Xmas




I tend to go a bit mad each year with the Christmas doodles... guess this year will be no exception

before and after


Here's a little detail from an activity book I'm working on.
The little baby on the mans chest is based on my little cherub, Bonnie :)

Rusty


My dear old dog Rusty sadly passed away a few weeks ago. He was a beautiful old boy, and I miss him loads. This was the last drawing I did, inspired by him.

Nursery critters











painted onto little 4 month old babie's nursery wall with home made stencils, sponges and tester pots.... so much fun to do, and she seems to rather like them now :)

doodle el diablo


Here's one of a series of little devils that I doodled last year.

raining cats and dogs


Managed to squeeze a little doodling in on the train. I think the damp and dark morning dictated the mood.

Tales from the big top


More clowning around.
I've got a lot of ideas for the big top. I'm hoping to do one a week in my spare time, eventually compiling them them into a little book.

the ambush


I started a series of drawings based on dog observations. Like most of my personal projects it's been put on the back burner while I earn a living.

Wabbit Stew


This was a personal piece from earlier in the year.. I was trying to see how many variations of rabbits I could draw, for no real reason.

Trouble


This was another slice of randomness, just a little curiosity that sprang from some doodling :)

The Big Draw




If any of you are in the Bristol area on Tues 26 & Weds 27 of October, please join in with some doodling mayhem. I'm hoping to bring the museum's collection to life with a sprawling group draw!

It's a family event, so bring your nippers :)

More strips



A few more recent little stories.
The first relates to the birth of my little girl Bonnie Mae, some 3 months back. The dog is my old faithful companion of some 13 years, Rusty. I think it's fair to say that I was actually more scared of her than Rusty!

Anorak


One of my little doodles found its way into the latest issue of anorak mag, as a colouring in page. Thanks for the copy, anorak :)

Tales from the big top


Very occasionally I attempt a comic strip of sorts.

Influence map


I saw this first on my old uni pal and fellow illustrator WJC's brilliant blog

and felt compelled to discover my own influence map. A really enjoyable exercise, which seems to prove that my main inspiration still comes from my boyhood.

Doodlerama







Recently in between "proper jobs", I've been flexing my doodling muscles.
Here's a bunch of worked up sketch book doodles I quite liked. Some were drawn on the train!

Old Mother Hubbard











3 Spreads from recently finished early reader, published by Usborne.
Was a really fun book to illustrate :)
