British Phonographic Industry Award

A strange text popped up on my phone today, informing me I’d be getting a delivery from ‘Award Framers’. I had no clue what this was about but as predicted, the package arrived and I opened it to find…

Wow! I was genuinely shocked!  A British Phonographic Industry Silver Record Award.  I don’t tend to put too much stock in awards but I just held it up, staring at it, smiling but completely baffled!

I don’t know how these things work, whether the BPI always sends these out to whoever is credited with the artwork for the record, or whether the band or management create a list of people they felt contributed to the record’s sales, or whether I’ve just been presented with this by mistake…?

All I can say is I’m sincerely flattered to receive such a thing and very pleased that the artwork is considered to have contributed in however small a way to the success of the record.

As I have said before, I’m proud of the work I put into this, especially since it’s an independent release. The Public Service Broadcasting guys are decent, thoughtful people and deserve every success.

Hollywood Cougar

A few months back, a private client got in touch and commissioned me to create a piece of artwork just for them and their partner.

They were very specific about the colours they wanted, as well as composition and style. The subject matter is a secretive cougar called ‘P22’ which lives in the Hollywood hills and is usually only seen by the scientists that track him. A photographer got some amazing photos a few years back which were the inspiration for the client’s commission.

Anyway, after some back and forth sketches, this was the end result.

Original drawing done in brush, pen & ink and then coloured and arranged digitally.

Printed as a 60x50cm posh digital print, a signed edition of just one, now framed and in their home. A fun piece to create.
