I’m painting a huge 5ft 3D sculpt of an owl for @wildinart it’s getting there, though there’s still loads to do.

Added some more stuff to that Dinosaur. He looked a little lost. 

@guymckinley: Drew a dino straight in mac, then added watercolour w/@kyletwebster brushes. I like it, but too much like @scottlava

So here it is. My print has been made by the guys @3rdrailclothing it looks like its come out lovely 50 x 50 cm limited edition available at the opening.

Details reposted from 3rd Rail below.

Test pic, trying to figure out a method to draw straight into pooter, like my sketchbook, keeping it loose.  I like his this guy came out and keep looking back to it as a way in which I could speed up the process of drawing and then scanning etc, for quicker jobs. Editorials, things like that. 

Worth ploughing on with it I think. 

Repost of detail from my print for @3rdrailclothing “It’s been a long Monday, you deserve another sneaky peek of one of our AVB label designs, so here is a bloody brilliant one from Mr @guymckinley …. Get over to our kickstarter at and get involved in the magic! —————————————————————————-

Roaring Creature. Part of that poster the text from yesterday was from.

THE what? Bit of hand drawn type for a poster. #handrawn #typography #guymckinley

Sketching for a poster that was proving problematic. It’s coming on a bit now. Getting there. #sketches #guymckinley

Bit of colour/detail from that Beard Marine drawing I posted last week. Its all finished, but the shows not until October so this is all if can post for now. #guymckinley #printedmatter

Playing catch up on a few things now I’m back in my studio. One Beard Marine in stasis ready for colour. #sketches #guymckinley #wip

Still up to my nuts in dust with house renovation. In between brewing up for the trades I managed to pull the beardy spaceman who is transfixed by this mysterious orb out my think meat and on the page. Feel rusty though.

Still bogged down with prep for the new Kitchen. Managed to grab a bit of sketchbook time though. New character Mary Agnes.

Bit of cityscape on a job I’m working on that I think came out lovely. #guymckinley #artists #illustration

Always like the two extremes of Batman. Either really stocky, or really skinny. Fatter version here. #sketches #guymckinley #warmup #batman
