Working in the Middle East

Its been a long time since I have posted anything on here. Extremely busy year so far, have just got back from working in the Middle East, an amazing experience but very hard work. Drawing live for the opening of huge shopping malls, there where thousands of people which meant me having to draw to an very fast pace. Around 2 mins a drawing this as you can imagine was very difficult although I feel I have gained something from the job as I have never work that fast before.

Hi guys,
This was in Kuwait,
Niall I have loads of photos and video footage, I'm just a bit unsure as to post it. as I was told by the company not to show the
drawings with the kids in!
I still might post some when I get them all back.
Matt are you living back here now?
