Album Cover Artwork.Remember: The City is my Friend.

Here's my cover illustration for the highly acclaimed album
'The City is my Friend' by Remember.

I felt extremely honoured and privileged to be asked to supply the artwork
and design for the popular Vaporwave artist's latest release. Remember and
worked very closely together on the development of the design, which is
packed full of cryptic symbolism and iconography which all relate and
correspond to the album's themes, concepts and tone. 

The City is my Friend by Remember is available on the artist's bandcamp page.

Inktober 2017 Reveal (better late than never)

Happy New Year!
As you can see, it's been quite a while since I posted anything on here.
I must apologise. I'm very sorry. The second half of 2017 turned out to be incredibly
busy on the art front and I'm afraid to say that my Lostappeared blog took a back seat.
But not not to worry, it is back. Hooray!
So, carrying on from where I left off, here is the complete set of my inktober 2017 drawings.
Admittedly, I had set myself quite a challenge. A sheet of A4 graph paper was divided into thirty one areas, one for each day of the month. Every day I drew a section of a self portrait from life, posting the results on Twitter and Instagram on a daily basis so that followers could see the developments. Drawing straight on to graph paper forced me to be very selective, especially as I was drawing in ink. It was incredible hard to gauge how the whole piece would finally fit together, but somehow, it did. 
Here are all of the results building up to the final piece. Enjoy!
