I Scream!

Was mucking around after doing sum work today on my children's book and I had this little joke in my head.  might actually refine it, make a nu blog header or business card outta it.

apparently it takes about 10,000 hours of practice to excel in a particular area so I'm heading back to the drawing board!

more iphone gestural stuff

Another gestural sketch from my iphone. I spent ages on this one to tell truth, cleanin up on the iphone with sum clumsy man hands aint easy.  this is of a girl i saw on friday, cool dress sense, very cool pose and expression that sed "i dont care".  im goin to try n draw sum more of her  im def goin to draw full body complete pose, ive actually never seen n e 1 sit at a bus stop using a pillar and stop sign to prop herself up and actually look very comfortabel b4.

i doubt my iphone drawings will ever b this clean again this took a lot o patience, did an awful lot more drawin with the eraser than n e thin else. i ended up using my laptop on a few lil bits but i wudnt let myself do too much, felt like i was cheatin r sumthin. def more of this kind o stuff to come

Zoolander's reaction on BP oil spill

A wise man once said that "Moisture is the essence of wetness, and wetness is the essence of beauty." - not in BP's case tho. There's been soooooo much oil spilled into the sea i think it's really really ridiculous.

I started this this morning while waiting for feedback on a job I'm doing, thought I'd throw it up. I'm actually happy with the likeness.

figure studies

Trying to do more n more of these I don't usually post these up but I'm relatively happy with this one.  Especially since it was dun on the bus ( the gud oul 46a) n i hate drawing on the bus cause of all the bumps etc i usually get the worst linequality in the world!  n the line quality in this isn't at all the best could be but, I'm doing these more n more just make my library of designs grow.  Some people in Dublin (esp the women and even more so now that the sun is out) have an amazing dress sense and I'm just trying to see all the shapes, cuts n colours that I can so I can use em in my designs. I'll post up sum more soon whether they r gud r bad

Sum new Life drawin'

Attending new life drawin classes at the mo,  here's a couple o pics

The model we had was awesome, still feel pretty rusty tho as its been years since my last life drawin class, dont feel im doin the model any justice, but i have to start sumwhere.



Here's a big drawing I did for the Art n Hobby last weekend.  It was originally supposed to be loads o kids flying kites and soaking up the summer sun, but wen I woke up that morning it was lashing rain ( gud oul Irish weather) so I thought I'd draw a long armed monster keeping the kids dry while they eat their Mauds Ice-cream n play with toys from the Art n Hobby ( Mauds ice-cream is amazin! check it, n Yo-Yo's r always fun, if u do not have a yo-yo go to ur nearest art n hobby n pick one up!)  this was done on 8, A2 royale blue canford sheets n sum pastels.  twas fun.
