These are a selection of images created over the last few years. I don't tend to produce that many still images these days, but I like to design artwork for albums and have always been interested in logo design, as I greatly enjoy working with lettering.

Sittingbourne Swords

Logo design for my fencing club, featuring the Sittingbourne wyvern, created from a photograph, using a an extruded spline. Sketch and Toon was used for final render here, as I felt the artwork would look better on printed materials. A monochrome version with dark blue lettering also exists and is often used on forms and the like.

Young Sounds

Logo design for my company, Young Sounds. Originally set up as a 'record label' for children's music, it now forms an umbrella for my various pursuits. This design has evolved from an earlier and somewhat simpler effort, created using an application, called
Pixar Typestry.

Rip Roaring Records

Logo design for my label, Rip Roaring Records. I've gone for a retro style with this, as it reflects the nature of my main musical style (psychedelic rock) and visually compliments it well.
