For The Plymouth College of Art Summer Show 2012, I wanted to make my space into a sort of set with the use of vinyl stickers to make it look like sedimentary rock like the sort of wall the Ghost Explorer would have in his home at the bottom of the sea. I choose to exhibit The Ghost Explorer And The Great Underwater Mountain Range because I thought this image illustrated the whole project the best.

In this extra scene of The Ghost Explorer, our newly reunited couple are about to go on another spectral adventure together.

This illustration was made for a book I made for my dissertation which tells the tale of Edward Magpie and the crew of his ship, The Stultifera Navis. These three animal are the pets of three future seeing giantesses known as the Isaacs Sisters.
See if you can spot the Navis on each animal.

This is another illustration from Palincest, this image shows the aphotic zone of the sea and a bit of fishy fisty cuffs is just about to commence between a squid and a sperm whale with an angler fish providing the spot light and a shoal of hatchetfish come to spectate.
This illustration also has a sister, Laura Jayne Weeks, who I collaborated on the project with, made an illustration which joins on the right hand side which also includes sperm whales and angler fish.

Another piece from The Palincest Mine.
Because the project was about different layers of thing I wanted to do an illustration of a few members of the bug kingdom.
Also once I'd done the all illustrations I wanted to have little labels under each bug with their latin names on and the wee dust mite ended up having the longest name which was an added humour bonus.
The little blighter.

Another Palincest diamond in the rough.
For ages I wanted to do an illustration of a friendly vampire bat because I always thought they've got a bad rep thanks to Bram Stoker and the like. For this image I was thinking about the fact it would be a screen printed illustration, so I made the main smiling bat's colour quite flat and the background hanging bats just silhouettes.

Another shining light in the Palincest heavens.
For the Palincest project I wanted to have a selection of different animal habitats and because I was doing this illustration through the festive period and enjoying the awesome BBC's Frozen planet (narrated by David Attenborough aka God) I wanted to do something with polar bears/cold and I thought what if the Inuits believed that the aura borealis came from a great bear, lighting up the sky with it's magic.

Another brick in the Palincest wall.
For the Palincest I wanted to experiment with different styles and illustrate animals in different ways. For my mind work quite mathematically I wanted to make each animal of the Totem Pole quite symmetrical.
The animals are (from left to right, up to down): Eagle, Elephant, Monkey, Gorilla, Piranha, Walrus, Bear, Penguin, Killer Whale, Lion, Shark and Dear.

Welcome to the Palincest world weary traveler, you've made it over the jumpered mountains and listened to the howl of the wolf, but there will be more slights to be seen soon.
Also if you can't find everything you desire here, go to Laura Jayne Weeks for more Palincest illustrations.
