NYC Aquarium ‘Ocean Wonders: Sharks’ Exhibit

I’m very excited to be able to finally announce that I’m currently working with the lovely people at the Wildlife Conservation Society in the US to produce 60+ Illustrations for the ‘Ocean Wonders: Sharks’ exhibit that will be housed in the new $157 million re-build and transformation of the NYC Aquarium.

As a shark freak, this is a dream project and by far the highest profile and hugest job I’ve ever worked on (literally, with Illustrations ranging from 5cm to a whopping 4 metres!)

I’m nearly half way through the final artwork, but won’t be able to share anything until the Aquarium is re-opened in 2016. However, I have been given permission to share a sneak peek of one of the shark Illustrations from a huge shipwreck scene…

I feel very fortunate to be working on such a fun and very worthwhile conservation project, helping to educate future generations about these amazing creatures.

Here’s an animated walk through of how the exhibit will look when finished – it looks amazing!

Original Collage Auction For The Philippines Typhoon Disaster Fund

In response to the devastating typhoon that hit the Philippines and to try and help the people over there in some small way, I’ll be auctioning off my framed original Kingfisher collage to the highest bidder.

The auction is being run via my Jonathan Woodward Studio Facebook page, is already underway and will run until midnight on Friday (GMT). I will be covering the cost of postage and packing to anywhere in the world.

My wife and children are Filipino by genetics so I feel even more compelled to try and help, but more than that, I’m a human and fellow humans are currently going through something we probably couldn’t even begin to imagine right now. So, please do hop over to the Facebook page and take a look >>>

UPDATE:

I’m delighted to say that the final, winning amount bid for the collage was £100. Thank you very much to Mary Murphy, who is the new owner of my Kingfisher collage.

Wolves Digital Painting Tutorial

About 3 years ago, before I settled on the traditional cut paper collage style of Illustration that I currently work in, I was still dabbling with digital painting in Adobe Photoshop.

I did love the immediacy of the digital medium and it’s forgiving qualities when I made a mistake (not so easy to correct snippets of paper that have been glued down).

Back in 2009 I was commissioned to produce a digital painting tutorial and although in a different medium, my subject matter has always been the same – wildlife of course!

As it’s been 3 years since I created the tutorial, I think I’m pretty safe to show it on here now. Hope you enjoy it and find it useful if you’re thinking of giving digital painting a try.

Here’s a pic of the final digital painting…
