Caricatures of ME

I have started a new blog to post caricatures I have had done of me by artists around the world. There are links to each artist next to their drawing.

Check it out.

Quick gesture of beetles

I did 1 minute digital sketches of the beetles, I quite like the result. I only looked at each of them once so it was kind of gestural.

Having Fun

Ok, I'm starting to approach the way I work in a different way now. Basically I care less what people think as long as I'm happy with my work than thats all I'm worried about. I spent so long doing gig after gig that I found the enjoyment of the work slowly fading as it became my job. Although I love doing live work I did not need to take as much on as I was doing, so I have stepped back slightly still doing live events just not as many, concentrating more on commisions and illustrations as well as my fine art work. This seems to have done me a world of good, relaxing and just enjoying what I'm doing which is really why I started this in the first place.
I'm now drawing how I want to draw without worrying about the out come, people either like it or don't and I'm now happy with that, I have not had any complaints anyway. So here are a few recent ones which I had a real laugh drawing, sorry no reference photos I will have to start trying to get some while I'm working, it just slows me down:(

One in Colour

Heres a quick themepark style drawing in colour.

Back to the Gigs

Ok another gig using different pens, just a cheap black felt I found in the bottom of my bag, I think there worked out quite well considering all my other pens were dead.

Another recent commision

Heres one of the latest pieces of work I've done.

Work done before the Wedding

This is a commision I did before the wedding

Wedding Day

Ok , I am going to start posting a lot more, sharing my thoughts as well as my art work. Now that my wedding day is over and done with I can start getting stuck into some work.

Unfortunately this year I will be missing out on going over to the NCN convention and meeting up with some good friends and some of the best artists I have ever met. I will also miss out on the Kruger workshop that I was hoping to go to. But I got married instead, Oh well maybe next year.
