BBC Primary History Website.

Last year I helped in the redesigned of the BBC Primary History website, yesterday after a long wait the website went live. Above are just a few of my illustrations that are used on the site.

You can see the website here: www.bbc.co.uk/schools/primaryhistory

Also if you look at the time line here you can see my illustrations in beautiful 3d effect, programed by Wolf at Luecker Interactive.

Blue Hare

Another experiment with a more limited pallet, this time yellow and blue. The green is where the two colours overlap. I think is some ways for this to really work the image needs to be simpler, perhaps this is what I will try next.

one colour experiment

This is an experiment in a restricted colour pallet, and Victorian typography. I've been looking at a lot of old music sheet covers on line and this was inspired by them. I'm hoping to find the time to do a few more pieces in a similar vein.

Brand New Website Site

I've redesigned my portfollio website at www.smallmoonvalley.com I've added new work, and a nice new title page. Hopefully everything should display at a larger size now, as I think the images on the older site were a little small.

Ship In A Box

This was an idea I'd had for a while, I just needed an excuse to do it. (My mothers birthday present). I'd like to go on and make some more now, the most difficult part was cutting out the shapes which are printouts, glued on to mounting board, and then mat varnished. The mounting board is incredibly difficult to cut round even with a very sharp scalpel blade. I'm thinking I could use some sort of foam based product, that would be easier under the knife. Any suggestions greatly received.
The image was inspired by the folk song The Greenland Whale Fishery.

This is a self initiated piece, you probably need to click on it to view it larger as it doesn't really work too well scaled down.

Another snippet from my on going comic project, I was lucky enough to have some time before Christmas to work on it. This section is about my ancestors who lived in Mackworth a small village just outside Derby.
