Daily Drawings
Over the last month or so I've been making a concerted effort to do about an hour (most often less) of daily drawing in my sketchbook and wanted to share some of these with you.  I've been trying to use a variety of ink brush pens and keep the drawing quite loose and quick.
Thanks for looking!
"marvellous party!"
Disappointing Fireworks display.
Crocodile walk.
I took this one to colour...
It's a sloth rather than a deformed monkey.
Some new coin designs for the Royal Mint!
I turned this drawing into a 4 frame looping animation.
Fancy faces
"Took the high road"
small faces.
That's all folks!
I've been posting these regularly on twitter and instagram. Thanks!
More Treats, Less Tricks!
Have a great Halloween weekend everyone!
Accidental Pig Week
It started with a few ink doodles in my sketchbook...
Who doesn't enjoy a drawing of a pig in a hat?  The fat guy in the middle got coloured first.
I've been trying to keep colour work a bit looser and have been aiming for a more painterly effect in Photoshop.  Here he is looking pretty pleased with himself.
Next up the little guy on soapbox.  MMMmmm, Bacon.
I also like working in just 2-3 colours.  These are 2 colours with an overlay.
Pig week continued and to keep going I fuelled up on several cheese and ham toasties.  (Sorry Veggies!)
I realised that I hadn't drawn very many lady pigs so went back to the sketchbook.
A quick first sketch:

Final colour artwork...
And finally on Sunday, I celebrated the end of Pig Week with a bag of these:
Thanks Pig Lovers!  Let's do it all over again next year!
Sketchbook Mugshots
Aside from my usual hand-lettering, I've been trying to develop my work in other areas.  I've really been enjoying devoting daily time to sketchbook drawing.  It's something that I know is vital but it's also the first thing to get sacrificed when things get busy.
I've been drawing a lot with various brush pens and experimenting with efficient ways to add colour on the computer.  For a long time I've always found that my pencil sketches tighten up too much as soon as I try to colour them so I've also been trying to loosen up a little bit in Photoshop.
Here are some little head and shoulders doodles, I've taken to colour artwork.
(I've also been sharing my daily drawings on twitter and instagram.)
