2000 AD covers uncovered

Just finished this pic for Pete Wells, who runs the 2000 AD covers uncovered blog at

It's a cool site dedicated to showing 2000 AD cover art in all its glory, i.e. before the designer gets his filthy hands on them and plasters logos, text and other junk all over the place.

The hideously obscured Dredd image on the front cover of the prog is by Dylan Teague, so thank you to him. I didn't actually ask him if I could use it, so apologies for that. I hope he doesn't mind...

Car paintings

1920-something Crossley Tourer. 18x24' oil on canvas

I've got a bit of a thing for cars. This is the first one I tried painting properly. It was a present for my dad - it's his car in the painting.

2001 Rover Mini Seven. 18x24' oil on canvas

Another present - this time for my wife. She had this car from new and was a bit gutted when she had to sell it recently, so I did her a picture to remember it by.

mk.1 Triumph Spitfire. work-in-progress.

A commission! Only spent a couple of hours on this so far, hence the roughness but it's starting to look the right shape now. I quite like some of the rougher, half-finished areas so I might leave some bits further back in the painting very loose (the far front light for example) and bring the foreground into focus. The chrome bumpers looking ok too, although I need to adjust the centre line of the bonnet.
