Drawlloween Part 2

New batch of drawlloween drawings coming right up!

Day 6 Haunted House

Drawing Dr. Gregory House being haunted still counts right?

Day 7 Bat

I remember I wanted a pet bat as a kid.

Day 8 Amulet

This one ended up a lot more sinister than what I intended to… Poor bunny.

Day 9 Werewolf

A little throwback to the 80’s.

Day 10 Frankenstein

Frankensteins monster is probably one of my all time favourite monsters to draw!

BTW

The Halloween competition Im holding is still going on. Follow this link if you still haven’t entered, and want to win some sweet zombie merch 🙂 HALLOWEEN COMPETITION!

Halloween Rat

I have gotten a part time job in a store selling costumes, decorations and novelties. And seeing how Halloween is not more than a month away, the store has been decorated from head to toe with pumpkins, ghosts, vampires, spiders and everything “Halloweeny”. Seeing how working in such an environment has kind of rubbed of on my mind lately, I felt like drawing something Halloween related.

So I ended up with this pumpkin hating crazy rat.

Is there anyone else looking forward to Halloween already?

Ballpoint Pen Portrait

Recently, I finished a private commission where I was supposed to draw portraits. I am not a big fan of drawing proper portraits, but I am pleased with the end result. Not sure if I felt like making it extra difficult for myself or wanted to try something new, but for some reason, one of the portraits ended up being drawn with a ballpoint pen.

Photobucket

Good to know that I did have use for those slow days at work, with nothing to do, other than practice drawing with ballpoint pen on post-its. I am now wondering when I will need my awesome paper plane folding skills :p

The grudge painting

I am still working on this piece, but seeing how I have not updated this blog in a while,       I thought it might be nice to share something with you guys.

Photobucket

It is a portrait of Toshio, the freaky kid ghost from the Grudge movie. He is one of my favorite scary movie monsters, and I am pretty sure I would have died a little if I ever saw him in real  life. So I decided to paint a picture of him, and hang it up on my wall.

Not so sure about hanging it up anymore though, after seeing how my 6 year old little brother reacted when he found it… Come to think of it, he kind of had the same facial expression as Toshio in this picture :p

Not sure if I’m gonna paint a new horror monster picture, but if I did, any thoughts about which horror film monster it should be?

PS

A little update on the Patron saint poem illustrations. My old dogs drawing got picked, and is currently being featured on the cover of this month’s edition of
Snakeskin poetry webzine!

pin-up in a glass

Every once in a while, I enjoy drawing anatomically incorrect women. In fact, I don’t think I drew anything else when I was a teen… So luckily for me, that was just the kind of drawing my friend Lefki wanted for her birthday.

Hope you like it Lefki!

Arcadia

I am really excited to tell you about the newest project I am working on! As most of my friends, and maybe some of you who read my blog knows, I LOVE horror films.

So it is nice to be able to work on one!

I am currently making concept art for a horror movie named Arcadia. Not much has been revealed about this film at the moment, but if you want to check it out, and keep yourself updated, you should like Arcadia on facebook.

Here is a piece of concept art I made that was revealed when the facebook page hit 100 likes.

Cant wait to share some more drawings and news about this project 😀

Branching out

So, this one is kind of old, but I have not uploaded it here before. Since I was graduating this year, we were supposed to have a box with some small books with some of the students work in it. We were supposed to come up with a design for this box that would work for all the courses in general. So here is what I did.

Photobucket

Inside the big box, there would be one box each for illustration, graphic design, animation and photography. Those boxes looked like this.

My design suggestion did not get selected, but it did get a few votes, so I’m happy 🙂

Fred´s Fake Sideshow Display

So I am finally done with my degree, and I can call myself an Illustrator now:D The degree show went great!

Since I have not uploaded any pictures of my display before, I added an extra photo of it. I am sorry about the quality, but If any better pictures of it turns up, I will change it 🙂

And here are a few short descriptions of the objects hanging in the display.

I am really going to miss being a student in London.
