I have received an award! Huzzah!
The very kind Justin Segal bestowed the Zombie Chicken award upon me.
(See Justin's great blog here)
Thanks very much Justin :)

In honour of it, here is a sketch of a chicken I did a while back.
He's not a zombie, but is supposed to be snooty, self-important, and a bit hubristic.

Something Different

Here's a sketch of a plant.
This is in actual real life pencil, rather computer drawing.
I thought the twisty creeper bits looked cool, so I drew it.

Patiently Explaining

Here's a sketch of a Mum patiently explaining something to a girl.
I think she's just about to break a bit of bad news.
I haven't done the hands yet, I always seem to leave them till last, but I wanted to get it put up.
Maybe I'll do a post of just sketches of hands.

More heads

I'm really trying to work on my heads at the moment,
as you can probably see.

I'll try and post some drawings with bodies as well soon :)

Cats, cats, cats

These are more on the cute and sweet side compared to the big cat I did in an earlier post.
I'm doing a whole bunch of them.

Prof. Dave Smallpillow

Prof Dave Smallpillow from the Open University in about 1972.
Dave says, "The square of the sine on the tangent frangilates quintiply."
Gosh he's clever.
And he makes it all sound so simple too.

Motorcycle Courier

This is a sketch of a Motorcycle Courier i saw at Euston station, taking a cigarette break.
He kind of stood out for me.
The sketch isn't caricatured at all, this is pretty much what he looked like.

Pear Shaped Man, Hurrying

I seem to like drawing pear shaped people, I don't know why.
Some of my pirates were fairly pear shaped.
Pear shaped characters do seem a bit more friendly, rather than someone with broader shoulders.
Maybe that's it
