The noble Art of selfdefense

Consume,... go ahead...

Another oldie from about 10 years ago,... for a magazine I've forgotten about. I do remember it was about consumerism. That's Thomas Jeffereson's study in the background. I thought it would a bit ironic at the time.


Yeah, I'm that old,... I did this for an TV guide ad when the show was still on TV.

Al Gore & Chris Paine

An Illustration for Backbone magazine which talks about truth versus fiction in recent documentaries such as "An Inconvenient Truth" (Al gore) and "Who killed the Electric Car" (Chris Paine) for an article in their Auto Tech section.

Dr. V

I was asked to put some illustrations in an online magazine. This is for the cover. Each issue has a cover of a doctor with a mask and one of those round metal thingies on his or her head. This is my rendition. When it comes out I will post where you can go to look at it.

The Claws Come Out

So yeah, I just made this little postcard to give to comic shops and stuff to promote my upcoming book THE CLAWS COME OUT. The book in mostly about pretty girls kicking monsters' asses, so I came up with this image for the promo:

Hi everyone! Here's a quick gouache painting on watercolour paper of my two favourite characters from the film Hot Fuzz. Which was hilarious by the way!

Ghost-Rex & Kid Frankenstein!

Friend and filmmaker Seth Worley is at it again.
Don't know how much I can spill about it, but I was asked to craft a prop for his latest film. It's supposed to resemble a page torn from an old book on Tennessee ghost lore....
The legendary....GHOST REX...!

After I turned that in, Seth wanted to know if I had done any comic book covers that he could use to populate the kid's tent.
I'm sending him my TrogHammer comic ...and while rooting around I found this guy in a dark dank corner of the archives. I dusted him off and brought him out into the light...
Say hello to Kid Frankenstein!

You can follow Seth's exploits more closely:

  • swimsuit special

    This series of ladies was done for the magazine, for a spread on swimsuit shopping tips for special body features. Hence the big equipment of one lady, the big hips of the other etc.

    It's done in a new technique, do you like it?

    'Introductory Blurb...'

    Hi all, I'd like to introduce myself to you all as the latest addition to the great team of creatives at 'Sugar Frosted Goodness!'. My name is Paul Garland, I am an Illustrator/Image Maker and have been working professionally on a freelance basis for a good number of years.

    Look out for me in the Gallery of the next issue of '3X3 Magazine' and in the pages of the 'Luerzers Archive 200 Best Illustrators in the World' due in the next couple of months. I was also told just yesterday that I have won a Gold Award in the ' Awards', so all in all this year so far is coming along nicely thank you very much.

    post somethin' thursday

    been a while and I wanted to get somethin' in...

    Phil Spector

    A caricature sketch of Phil Spector
    - Eccentric music genius is charged with the murder of Lana Clarkson, a fading movie actress. The trial revolves around whether Spector, in one of his alcohol-fueled rages, put a loaded gun in Lana's mouth and pulled the trigger or whether she was despondent and desperate enough to have committed suicide.-


    One of the problems of having an indoor Television ariel is the possibilty of interference from a small budgie, canary or other pet bird.

    this kind of made the rounds a couple weeks ago, but i thought a few people here that haven't seen it might enjoy it. :)



    PYBOT - Air Force 50th Anniversary

    I was commisioned to do this illustration for a magazine cover to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the US Air Force. The planes flying away from you are B-50s, being the first aircraft designated as Air Force in September of 1947. The wing-like aircraft flying toward you is of course, the well recognized B-2 Spirit, the Air Force's first operational stealth bomber.

    PYBOT/W: Custom 52

    Vote for me! Again! And then post something yourself so I can vote for you too!
    Everyone got Jeff's email, no excuses! I found out about Custom52 last week and I had designed some cards so I thought it would be fun. So far, my entries seem to be unique in that, like 98% of the rest are full-on graphic design. Get IN THERE folks! They need a serious infusion of illustration!!
    I'm hoping to do at least one more myself.

    PYBOT: All Work & No Play

    I design "custom" wine labels for a living. I make labels that people can customize with a message and I partner with a wine store in New York City that re-labels wine with them for me (1 bottle at a time). Here are a couple of labels that aren't in main circulation and that I havent found an audience for yet - oh- you guys!

    if you want to try / check out the custom wine labeling thing please visit:

    Dog with flower


    PYBOT Hugo with wet hair


    This is one of the pictures for my new year-long art/illustration project ‘A Family Portrait’. I will be doing a portrait a day of each of the members of my family (me, husband, daughter, three sons and the dog) for a year and have fun trying lots of different styles. The great thing is that they are used to my sketching and so are completely desensitised and don’t take it personally if the portraits are unflattering. This one is of my middle son Hugo after washing his hair.

    The latest Design Inspiration interview is with my friend and fellow SFG'er Steph Doyle. It's a wonderful interview with a lot of great insight, be sure to check it out.

    Read it, Love it, Comment it!



    I'm digging back into an older sketchbook. Here's one I always liked and since Barry "The Walking Drugstore" Bonds is about to break the all-time home run record, this one is pretty timely.
