Lucha Libre

Playing around with an old sketch and a new one 'ART FAG' (previous post)... I came up with this image... I like! I like a lot!... so much, that I am just going to have to ink it and maybe colour it too!

Edinburgh Children's Hospital

Little inky update. This will no doubt see no more action as the commissioning party only needs B/W for a presentation document. 

The premise of this pitch is all children who visit the hospital will get to go crazy in a dressing up space... then have their portrait taking to be eternally added to a screen in the foyer display all images on a loop of all who have been resident at the hospital. I like it

Hopefully, something a little more Cloud Commission-esque will come this way soon... but in the meantime, ready yourself for a further 9 more of these badboys!


Penciled Masuimi Max

Ah!... I bought a new pumb action pencil today... rotring 'Tikky' 0.35, so I thought I best break it in... not only a nice pencil, but also a nice subject matter for my latest drawing... umm!... Masuimi

Watched Buffalo '66 at the weekend. If you haven't seen it, check it out. Vincent Gallo and Christina Ricci star...

Trying some new stuff at the moment. Keep keep keeping on, keep keeping on...

(edit: I've written the work "keep" too many times now for it to make any sense)

'Art Fag'

In response to our new 'Blog'... and doing as it says on the tin 'Draw More'... here is an image that I drew a few weeks back, however, I have made a few slight changes and inked the image, scanned and posted.

As for the definition or meaning... well!... it has many, but the one I found and liked the most is:
"A middle-aged man who seems really gay, wears sweater vests, and is totally into art, literature, and renaissance shit. Generally elitists and commonly teachers."

Olmec Head

Loose sketch for an outdoor piece I did at the weekend in Whitley Bay. Ended up being around 6ft and looking very different from the sketch…

Draw More Blog

Draw More is a blog set up to bring people together who draw, doodle and sketch in Newcastle. We’re looking to expand the base of artists to get together and draw more, basically. Hopefully letting it grow into something beautiful with drawing jams, projects and exhibitions. Get in touch if you want to be involved, cheers!
