Trent 1000 LPT Module 08 by AaronSmurfMurphy
Trent 1000 LPT Module 08
Inks for a Mural design I'm putting together for Rolls-Royce. This was taken from an A5 sketch I put together in my spare time. I had to muck around with the cylinder section as my original sketch had it far too stretched out compared to the actual Module's real appearence. The problem was that condensing the cylinder section messed up the curves somewhat as I'd free handed the whole thing and didn't have a French Curve to work with.

This is the first inks intensive thing I've done in a while and the whole thing was like pulling teeth as I remembered how to get the most out of fine liners.

The next step will be to blow this up to 2A0, reverse relief i on a board and paint it in.

Luke's Lovely Liquids by AaronSmurfMurphy
Luke's Lovely Liquids
Inked lines for Luke's Lovely Liquids, a face book page for my friends Luke's guide to real Ale & Cider Pubs around the UK. 

This came out of being a regular drinker at The Last Post in Derby and sketching Thumbnails for comics at their bar. Luke asked if I could produce him promo work for the face book page and this is what I turned out. I used Lee behind the bar as a reference model and drew a bit of it every time I went in for a drink.

This could probably do with some colour work doing to it at some point and I still need sort the aspect ratio out to match the size of Face books Banner pictures.

Well then.

This Saturday, the 4th of October you can find me (and many seriously talented Comics Artists) at Nottingham Comics Convention. The show's being held at Nottingham Conference Centre, Goldsmith Street, Nottingham NG1 4BU which is a great central location close to the Trams and several major bus routes.

With just over a week to go it's probably time to point out that I'll be going to Melksham Comics Con on the 30-31st August!



I'll be running a table alongside my exemplary Comics companion Joseph J Morgan who'll be selling copies of his comic Merlot The Rabbit. Hopefully he'll have a remastered version of issue 1. You can see the work in progress on his Tumblr:
tomorrowsjoe.tumblr.com/

I'll be selling new comics too with this being the first convention where I've had a chance to sell the anthology comic T4L Comics issue 1. I contributed a strip called Metronaut and provided the cover too. If you want wait 'til Melksham or can't make it you can buy the digital version here: www.comicsy.co.uk/vyendell/sto…



Also on sale will be copies of The Tea Book. An art book with a huge variety of artists drawing personified Tea's that was edited by Bex Burgess. rebeccaburgess.co.uk/ I contributed this piece called Gunpowder Tea:



It's probably worth mentioning that I'm also going to be at the following shows this year:

Nottingham Comic Con - Saturday 4th of October.



Leeds Thought Bubble - Saturday & Sunday 15-16th of November.


Hopefully there'll be more to update on soon but this is it for now.

Cheers & lovely,
