some of your work. the ghost, the reaper, the rock and the hops in particular is brilliant. are you planning on doing more pieces like this? i get such a kick out of anything that's japanese inspired with a sense of humor.
Might carry on with this series further down the line - it’s purely personal work so it comes in between jobs or in my own time which is not easily found sadly. I am and often work on other jobs with a similar japanese inspired elements - I’m sure there will always be a good amount of it around as it’s some of my favorite art :)
adding asked: mind blowing
Thanks, appreciate the kind words!
breastsidestory asked: How much and to what extent do you use reference images for your illustrations?
Differs for each job - Naturally some jobs or subjects require more accurate results but for the most part I’ll gather some anatomy ref’s (nude study/anatomy drawing) if drawing people, gather style refs of things I like (anything from patterns to clothing, type, colours etc) and use these as rough refs.
