More March Sketchbook…

Image
More pages drawn in pen and ink on location, even if that location is outside my front door in the morning.

Weekend Doodles…

Image
A bunch of drawings from this weekend. Drawn with a variety of pens and pencils.

Today, Wakefield Sketches…

Image
Trying to get outside more, and back into the habit of drawing from life, instead of my imagination. I think I’m happiest when the two are intermingled. It is a hard task and I’m out of practice, the wind is up and I’m squinting more than I should be. Helen’s drawing as well (and not complaining), she’s giving me cause for concern as her drawings are a lot better and more complete than mine. I persevere.

Snails in the Garden…

Image
Got these chaps in the post yesterday. Printed and Die Cut Snail Cards which I did drew for Faceless’s new outdoor performance.

I forgot to mention…

I saw the abomination of a film  ‘The Wolfman’ remake the other week, so disappointed in it that I instantly forgot about it. Anyway, fancied drawing a Wolfman so here it is. The film is technically awful, miscast and poorly edited. The scenes chop and change without explanation and the CGI is pretty pathetic. Benicio Del Torro is wooden, Anthony Hopkins recycles his Hannibal Lecter and the music is from umpteen Danny Elfman scored movies.
I have fond memories of Oliver Reed’s ‘CURSE OF THE WEREWOLF – 1961’ (which is the same story and I think this is why I’m so critical of The Wolfman). I’m also critical in that it got okay reviews and a big ad campaign  and cost me and the two other people who saw it with me £7.50 to see. Download this film illegally, buy pirate copies, Universal should be beyond this crass quality and need to be taught a lesson.

Listening to Fever Ray..

Image
Listening to Fever Ray is great to draw to, ended up distracted from
what I was supposed to be doing and drew this.

A Day Out…

Image
Sunday 7th March saw us cycling to Farmer Copleys Farm shop just outside Pontefract. The weather is brilliant and it’s good to be out and getting the heart pumping. On the way back we made a quick diversion to The Kings Arms at Heath and stopped to have a pint of Guinness, I sat in the garden drawing this with my dip pen and ink…
