John Holloway is the founder of Swala Aerospace, UK. He wanted a visualisation of the Swala craft taking off from a SIM track which works using magnets (seen below the rails) for a presentation to be done in the Middle East. It was interesting coming up with a new angle to this craft, which has come through several changes, using different ramjets and diffusers and being launched from various different vehicles in model form.

Dave Britzius has made a career out of doing what he loves - making aircraft simulators. Now he offers people the opportunity, via his new e-book, to construct their own simulators as he has done. Carefully documenting the process, he's laid out over 700 pages of meticulous instructions, photos and diagrams. He commissioned me to design the cover for this e-book. More on Dave and his amazing doings can be found on www.davebritzius.com

That is so encouraging, Cirrelia! Many, many thanks! I think 11 kudos must be an all-time record!

Brothers Sid and Dan are both keen runners, who fancy themselves as being in killer shape. But it’s never good enough. There’s always room for improvement. When there's communal stuff to be done, e.g. tidying up before The Boss comes back, the brothers are quick to go for a run. See more on Sid'n'Dan and the others at http://www.savyra.com/walkie-talkies/shooz/meet-our-shooz/

e nerdy school shoes, Hilda and Mathilda would be rather irritating if they weren’t so comically ignorant. They pretend to read the papers but are really looking at pictures.  Sometimes they do succeed in impressing everyone else because of their perceived superior knowledge.

Schliff and Schloff are the two bunnyslippers and represent an elderly married couple. They are strictly indoors people; their whole life is the TV. 'Outside' is an alien place. They love nothing more than to watch their favourite programmes and have created their own reality around what they see on TV. Apart from the school shoes, occasionally, no-one else in the wardrobe sees TV. Comfort is what they were truly born for. Schliff, the female half, is the den mother. Her grumpy exterior hides a kind heart. More on these two and their neighbours in the shooniverse at: http://www.savyra.com/walkie-talkies/shooz/meet-our-shooz/

Groombie and Madumbi are buddies; in their minds they are all that stands between The Boss and great danger. Tough as nails are our gallant heroes. Utterly devoted to The Boss, they go at obstacles as if nothing can touch them. http://www.savyra.com/walkie-talkies/shooz/meet-our-shooz/

Tina is the identical twin sister of Gina. They are new arrivals in the shoe cupboard, having been there only a week before our story starts. Tina's ribbons are normally neatly wrapped around her and she runs her life in a disciplined, stylish way. Meet Tina and the rest of the Shooz at http://www.savyra.com/walkie-talkies/shooz/meet-our-shooz/

Gina is the slightly wilder identical twin sister of Tina. They are new arrivals in the shoe cupboard, having been there only a week before our story starts. Where Tina is more contained, Gina is spontaneous and outgoing, says whatever comes into her head and embarrasses Tina often without realising it.

About Me:
Experienced digital and traditional illustrator working in 24 styles, I'm based in South Africa but work internationally because the net is our country, right?

Also do graphic design, some animation and e-book production as well as scriptwriting. Favourite programmes are Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, Premier and Soundbooth to make ideas visible (and sometimes audible), all with the loyal help of my Wacom Cintiq.

Basically my work is all about giving life to ideas and all these tools are a means to a beautiful and effective end. More details and my portfolio appear on savyra.com.
