|Apparently the antioxidant Catechin (which is found in green tea), stops an enzyme in the Olympic drug tests from detecting testosterone. (Congratulations to Alex Shipley for guessing correctly, a caricature is on it's way to you!) This illustration was actually a bit of a grind! As much as i like having the various nationalities, I'm not sure if i could have accomplished the same idea without breaking away from my usual square-framed, canvas. i find this one a little bit out of proportion too; the girls seem a bit squashed, and the signs a bit lost! ...Then again, maybe I'm worrying about nothing!? I'll probably feel totally different about it in the morning, and think i like the direction in the piece, and that there's contrast between the cluttered, bottom-half and the spacious top-half. i might say i like that the Olympic colours echo through the outfits too...hey...I'm actually starting to like this!! well done, me!|
|can you guess what it is before i post the finished piece? the correct (or closest) answer will get a free caricature that you can use for your Facebook or Twitter profile picture (like mine in the sidebar on the right!). Post here or on the THUNDERscrawl Facebook page by following the link on the right! GOOD LUCK!|
|This illustration was related to the recent story about a teenager who sold his kidney for some Apple products. i have to admit, i class my iPhone and iPad as vital organs and sold a testicle to purchase them (although, i can honestly say i'm living a totally normal life with the remaining two). This time, i wanted to retain the flat colour vibe, but give it more OOMPH! so i added depth and interest with a little dry-brush work, and i'm rather pleased with the result.|

|...David Cameron and Nick Clegg promise to tackle dementia by boosting funds, making UK a world leader in the field. Thanks for giving your guesses on here and Facebook, i might go back and illustrate some of those suggestions, as they were a lot more entertaining than this subject! I'll post the winner of the mini-competition on Facebook!|
|every now and again, i like to use a silhouette of my work to see how well-balanced the image is. it's not always necessary, but in this case it was, and I'm pretty pleased with the results! can you guess what it is before i post the finished piece? the correct or closest answer will get a free caricature that you can use for your Facebook or Twitter profile picture (like mine on the right there!)|
i hope you're all successful in fooling people today (unless you're my partner!). once I've cooked up a few tricks to dish-out to my girlfriend, I'll be finishing up a new illustration for a science/technology magazine, so come back and see the update later on!
