…and Lazy Dog.
Scraperboard illustration in a woodcut style which was used as the logo for Quick Brown Fox (typesetters and pre-press company in Manchester, UK). It was based on a colour painting by another artist, whose name I don’t know.
It was done in my first years working as a freelance illustrator. Back then, if anyone asked “Can you draw wildlife?” (or virtually anything under the sun), I’d answer “Sure!” and worry about how I was going to do it when I got back home with the brief and the purchase order.
Apologies for the intrusive copyright notice. I’d prefer a lighter touch but I’d like any rip-off merchants there might be out there to have to work for their ill-gained goodies.
This is a blast from the past. An ink and wash illustration commissioned by Commodore Format magazine in the early 1990s.
I illustrated many “Roger Frames buys Budjit Games” for the magazine involving the penny-pinching antics of Roger, who acted out his computer game role-play with disastrous consequences.
Working with Ollie Alderton, the art editor of Commodore Format, on Roger Frames has to be one of the most fun things I ever did.
