FIGURATIVELY SPEAKING

Hey Folks,

He is a quick upload of a sketch I did in my book. I started out with a drawing of the head and wasn’t planing on going any further than that. But then realised it would be fun to drawing the figure too. And so I did. And it was.

PRACTICE MAKES PERFECTLY

Hey there,

I accidentally deleted this on Marsedit and don’t now if I can get it back so I’ll just redo.

I’ve had a fair bit of time taken up with attempting to recover money from an unpaid invoice and my deposit and additional money from my Dutch apartment which has left me me un an ungood mood, which has affected the last image in particular I think.

At any rate, I’m enjoying this and can defiantly see progress, which is nice. The 3rd – sly smile image is my favourite.

Underground Art

Last month I took part in the London Underground show on Regent’s Park. Along with the art in the station there was a private view at The Frameless Gallery in West London which a total of 8 people turned up to.

BD3A1931

A special feature (which I paid extra for) was having the top copy underneath the frame. I was assured this would be corrected and was overjoyed to see that it never was.

The piece is actually really old which was originally done for a scammy art show in Hong Kong at postcard size and scanned it at a stupid high resolution. Anyway I never got the originals back so the scans are all I have. Since they are so high-res I ended up throwing them on Society 6 as posters (and a couple of other POD sites but its so hard so keep up with all 3 of them)

Anyway the print, along with other stuff, is available as a print, t-shirt, mug, shower curtain (??) and other stuff on Society 6. Link below!

Feel free to say hello or shower me with undeserved praise.

Cheers,

Portrait Pratical

Once again I am trying to actually do something with my blog (I find it very difficult to bring myself to say blog) and I really don’t know if this even gets looked at so I hope I’m not talking to myself as that is the first sign of madness, I’m told.

Anyway I’ll carry on in the same way I like to shout at nobody in a bus station. Since I have some spare time I am taking the opportunity to practice my drawing skills by drawing a series of portraits (outside of all the other charming aspects of running freelance business). Something I haven’t done for a while.

I am largely focussing on hair, which is the only thing I am referencing as well as making a big effort to draw a wider variety of expressions. I have ordered The Artist’s Complete Guide to Facial Expression by Gary Faigin which is apparently very good and has a picture of a smiling man on the cover.

Here we are so far..
