It was my first time creating an illustration for an animated movie. While the illustration came out pretty good, under the little time frame I had to create, I was slightly disappointed with my concept and that it looked more like a promo image than an illustration, without a style that's a bit more of my own. But I come out with a new challenge I'll be willing to tackle in the future. Besides that, the balance (and explosion!) of colours has me feeling happy regardless.
This was the opening weekend for Inside Out, has anyone seen it yet? Any thoughts?

This isn't what I had initially planned for my Chappie illustration. In fact, I had something quite elaborate in the making. But a new life project has blown me off track (shrinking my schedule overnight) and I simply couldn't achieve my first idea within the deadline. So I went in an entirely different direction that would allow me to create it within less than 24 hours. Not quite what I had envisioned (with Die Antwoord as part of my subject, I was sad that I wasn't able to go as overboard as I'd liked). But it allowed me to go back to simple sketching, which is something I always love to do.

I'd heard of the movie The Voices about a year ago when it was submitted for Sundance. The premise of the film had me intrigued and anxious to delve into it, even though I didn't seek it out until much later. I've got to admit, I'd completely forgotten about it; having not heard any news of it until it was recently brought up on Slash Film podcast. I adored it despite horror cult genre not particularly being my thing (dark comedy on the other hand...). It was a movie which surprised me and in my opinion, became one of Ryan Reynolds' best acting gig to date. I decided to create a little illustration for it depicting his beloved house pets and the twisted yet comical storing of his decapitated victim.

A couple of weeks ago, director Billie Mintz got in touch with me to design a poster for his latest documentary called Jesus Town, USA. It's a quirky little movie I've whole-heartedly enjoyed with a cast you can't help but fall in love with (particularly the loveable 'new' Jesus, Zack Little).
It was important to us while creating this poster that it evoked an eccentric yet respectable feel. We didn't want it to fall into a clownish territory, where it looked like we were poking fun at Christianity, the Passion Play or the community involved but rather a fun, comical approach to a town's long-time tradition that brings them, and visitors, much joy. I believe Billie & I were able to put together this whimsical aspect quite nicely, just in time for his first festival entry. And it's definitely a plus that the cast seemed to respond very well to it.
It's been a thrill working with him and I can't wait to see the success of his hard work upon entering festival season.

Kingsman : The Secret Service is not a movie I would habitually rush to illustrate. But I'm super happy I went along with this wonderful challenge (plus I got to sketch Colin Firth. Win!). It was my first assignment as contributing artist for Never Ending Radical Dude. Now that I've finished this illustration by its opening weekend, I'm thinking I'm going to go watch this part Kick Ass part James Bond movie!
