How to Draw a Man

Another piece for Flow Magazines weekly, this one is ‘How to Draw a Man’ for those of you that don’t speak Dutch here is a translation.
1 This man loves the great outdoors, so to keep him warm on his adventures he has a beard. To draw a beard start with a colour wash in the shape of a beard and then add small hair lines to create texture, then make add a small moustache under the nose.
2 Real men like to smoke a pipe. This is how to draw a pipe, A tip is to either use a grey wash or a pencil scribble to create the smoke.
3 At night he likes to build a fire to keep warm, so he carries an axe for fire wood. This is how to draw an axe.
4 His favourite outfit is a scruffy check shirt. To draw a checked shirt use a colour wash and add black ink in a check pattern, then add some darker squares to create the flannel look.
5 Everybody knows dogs are mans best friend, this mans best friend is a Border Collie who is both loyal and hard working

Flow Magazine

This is 1/2 'how to' illustrations I have done for Flow Magazines new adventure, a weekly notebook featuring loads of cool stuff, released today in all magazine stores across The Netherlands. As always it was a complete pleasure working with Flow, the brief really tapped into my love of the great outdoors and I got to practise my hand drawn type on a foreign language.

Greek Myths

I love being an illustrator but every now and then commissions can get a bit repetitive and I don't feel like I'm flexing my artistic muscles, so I find it helps to take a break and do something for myself. As a kid I used to love tales and movies based on Greek Myths, I find they're incredibly visual stories and really tap into the little boy in me with their tales of warriors vs monster its easy to see the influence on modern day comics. The top one is from the story 'Jason and the Golden Fleece' when Jason battled the dead army, the second is from the story in which Theseus battled the Minotaur in the Labyrinth. Both these stories scared the living crap out of me when I was a kid, so I decided to stick with a simple black and white platte to add a creepy atmosphere, plus it was a good chance to practise my brush skills.
