Starting final draft imminently.
Monthly Archives: July 2010
Just thought I’d include the initial pieces which kicked off my venture back in to drawing. I did these in Oct/Nov. ’09, and they’re already looking pretty embryonic in comparison to the Clutch shirt and new stuff in the works.
This artwork was brought to you with help from the following kind tunes over the past few months:
Alice In Chains ‘Black Gives Way To Blue’
Black Mountain ‘In The Future’
Bolt Thrower ‘War Master’
Cathedral ‘The Guessing Game’
Dillinger Escape Plan ‘Option Paralysis’
Dead Meadow ‘Dead Meadow’
Dio ‘Holy Diver’
Focus ‘Hocus Pocus’
Fucked Up ‘The Chemistry Of Common Life’
Goblin Cock ‘Come With Us..’
Godflesh ‘Us And Them’
Tentacle ‘The Angel Of Death’
The Ganja Kru ‘Super Sharp Shooter EP’
Trap Them ‘Sleepwell Deconstructor’
My good friends and inspiritors Clutch commissioned what I consider my first ‘real’ hand-drawn shirt design. I’m honoured that they asked me, and thoroughly enjoyed working on it. By a fan for the fans!
It’s also available to buy from Clutch’s online store.
Here’s the initial sketch:
Hello all, Jimbob here. I’m an illustrator and musician based in Bristol, Uk. I figured it’s about time to get a more active portal for my work online, and have gone blog-nkers in my persuit of an easily update-able site. I’m still a n00b, so am currently wrestling with themes, formatting etc.
I’ll shortly be uploading current and recent illustrations, sketchbook excerpts and words from the battlefield that is my brain. I plan to keep a steady flow of new work on here, once I tie up a few more web design projects.
My digital design and illustration folio is still residing at drunken-marksman.com. You could call this site the ‘Phase 2’ of my artwork trajectory. While I still use Photoshop in combination with my Wacom, I’d like to consider my re-utilized love of drawing as a truer reconnection with my artistic origins. Godmachine said I got “spellbound by that vector shit” and admittedly I have begun to find it a limiting medium.
So I hope you enjoy what you see. Do pop by again.
