iPad drawing At my parents’ house there is a houseplant I grew from seed. From memory it germinated in 1993 and it had been growing slowly ever since then, but sadly it died after a member of the family ‘looked after’ it at the end of 2012. The dried remains […]
iPad drawing This weird view (looking out from across my pillow and blanket onto my bedroom) was drawn before my first day back at work after the long Christmas holidays. Sometimes the darkness and warmth of the bed in the morning is preferable to being outside in the ‘real’ world […]
iPad drawings This is the view from my old bedroom at my parents’ house. It’s a fairly typical view of suburbia. A small amount of light can make minor elements more prominent at night. The drawings uses several layers, each layer holds certain elements and can have their settings like […]
iPad drawing. I was the happy recipient of many gifts over Christmas, a time which I spent with my family in Birmingham. One of them was a bag of Haribo sweets – they didn’t last long once opened. This particular drawing took longer than average – I worked on it […]
iPhone drawing London is a big place and much of the transport is crowded. This was drawn during one part of a long journey (it took a Tube, a train and a bus) from my workplace in central London to Chingford to visit a friend – the return journey back […]
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 […]
