Its a nice change to try different medium and i love to try my hand at watercolour especially during winter when i'm quiet with the caricatures. The winter landscape was drawn after a days walking in the beautiful Lake District and the second was taken after a days climbing in the High Peak . The sunset was breathtaking after a late summers day out.

From event to event to event during the summer this is my preferred mode of transport, a 1975 california imported T2 Bay window...'Dolly'.
From next year a similar VW will be my stall on the road at festivals and my home, a Caricature bus if you like . Park up, purpose built awning out, easel up and off i draw.
Here she is plus a few recent live faces ..

Sincere apologies for the lack of posts over the past month, i have been moving from one festival to another drawing frantically and, as usual, forgetting or just being too busy to take any shots. These shots were kindly taken by Joann, a fellow stall holder and seriously talented lady
. This event was Solfest, a fantastic 3 day music and art festival on the border of the Lake District and the Solway Firth...

After a dismal World Cup Campaign talk is rife of his imminent dismissal. His fault?? Personally, i think he made some wrong decisions regarding formation and playing his best players out of position but , 'at the end of the day'..(notice the football cliche there), the team were woeful and simply, not good enough!

Ive been neglecting the ol blog of late but still been busy drawing caricatures. I have had plenty of live events of late and once i get my act together i will post some faces. I have been working very hard on a new style and pushing the exaggeration somewhat with good results, so keep popping by!!!

Just taken order of a box of lovely Markettes from the good ol' US. I have loads of live work coming up so just been getting some fluidity practice in. I spend hours just drawing shapes and features concentrating on different line weight and the Markette are 'shit-hot' for their versatility. Heres a few random faces coloured with Art -stix.Sorry for picture quality and only the one photo for you to gauge likeness!!

It was great to receive these from a photographer who snapped me drawing at a wedding recently. I never usually see photos of myself from this side so it was a bit weird initially. At least you can see my set up ( although usually im on walkabout) . Click to enlarge
