Sketchy 130

….holy crap…I celebrate 10 years of blogging over the next couple of days….

…’spose I should actually be blogging so I can enjoy the virtual cake and drinkies I’m sure to receive….

…another faux cigar box label to add to your collection….

…your welcome….

Sketchy 122

…(casually wanders in from stage left and sticks something on wordpress like there’s been no gap in his content)….

…(will probably make some lame excuse like “I’ve been busy with the transition from finishing one large piece to starting another…and I quit my job”…or similar)….

….sorry for the gap in transmission team….

….I’ve been busy with the transition from finishing one large piece to starting another…

….and I quit my job….

…(can’t say I didn’t warn you)….

Paintbook 59/60

…kinda in that uneasy space between finishing something large and trying to start the next one…

…have a screed of notes and colour guides developing around my drawing table in preparation…

…was going to post some more sketchbook only to discover that I’d re-scanned the last page posted thinking it was the one I wanted to put up now…

…had to finish the above (abandoned since January) to get back into paintbook without guilt….

…now I want to do a “good” version to hang!….

…(ah…there’s that next rabbit hole…)….

Paintbook 47

…still exploring the colour combo’s and tweaking the composition….

….piece finished 20 minutes before I quit my day job…

…(so much happier to be back on nights!)….

Paintbook 45

…and after an eight month gap from the last piece…

….fascinated by the way the light green outline makes the tentacles look a different colour the body….

…(the eight month gap was caused by a big piece I haven’t quite finished yet…working on it…sidetracked!)….
