Silver Surfers

Plusnet silver surfers day

On Monday it's Silver Surfers Day, no not the intergalactic comic book superhero. Apparently it's to celebrate the elder and more venerable generation's fast-growing uptake of web services. I don't know who made it up or if it's even real, but Plusnet and LBi asked me to design and illustrate their infographic-come-paper-doll to celebrate it.

Originally he was going to come with a range of different stylish moustaches, clothing and accessories, but they decided to concentrate on the specific items for the copy, but you never know, I may upload an updated version here with everything on it ... if I get some spare time.

Da Vinci Dark Star

Dark Star 2013 tasting notes

That time of year has arrived when Dark Star set about letting all you hop heads know what their line up for next year is going to be. Once again I was invited to create the Tasting Notes, with this years theme being Leonardo Da Vinci!

Here's my hand drawn (and some Wacom drawn) offering. Each quarter there is a new A6 insert containing the upcoming monthly specials. I even managed to get them to emboss the wax seal so it's all nice and touchy feely!
