Koumpounophobia

Fear of Buttons 01

For a number of years in the early noughties I produced a weekly illustration for The Daily Express to accompany the 'doctor page' where each column discussed remedies for particular medical issue. While thinking back to those times recently it occurred to me that button phobia, or koumpounophobia to be precise, had not come up. If it had done here a couple of new illustrations I would like to have supplied.

Confessions of a Tabletop Canoeist

Confessions of a Tabletop Canoeist

I'm not entirely sure how this image originated except to say it came to mind during an idle moment, unconsciously - my favourite way:) It was then a case of quickly realising it on paper (or screen in this case) before it evaporated. The look was attempting to combine surrealism with the the feel of the past.

Vegas Seven: Nip & Tuck

Nip & Tuck

Ben from Vegas Seven got in touch and asked if I would be interested in doing a cover for them on the subject of plastics and electives ((plastic surgery and aesthetics to you and me). They were not looking for a typical plastic surgery cover but were thinking more along the lines of a vintage Sci-Fi like take.

From the off the description and subject matter gave this the feel of a dream job. Having said that it is a sensitive subject and so I wanted to avoid anything too repellent but at the same time was looking for something thought-provoking. I came up with this image which felt about right. The sketch was well-received and after a tonal version was worked out it was then a case of choosing a nice colour palette and producing the final (click sketches below to view).
