Sunday Sketchblog #63

On Tuesday I found time to pop along to this month's Art Macabre drawing salon at Cass Art Islington. The theme was A Midsummer Night's Scream...

Either I mistake your shape and making quite;
Or else you are that shrewd and knavish sprite
Call'd Robin Goodfellow: are not you he
That frights the maidens of the villagery;
Skim milk, and sometimes labour in the quern
And bootless make the breathless housewife churn;
And sometime make the drink to bear no barm;
Mislead night-wanderers, laughing at their harm?
Those that Hobgoblin call you and sweet Puck,
You do their work, and they shall have good luck:
Are not you he?

Sunday Sketchblog #62

If I'm not feeling very inspired, or just want to warm up my drawing fingers, I like to open up Pinterest and just draw the first few things that catch my eye. Hence this alarmed llama, terrifying clown-child, man vs chicken selection.

Illustration Friday: Worn

This week's Illustration Friday topic is 'worn'. I was thinking about things you wear than then get worn out. And how hard it can be to throw those familiar old favourites away.

Sing a song...


A little choir sketch from a poster I've been working on. I think the chap at the end might be a frustrated chorus dancer, longing for a life on the stage...

Illustration Friday: Children

Monday's child

I'm a Tuesday child myself, full of grace apparently...

Still thinking about swanning about in that lacy frock, clearly...

Visit Emma to see what lovely green things have grown in her sketchbook this week?

Illustration Friday: Sweet

To be honest, that much cake would probably be a little bit too sweet...

Flowers in her hair...

The sun is finally shining and all I'd like to do is swan about in a lacy frock with flowers in my hair. Sadly, real life intervenes and the reality is more nude tights and hair stuck in lipgloss. Oh well...

Sunday Sketchblog #59

I've had one of those weeks where nothing I draw seems to turn out right... sometimes trying new things is just exhausting and frustrating! So I ended up reverting to something familiar and straight forward, a self portrait.
