A billion Elephants..

I saw this quote somewhere and have been waiting to illustrate it for ages. All I want to know though is: Who is doing the dropping? Where did all the elephants come from? Questions that I think we need to know answers to...Wikileaks anybody??

Arty reasons to catch a train

Due to the cold snap and iffy back I caught the train a few times. Bloody expensive! It's good fun though to stare at people, surreptitiously, so here are a few sketches from the train. They may appear in illustrations later...

brave again

I had misgivings about the first version of this picture , but wasn't quite sure what it needed, so here it is again, much reworked, and much better for it I think.

when I were a lad...

Here is a picture of when I were a lad. Ah! I remember the days.... I had bright starry eyes, lashings of curly hair and rows and rows of golden yellow teeth...uh?
Did I have pierced ears too? well, I probably wanted them at some stage. I know I wanted a tattoo for about an hour and a half once. Just to be different, like everyone else. Perhaps i'm just nit-picking..

We have been doing some Damien Hirst-type stuff with the kids and I thought we should share it!

nude study

I was puzzling over this drawing, nice drawing I thought. Then, in the spirit of experimenting I decided to take it elsewhere.

Hockney good news!

News is spreading fast that David Hockney has got an ipad. In tribute i thought I would knock something up, quick-ish. Unfortunately I don't have one and had to make do with a coloured pencil and some old fashioned stuff called paper. Still. Good fun!
