This months prompt for the Posca Artist of the Year competition is ANIMAL. Rather than be predictable and just draw a worm I decided to draw a worm in a bear suit.
Last week a year since the first lockdown was marked with a Day of Reflection. On the whole I've made the most of lockdown by launching the Korp Academy but I remember how I felt back then when everything was at risk. I produced this piece to show my feelings.
Not everyone is into a 2 hour live stream so here are my last two Twitch streams shortened to 3 minutes. Find me on Twitch every Wednesday at 8pm.
I originally created this piece as a way of playing with the new deep Posca colours to see if there were any new colour combos worth using but I quickly fell in love with the vibrancy. I dont often use a lot of different colours so this is quite a unique piece.
At the moment I'm a big fan of drawing on cardboard and using colours to bring in the background logo. You can see it in action here on some MTN packaging. Colours are from the Posca deep range.
Check out my Twitch stream while it lasts to see how this piece was created.
I recently set up a profile on Twitch so I could broadcast a little more. I enjoy doodling with company so this felt like a good way to do that on the fly. Find me here.
My first stream was to try out the new Posca colours and let you know what I thought of them.
I'm very pleased to be a finalist for the Posca Artist of the year January vote. There are 20 finalists Tto choose from and its dead easy to vote to vote for your favourite.
The prompt for January was FUTURE and my piece below represents that theme through the use of colour which is how I plan to finish my future Korpworm art.
Painted a frame black. Placed a few favourites in it 👇
Silently Winning Battles
My good friend Daniel Wilson posted a shout out specifically for all those who keep their darkest moments private. In his post was the line "you've been silently winning battles and transforming yourself" and I liked it because in this age where it's ok to talk about your feelings there are a lot of people that still dont.
This one is for you.

I'm not a Prick...You're a Prick!
I've just added a quote to this piece I did last year that I think really suits it!
This was based on a piece I did for Inktober. The prompt was CRUEL and I wanted to show how cruel the mind could be. The shadow (blackworm) being the manifestation of mental illness holding onto you and stopping you from moving forward. The palms are up in an attempt to fool with an "I'm fine" position.

These came about after the 2019 Inktober prompt and I've enjoyed drawing them ever since.

Some People are Trans.
“In times of crises, those living in the margins suffer the most”
#TransAwarenessWeek feels like the right time to share my solidarity with the trans community. Here I've used the iconic Stonewall poster as a backdrop for my latest piece.
