The Night of the Hunter

Here is my poster for The Night of the Hunter, a 1955 American horror film directed by Charles Laughton and starring Robert Mitchum, Shelley Winters and Lillian Gish. The film follows religious fanatic and serial killer Rev. Harry Powell as he obsessively hunts down two young orphans who may know where a large sum of stolen money lies.

The Night of the Hunter is my all time favourite film ever since I watched it back in 2004. If you haven't seen it then I strongly urge you to do so.

He-Man VS Skeletor

This is my first He-Man cartoon.

He-Man finally has enough of his archenemy and cuts his head off.

I might do a couple more cartoons with the tagline "Somebody Had To Win" and which will focus on a hero finally getting rid of his or her nemesis.

Am Fear Liath Mor

A new comic book that I'm working on. The comic will be a three issue series based on Am Fear Liath Mor, otherwise known as The Big Grey Man. This particular monster is Scotland's answer to Big Foot and the Yeti. The series will deal with a hunting party of Big Grey Men as they confront an even greater threat on their mountain home.
