Doodle (actually...more like a character design) #22

If I've learned one thing in all my years of drawing, it's that I love drawing scarves.

Doodle #20


Adam Had 'Em Flyers

Wahey! These aren't doodles, I'm afraid, but actual flyers I did last month. It was a real last minute job, and considering, I think they turned out okay. The actual prints the promotor got made came out so dark the illustration became almost unrecognisable...but hey, the client was happy, and that is what counts. I actually enjoyed doing these, I think, with a bit more time, the 'ship front' theme could be quite fun for the future flyers...we shall see. On another note: The Carolines are my brothers band, and they do truly rock. In the most old-fashioned, rocking sense of the word. Do check them out, if you enjoy the odd bit of rock and roll.

Hope you're all doing well!

Doodle #17

Quick (reeeeal quick) Sunday sketch. This is an old character that I'm re-working. It's not going to win any awards yet, but I already, in this loose format, prefer this version of the character to the one I designed 2 years ago. Hopefully I've started on the right lines! Happy Sunday to you all.

Doodle #15

This was an experiment. This experiment did not work. :(

I'm actually not a fan of drawing 'nature documentry' illustrations...I think if the animals look too close to life, you may as well look at a photo. And yet, here I am. Drawing animals relatively realistically. Sigh. I blame it all on the fact that it's a Friday night...(I always do, even on a Tuesday...)

Doodle #14

Another quick drawing, I put a dash of colour in it to make it a tad more interesting...but I have been colouring all day and couldn't face a tiny bit more. I'm sorry, I cracked! *Cries into hands*

Doodle #12

It's been a while since I've drawn a raccoon, so I thought; hey, why not?!
I'm a bit disappointed with the way the colours and textures scanned on this one, but hey, here it is!

Doodle #9

This one's a bit different from my usual stuff, but I hope you like it! I was watching a music video of a girl running through a Scandinavian wildiness, and thought to myself: 'That might be quite nice to draw.' True story. So here it is...but really, it was just an excuse to smudge all my pencil lines.

Sorry for the lack of a post yesterday too, there were a lot of problems with Blogger as I'm sure you know. I will do an extra doodle to make up for it! Thanks, as always, for visiting!

Doodle #7

Here we go! This is waaaay more detailed than I intended, but let's just say it's too make up for yesterday's rather rushed effort. It has to be said though, that I'm not so sure I can keep them up at this level of detail, I think it may kill me. Hah. But I hope you like it!

I went to 'The Making of Tangled' this week; a presentation by some of the Disney movie staff at the Curzon cinema in Soho, London, and it was incredible. Really, really incredible. So inspiring, the artwork and animation was horrendously brilliant, and I got to meet Animation Supervisor Clay Kaytis, the Look and Lighting director Mohit Kallianpur and talent development director Dawn Rivera-Ernster...all of whom were absolutely awesome and friendly, in equal measures. So i thought I'd do a little Rapunzel of my own today, is it was on my mind...

Doodle #6

Oooo...another one just in time. A bit rough around the edges today as I've spent the whole time frolicking in London, but I plan to get it all back on track and have coloured doodles tomorrow!

Doodle #3

I've seen a few artists drawing their dogs recently, so I thought I might jump on the bandwagon, as it looked like a nice bandwagon to be on. Here's my dog; Max (Maxamillion Decimus Armacaninus)

Doodle-a-Day...Begins Today!

Hello everybody!
I'm going to try and do this 'Doodle a Day' thing in an effort to keep this blog nicely updated and to keep me experimenting and drawing different things whilst working on comissioned work I am as yet unable to show you lovely readers. I may do it for a few weeks...or even a month...I'll see how it goes. I hope you enjoy them!

I am usually a pretty slow illustrator, so this may be quite a challenge for me (this is also an exercise for me to speed up with my colouring...the part of the process I am slowest at...yeeesh, look at me; using words like 'exercise'.), I beg of you not to tar and feather me if I crumble and collapse under the weight of my insane doodle-a-day ambitions. The amount of times I have had to wash tar and feathers off this year is just getting ludicrous, as I'm sure you guys know. This first doodle is a bit of a cheat, as it's also being used as the banner for the Soupa Network website this May, but hey, I maaaay need a headstart. START YOUR ENGINES! Bbbrrrmmmm.
