MS Seapunk

I showed Mrs Potts once before, but did I show her neighbour's yacht? (Both designs are for a children's production led by writer and composer Henry Muldrow)

Usually, I start drawing small sketches of the character / vehicle / bg I'm aiming at. Then I continue with sketches in the final scale.


  1. I can't help it. But this is so "nine old men-ish"! Wow.

  2. I am proud to say that I LOVE YOU work to the core! Your photo's of sketch through to finished art are wonderful and so inspiring! Thank you and keep up the most excellent work!

  3. I just wish my screen was big enough so I could take it all in at once… but then my head would probably explode!

  4. I really dig your steam punk works. They are so cool and inspiring. This one and the most recent sky rider... really trippy and cool. I love the futuristic junk yard feel they have.

  5. Very very nice.
    I Love your character.please take a look at my blog:
