Dancing Mushrooms

I had an afternoon of being spoken to about something boring... 3 hours sitting and listening is far too long for me! Thank goodness for my sketchbook and pens. I added colour when I got home.

Can you explain the illustration? can you tell the cats tails are on the womans coat? Do I need a caption? its so difficult to tell these things on my own work.
Please let me know what you think!

Drawings on Stones

I went to a secluded beach situated on the Suffolk coast called 'Shingle Street' the other day. I collected some stones of interesting shapes. I started to draw on them. This is one I finished... I think they make perfect paperweights!


I have the task of creating some art work using a media I am unfamiliar with. All my work is 2D so I was thinking about doing somme work in 3D...? eeekk! I made a head on saturday out of modeling clay.

Sunny Delight

Ever wondered what was in Sunny Delight? I never really liked Sunny D but always pursuaded my Mum to buy it in giant bottle form because it said 'Florida Style' and I always thought it would be exactly like drinking proper freshly squeezed Florida orange juice and would really believe that one sip would remind me of sunshine, beaches and Disney world. It never did, although I would always fool myself into believing that it did hold a slight resemblence because I didnt want to be dissapointed and my brain really did want to be taken back to disneys splash mountain and mickey mouse parades. So I still kept on asking my Mum to keep on buying it, and I kept on drinking glass after glass full of illumionus gloop... gosh advertising really is a powerful tool. This continued for many years until eventually I asked my Mum to stop buying it when I noticed in tiny writing at the back of the bottle label the words 'Made in Ireland'.
If you are like me and ever wondered what you actually consumed vast quantitys of as a 90's 'Sunny D' child drinker... Well now you know.

Amsterdam Airport

I had a wonderful time in Amsterdam visiting my very good friend and very good graphic designer Tom. Although waiting at the airport thinking about going home back to england was a bit depressing... so I cheered myself up by drawing stuff (particularly around WiFi area because they had comfortable chairs there!).

Illustration Friday: 27/02/09 BREEZY

The theme for this weeks illustration friday is Breezy. I thought this liberating drawing of two elderly people in wheelchairs rolling down a hill was rather fitting.
