I was fortunate earlier this year to work on new artwork for the band Sham69, and it looks as if the new album is about to be released to the public according to the official website : http://officialsham69.com/NEWS.html
Was a lot of fun creating this nostalgic type of artwork for the band. The direction they gave me for the artwork was “think of the film Escape to Victory”, and I just took it from there! Click on the above to view the original artwork.
It’s been quite a while since I updated my website! Sorry about that! I’ve been really busy this year with different projects and have neglected to blog the things that I’ve been doing.
Since the last update I’ve had two ImagineFX magazine Q&A columns published earlier this year and late last year, and I’ve been working on quite a few non-fantasy/sci-fi related projects. When I get more time I will post a few of the newer artworks I’ve been working on.
I’ve added a new video, which is in fact an old video! It’s the first timelapse painting I posted on youtube but the difference this time is that I created the audio track so the copyright is fully mine. The finished picture is already in my gallery but you can watch the video by clicking on the picture above.
A short time ago I was asked by Chris Poore and Alan Lesser of rock band Winters Veil to come up with a cover to cover piece of artwork for their debut album The Storm Awakens. I already knew Chris from a previous band Crimson Altar as I painted the cover for their album The Ghost Ship Sails, so it was good to work with him again, and with Alan too. The guys had definite ideas of what they wanted so it made my job a lot easier I must say.
The Album is already available for download, with the CD due to come out very soon. I definitely recomend you checkout their site and have a listen to some great tracks.

Not too long ago a friend of mine asked me if I could do something for what he called a “Reem” Party! He told me what he was looking for and I created a painting of a dancing girl for him to use for his companies marketing.
It so happens that my friend works for the Sugar Hut Village night club in Brentwood Essex, and the very same club is heavily featured on the ITV show “The only way is Essex” a pseudo reality program.
I’ve never actually watched the program, but I’ve heard enough about it to ensure that I continue on that course! However I wont object if my picture appears on TV sometime (someone will have to tell me if it does).
Bill Corbett’s artwork on TV! That hasn’t happened since Blue Peter in 1978!! Shutuuuuppppp!!!

I was wondering what happened to the publicity artwork I did for Sham69, and found a couple of samples on their facebook page (the official one). I’m glad they put the caricatures I did for them to good use!
