This artist ad­dresses his il­lus­tra­tive short­com­ings in his sketch­book.

Nap Lady

“I had this idea to draw a fig­ure ly­ing down. Af­ter a brief strug­gle with the per­spec­tive, I man­aged to come up with some­thing I was sat­is­fied with.”

Astro Re­union

“I’d been watch­ing lots of space rock­ets doc­u­men­tary and wanted to draw an as­tro­naut re­turn­ing from a space mis­sion and greet­ing his fam­ily.”

Room Sketch 2

“I made this piece last year. I didn’t in­tend to add colour, but as I was sketch­ing I was in­spired by the morn­ing light out­side, and de­cided to stay at my desk and colour it in.”

Ninja Squads pose

“I re­ally love the ninja genre, and anime re­ally in­spired this sketch. Nin­jas per­form­ing the nin­jutsu hand seal fas­ci­nate me, be­cause I re­ally like to draw hands and fin­gers.”

Teen Nerf Duo

“I wanted to draw a comic as a per­sonal pro­ject based on these char­ac­ters solv­ing mys­ter­ies. This would be for ei­ther a splash page or a pos­si­ble cover.”

Im­pe­rial De­mon Po­lice

“This was in­spired by Owari no Ser­aph, a manga about an Im­pe­rial po­lice force hunt­ing demons. I love the de­signs in the se­ries and wanted to come up with some of my own.”

Hik­ing Pho­tog­ra­pher

“This is a char­ac­ter who I meant to use later on in my per­sonal pro­ject. This piece is one of the few that I felt the most re­laxed as I’ve sketched. The pose and feel­ing for this art­work came nat­u­rally.”

Room Sketch

“I find it easy to sketch a char­ac­ter in their en­vi­ron­ment – es­pe­cially when the ref­er­ence is all around me!”

Earth De­fense Force

“I com­bined Ul­tra­man’s squad and a SWAT team vest for this char­ac­ter. I wanted to draw a fe­male char­ac­ter who’s pre­pared for a fight.”

De­mon Shinto Priest

“This char­ac­ter was in­ter­est­ing to draw, with all the com­pli­cated knots and folds in her clothes.”

I’ve been told that I draw women like they’re men, es­pe­cially their faces…

Fe­male Train­ing

“I’ve been told that I draw fe­male char­ac­ters like they’re men, es­pe­cially when it comes to their faces. So I’ve been work­ing on that, al­though I’m not find­ing it easy…”

Fight Poses

“I sketched this a while back, to prac­tise draw­ing a be­liev­able fight scene. I don’t think I’ve nailed it yet, but I like the feel­ing I got from these poses.”
