I think my children's book story is going to involve a homeless pooch (bit like the one pictured) and a kid who befriends it. Star of the book being the dog - so the dog befriends the kid rather than the other way round.
Cheers, enjoy!

Second of 2 drawing I'm owing tonight!

The story: we had an excellent Ofsted inspection at school recently and were awarded 'good' overall which was brilliant news (also the inspectors gave special props to the Arts Faculty which was really good news) hence the cartoon skipping happily in joyment!


First of 2 tonight as I missed yesterday...I keep missing days...I'm a busy teacher! The drawing is proof as this is one of my many hard working year 11 students. I had 10 minutes just before lunch to look around my room at all the productive stuff going on and take it in - I am dead proud of my students! And had just about enough time to get this sketch down before they all legged it for lunch...!
Please comment and suggest future drawings...thanks!

Final drawing to make me up-to-date with daily drawings!!

I was surfing today and came across the news that Batman 3 (sequel to Batman Begins and The Dark Knight) has a release date of July 20, 2012. This is mega-exciting news to me as I am a massive Batman fan and the newest movies are my all time hence the Batman pic.

Please comment and suggest future draws!

Post no.2 of about 4 today as I'm catching up on lost daily draws! This is a 20 minute-ish drawing of the view from my studio window looking down at my greenhouse! The sun has now come out so I'm off to do a bit of gardening!!
Please comment and add suggestions for future draws.

Hey drawing fans! Here's a drawing a will be submitting to Illustration Friday's weekly topic. This week; Fearless. This is meant to be a cartoon of Bear Grylls emmerging from the jungle! I watched a thing on Discovery and got inspired.
Should be doing another 3 today in order to catch up so look back soon!
I have been drawing with Chinese brushes recently and having a great time too.

Hi drawing fans! Just 2 tonight unfortunately. It would have been three but one went really tits up (technical term that). So I guess that'll be two drawings tomorrow night...!

First, I have been doing Chinese brush drawing with the year 8 students at school and their work was brilliant today so I got in the mood after school to play around and experiment with brush drawing from real life - we have a load of thistles in the Art Dept for some reason so that's what I did - also on it was supposed to be the Chinese character for the letter 'K' as a stamp, but I made it backwards by accident! Besides the character was a lot more complicated than what I ended up with and so it is totally inaccurate but looks authentic.

Secondly, been watching Grease tonight while waiting for Ch4's Alternative Election program so this is a cartoon of Sandy!!
Enjoy for now, and see you tomorrow!!

Nuff said, Glee's on, CHEERS!

I admit I forgot and missed last night, I had company over and a busy social life took priority unfortunately, sorry fans! Here I give you DVP (double visual pleasure) by showing you the latest illustration job for a client at London Met Uni which will see publishing in print soon (I don't know what; paper/mag/book whatever!), and tonight's daily draw - IRON MAN!! I'm going to see the film tomorrow afternoon as it's Bank Holiday Monday and I can! Quite pleased with the turn out of this one as I did it in about 10-15 minutes!
