iPad drawing I’m not a big fan of shoe shopping. It’s a yearly event brought on by the failure of my shoes to keep my feet dry. I couldn’t leave my flat that day due to the rain, so I had time to draw them. Only the day after, when […]
Video (59 seconds) recording my progress over four years. Ink drawing In 2008, without any idea of how long it would take me, I started a drawing of a Victorian block containing flats and shops just off the busy Uxbridge Road in Acton, London. It was just a short walk from […]
iPad drawing This drawing is a display of the knitwear generously made for me by my mum. She is convinced I don’t have enough. This was one of the first drawings I made after the app I use (Brushes) went through a major upgrade. It took a while to get […]
iPad drawing It was a dark and cloudy day on the weekend that forced me to stay in my flat. What else could I do but draw the view from my window? This is the first time I didn’t use any lines when drawing digitally. Days like that give me […]
iPhone drawing I use the Tube a lot, so it provides me with many opportunities and time to draw my fellow commuters. Sometimes they’re happy, other times they are less so. Overall, I think Transport for London does a good job. This drawing was done whilst traveling on the Northern […]
iPhone drawing All the Primark stores I’ve been to look the same. As well as the same stock and interiors, the queues are the same – long! This was drawn as I waited for my mother and sister, both of whom were, of course, in the queue.
At the Lambeth Country Show one can see sheep shearing, prize-winning vegetables, falconry and dog shows, as well as eat well and drink cider. It has a great atmosphere and one of the reasons Brixton is such a unique place. So how was this drawing created? If you’re familiar with […]
iPad drawing A video (41 seconds) showing the drawing I did on an iPad of part of my shared office at work. I sketched it after my shift had finished, then later at home I went over the sketch and added the finer details from a photograph.
iPad drawing This is a shop local to me. At night the sign and the way the light passes through wine bottles always attracts my attention. Watch the video (1.26mins) above to see how it was created, or just see the end result below.
iPhone drawing I was on my way to Heathrow Airport, Terminal 5, to start one of my rare holidays outside London or Birmingham, when for much of my journey on the Piccadilly line I sat opposite someone tucking into a McDonald’s breakfast. She wasn’t very tidy; she dropped bits of […]
iPhone drawing The lack of space (or garden) means I have resorted to growing plants on a windowsill at my workplace. This single red chilli pepper was the first to ripen. There was not a feast and it was a small reward for a lot of effort!
iPad drawing This is a drawing of the view from my office. It was a sunny day and this gave me a chance to practice using light and shadow. Bridford Mews near Portland Place is a quiet street in Fitzrovia overlooked by a mix of high-status offices and residential flats […]
iPhone drawing The largeness of my fingers and the small size of the screen of my iPhone in comparison became apparent when creating this drawing in a recently rennovated Leicester Square. I sat on a hard surface for about an hour – always look for somewhere comfortable! This was one […]
iPad drawing This is the second drawing I have done of this beautiful Pyrenean mountain dog, doing pretty much the same thing as he was doing in the drawing I created exactly one year previous – lying on the floor of a pub in Marylebone, London. I was pleased with […]
iPad drawing Another of my early drawings on the iPad, this one was timed; it was drawn in 15 minutes (4.03 – 4.18pm). I still wasn’t used to using different layers, zooming in to create the finer details and unfamiliar with what the different brush options did.
The completed model I was commissioned to build an architectural model (scale 1:100) of the set of the long-running British television soap opera ‘Brookside’ based in Liverpool. The model of Brookside Close was for the Royal Institute of British Architects’ travelling exhibition ‘A Place to call Home: Where we live and […]
iPad drawing This dog is enormous – the size of a man – and beautiful. As one can guess, lying on the floor of this old-fashioned pub, Rufus gets a lot of attention and is easily the star in any place he is in. Rufus has received attention from both […]
