The furthest I ever got with a caricature of Matt Smith as The Doctor

Back in 2009/2010 (can’t remember when), soon after Matt Smith had been cast as the new face of The Doctor, I thought it would be a good idea to do a fansplurge of a caricature, and this is as far as I ever got. I wanted it to have a dark and ethereal quality, but it ended up more brown and muddy, but I think it’s a good likeness at least.

Also, here’s a special version with the contrast whacked right up so you can see it better.

I’d like to finish it properly someday, but I’d have to go back and fix some of the drawing.

Jimmy Stewart from Mars

I love David Lynch movies! Mel Brooks once described him as ‘Jimmy Stewart from Mars’, that’s a real fact, you can take that to the bank, building society or credit union. This picture isn’t quite a caricature, it’s not quite a proper depiction either, but I like it enough to put it up here for you to peer at. My favourite part is his lovely hair, like silver waves.

You can see my old signature on here. I’ve since changed it to a simple Hall, because that is what I am.

Little Shop good luck cards

I made some good luck cards for the rest of the cast in Little Shop of Horrors too, depicting each character as a bloodthirsty venus fly trap. I should note that the cast members in reality are lovely people and not bloodthirsty venus fly traps at all. Artistic license and that. Clickedy-click for a closer look.

 

I also did a little Seymour plant thing for the inside of the card too.

Little Shop of Horrors image

I was in a production of Little Shop of Horrors back in 2012 and I made this image to share on Facebook, mainly for my own gratification. That’s me in the photo (not the one in the plant pot.) I didn’t actually create all of the elements for this image but I stuck them all together in photoshop myself.

We Will Remember Them programme

This poster/programme design for the West Yorkshire Drama Academy was designed to evoke feelings of melancholy and nostalgia to complement the refugee-themed drama. This programme cover was the same as the poster design with booking details omitted.

Victorian Christmas Market poster

The Totally Locally Cleckheaton group asked me to design a poster for the Victorian Christmas Market they were holding at a local pub. The drawing is of the actual pub itself that I copied from a photo, but I added the snow myself.

Reiver Media logo

Reiver Media is a film production company started by some of my friends from the University of Westminster, and here is the logo I designed for them. Apparently, Reivers were mounted raiders that crossed the border between England and Scotland back in the middle ages, pillaging and looting and tickling people.reiver-logo-final

Cleckheaton Pirate Day 2013

Ahoy there! The Totally Locally Cleckheaton group put on a pirate-themed fun day back in August 2013 and I made this poster to help them publicise the event. One thing I learned from this job is that pirate ships are very very hard to draw, so I didn’t.

Wonder in Oz programme

My first job for the West Yorkshire Drama Academy (WYDA) was designing the programme cover for their production of Wonder in Oz, a play in which Alice from Alice in Wonderland finds herself transported to the land of Oz! I was forbidden from using red in the image so the toadstools look particularly dangerous. I made the Emerald City out of bottles and organ pipes!
