I gone done made an animation

Check this shit out. It has moving parts and everything. Probably won't make any sense if you're not familiar with Metal Gear Rising's plot, but - you're going to enjoy it anyway. Or else.

Oh! One last thing - I set up a page on Redbubble, so you can now buy Tshirts that I have digitally scribbled on. Click this sexy promotional banner to see my page:

I should be updating it with new designs pretty soon, so keep an eye on it.


This page was looking a little decrepit, so I decided to spruce the place up with a colour change and a nice new banner image. Look how the banner Image glistens and sparkles with awesomeness! (If it’s not glistening and sparkling, your monitor is probably filthy dirty, rather than there being a lack of awesomeness on the image’s part).

Anyway, might as well throw some artwork at you, now I’ve got you gawping at me.

More Brindle Blog illustrations:

Both are somewhat sexually perverse. For this, I ask that you blame the articles they were designed to punctuate. You know I would never draw something unsavoury of my own volition, of course!

Oh, and here’s some character designs I did for a friend’s student magazine. I’d link the ‘zine, but it was print only. Ah well:

 I’ve also been sketching some pictures for music site Crack in the Road:

The first is a depiction of Justin Beiber signing Anne Frank’s diary, for an article written about how historical figures could take inspiration from today’s pop music scene. The second image was for a post entitled ‘five things you could waste a fiver on’, shamelessly plugging CitR’s (now) monthly live show. You can follow the Callum Booth, the writer of both articles, on twitter - @c_r_booth.

Lastly, I threw together a compilation of the banner images I made for the Eurogamer front page when I was doing work experience there. Not very arty, but it showcases my photoshop skills I suppose (careful, it's a big file):

Though it may not look like it, most of the images have been quite heavily photoshopped to make them look good in that aspect ratio. So, basically, CHECK THIS OUT POTENTIAL EMPLOYERS.

So recently I've dabbled in this thing called 'traditional art'. See, i hadn't heard of it 'till recently, but apparently you don't use Photoshop and - get this - you don't even use a computer. you just smear liquids over paper like some sort of mentally challenged child who's developed an unhealthy fascination with their various bodily discharges. Though once I'd gotten used to this (frankly prehistoric) mode of expression, i think i managed to churn out some vaguely passable pictures.

These two i made for my girlfriend with watercolours. if you can't tell, they're of Withnail & I and Fassbender's sex addict character in Shame, respectively:

And these pen illustrations are currently adorning the wall of my houseshare living room. the middle picture is of Alice Glass (of Crystal Castles), while the bottom-right one is a landscape of submerged tower blocks in a future of rising water levels, though it doesn't really come across well without colour.

The Grimes one is my favourite though. The weird images which surround her are all derived from her own artwork - anyone familiar with the Canadian music producer will recognise them from her various album covers. I actually kind of think she's a genius, though i guess that's neither here nor there.
