Willie O'Dea In The Heat Of Battle

Willie O'Dea is a Limerick man and former Minister of Defence for the Irish gov, but resigned recently over a recording 'scandal'.
He also pulled a strange photo shoot for the press a while back, and one dark evening, during elections, he and some of his 'representatives' knocked on my door and assured me he 'represents the area' and 'knows where i live' should i 'need anything'.... i've kinda been endeared to him ever since that.

Update: This illustration has now been published! Info here.

The Gorilla

Don't afraid. He only eats graps...

One in a series of animals I'm working on.

This took a while, primarily because of the hair. First real attempt at doing any kind of hair, and it was tricky getting both the colour right and the underlying form of the muscle looking right.

The Newt

He's really quite serious.

One in a series of animals I'm working on.

Interesting Woking on the skin and trying to get it to look the smooth semi-translucent look these guys have. Never realised there were so many variation in the colours too. Awesome.

The Parrot

"Squawk - fancy that!"

One in a series of animals I'm working on.

Really quite happy with the attitude caught in this one, and with the way the feathers turned out - without having to go into too much detail.

The Koala

Drunk on eucalyptus leaves, it sleeps high in the tree.

One of a series of animals I'm working on.
