We came across an art show on are way there. The apart summer show, it was a mix of pop and street art. Some really nice work in there, some of my favourites were, Joe Black, John Parkin, Sean Alexander and Conrad Roset. Definitely worth a look if you're near Great Marborugh street.
I have lots of sketches to show you this week. I've been practicing drawing facal expressions, noses and men as they are all things a find a bit tricky. I did do a lot more but I'll save them for another time.
I am really pleased with how a lot of these faces turned out. Used my dip pen for most of them too.
testing out different poses and pens. I like the girl in the glasses, think I will do more of her.
I think these two would make good characters.
Hoping to have some nice days out over the coming two weeks, I'll be taking my sketchbook with me so next update time I might have some London scenes to show you.
I haven't talked about what I've been reading lately. I am still making my way through the huge pile of books I bought a couple of months ago. Right now I'm reading "Catch-22 by Joseph Heller" and I got this two gems from a charity shop yesterday "Freaks of Nature by Mark S Blumberg" It's all about evolution and "Into the Silent Land by Paul Broks" thats about neurology, looks to be a bit like Oliver Sacks work.
Oh before I go remember last week I told you about my art trade with lokijki of http://terrifyingmonsters.com/. Well I did a guest comic for him in the week, I tried to make it look more like his style and use the character of me, that he drew. Take a look here, guest comic.
See you next week!
