Big hair

This is somewhat exaggerated. Big hair, many frills, much jewelry but (most important) – highly content.


Woodentop

Experiment in representing form through contours – similar to a map. The subject could be carved from a block of wood. I’m quite fond of the effect, which was largely accidental. In the ‘must try again’ category.


Bun Lady

A hairstyle you don’t see too often these days. Reminds me of a (terrible) joke: did you hear about the woman who was electrocuted at a bakery? She stood on a bun and the currant ran up her leg. Boom boom. I’ll wager the lady in the picture would not approve.


Not Amused

not-happyMost people don’t bat an eyelid when you sketch them on the train – perhaps because they generally don’t notice. This man, was sort of an exception. While there were no obvious hostilities, I didn’t really get the impression he was all that pleased. It could have been the staring (me) or the loud munching of a packet of crisps (someone else). The latter was definitely a bit tedious.


In Asquith, waiting for a train

AsquithProving that you can draw pretty much anytime, anywhere. Knocked this out while waiting to meet someone from the train, sitting behind the wheel of our car (wasn’t driving – I’m lacking in multitasking abilities). You don’t really need to be in a ‘remarkable’ location, just what you do with it, I suppose. The parked car is perhaps rendered a little too freely – would be fantastic if you could buy a model like the one in the drawing (assuming you can make it out). Probably wouldn’t handle the best, though.
