Happy Christmas 2013.

Well, 2013 has been yet another wonderful year for me. Along side producing illustrations 
for various publications, I have also been very busy designing, teaching, creating personal 
commissions and working in a variety of creative areas. I can't thank you all enough for your 
support and lovely comments. It's all very humbling. 
2014 is already shaping up to be yet another exciting year. I'll be announcing all of my latest
 projects in the near future and I can't wait to tell you all about them (stay tuned, folks).
Thank you all once again and I wish you all a very Happy Christmas 
and all the best in the New Year.
I salute you all.

Phone Portraits

Whilst queueing or waiting for the kettle to boil, I've had a lot of fun 
creating these portraits on my mobile phone, merely for my own amusement.
Can you name them all ?...
(The answers are in the 'Labels' section at the bottom of this post, 
although they are not in order. A-ha! A game within a game!)

Live sketch: London Underground Central Line.

Here's a live sketch I drew whilst travelling across the Central Line on the London Underground. I set out with a rough composition in my head, positioned myself at one end of the carriage and drew the various passengers as they boarded and left the train, filling the various positions I had designated in my mind and on the page. Admittedly, it was a very tricky/ testing exercise I had set myself, but I thoroughly enjoyed the challenge. In many ways, it was more about watching, observing, and mentally recording information than drawing. I'm also very thankful that my pen didn't run out :)
