Nadia Rose

I caught the Nadia Rose song "Skwod" on a music channel last week, and I've been listening to it and another song of hers "tight up" on repeat ever since.
Here's a pic I drew of her from a screen grab! (click to enlarge)

 More art soon.

Matador turns 3D!

I'm really excited to announce that Morning Star Minatures are producing an awesome minature resin sculpt based on my "Matador" painting! The bulk of the work has already been done, all that's left to do is raise some money for mass production via Kickstarter.
Morning Star have already sent me one of the figures and it looks great, I'm really happy with how she's turned out.
Head over to "Ben Newman's Matador" kickstarter page to look at more images and videos about the project, and start spreading around that cash!

There's only thirty days to reach the target funding goal, so don't wait!

August doings! Tessa's Sword of Truth

Hello again. Fancy meeting YOU here!
August is upon us, and with it the 5th anniversary of Clandestine Republic! To celebrate this momentous occasion, they are releasing a load of special edition prints and a great money-off offer across the majority of the site. Here's my contribution, a massive poster of Tessa from Jenny Bones: Legend of the Peril Squad, disciplining some nasty biters with her Sword of Truth!

For the whole of August all orders at the Clandestine Republic Store over $50 will get free shipping with the code "FIVEALIVE"!
So why not double up a giant Tessa poster with a copy of Jenny Bones to qualify!
There's a load more great art and books on the Clandestine site, so have a nose around while you're there :)
More art soon.

Cherry 2000

A few years ago I was commisioned by an independent DVD company to produce a cover for their re-release of Cherry 2000. Unfortunately it never panned out for some reason, I think they couldn't secure the rights or something? Anyway, I was pretty gutted because I love Cherry 2000, I think the image came out really nice, and I had visions that drawing DVD covers of cool films might become a regular thing for me, which I would LOOOOVE! Oh well, it wasn't meant to be I guess.
I figure it's been long enough now that they wouldn't mind me showing this image, so here it is!

Cherry 2000 has got a ton of really cool visuals, some of which I tried to incorporate into the image. Here are a few detail shots

More art soon
ps. Every SINGLE time I wrote Cherry in this post I typed Cheery by mistake. Weird.

Lana Del Rey

I saw Lana Del Reys "High on the Beach" video the other day; the best use of flimsy nightgowns + helicopters I've seen in a while. I started this one meaning for it to be a quick sketch, and although it still LOOKS like a quick sketch, it actually took me ages. So that's what I'VE been doing....

Made some slight tweaks
More art soon.

OxCon 2016

Well, things have been pretty quiet here lately, mainly because I haven't drawn much I can put up. But never fear, I haven't abandoned this little blog and I'll continue to update here whenever I've got something to show; even though I'm not sure anyone ever looks at this site anymore!

The main point of this post is to say that I'll be at the brand new Oxford ComicCon event on Sat 5th and Sun 6th of March. Me and my wife are going to have a stall there selling prints, postcards, tees and a very limited number of copies of Jenny Bones: Legend of the Peril Squad!
So if you want to have an awkward conversation with a man who looks like a sleepy potato in a hoodie, drop by and say hello.
 I can't do a post with no images, so here is a small selection from a ton of pen drawings I did for Cinema Sewer recently:

Three Little Pigs

Well, it's been a long time coming, but I finally finished the Three Little Pigs picture I started oh-so-many years ago! The big delay was that I worked it up to a certain level, and then got sick of it, so put it on the backburner, where it stayed for five years until my wife finally managed to talk me into finishing it. I think the long gap probably helped it though, because I can (or at least I hope I can) draw better than I could five years ago. Anyway, enough waffle, here it is:

Also available as a limited edition print in my shop.
