I've Moved House...

I've been with blogger for probably about 3 years now...but the time has come to pack my bags and move in with the hip and trendy Tumblr where we can order pizza and dance the night away. Due to the large backload of content there is here on this blog, it'll remain up with all it's previous content as a kind of archive- but I won't be posting any new updates on here from now on!

From now on all Murray blog posts will be here...  (Yes I know it looks very similar thank you very much!) so I hope you'll stick with me and follow all my crazy artistic outings there with me from now on! Thanks to blogger for being a good sport about it all eh?

(as a going away present, here's that melon shrub 2 video we made about a year ago that involves a melon falling on my head!)

Cal Banda

I'm working on a lot of things across the board atm, but one of the most fun things is this illustration I've been doing for my friend Sam's band "Cal Banda"! Sam used to be in this awesome prog metal band called "Acres of Ocean" and his new band is even more slick with a great punk sound, so was an honour to produce some artwork for them! Haha it's just a shame it's taking so long- here's the rough drawing, coloured edited picture coming soon...

Super Awesome Robot

Yes! It's true, we spoke with the queen herself and her majesty is very excited about our forthcoming issue of macro shrub! However we forgot that our launch coincides with her Jubilee weekend, and what with the busy festivities and disruption of the post office etc. it looks like the queen will miss her chance to read macro shrub #3 straight away! So we said no problem queenie, we'll launch it AFTER the jubilee weekend so you can rest your feet with a cuppa and enjoy our literature and art! MACRO SHRUB #3 OUT ON JUNE 6th and now at only £4.00 including post and packaging!!!!

More "fan" doodles

I must say I've never really been into doing any sort of "fan" art, but warming up with doing these quick felt tip doodles from evangelion and gundam have been way too much fun! I think I'm gonna keep doing these as a regular thing! Check out a selection of my doodles today, the 3rd angel from evangelion and two of the mobile suits from gundam wing! (I always preferred the design of the standard mobile suits in gundam than the gundams irks me that the gundams always looked glamorous, were the scientists who made them into bling or something? ) I should really start doodling these higher on the page to fit in their feet!

Evangelion Sketch

After loving the gundam sketches by Jon Boam and then watching evangelion last night (if you haven't watched neon genesis evangelion then i suggest you do) I started doodling with my felt tip and blasted out this lil fan pic of eva:01 - think I'm gonna do more as it was really fun! Check it out!

This is abit of a ridiculous post- but some hilarious pics I thought was worth showing! So me and Daisy, the infamous Dazeray went to visit our close friends Chris and Hilde who now live in Oslo, Norway! It was an awesome trip, lots of fresh air and I feel there will def be some norwegian inspired art from us both at some point!
