I thought I should introduce you to my new character. This is Ned the Robot. He's just a tiny cute robot, who does cute stuff. I wanted to come up with something a little more simple and cute than most of the stuff I've been doing lately, not to mention he is a character that is completely my own. Its great fun doing designs based on cool stuff by other people but sometimes its good to see how people like stuff that just comes out of my brain! :)
So far I've managed to make quite a few Ned greeting cards which are available at my GreetingCardUniverse and Redbubble stores as well as a range of Ned gifts and homeware stuff at some of my other stores, including Redbubble, Society6, BoomBoomprints and Zazzle.
You can also get your hands on a completely unique, handmade Ned the Robot greeting card at my Etsy store. You just tell me what you want Ned to be doing or saying, and I'll draw up a special birthday card just for you.

|Howl's Moving Castle Sketches on Etsy.|
On to the art now though. I've been getting actual pens and paper out a bit more often recently. Its a nice change from a mouse and graphics tablet, you connect with the picture in a whole different way. Not to mention the whole, get it right first time or live with your mistakes thing. There's no undo for a marker pen after all! Howl's Moving Castle is probably my favourite Studio Ghibli film. Everything in it is just beautifully drawn. If that doesn't inspire you when you are sitting with a sketchbook in your hand you have no chance. So I gave in to temptation and drew a few of my favourite scenes. I had to put them up on Etsy as there's only so much room for keeping things in my house. Which means you can head over there and check out, Howl and Sophie, the Moving Castle and Turnip Head in more detail.
|I've got a store on Neatoshop now!|
Finally I have some good news coming up soon, so sign up to my newsletter to keep in the loop. The next one should be going out around June 6th 2014 so get signed up before then. There's a chance you could win an original sketch by me with absolutely no more effort than putting your email address and name in a form.

|On second thought, lets not go to Camelot. It's a silly place.|
So here is a Monty Python design for you. King Arthur and his band of adventurers off on a mission to retrieve the Holy Grail. They aren't really as cool as the guys from Pulp Fiction, but regardless I thought they would look pretty good in this classic movie poster pose. They certainly are off on a mission that goes horribly wrong and has unexpected consequences for everyone involved though.
This isn't the only Python design I've done you know. You can find Bicycle Repairman, The Larch, Stop That It's Silly! and Basil's Fury over on Redbubble or Society6.
Camelot Dogs is available at Redbubble and Society 6 on a variety of cool stuff including T-shirts, phone cases, greeting cards, posters and even Mugs.
I also now have a Doodle Dojo Stores at Design By Humans and Teepublic where you can get a selection of my designs. I'll be adding more all the time, but do ask if you would like to see a particular design at a particular store.
