This year looks like it's going to be  a fun one :)

A few months ago, I took the plunge and made my most personal demon available for sale.

Stephen has been with me for years and although he was a menace in the beginning because he's the only one of mine to give me nightmares, he has become part of our household. It's an odd concept, selling your dreams but that's what we do isn't it ? I knew that if this one went, I'd want another at home so it would encourage me to get on with new images.

To help with this, a model was made to scale so that I would have something physical to start with. As you can probably imagine, figuring out lighting, perspective etc is very difficult with such an elusive subject but this way I could try out new poses and take photos of the ones that looked to be most fun.

I've printed out half a dozen already in black and white and it's really spurred me on. The first drawing of any new monster is an anatomical study so I tend to draw them side on in isolation. Now I've done that I can start drawing him as I see him out and about......worrying thought that :)
