Definitive Guides

OK well to get the ball rolling here's an image I completed recently as a book cover for The Yorkshireman's Definitive Guide to Extravagance.

The style is intentionally kind of doodley and loose - all created in Flash this time - just because the drawing tools are so easy to use to get this kind of look. 
I use a range of tools but mainly Illustrator, Flash, Corel Painter and occasionally a stick on a sandy beach.
Different tools lend themselves to different styles - to see the broad range of styles I can create why not have a look at my cartoon and illustration portfolio.

Updated Websites And A New Blog

I've being working pretty much flat out over the last few months on Illustration and Cartoon work for myself and I realised that both the JotStudios site and my own site, have got pretty out of date. So it's time to relaunch with some updated designs and more importantly include some more recent cartoons, illustrations and animations in the portfolio.

In terms of techie stuff - I've been playing with lots of the jQuery tools recently and am using those on my home site. They have some great effects for image fading and portfolio tools - I recommend having a look.
