JJ Abrams Star Wars / Star Trek Caricature Portrait

JJ450l

This is a self promotional piece caricaturing movie director JJ Abrams, director of the recent Star Trek movies and of course the forthcoming new Star Wars film. As well as JJ, I also did the same for Joss Whedon (Avengers, Firefly) and Zack Whedon (Watchmen, Man of Steel, Batman v. Superman). They were a lot of fun to do, I hope you enjoy them!

ICON9 Education Symposium: Call for Papers
Academic and professional submissions are invited for peer review for ICON9: The Illustration Conference taking place in Austin, Texas July 6-7, 2016.

Radical Teaching; New Approaches in Pedagogy
Symposium Date: July 6-7, 2016

The ICON9 Education symposium seeks to explore ways in which educators can effectively address the myriad changes in the methods of teaching, creating and delivering illustration now and in the coming decades. Digital technology has not only rewritten what illustration is and what it will become, but it is drastically changing how art and illustration will be taught and learned.

Call For Submissions
An open call is made for contributions that broaden the understanding of how illustration is changing in the classroom and in practice. Unusual avenues of practice and enquiry are welcome, including both theory and practice-based researchers, academics, illustrators, painters and artists.

2015-04-09-18.20.13

If you missed Showcase 100 in London last month, you missed an amazing exhibition! Don’t get too down about it though, you can still get a copy of the book. The book as of today is now only £8.99 instead of £12.99, yippee! Also for those that that weren’t able to make, Hire an Illustrator (our show partner and sponsor) has done a fantastic write up to fill you in on what you missed.
