New development

I am very proud to announce that circa February 2015, I will be a new father! I made this illustration as part of our "facebook announcement", now a 21st century convention it seems.

Sketched on paper and "inked" in Photoshop. The fetus was around 17 weeks at the time (now 18!). Obviously I used image refs of other people and ended up using a range of 15-20 weeks. This wasn't intended to be a very accurate illustration, my self-brief was a fun and appealing "medical illustration".
I've been requested to make the illustration into a series as the fetus grows, but we'll see what happens; I may be too busy with other projects which will be revealed soon.

  1. I love your baby's first portrait!! I've been drawing my baby as it grows- starting around this stage- but to scale, as best I can. It's been really fun to watch the baby grow as successive sketches are pinned to my wall at work. I totally encourage you to do it too, although probably you'll spend more than the 3 minutes I give myself for mine ;) -Allison G.
