Today I made felt superhero finger puppets. Need to finish a few things tomorrow, including stitching stars on Wonder Woman's skirt.

Also thought I'd upload pictures from London Film and Comic Con earlier this month - the Delorean, the Batmobile (including Bat Tax Disk!), and me being very green in front of a grey wall.

You wait 2 months for a blog post, then 2 come along at once!

Thankfully I've been really in the mood for drawing lately, hence the quick succession of posts!

This is developed from a sketch I did at Dr Sketchy's at Victoria Baths in April. It was a really interesting night and, although I always have life drawing tantrums at the time ("I CAN'T DRAW! WHY DO I BOTHER??!"), when I come back to the drawings there's usually at least something worth going back to.

Again, it's a rather poor quality image so the colour subtleties are completely lost, but it gives the gist of drawing at least!

"Don't act like you don't know the tune..."

So, it's been a while since I posted anything on here...

I've recently returned from an amazing week in Scotland, the forests and waters of Argyll have refreshed and inspired me. I'm also currently working as part of the BEAT:TENT:HOOKcommunity arts project, which is becoming pretty exciting! (Follow link for more info)

Last night I finally managed to do some work for an idea that's been kicking around in my brain for ages. These are some preliminary sketches for a band of skeletons, inspired by lines from Jason Webley's 'Dance While The Sky Crashes Down' -
Our band of skeletons are playing; don't act like you don't know the tune!"

Apologies for poor photo quality!

Once I've worked out a composition and have the whole band together, I want to transfer the gang onto a t-shirt with the phrase "DON'T ACT LIKE YOU DON'T KNOW THE TUNE"
