Absinthe Frappe

The other day on Twitter (that's a very modern sentence, innit?) there was a conversation between Simon Gane, Faz Choudhury, Jamie Smart and Rob Davis (instigated by Jamie) about ice cream-based alcoholic drinks. Simon mentioned that whilst in New Orleans he'd seen a bar offering an Absinthe Frappe. It was then decided that I was the man to draw "Absinthe Frappe". To quote Jamie "a crime-solving sleuth probably with a bone disease, dislikes sunlight, wears a white suit, loathed by all crime syndicates, likes an obscure tobacco". Well, here he is...

The Angel Gang

The other day on Twitter, pencil-genius Warwick Johson-Cadwell asked what he could draw in the 30 minutes he had left at home before he went out to sea (yes, you heard right - out to sea!) I requested the Angel Gang. Warwick dutifully obliged and asked me to draw them in return so here they are - Mean Machine, Link, Pa and Tom Petty, er sorry, Junior. I've missed Fink. He was never really one to turn up for family portraits anyway.

Two Dudes/Creatures

Two dudes who may, or may not, be forthcoming Felt Mistress creatures.

Seventies Cop with Donut

For those old enough to remember, this pic works best whilst listening to the theme from Barney Miller.

More Sketchbook

Some bits from the sketchbook yesterday - cloud hair, suave gent and some dude from the excellent "Facehunter" book. I'm back on the grey Pitt pens at the moment. I loves 'em!

I had a great weekend drawing at Eurocultured. I was working alongside friends, Hammo and Guy McKinley and met up later with a lot of Twitter friends (who all turned out to be real people!) so it was like a proper day out. I even had some free POSCAS and free noodles. For more shots of the weekend visit the Flickr stream of "Sheila Blige" to see some great progress shots and Hammo and Guy's pieces in all their glory.
