Fat Cat. I have always been interested in drawing certain animals. i love drawing the fur so they look fluffy if you touched the paper. The weirder or significant aspects of the animals such as the cat being very large make the character more interesting. With all my drawing at some point i would like to create some illustrated book bringing my funny animals a story.

I love the way old people sit, the emotion in there faces and the wrinkles
on there faces showing the long lives they lived and what they went
through. Besides my dad that i usually draw (though younger) i generally
find older men on chairs interesting to draw.

Near the end of my HND course in 2012 I wrote a fictional story. I enjoyed collecting the information and writing the story. My illustrations had a story behind them but the emotions were shown in the drawings without the need for words. Sylvain Chomet and Sean Tan influenced me greatly in this way of working.

A lot of my favourite illustrations are the ones with mystery.
This little creature is a cross between a cat and a fox. We are
drawn towards the white window. What is inside there, what
is he looking at? I guess i created something that the viewer
could interpret themselves.
Sometimes I just draw whatever come in my head whether or not anything
goes together. I was sitting at my desk looking at my paint pot and thinking to
myself how weird it would be if there was such a thing as tiny talking animals.
Is the little squirrel trying to push the paint pot into the whirlpool?
One of my favourite buildings in Edinburgh... the above one is a rough sketch and the below one is a larger final I'm working on....Much more detail than the sketch which is actually smaller than my hand. I sometimes end up liking the sketch more as its free and less careful and neat!
