Sketchbook Sunday

It's been a pretty good drawing week, probably because i'm so busy and have actual work i should be doing. I'm off to Dunedin to visit my parents next week, which i am so happy about. Feeling very over-worked and wrung out lately.

Everybody still likes owls, right?

This is the preliminary sketchbook scribble plan for the painting I've started drawing up below. I've started painting it now but sadly i think i liked it better as a black and white drawing..

Sketchbook Sunday (even though it isn't Sunday)

It isn't Sunday but i haven't posted any drawings for ages so here are some things I've been drawing in my new sketchbook. It is bigger than my usual ones and has nicer paper plus I made a dustcover for it because that's how i roll.



 This is a tattoo design I'm working on for a really nice woman.

Time away

I just got back from a nice visit to Auckland. I've come back a bit more clear headed so I've actually been managing to draw again. My lovely friend Evie let me stay with her and her nice boyfriend and their nice pets (two pups! and Eddie the cat). I kind of went up for a market but it was a bit of a flop so i was really just there to drink milkshakes and eat dumplings and do fun silly crafts with a group of nice ladies.

 Cute but terrible coffee. I didn't have a single good cup of coffee in Auckland, always over extracted and yuck. Lucky the company was so good. 

 I wore one of my own temporary tattoos to the market to show how good they come out. Had a few people ask if it was real so i guess that's a pretty good sign.

  When i arrived Bronwyn handed me a Halloween bag of presents. Which had this amazing little deer lamp inside. Plus one of her fantastic neon bows. I don't know what i did to deserve this but I'm not complaining.
