Today was the inaugural Chipmas (the Saturday before Christmas from now on - please amend your calendars forthwith). Me and Louise made our way to Sheffield (the spiritual home of Chipmas) and chips were consumed and a good time was had by all. Thanks to Kipi and Jamie for hosting this event, Mike and Katie for procuring the pies (despite overwhelming odds!) and for lifts and for Jon for clearing his plate like a good boy (for evidence of Jon's egg laden meal click HERE). Thanks also to Kipi's bunnies and the Two Steps chip shop. Merry Chipmas everyone!
This is a drawing of the man who delivered my Amazon parcel today. He was, what can only be described as, a human tortoise. Don't get me wrong, he was very pleasant but, boy, he sure did look like a tortoise! I like to imagine that he was having a courier's delivery race with another driver with big, floppy ears who was so sure he'd win that he was having a snooze in his van somewhere.
Some recent artwork I did for a record cover pitch. I got the job but the finished article will have no figures on it just objects (it's going to be a nice sleeve but I love drawing people). There's an animated TV ad to go with it. I'll let you know once it's in the shops and on the box.
An interesting character I saw this week - hi-visibility jacket, mutton chop sideburns and a "Top Gun" baseball cap. I committed him to memory (well, you would, wouldn't you?) to draw at a later date. Unfortunately, the woman I saw on the train today wearing a homemade John Barrowman t shirt couldn't really be captured in a sketch.
Two recent live drawing pics. Both at recent DoodlePlanet events (one in Chester, the other at Glyndwr university - doing it for the kids, yeah). I swapped the top piece for a painting by Mr Kimmings. Good ol' Joolsy! I also had the pleasure of drawing next to Rich AKA Ume Toys.
