Just a friendly game of poker

I don't know much about poker, I don't even think it's a very interesting game. So I had to do a bit of research for this illustration. I asked one of my good friends, who actually likes poker, about the rules. The idea was that the fight had to be between the dog and the bear, fighting abouth the highest straight flush, and who was cheating - Well, then another friend of mine came by and saw the work in progress. He immediately pointed out, that it still was an open game and at this point the turtle had the best hand, and the dealer still needed to deal two more cards - Hi! that's not what I was told. Well the illustration still contains a lot of drama, with potentiel violence to come - and I have to be a bit more thorough with the research.

Troels Lund Poulsen

Troels Lund Poulsen, the former danish minister of Taxation, who is right on trial accused of abuse of power, is getting himself deeper and deeper into trouble.
Apperently, or most likelt (who knows) he has been dicking a bit too deep into the new danish prime ministers personal taxpapers

It was a sunny day in hell



Check out the new video I made of Yun and my trip to Vietnam. We go to Hanoi and Halong Bay. You should dig the groovy Pink Floyd music from the album, Meddle. You will if you are a freak like me. Clearly you will see how crazy this place can be. Weddings must be a big deal in Vietnam. In front of our hotel, we would see brides and grooms dressed up, getting their picture taken all day long. We were staying at the Hotel Metropole. That's where Graham Greene wrote, "The Quiet American." It was an over the top, opulent place. Loved it, by the way. It made a great backdrop for the wedding photographers to shoot their muses. There was also a lot of Christmas decorations around the outside of the hotel. I guess they were killing 2 birds, by not only getting wedding photos but also getting Christmas photos too. There was a little park next door where all the brides and bridesmaids were getting their hair and make-up done outside. The people are poor, so everything had a sort of make shift quality that was very sweet. The groom's tuxedos never quite fit. They would be wearing sneakers or some strange clogs. It was obvious it was all they had. It all would break my heart. All of them were so beautiful, happy and proud. Korea was such a poor country not too long ago. Now it is a super hip metropolis. The fashions are ahead of the curve. In Vietnam, there is no fashion yet. Capitalism is just taking hold. People dress for practicality, plus they have no extra money yet. After hanging out in Seoul, I can see what is coming down the road. I guess there is no stopping the fashion train from eventually getting there. If you read what I wrote in my drawing, I'm sure you'll want an explanation, so here it is. Yun loves food, so she seeks out places where the best chefs in the world have eaten. There is a tiny hole in the wall that Eric Ripert went to to eat fish. In fact, they only serve one dish. It is very small and rundown in a quaint way. The vines and trees from outside are growing into the place. Hanoi is located in the middle of the wilderness. Seeing a bug in there is like seeing a bug in the amazon. Anyway a small mouse ran near Yun and you know the rest.

Built To Protect

I always forget to post my finished projects up here on the SFG website, proper. LOL. Anyway, this is a personal project I've had floating around my sketchbook for a while. Just playing with the art deco style and robots.

New website and blog for Gemma Robinson

I'm starting 2013 with a new website featuring some of my favourite illustration projects I've worked on over the years and a new blog for chit chat and occasional updates. After 8 years in the business my online portfolio was becoming somewhat unwieldy, so I decided it was down to trim things down and showcase a more consolidated portfolio of work. My new portfolio features projects on a variety of weird and wonderful subjects including cockney rhyming slang, Marmite, flirting and farmers. I hope you enjoy taking a peek!
