Phat marker put to sugar paper after being surrounded by Caiporera, good tunes and top friends, returning home in good spirits this is what became ......

a bamboozlement of drawings recently done in a very battered beaten up sketchbbok given to me for my birthday.... thankyou Theodore ( to be messed around with and colours added no doubt!!)

latest sketchbook scribbles

Yet again more pen to paper action from my minature adventure to Belguim!

Taken home and colours added on photoshop(more colours to be added and experimented with soon)

To combat the immense boredom and the shouting senior citizens arguing with me about the price of stool softener this "average day at work " piece was designed on a scrappy piece of paper tucked away in my pocket.... it's always nice to put a positive spin on something so darn negative as a bad day at work!!!

(hoping to add a green prescription background to this piece when a plain one can be found...)

Another Print done on my travels ( hmmm a regular theme gathering regarding what I do when i'm out exploring!) after a very busy first year as a Nat diploma I dissapeared loaded with pens, pencils and lots of markers into a remote Cornish Town with some dam good company...

(marker pen and pastel pencils)

Continuing working with a different background another pattern created on my Belgian adventure was given a new identity thanks to a "bruised" painting I had made recently.
At the momento this pattern is being cut out so it can be transferred into a collage.

Titled "last day of freedom" (For the soon to be groom Chris Miles!!)
A pattern originally scribbled whilst under the english channel on our way to Belguim. On his last night of freedom a get together was had and these colours were put to the print in celebration for Chris...(many other colour schemes have been done and will appear when finishing touches have been applied)

The Bon' Doctah....

Inspired by a King Tide song, I seemed to scribble out this man of voodoo ritual based madness one whilst listening to the "Our Dearly Deported" album. (Many thanks to the iron Monk for recommending such a thing!)

It was then scanned in on photoshop and a different textured background was added after spotting an old scratched up sheet of perspex in a skip out the back at college... sometimes it pays to be a snouty so and so!!

Restless Terrence's Birythdee carrd!!
Something a little different for my very good friend on his birthday ( he certinately doesnt look his age! happy birthday my good fellow!!)

a new scribble put together recently and has had a little attention on photo shop tidying up the scribbly layer i dedcided to draw upon!! more to be done to this ghetto blaster wielding fellow soon

" a million miles from adelaide"-
soon to be sent to a good friend and fellow bogan on the other side of the pond . The title of this piece shows how far i feel from actually getting out to visit after shaking on an unbreakable promise!!
still it is needed to be tidied up immensley before it can grace a jiffy bag ready to go down under...... but the colour scheme is spot on to the request!!!

some dashing colour added to a surreal fellow !!! much work is needed on his jumper!! but fair dues this is my first attempt!!! lessons with the jedi knights of photoshop are on the cards at college......
early photoshop work, using a half coloured in pen drawing, probably the first proper time i have got to grips with such an application.....and definately something that i will be using again in the future...... nice to see flat works coming to life....

Carrying on the creation of monsters Bruno, pictured left who currently lives with Chodester has asked me to make him a female companion, who will be living with a certain miss le bianco, and no doubt have an italian flare to her. So far she is made of faded red t-shrt material and donning a pair of silk bloomers... more posts to come once she is close to being completed.....

Theodore's Wall Art

After wrestling waves and folding his board in the surf at Perranporth it was time for Theodore to retire this object of desire to the wall, a couple of sharpies later and it is perfect company for the aboriginal snake seen also in the shot....respect to the man of the spectacle empire and my best friend...

belgian break down in deepest darkest essex

waiting for a tow truck to rescue us from the smallest service station forecourt in cuthroat essex where rudeboys take pleasure in leaning on other people's car i came up with this handsome beast of a character, maybe based on someone i may have spotted....
The pattern came from waiting impatiently to sort out a trip to see Chodster and Bluecat.... its amamzing what a little anticipation can do...!!!
A photoshop session to add colur is in the pipeline!!

lots and lots of new skills being picked up in class at the mo, developing ideas into totally different pieces of work.
Experimenting running from time in moving image, plus teaching a cctv camera to think for itself.
Possible trek for more musical inhalation in norwich later on tonight, but who knows!!!
