Dog days of summer.

Posted on

This week was International Dog Day (I would never know if not for hashtags), and it reminded me of my dog growing up, Denny. His fav thing was to waddle out into the sun (he was rotund, guys) and lay in an empty flower box in the sun.

I mean, it’s not a BAD way to spend a day!

Anyway, I had to do a quick memory sketch of him ❤

Here’s a throwback to wee baby me in 1980/81 with Denny. He was definitely my pal! (Even if my face suggests uncertainty, lol)

Last sketches of 2015

Posted on

This October – December was the busiest on record, what with starting a new show at the studio, piles of freelance, and selling and buying a house…… so sadly my sketches took a backseat. I managed to squeak out a few, here they are!

For Inktober 2015:

A couple sketches in time for “Back to the Future” Day! [Brush pen on Moleskine sketchbook.]

And of course a sketch of our cat Mowgli in his favourite position.

I managed to fit in two commissions done as Christmas gifts for clients. The first one was for a couple who had just gotten married and loved trees, hence the background. The second was for someone who is a composer. Both digital.

Life has been CRAZY lately with lots of work [most of which I cannot post!], so I wasn’t able to do as many Inktober sketches this year as I would have liked. HOWever, I managed to squeeze out a few, here they are 🙂
