Girly banner!

Quick sketch I drew before bed last night as my new cover image for facebook. Tried colouring it just now, not happy with the coloured version. So, I'm posting the black and white again.

Life drawing

Here's some life drawing from the start of april. Exploring internal construction. It resulted in a return to blind drawing for me. Probably one of my favourite drawing techniques.

Started with some abstract shape gestures

Moved to graphite, build up from the center

Monday Mate - Ross!

 Today's Monday mate is Ross from backgrounds! Still can't pick which I prefer more between the first 2. Think the green one got his eyes right.

Second attempt.
Very first attempt, from when Ross was in the internship.

Singing building!

At a function tonight, so this is a slight cheat. Saw this building on the way to work this morning. 

Thought it looked like it was singing!


 No scanner tonight, so this is a little rougher than I wanted. This is inspired by Jennifer Connolly in Labyrinth. Thought she was stunning in this when I was younger. Am gonna finish this.
Think it's gonna look something similar to the facebook tease I posted earlier tonight. Like the reflection thing, and it suits the "character". Just couldn't get it to work with the double glazing in the house.

Ray Quigley!

 For tonight's Monday mate, I'm posting the legend, Ray Quigley.

This is my favorite one

Obviously the first version without the stubble.
This one is where I pushed the square shapes.

This last one was done for fun. Myself and Neev tried to do quick sketches of people and this is the one for Ray. He is pretty "sexy" alright.

Boulder Artblog post!

This month's theme was "Animal Behavior", so I had to do something involving this guy!


Happy Birthday Ro!!!

Happy Birthday to my my cuz, Ro Teehan.

Ro had a big influence on a young Jamie. Ro used to give me subjects to draw when he was babysitting me, let me and my sister stay up and watch Quantum Leap repeats and then later in life, he looked after a naive kid when he'd stupidly drink too much! Oh Boy!

This is obviously the showing my work again, building up to the one I like most. Will probably take another stab at this sometime again. I've marked 2 drawings in it. The top left corner is a drawing of Ro I did while at the pub with him. The second is the one that became the foundation for the favoured one.

Hope you have a cracking day Ro!
