This is slightly off topic from the majority of my blog but I’ve been training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu now since about 2000 and in one of the few crossover moments between my interest in martial arts, and my interest in illustration I have been shortlisted for the Tatami Fightwear “Crazy” gi design competition. If I get the most “likes” for my design then my gi will be custom made for me for free!
If you feel like doing me a favour, please go here and “like” my design!
One of a new series on personal hygiene.
I’ve been wanting to get a tattoo for a while so during some downtime today I drew a possible image for one. It still needs a little work but I’m quite happy with it.
I’ve been trying a few new things the last few days, i’ve posted them on my tumblr account but I think a post on here is in order. All using creative commons images from flickr, mainly from “The Commons” (collections of images from institutions like the Smithsonian).

A little preview of the cover of an upcoming fanzine I’m working on, the skateboard will be a photocopy and the foot will be a gocco print over the top. More to come as it happens.

Well here is the result of my first attempt at printing with my gocco. I think the mistake I made was putting the lines too close together so they’ve bled into each other. Printed onto a slightly grey envelope for mailing out promos, I only printed 10 of these because they didn’t come out amazingly well so I’ll be making a new image for the next lot!
