Millington Associates Nike Models

To continue from my last post about the Nike commercial, The Last Game, I found out last week that the Nike store on Oxford Circus has larger than life models of the characters I designed for the commercial instore! 

The company that are responsible for the wonderful work are Millington Associates and you can view the work they did for Nike on their website along with all the other great projects theyve done. 

I've pinched a couple of their photos to show you here :P

And some shoddy photos I took myself like a nerd...

And it also made the Metro!!!

Nike - The Last Game

Pretty exciting! At the end of last year, I got to work on the character designs for the new Nike commercial that's just been released and I've been given the OK to share the designs with you lovely people! 

You might recognise some of the characters here but there's also some other designs and characters that didn't make it into the final film.

It was a lot of fun to work on, as it's not my usual style. Tough work drawing muscly men all day but I guess someone's gotta do it *sigh*

True Story

I saw this guy on a holiday in Budapest. We were in a local Hungarian etterem and this dude was supplying the entertainment. He may have been the fattest man I have ever seen with my own eyeballs but damn he could play that gee-tar.

What's your New Year's Resolution?

Aside from the good old exercise, eat less crap and be a better person, what new year's resolutions have you set for yourself? 

It's probably pretty obvious from this post that one of mine was to go back to life drawing at least every other week. So on the first Monday of the new year, there I was in my old life drawing class! It was great. It's kind of like when you go to the gym after months on sitting on your ass doing nothing. It was a struggle to go after work but you feel better for doing it afterwards. 

If you saw my previous blog post, you'll know that I started a new job and although it's great I won't be designing characters very much so another promise I've made to myself for the new year is to keep up the personal projects which I've also linked with ANOTHER resolution to read at least a book a month. 

So watch this space for some literary inspired character designs! Hopefully...

Merry Christmas blog-o-sphere!

Hello everyone! Apologies for the silence since CTNX but I'm sure you're all in the same boat that it has  just been crazy busy on the run up to Christmas. 

I stupidly decided to make all my Christmas presents...so between that and a new job I've have no time to post anything new...actually, no time to even draw something new! 

Yes! New job! I'm now working on the new Mr Bean: The Animated Series as an Art Director for all of 2014. It's gonna be tough but a great learning experience and hopefully I'll be even more motivated to keep up the character design in my spare time  since I won't have a chance to do it at work. 

So I will see you all on the other side of the holidays! Refreshed and ready to design like a boss! 

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all!!!

New Character Sketchbook!

 Yey! My new book is now available to buy from my Etsy store! 

I put this book together in preparation for CTNX back in November and luckily it seemed to go down pretty well. I managed to sell all the books I had taken with me (aside from the ones I used for swapsies!).  

Now Ive ordered another load in, so those of you who were interested but couldn't be there at CTNX can now grab yourself a copy on my Etsy store, just in time for Christmas! 

It's full of lots of new designs as well as some old ones, zoo sketches from my time in Paris with Joe Weatherly and life drawing sessions from work. 

You can also treat yourself to a little bundle dealio of both my books to save on shipping!
