The Return Of Sketchy

…or “Sketchy XVII” in the parlance that was being used late last year when last I dipped into the the bottomless sketchbook….

….a continuance of the “aztec” octopus thing from the sketch book just on a year ago….

…(….really, Tony?….really?…a whole f**cking year?…..)….

….(….mmmm…notes to self….did I “action” those?….)….

…(…er….probably not…)….

Sketchy Wednesday XIII

…or should that be New Improved Sketchy Wednesday On A Sunday Back To Being On A Wednesday Again…..?…

…the “Aztec” octopus idea is recycled from a previous sketch book….

….there is a 6 month lag in posting these pages so I can safely say that this idea goes places….

…lots of places…

Sketchy Wednesday X With 15 Minutes Of Tuesday On The Clock

…better early than late…

…please note the introduction of 8 colour Smiggle pen on second page…..

…colours a little muted but it gives me a spectrum to plan with….

Sketchy Wednesday IX

….whilst trying to apply a spine (or several) to a flutterdie ….

…(sort of aiming for a dragonfly/dragondie sort of a thing)….

…things may have got a little out of hand….

Sketchy Wednesday VI

….every once in awhile I think to myself “that page would benefit by being covered in eyeballs and flutterdies”….

…and as I work at night, by myself….

….there’s no one there to contradict me….

Sketchy Wednesday IV

…planning and plotting…

….plotting and planning….

…parts of the big secret project are still alive and kicking about the sketchbook…

…plus bonus side idea for a toneware piece…

…yay…sidetracked again!…

😜

Sketchy Wednesday II

….Flies!….

….Flies and Skullsncrossbones!….

…(lord knows what they make of this at work as I busily scrawl in the book and eat with my mouth open)….

…more “template B” madness….

…very satisfying to discover that the other motifs that you favour fit into the pattern that you’re playing with….

…mmm…four coloured pen….

Sketchy Wednesday

…first in a series to catch up on the “new” sketch book….

…which I haven’t posted from since…er…well…since I put up the painted frontispiece that you can see sticking out on the left hand side….

…big secret project has made me a bit hoardy with my art stuff….

…spending most of my break time at work drawing…sandwich or cup of tea in one hand….multi coloured pen in the other…

…and am managing to churn out a sketch book page every 4 or 5 days….

…..trying to relearn sharing….
