Welcome to the adventures of Bucket & Spade - restaurateurs by day, and... erm, restaurateurs wearing ridiculous outfits by night. Their mission is to save the taste buds of food lovers everywhere! Fast food foragers beware!  Bucket & Spade are in town.

Basically, this was a bit of fun to say thank you on behalf of marketing agency Pebble Shores.  It was framed and presented to Real life Bucket & Spade, Mastermind Josh De Haan and super-chef extraordinaire Mark Sargeant on the opening night of their new joint venture, Rocksalt, Folkestone.

I took great pleasure in working alongside Daniel Kennedy of Pebble Shores and even greater pleasure in downing a 3 course meal at the restaurant.  Both Josh & Sarge are now fighting over the framed version.  Congratulations chaps, and remember:  "The adventures of Bucket & Spade are merely beginning"...

Recipe for a finished piece...

Below is a 5-stage succession of images that demonstrate how an final image comes together from script to finished artwork.
1. Take 2 good eggs (and hammer out a script)...
2. Now, using paper and a pencil, preferably non-repro blue...
3. Reproduce on comic artboard and add some ink...
4. Then transfer to Adobe Photoshop and reduce (to black and white)...
5. Add smatterings of colour...
6. Now transfer to a fresh Adobe Illustrator artboard and add the dressing (text and bubbles) and serve with a nice pat on the back and a well-earned beer...Et voila!
