You Gotta Lotta Guts

*Disclaimer: This post contains scenes of a sexual and violent nature*

Last year I had the great pleasure of working with Picnic Studio again on the opening title sequence of B-movie comedy horror Double Date.

My task was to create keyframe illustrations for their animation team to use in the opening animated sequence. Continue reading…

Soup Life

9th August, 2018 // No Comments

When: Mid 2017
Duration: 30 mins (initially), 60 mins (post touch-ups)
What: Unenthusiastic man eating soup
Where: Wholefoods Kitchen, Bendigo, Australia
Details: I was inspired by the pose of this man and his seeming lack of his enthusiasm for life in general.

Vietnam: An Bang beach

8th August, 2018 // 6 Comments

Okay, *ahem* I’m just going to start talking here as if I last posted yesterday (not last November). I’ve been wondering around Vietnam the last few weeks and will have a few sketches to share. There are also a lot of non-Vietnam related sketches which all have their own essence and story.

An Bang Beach - Vietnam

When: July, 2018
Duration: 45 – 60 mins
What: Vietnamese lady shaking her fist in anger
Where: An Bang Beach, Hoi An, Vietnam
Details: This was the view in front of me at a beach restaurant on An Bang beach. They took ages to notice me and take my order. The banh mi I ordered had so much shrimp in it that it was impossible to eat comfortably. The couple to the left of me made me a little self-conscious as they watched countless shrimp spill out with every bite (some missing my t-shirt).

Pencil Training

Pencil Training

I always think it’s good to learn new things and expand your skillset. Over the last few months I’ve been MIA because I have taken on a new job role in order to expand my web development skills.

It’s a Monday to Friday, nine-to-fiver which takes an hour train travel in the morning and on the way home. That’s two hours a day.

Pocket sketchbook and pencilsRather than spending these two hours staring aimlessly into space, I’ve been instead choosing to capture the broad variety of fellow commuters I see every day in my pocket sketchbook. Here are a few so far…

Train sketch of man with backpack Train sketch of posing legs Train sketch of fat man with lollypopThe COL-ERASE pencils (above) are just lovely to draw with, and I’m doing pretty much all of my drawings with them. There are quite tricky to find depending on where you are but definitely worth a try.

I’ll be uploading more sketches of oblivious train travellers as I do them. Hope you enjoy!

A little bit of watercolour

Well, before I get into the colour I’d thought share one other pencil drawing following on from my last post about pencils:

Here is a duck lady enjoying her coffee, captured when I went to Green Refectory cafe. Continue reading…

Getting back to pencil…

14th May, 2017 // 2 Comments

Welcome back. The last few days I have been getting back into pencil. Since I found the brush pen, I’ve been working mostly in ink. I recently became conscious of neglecting my bread and butter, the pencil. As I feel I need to keep all my skills sharp, here’s are a few pencil creations I’ve done recently:

A floating gentleman on his mobile device. He’s floating. It looks like his eyes are closed but actually he is looking down at his phone, I just need to be better is all. CONTINUE READING…

Drawing Gifts

7th May, 2017 // 5 Comments

The bane of being able to draw things, means that for special occasions I find I generally have to make cards for people close to me, or at least “do a drawing” for them. I only blame myself, because I started doing it at a young age and feel I am expected to do it forever more. It’s not so bad if I plan ahead of time and come up with an idea.

The flipside is that when it comes to actual gifts, giving a drawing or picture becomes a good escape plan when stuck for present ideas.

Here are a few personalised gifts I’ve created for people in the last couple of weeks:

Cafe sketches etc.

Sweet Christmas. Here is some more brush-pen action for your procrastination:

Taking a break outside of the State Library of Victoria to eat my snacks, I drew this chap doing the chill.


The Nonsense Continues

18th April, 2017 // 4 Comments

I had an extended weekend of doing nothing too productive, in terms of artwork anyway. But here are the latest scribblings I’ve conjured:

This drawing of a lady in a cafe started off so harmlessly, and then it got out of hand quickly. CONTINUE READING…

Bad Hands

Welcome back. I have some sketch uploads for you, including some of the worst hands I’ve ever drawn and a Beetlejuice-inspired waiting room…
