Retro Poster Illustration

Some Posters I have been working on for the area where I live. I love the retro feel of these, which somehow increases their appeal and makes them more evocative than just a plain picture or photograph would be.

Graphic novel type illustration

I’m inspired by a lot of graphic novel type illustration at the moment. There’s some really great stuff out there and it’s really evolving as an Art form. I guess the thing with traditional hand-drawn illustration and art is, it

Neanderthal Picasso

An illustration I created for a piece entitled ‘Your more creative than you realise’ for Trendillustrated.com, which I really like. The article is based on the news of the recent discovery of cave paintings in Indonesia, which are the oldest

Lake Lugano – Oskar Koller

It’s been warm enough to get my paint brush outside in the open air where at first I struggled to remember what to do with it. I’ve been looking at the work of Oskar Koller again. His work is deceptively

Raw Vision – Outsider Art

An old publication but a new one for me Raw Vison is the only internatioanl journal of Outsider Art. First published in 1989 it has continually given an insight into the art of the “unknown, untrained geniuses” who are the

The Granny Alphabet

Always a champion of Granny style and fashionable old people I see that someone has brought out a set of books celebrating the subject. The two books, called The Granny Alphabet are by photographer Tim Walker and are full of

On the Telly

The good thing about drawing people from the telly is that they can’t see that you are doing it, although like real people they don’t sit still either!

Good Old Drawing

In some my earlier posts and when I first had the idea to start a blog the one thing I was sure about was that it was somehow going to be about drawing and sketching. My life has been followed

What’s the Story?

I like these sketches, it feels like they are telling a story. Which story I’m not sure? Maybe one about buildings, that had people living in them and then they all left because a plague arrived, or better still, because

Tayasui Sketches

These are my first attempts at sketching with an i-phone app. This one is called Tayasui Sketches, that’s the app not the sketches. The sketches are called Morcote and Excelsior, after the places where they were sketched…which is original! I

Modern Songs as Retro Vinyl

I love these reworked vinyl singles by Robert Penney who has taken records by The Libertines and Lady Gaga and reworked the sleeves as they might have looked had they been released in the sixties. With most music now bought

Almost Autumn

Experimenting with Copic marker pens as Autumn approaches! Markers are faster than watercolours but on the downside they are even less forgiving. Like a red wine stain on your Axminster, once the colours on the page there’s no taking it

The Wedding Party

Everyone like a wedding, or so I’m told! The Men get to wear their suits and the Ladies get to wear that green Ann Demeulemeester dress that they bought three years ago and have only worn once since. This one
