A spur of the moment painting...

I happened across this photo posted by my friend and author Sally Lloyd Jones last night…

I liked the only window and decided on the spur of the moment to draw it, so below is the Procreate illustration I came up with. I pretty much never try to copy a photo so this was quite a nice challenge for me.

Must Be Talking To An Angel

I’ve been working on a private commission for a client in Japan so I haven’t had much time for drawing today. Here’s a quick Procreate sketch based on the Eurythmics song “There Must Be An Angel” which for some reason was stuck in my head. Sometimes its good to start a drawing with no real idea of where it’s going or what it’s about.

The Boy Who Lived

Here’s my latest evening Procreate sketch, inspired by my brothers podcast recommendation, Potterless  - Harry Potter, the boy who lived!

After drawing this I thought I’d try out Stefan Kunz’s amazing letter grids which I’d been meaning to do for months. I definitely need to work on my lettering but the grid worked really well. I really recommend them.

2019 Year of the Blog...?

Hello potential reader. I’ve decided to start a blog, seems like as good a time as any. I’d like to have a place to put work and things that isn’t on someone else’s platform. So here we go.  

 

First up here’s a couple of recent iPad drawings made in Procreate

It’s the last day of the Christmas holidays today so we went for a walk on The Rumps to try and stave off the dread of the approaching school morning....
