I was on a train to Cardiff first thing in the morning and a man came round with a buffet cart. He startled me so much I ordered coffee. It was cheap coffee but did the trick. I felt much the same effect as this poor dragon.
Well I wouldn't say this is actually a picture of London. I was just thinking of Wordsworth and Turner when I drew this piece. I think its because Question Time is on the TV next to me (darn you Nick Griffin and your distracting ways, you strange, strange man!).
Its a happy duckie. I went to Bristol today to meet up with my mate Kate (hello Kate, I know you're reading this =P) it was great and I got to draw a lot on the train there and back. I drew this guy on the way back, he's a possible design for a friends birthday card :] I also started character designs for the Egyptian kids book. I'm really excited for it, it looks like fun project :D :D That's all from me now, I'm going to fall asleep whilst the other half watches Stargate for "research" :)
So the plans to make a children's book based on an Egyptian story are continuing. This little fella is quite far from the designs I have in mind but he's still cute so he wins. Must work on posing characters.. Hmm. Anyways! I'm off to Bristol tomorrow to visit my mate Kate. Fun times had by all. :]
Well its getting nippy out and I've spent most of today with gloves on and a hoodie. Admittedly I've also been indoors but that's not the point, I've still experienced the biting cold. I'm really happy with this picture. The wind looks just how I want it to and so, infact, does the boy- except maybe the mouth but that's not important in the scheme of things. In other news I got, and built (with the fiance's help) a lovely new desk today so I can draw and work properly now! Yay!
You wouldn't believe I'd spent most of today down the beach and talking about making a kid's book based on Egypt? Anyway its been a lovely day, even if it featured a lot of forms in the later half. Anyways this started out as some kind of building, then machine, then costume design then.. Well I don't know where it ended up. Enjoy!
Drawing-A-Day is Mim's little project. Everyday she has to draw a picture good enough to post onto this blog. For anyone who's tried it you will know just how difficult this project is. It can't be just any old image it has to be good, interesting or tackle a problem. Before Mim did this for 100 days but now she's pushing the bar further than ever!
