Heavy Plant

More stuff from the boondocks. These pics are from my go at realising Russell Uttley’s Heavy Plant book, we were both really pleased with how it was going but, alas, finance…

  1. Such a shame! I remember seeing bits and pieces on the Com X site at the time and really looking forward to it.


  2. The more of these sketches and concept work I see, the more I think a printed sketch book is definitely in order!Really looking forward to Kestrels.

    Great work, as always. I used a picture of one of your heavy plant illo's to illustrate a blog post I did about you two years ago. If you'd like to read it, it's here:-http://www.kirkendall.co.uk/index.php?id=100


  4. I really like that top machine, the one gathering debris. It has a really human quality, as though you based it on a crouched child at play on the floor, breathing life into a machine…not easy.


  5. Please do. I think the first image of yours that really grabbed me was also a machine. I found your work in back issues of 2000AD. There were no albums at the time, no re-prints. And you had moved on, so I didn’t know your work at that point. But I found this back-issue and the panel that got me was ‘Fink’ hitching a ride along some hover-frieghter-bus. It was heavy looking yet floating in traffic ….with this ghoul-billy alongside.
