I've always wanted to be able draw in a Graphic Novel style...this is my first effort. It hasn't worked out the way I wanted it to but I thought I'd post it anyway as a reference point (hopefully I can improve on it and post another one at a later date...)
It's based on a scene from the movie, Book of Eli.
Thought I'd post another drawing today to celebrate going over 1000 visits to this blog, well, I couldn't let let it pass without some sort of recognition. I didn't have anything done for the occasion so I've posted this illustration which was a sample drawing for a children's story.
There is a black and white (greyscale) version of this drawing of Hendrix, but it was decided that the colour version had a bit more life to it. I was inspired to do this after seeing an acrylic on canvas image created by Carl Brind
For the past couple of days I have been doing my First Aid re-qualification with the St.John Ambulance. This is a caricature of the trainer. I missed about 20 minutes of the course while secretly sketching him and unfortunately I don't have a comparison photo for you to see, but I thought I'd include it here (if only as a reminder to myself).
By the way, I passed the course...! Another 3 years of being able to do CPR on an armless, legless dummy and bandage a cut caused by some old person with an inability to open a tin of beans correctly...Whoop-de-doo!
I've always loved Lambretta's and the sound of them. I had a bit of a Mod thing going on in my youth, I still love the style, the clothes, scooters and above all the music and life-style...Am I too old to still be a Mod? I don't look like one these days...The wife wont let me.... Buy this image.
This is from a sample of work I was asked to produce to illustrate a childrens story. I was given a copy of the story and was able to pick any parts of it to illustrate. This image is of animals (and a tree) gathering round to listen to a story.
Drawn by hand then scanned in and coloured on the computer. This strip is for a corporate magazine of which I have been contributing to for over three years. I have left out the text on this version because it's an 'IN' joke with the company and wouldn't really make much sense and would take too long to explain. Hopefully you can just enjoy the drawing.... if I ever get round to sharing this blog with anyone!
I was told that by drawing a caricature of Osama, I was glorifying him... I can see the point being made, but on the other hand - history is history, and this is the day he was finally killed. Besides, less than half a dozen people have visited this blog since I started it, and I think four of those visits were me... so who the bloody hell is gonna care what image I put here!
I didn't like the first effort, so here's an updated version. I'm not a royalist, I'm not even a big fan of weddings but the Royal Wedding is all anyone is talking about today, so this is my way of joining in.
Harry Hill makes 'You've been Framed' funny with his voice over for the home video TV show and "Harry Hill's TV Burp!" is the only way to watch the TV in the first place....Other than that, I'm not sure why I did this caricature!
I thought I'd add a couple of images of myself... Pop Art style and as a Simpson character. I'm told that I always look miserable, I dont agree, I think it's just that gravity has an adverse effect on my features....
Some friends of mine went to Hyde Park in London and took part in the March For The Alternative....umm, march. Well, any way, that's why I did this one of the Labour Leader. I saw hisHyde Park speach on the TV in the evening.
