So here's the piece I submitted for the charity auction in work. Its a piece I did ages ago for a boulder gallery Franners was doing. It's originally part of a triptych but Sinead loves the other drawings so i kept them. Probably do some more now too.

The piece itself is an A6 postcard drawn using blue ink. Think my favorite umbrella is the one at the back.

2 posts in one night!

So in work we have a gallery set up for a charity auction. And Estrela and Bianca have been pushing for people to produce some work. The image I submitted was an old "umbrela" one so I'll post that tomorrow. But here's the image I did tonight.

Obviously I'm a huge Mignola fan, and well it does have an effect on my work. But hey, that can't be bad right. The image is named after the song I was listening to on the way home from work today, by the great Wolf Parade.

It was maybe gonna be a profile pic change for facebook too.

Life drawin'

So Boulder has set up life drawing sessions for us in work. Been a couple of years since I sat in a room doing this, so alot of the work was fairly rough, but I was happy with a couple, and most had some sections I liked.  They were all gesture drawings ranging from 30 secs to 5 mins.


 The First 2 were from the first 30 mins section. The first drawing was picked out during the review as a good drawing by the people in the class. Was a bit shocked by that. The last drawing was picked out during the second review. It was picked for the change in approach I used. I tried to use purely straight lines for it. I wanted the pose to look ridget like model appeared to be.

Within 5 minutes of being in the class I was pretty happy. Although I dropped into some old techniques I like to think Beth Spenader was sitting behind me egging me on again. The drawing off the page was at times a deliberate thing. Working on A3 I wanted the drawings to be too big for the page (something Beth use to encourage me to do in college)
