Some pencil sketching




After using a marker for months drawing live , it felt strange to hold a pencil again. Such a simple implement to use but a bastard to master, Jan Opdebeecks says a pencil sketch shows the soul of the artist. Heres a few famous boat races drawn from a daily paper whilst on holiday

Kendal Calling 2009







I ve just returned from this 4 day music festival in the NW of England. 6000 attended this great event and most of them were a caricature artists dream with their piercings, wacky hats , tattoos and dreadlocks. Drawing all day and revelling all night while listening to the likes of The Zutons, Ash, Idlewild and The Streets i am now absolutely knackered. Saying that, it was a good way to wile away a long weekend and il be trying some more fgestivals soon, that is , when my liver and lungs have recovered!!
