A couple of artworks created for an upcoming exhibition in Cradley Heath, each piece is a building/place of interest to me around the West Midlands. Both pieces have image transferred diagrams, text and images relating in some way to the building subject matter.
A couple of sketches from my small A6 sketchbook from the past 2 weeks. I’m trying to make myself draw more while I’m out of my workspace/studio.
I should probably focus more on quick gesture drawings of people walking past for some variety but I’m always drawn towards unusual architectural spaces and objects
Inktober and Drawlloween day 8- Zombie
I’m not the biggest fan of zombies, I’ve never really cared for them as a horror theme. I don’t mind some zombies- the ones in Resident Evil and Dead Rising for example but for the majority of the time I’m kind of meh about them.
I was stuck deciding on what I was going to draw for today but I scrolled through my inspiration/reference image folder and had this image of a lighthouse so I used that as a starting point, picked up my pencil and just went with it. Zombies stumbling towards a lighthouse because why not?
This is done with a Pilot V5 ink pen, water, black acrylic ink and a couple of Aquafine brushes on A5 250gsm paper.
Inktober and Drawlloween day 7- Haunted House
I have a weird love for old, creepy looking houses. As you can see, this one is occupied by friendly looking ghosts.
This is done with a Pilot V5 ink pen, water, black acrylic ink and a couple of small detail brushes on A5 250gsm paper.
Inktober and Drawlloween day 5- Werewolf
Went a little overboard with ink on this one but that’s okay.
This is done with acrylic ink, couple of brushes and a Pilot V5 ink pen in my A6 sketchbook.

Sometimes just making a mark on paper, putting paint down, splashing ink around gets me out of a restrictive headspace.
Don’t be tempted to overthink the marks that turn your tiny inklings into vibrant, expanding ideas.
Live Long and Prosper, ink and watercolour on paper.
I wanted to create a little something in memory of Leonard Nimoy, a kind and inspiring man to many.
Another quick illustration inspired by an Instagram post. This is inspired by a recent post from vanityvenom.

Double page in my Moleskine sketchbook- planning and ideas for a larger piece.
Mixed media- acrylic ink, cardstock, pen and cut text.
A small skull for today’s drawing. This is very scratchy and a little heavy-handed, not a good art day in general.
Beautifully stormy outside but still a terrible mood all day for some reason. Hopefully after quite a few cups of tea and a peaceful sleep I can feel better tomorrow.
