Sketchbook

I am drawing a lot, just keep forgetting to add it on here.


 This is my first sketch in my new Starwars themed moleskin. It's pretty!


Some HP love

I have a problem ok.


Some sculpture

A little while ago I cast my face in plaster and I am now sculpting over it. Not exactly sure where this came from, it started out as a wolf/man thing. Now it's a grumpy reluctant hero monster with a broken tooth. Not gonna ask what that says about me.



aaaaahhhh

Now if I could create sketches that looked like these I would die a happy bunny.

I think The Black Cauldron was highly under rated, don't you?

Crazy Thursday: Part 2

So after I had this lovely day I had to rush back into town (which took about 2 hours die to crazy traffic) so that I could get back to my first sculpture workshop.
This is the first of a few so I'll hopefully have more to show you soon.
The first session was on face casting which I've never done before. So, here is my face!


 I look rather strained because I am semi claustrophobic and I was desperately trying not to panic underneath the alginate. With only small nose holes to breath out of all I could think of was if I panicked I would faint! But the rest of the casting process was really fun and I think we get another go at the end of the course, I will be braver and pull a better face.
I will be using this cast as a base and intend to build an even more interesting face onto the top of it. We'll see how that goes.

Crazy Thursday: Part 1

So my last Thursday was semi insane but rather brilliant too. I was live drawing most of the day at Venturefest Bristol which took place in a rather beautiful building on the outskirts.

This picture was taken at the end of the day (hence the lovely purply sky)

Lorna Picton organised the live draw part of the business event and I think everyone got really stuck in.
Here are some pictures that I took from the day -
I managed to get three letters done, an 'I', an 'O' and an 'N'

My 'I'

I should never build houses.


Some Eco houses

So I was trying to think how I could incorporate wind farms into an interesting and sweet illustration and I was thinking of making an eco house made from a wind turbine. But there was only so much I could do without researching eco houses. So have some pictures -




I think I prefer the rounded house look. So it sort of looks like a hillock from the back. I was thinking I could make a small windfarm on the back of it, like flowers or something. I don't know. Still collecting ideas at the moment.

Some 'eco art' -



I have also been looking at some illustrators for inspiration. This guy is rather brilliant Jon Klassen
