As part of my 30-minute Portrait series I decided, once again, to draw a man of senior years and created this vector sketch of Irish avant-garde novelist, playwright, theatre director, and poet Samuel Beckett.
Beckett is widely regarded as among the most influential writers of the 20th century. Strongly influenced by James Joyce, he is considered one of the last modernists. As an inspiration to many later writers, he is also sometimes considered one of the first postmodernists. He is one of the key writers in what Martin Esslin called the “Theatre of the Absurd”. His work became increasingly minimalist in his later career.

To celebrate the start of Season 4 of the excellent US TV series Breaking Bad, I thought I would mark the event by creating my own Walter White/Heisenberg portrait.
Editor of Film Rage magazine, movie producer and fellow film buff, Thomas Eikrem, commissioned me to create a suitably sexy poster for Hans Fredrick von Liljewahl’s upcoming B-movie, Copenhagen Climax. As the production had yet to have a proper script at that stage, I had little to work on other than a brief outline concerning two lovely girls up to hi-jinx in the aforementioned Danish city so I roughed out a series of minimalist ideas based on the theme.
At first, my unorthodox take on the idea (the movie is shot in the style of a 70s porno) were thought to be unrepresentative of the period but, after discussiosn with the other producers and director, the poster was deemed satisfactory.

I’ve been working for clothing company Atomic Hard Wear for most of this year, designing logos and animations for their web site and merchandising line. Ray, the owner, wanted an atomic symbol as the main graphic so we spent a few weeks toying with various versions before deciding on this industrial-looking, bolted girder effect.
