Geoffrey's Leap Illustration

This is another Jersey Folklore illustration based on Geoffrey's Leap in St Martin where a convict had to jump off a rock to his death who succeeded in surviving his first attempt but died on his second after spectators encouraged him to do it again.

Robert Burns Poster

This is a poster I done for my uncle advertising an event celebrating the poet Robert Burns in New York. This is continuation of me using Photoshop. Really good getting back into this sort of stuff!!

Saint Helier - Saxon Pirates

Now that I have temporary Photoshop, I can go back to a process I enjoy doing which mixes brush pen drawings on its own with photoshop creating another way I can do these illustrations. This is of the saxons running towards the hermitage rock before killing the saint.
This is more experimental work.

Saint Helier, the Hermit monk

After a good couple of months after Uni, I managed to get myself a photoshop trial which lasts for 30 days. This illustration is of the tale of Saint Helier, the hermit monk who lived off Jersey before being murdered by saxon pirates.

The Jersey Lily

After ages of not really drawing, I have got back into it again, slowly but surely.
These are some quick brush pen drawings of the beloved Jersey Lily.
