A Few Faces






Typical that i come down with the flu when i have several comms to finish. I ve been in bed since Sunday and i have not been able to lift a pencil, so its been proper flu, not man flu !! At least ive not smoked a fag for 3 days which is a blessing, lets hope i can quit for good!! Heres a few i did before i started coughing up bits of alveoli and wind-pipe

CHERYL" GHOUL"



Its Halloween and im watching the X-Factor. Cheryl Cole cant put a foot wrong at the mo, topping the music charts and appearing in this shite, although popular , tv series. I started to ball point her ( in my dreams) and ended up zombie-fying her and , yes, thats a maggott coming out of her canyon like dimple.

A Friends 40th




A commission for a friend. Tommy owns his own road construction company and this is him in the foreground with several mates. Many faults mainly with the composition and months of just drawing faces made drawing bodies and hands difficult, and an area i realise i need to practice on. Likenesses are pretty good tho, and it should raise a laugh when i give it him tomorrow. Drawn with pentel brush and prismacolour pencils
