Commission: Dragon Eggs


Here's a clutch of Dragon Eggs that I was commissioned to put together for Waterstones in Dundee:

Dragon Eggs

Constructed out of polystyrene and coated in polyfilla before getting a good sanding and painting, they stand roughly six inches tall and turned out quite nicely and were used as part of a How to Train Your Dragon egg hunt in the shop and are being given away as prizes.

They were a bit of a rush job but turned out rather nicely!

All the best!

Commission: Rusty Robot Pirate


It's been a while since I posted anything but here's a couple of pics of a robotic pirate I was commissioned to make a while back:

 Shiver Me Timbers!


For ease of transport and for a bit of variety, I made his hat removable and as a well behaved and mannered pirate bot, he usually removes it when indoors.

I will be posting some more bits and bobs soon so keep your eyes peeled for some egg themed goodness!

All the best!

Discworld Portraits


Here's a selection of portraits of characters from Terry Pratchett's Discworld that I was commissioned by Waterstones Dundee to celebrate the release of the final Discworld novel:


 Granny Weatherwax

 Detritus The Troll

 Susan Sto Helit

 Samuel Vimes

Nanny Ogg

I must admit I really enjoyed drawing them but am rather saddened that this will be the last Discworld novel!

All the best!

Pirate Event Illustrations


Here's a selection of pirate portraits I've been commissioned to draw for a Pirate Activity Day at Waterstones Dundee:

William Kidd

 Edward Teach aka Blackbeard

 Bartholomew Roberts aka Black Bart

 Anne Bonny

 Sir Henry Morgan

Ching Shih

All are based on real historical characters and it was great fun to draw such an array of villainous scallywags! Most folks will have heard of the first five but the sixth, Ching Shih may not be as well known but she was possibly the most successful pirate to ever have lived (look her up HERE to find out more!)

The event is on from 10am this morning and runs till 6pm so if you are in Dundee, head along and join in the fun!

All the best.

Mural Making!


Here's a couple of quick pics of a mural I was commissioned to paint in the Waterstones St Andrews store:

 A Dragon!

I must admit that I really enjoyed painting on such a large scale. It was really time consuming but turned out rather nicely, even if I do say so myself!

All Sorts of Gubbins

I have a sneaking suspicion I may nip back in and add a few more little creatures and stuff on to it over the coming weeks but if you are in the area, please do nip into the store and have a peek!

All the best!

Here's some quick pics of a trio of Dragons I produced for Waterstones Bookshops in Fife and Tayside!

The Striped Menace is in Waterstones Dundee 

 The Emerald Rivetback (Plus Hamish McHamish) is in Waterstones St Andrews

The Troll Chomper is at Waterstones Kirkcaldy 

They are all being given away as prizes to celebrate the release of the new How to Train Your Dragon book and movie so if you are interested in getting a bit of original artwork, nip in to any of the three stores and ask a member of staff!

All the best!

Rusty Robotic Minion!


Just a quick update to show some pics of my newest commission, a custom Red Robotic Minion!


Standing almost six inches tall and a striking red colour, he's inspired by some of my earlier Rusty Robots pieces but scaled up a bit. I went to town with adding all manner of scuffs, scratches and grime to give him a rather worn finish but he was worth the effort!

Unpainted Progress!

As always, I am more than happy to take on commissions so feel free to get in touch if you fancy a robotic minion of your own!

All the best!
