Birdhouse

...that was today's lunchtime speedpaint, and 30 minutes later this rather obvious visual pun was the result.
Still, i thought it came out quite well, and in time i'm sure i'll give it another coat of polish...

Is this it...?

...this week it is, i haven't got round to doing anymore than a few sketchbook doodles.

Better than nothing i suppose!

A quick go at the terrifying, but beautifully attired "Bill the Butcher"



















It's autumn. Trees. Leaves. What the...
































And some other, er, stuff


















TOODLE-PIP!

Round Up

Managed to spend most of sunday meddling with pencils, paints and whatnot - so here's what happened when i abandoned photoshop (in chronological order). Apologies if it's all a bit "A-level"...







Quite like the way the last one was going, might go back and finish it ... or move onto to bigger and better things!

And as ever here's some SPEEEEEEDPAAAAAINTS

Champ


Animal Me (i'm the card bearing ant)



Moustache


Got to wrap this up quickly, Curb Your Enthusiasm in on 10 minutes, BYE NOW

DrSketchy and Odds 'N Ends.

So it was the second Dr. Sketchy this Saturday - which was amazing again. Unfortunately i wasn't quite so amazing this time, so didn't end up with as much as i'd like. Still, must soldier on, stiff upper lip and all that...



(then decided to cheat a bit and added some colour in photoshop)







And then there was a few other pictures i managed to cobble together inbetween everything else in the last few weeks

Speedpaints

Floating


And here's some sketches inspired by the same topic that kept me busy on the train down to Laaaandahn on friday





Fashion


A speedy Batman inspired Birthday card for the excellent Mr.Gumbletron

It's SHOWTIME!

So after several weeks of top-secret doodle development i can finally post the fruits of my labours

As part of left-lion sponsored arts festival, local art shop, er, theshop was holding an illustration exhibition along the theme of "Dead Celebrities" - which i'd been invited to be a part. This was a pretty exciting prospect as i'd never "exhibited" before, so here's what i eventually contributed

The Finished Pieces

Some Like It Rotten


Baby Dangler


Red Carpet


And here they are, finally released into the wild!





Woo!

And these are the ideas that didn't make the final cut and remain unfinished (for now?)...









Also there's been the odd speedpaint, and another awesome Dr. Sketchy's...but that's for the next post.

Right now, it's time for a break.
