This is the back layer (left) which will make up one of the two side panels of my Merzbox project, when assembled. So there will be the larger main image in the centre and the two side panel images attached either side of this. The image on the right is the middle layer added onto this.

Pencil crayon piece created as an entry for the East Midlands 'Where Art Meets Science' competition, centered around the issue of bees and highlighting the importance of their existence (attempting to depict the impact of their decreasing numbers and raise further awareness of this.)

This is the third (and hopefully final) draft/rough showing the composition and conecpt for the 'Spam' advertising brief. (I need to modify the astronaut character still so that the finished piece will have a better (I hope) spaceman instead of a skydiver/mod/stuntman!)

The outcome for the party scene part of the characters project...
Here is the final illustration- with all three layers included, the third of which has my two child characters dressed up in Day of the Dead face paints and one also wearing a skeletal costume as is sometimes done during the festival. The dog is supposed to be confused by what the humans are doing and why they are acting so strangely! The top layer still needs to be refined, and especially cutting out closer to the key-lines, to be able to see more of the background characters and trees, and the overall aesthetic be more effective.
Here's the second and first layer together, for this one I decided to use a combination of styles/ media for the trees as had been done with the characters- to attempt to make it more (or in a way less) coherent in order to incorporate the characters into the setting, convincingly as a complete piece.
I changed the two male characters slightly in order to form a mariachi style band for the guests entertainment. The trees are cut out text from old books, and I hoped the simplistic straight text trees would provide a contrast for the brown ink trees in the distance.
