#1hour1sketch ‘Monsters’

Cthulhu A4man

Inspired by the sketch dailies on Twitter I’ve decided to set my own Twitter challenge with the emphasis on sketch, meaning you’ve got a maximum of one hour to make a sketch based on a set topic. The more rough and sketch like the better, pencil and paper encouraged.

It was great fun and many other Twitter folks have joined in now too. If you have a Twitter and want to join in on the silly fun just add @1hour1sketch on twitter as we have another challenge coming up.

This weekend’s topic was ‘Monsters’ with only 30 minutes max to spend on a sketch. Above is my half hour doodle of Cthulhu.

Beyond Gravity!

Beyond Gravity Poster A4man

Currently working with Qwiboo Ltd creating artwork for the video game ‘Beyond Gravity’. It’s a joy to work on and fantastic seeing all my illustrations come to life. The above illustration is concept art for the game and below is a screenshot. It’s in very early stages of development but should be released early next year for Windows, Mac, Linux, Mobile, iPhone and ipad.

BG 01

Please support the game on Steam Greenlight by giving it your vote. I believe there will be regular updates so a follow is also appreciated.

‘Year of the App, What’s your Avatar?’ Notebook design.

year-of-the-app-a4man

Technology is advancing at an impressive rate. Tablets and mobile phones are becoming more user friendly and accessible to all age groups. They are the current source of information and entertainment. You can look up much needed information, play video games or watch TV, but these aren’t usually possible without one thing, an app!

There is an app on your phone or ipad for almost anything but social networking plays a big part. You are encouraged to share high scores in games, share the current film you’re watching or just generally announce to all your friends and family what’s on your mind.

It’s an exciting year as 2013 will see the start of the new generation of gaming consoles being released. According to early announcements, the main advancement with the new consoles is that they will make use of social interaction and this is their big selling point. It’s now easier than ever to play with your friends online or compete with strangers across the world. With gaming you can customise avatars that others playing online can see. Some are as simple as your favourite games others you can personalise and they essentially become your online persona.

This is what I have tried to reflect in my design, which shows two people interacting using apps on their tablet and mobile phone, their appearance representing their gaming avatars. The people stand back to back absorbed in their own worlds, yet their avatars happily interact in the virtual world. Anyone can find an app to suit them.

Thanks to my twitter followers who replied to my questions regarding their favourite apps and avatars.
