A Helping Hand

I saw the loveliest old couple together today on my lunch break. They got off the bus together and, even though the man was relying on a walking stick himself, he still held hands and helped his elderly wife step down from the bus door. It made my heart melt a little.

Soak it Up

A little, late night cool down sketch before bed. Trying to strip things back a bit and develop a clean, simple technique for more quick character pieces from life.

Sonia the Birthday Belle

This is a birthday gift for one of my favourite people in the world, my friend Sonia. Her favourite film is Beauty and the Beast so I drew her in Belle's dress. She absolutely loved it :)

...Sonia was 26 yesterday by the way ;)

Life Sketch - Barbie Girl

This was based on a young girl by the pool yesterday who, while her mum was sunbathing, took great joy in throwing her naked Barbies into the pool and then flinging them around and spraying cold water on the nearby adults.

Life Sketches - Moped Lady

Over the weekend Dan and I drove from London, UK through the whole of France and down through the whole of Spain until we reached my new apartment on the Costa Del Sol. Over the last five days I have seen so many great characters out and about. I'm going to try and use these characters as nice bite sized warm ups to get settled back into the groove of things after moving house (and country!). Here's a very large Spanish woman who was in front of me today on a ti
ny moped, it really was a wonder she kept her balance.
