tracing in illustrator, redrawing in illustrator and colouring in photoshop.
I am not happy with it yet but I am enjoying the journey, please let me know your thoughts.

Well I am not to sure how some up the last two months other than I have really really enjoyed it.
I have met some really cool and interesting people at the live scribbles and been able to share so many thoughts and ideas and drank the finest coffee, I have had a blast.

Big thank you to urban coffee company and all those sail in her, all the many people who have stopped for a chat and all those who purchased artwork. Anybody wishing to purchase artwork after today you can contact me via the website feel free to give me a call.

Would also like to thank David hall for the brilliant photographs he took on the opening day, and Tyler Curtis for writing my my bio.

apropos of not much


Thought I'd share this with you, a page from my sketch book. I normally sketch in black gel pen or plain pencil. but by drawing in light blue it had quit a profound effect on what I scribbled and the speed in which I created or invented these characters, it took less than 30 mins and must admit I really like them. Just a passing thought bye.
