I Lied

….there is one more…Scan 20Scan 21

….the list of subjects to use for this “series” was huge…

…this out-take “reel” is the last of ’em….

…I think.

…(if you just got here…

…that’ll take you back to the beginning).

The Idea From The Last Post Edited And Reworked

…I appropriated some shapes from the internet…

…(google images… tapa cloth)Scan 165

 

…then added a more sensible quantity of  fact**ts…

 

Scan 166

 

… and …. Voila!

…may have to do it again later with the “turtle-shell” suit design…

…spirals were faster.

Your Guess Is As Good As Mine

…as to why the fat guys in suits are floating just off the beach of some pacific isle that obviously still reveres a pagan god…Scan 125

 

…maybe they’re on holiday…

…maybe we got so sick of them that we set them adrift like notes in bottles…

…sorry, sun bathed pacific isles, but they are yours now…

…to do with what you will.

Happy Easter

…but if you’re waiting for Jesus…

…he’s kinda tied up at the moment…

…watched, fascinated, as this guy walked backwards and forwards in rush hour commuter foot traffic…

…(how the hell I got him alone in the frame at that time of day is beyond me…the ped’ seas just parted, I guess)…

…me and my off-siders couldn’t figure out if he was wanting to talk about Jesus or if he was meeting him on a blind date or picking him up for a clandestine appointment or….

…or waiting for the second coming…but if he’d already met Jesus the first time , why would he need a sign?….

…Hammersmith, London, UK… even our saviour takes the tube.

Extrapolate! Extrapolate! Extrapolate!

…so I found myself with a design idea I could run with… who else, in their right mind, would trawl through their sketchbook to find images they could do at 3 different sizes on backgrounds inspired (ripped off?!) from retro wallpaper patterns?….

…. and who, you’re probably not asking, would go on to render it in brush, ink and coloured pencil….

…. these will all (oh yes, there are more) be tagged “Duck! Duck! Duck!” should you feel the need to look at them all at once or join in yourself…..

Familiar Stuff

… oh, that’s right, this has exactly the same  composition as the doodle I posted yesterday….

Scan 22

 

…they were facing pages in my sketchbook and I was going to post them together for comparison…. but it’s hot and I forgot….

…and that rhymes …

…. so I’m off to join a hip hop posse….

(makes incomprehensible hand gesture…)

(…and prayers for the sanity that can only be brought on by a reduction in atmospheric temperature….how the hell people function in hot counties is beyond my white working class ass!)

Keep Them Fingers Busy!

Today marks the end of my smoking cessation programme. The last of the patches went on this morning…. I’m now staring down the barrel of spending my much deserved three day weekend enjoying the pleasures of nicotine withdrawal…

Here’s a little something from the first few days of making the acquaintance of my good friend Patches…Sketchboo01_0006

… and I’m expecting a similar burst of activity over the next three days…

..Indoor/outdoor distractions for the crazed individual have been prepared, I’ve warned everyone to avoid me and even selected the blanket that I’ll be cowering under if it all gets to be too much (placed in a darkened room, of course).

… it’s been nice knowing you… I may be a completely different person when next we meet.

Here we go again

Wow…. yesterday I was going to catch up on all the stuff I was going to post pre-xmas…

Stuff that went by the board ‘cos my MacGuru came round to wish me seasonal well being (Hi Matt) and stayed for four hours re-building my blog from the ground up ‘cos I’ve been offending everyone on the intraweb with my  HUGE  image files, when he should have been out enjoying the sun shine….

Yesterday was off the hook….

Phone call from an ol’ buddy who I haven’t spoken to for twenty-odd years (Hi Chris)…

Drive-by and visit from another ol’ buddy & his wife, who I get to see once a year if they can find a gap in their busy Xmas visit to these fine shores (Hi John & Tania)….

…and everyone else in the world decided it was a good day to shop for records!

Busy!

So here’s a picture for you to look at whilst I try and figure out what all these notes that me and Matt scrawled actually mean (Hi Matt)…

Doomsday Cults Clean House

Yay….. the world didn’t end and the cults are already ditching their idols down at my local refuse recycling depot…

Ladies & Gentlemen…. Today was a good day to go down the “Tip-shop”…..

O.K…. i’ll admit that only three of the “offerings” were secured today (apple,pear,banana) but I feel justified in “accumulating” the rest, over time, for an such an occasion as this….
