Recent Sketchbook Sketches

sketch 1

sketch 2

sketch 3

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/Drawlloween 2015 #8

inktober 8 zombie

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 7 haunted house

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.

Went a little overboard with ink on this one but that’s okay.

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.
