…this makes think of the coming election…

any and every coming election.

The One That Didn’t Make The Grade

…it had everything…sharks, complex patterns, spirals, fatc**t…Scan 157

… a bit busy, for my tastes, so not destined to get the ink/brush/colouring-in pencil treatment…

… forever languishing in the sketchbook…

…or appearing here as filler between finished “product” posts.

Now that I can Draw Waves

…I can put sharks in them…

Scan 145

 

….cant I ?…

…and then I could do it in colour…

…yes, Tony, yes you could.

(…hmmm…this urge to talk to your self on your own blog for all the world to see, can that be fixed?)

101 Uses For Sharks That I Can Now Draw

…oh yes, drawing sharks is going to come in handy…

Scan 137

…as handy as being able to draw coelacanths…

Scan 138

…the practical applications are endless…

…especially considering my up coming series…

…”Henges that didn’t survive the millennia”.

…(oh yeah….200 posts…woohoo!)

Now That I Can Draw Sharks..

…what are the practical applications?…Scan 136…hmmm …maybe in a more “formal” setting

Scan 139

…hmmm…what about in space….

Scan 135…hmmm … this may require more thought…

…back to the drawing board.

Handy Guide

…as we in the Southern hemisphere pass from Summer to Autumn I present this handy guide to our Northern hemisphere cousins, who may be tempted to brave the briny fluid with the promise of  warmer weather to come in their neck of the woods…Scan 133

 

…or not, now that they’ve seen this.

Once I Had Sorted The Nose Out

…on the shark-for-band-poster thing… (see yesterdays post)

…I continued to obsessively draw all manner of finned/fanged beasties…Scan 129

 

…of course if you put the bottom line at the top it would kinda look like one of those fish species I.D. charts you see in fish shops….

…then you could colour-photocopy and laminate it….

…then you could go round to Fea St. at some ungodly hour in the morning (Hi Steve!) and staple it to the fence.

(can’t believe you guys haven’t noticed it yet…).

Another Poster Project Shelved

…so Steve said to me “wow, a poster with a shark like the one at Feastock would be kinda cool”….

…so I explained how painstakingly hands-on my stuff is…and how much a commercial artist would get an hour …and how long it would take me to do an A3 poster in black & white…

…he said he’d discuss it with his band mates…Scan 126…meanwhile the idea had started to form…

…just couldn’t quite recall how to draw sharks…

 

Scan 127

 

…(only when I’m tearing my hair out do I ever even think to look at Google images)…

 

Scan 128

..the “memo” at the bottom of the page is sung, with gusto, to the tune of “remember you’re a Womble”…

..a firm favourite round the house for a week or so.

(Highly recommend Googling for footage of Feastock…great party… tickets on sale soon…)

(not so recommended is googling “Remember you’re a Womble”).
