Illustrations for an imaginary age

Tag: orange


It’s been a while since I blogged – work and holidays have both combined to keep me from doing so.

Over the last couple of months I’ve been working on getting some artwork ready to sell online as prints – should be ready to go in April – which is very exciting. I’ll be launching with five or six different illustrations, most of which will be available to buy at a couple of different sizes. When everything is confirmed I’ll post here about it.

I’ve also completed a couple of commissions and worked on some concept art for a couple of clients – I can’t share any of that just yet though.

For now, here are some of the sketches I’ve done over the past couple of months.

Buy Me a Coffee at

Orange is the new black.

No, not the TV show. The colour.

[NOUN] A bright reddish-yellow colour like that of the skin of a ripe orange:tones of golden brown and orange[NOUN]: the most shocking of pinks and oranges.

It’s my favourite colour. I don’t have any orange clothes though, they’d clash terribly with my hair.

A Gigantic Fleet of Tiny Orange Spaceships

I decided to draw a few little spaceships. It got a bit out of hand. When I finished there was a whole tiny fleet of them. All tiny, all orange. 150 in total. I counted.



The finished fleet. 150 strong.

Spaceships look better in Orange

I like spaceships. I like orange.
