Davie Shipyard

Davie Shipyard in Canada commission Ian Naylor for several epic 3D views.

Chantier Davie is the oldest shipyard in Canada, and last year they approached Ian to draw andanimate an aerial view of the facility for use on their website and in editorial. Ian says "I was naturally interested since I love ships, particularly offshore working vessels, they are such giant, robust and technical machines, self-contained for demanding work in some of the world's harshest environments. As the job progressed it was clear that other illustrations would be required, they were kind enough to fly me over to Canada last month and I was able to gather the reference I needed to embark on the ongoing production and tour Davie facility at Lévis, across the river from Quebec city". Being on site was a treat for Ian, though having to brave a minus 30 wind-chill and a frozen St Lawrence was a challenge. The reward however was "a dream job for a charming and enthusiastic client".  Watch the animation...

Frances Castle: Interactive Games for The Mary Rose Museum

Frances Castle was commissioned by a new media design agency to illustrate two interactive games for The Mary Rose Museum. Built alongside HMS Victory at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, the new state-of-the-art museum houses Henry VIII's famous warship and many of the 19,000 artifacts which were recovered with it from the sea in 1982. 52,000 visitors have already flooded through the museum's doors since it opened on 31st May!
Frances had to illustrate objects and characters for 'What's for Dinner' which gives visitors a chance to choose the menu for a crew of over 500 men and officers. She also designed a fun shooting game called 'Foil the French' featuring four different types of guns with different firing ranges – visitors are set the challenge to disable the enemy ships in order to capture them, not to sink them!
