iPhone drawing Getting on board Brixton, I usually get a seat, even during the morning rush hour. This time I had to stand, but it meant I could see what people were reading or what they were doing on their iPads. A lady was making a to-do-list for a trip […]
iPhone drawing I was on my way home, boarded a packed bus and I thought I was lucky when I spotted an empty seat. The guy sitting next to that seat was a powerful reason why no one wanted to sit there. The smell of fried food and ketchup was rather […]
iPad drawing It’s cold. Single glazing is not good, but that’s what I’ve got. I went to Argo to get a small electric heater which has been an absolute saviour, whilst there I spotted red trousers, proving it wasn’t just a hipster / East London thing.
iPhone drawing I was attending a book launch at the Flowers East gallery in Hoxton, London, when I spotted a lot of hipsters in tight red trousers. The wine and canapés were flowing freely, the art was nice too. It was the first of several days where I saw (and drew) […]
iPhone drawing Birmingham News Street station is undergoing a massive rebuilding programme. I was standing in the part of the station that still retained a fragment of its 19th-century predecessor. In amongst the ever decreasing amount of stained concrete from the 1960s, at the end of platforms 2 and 1 are brick arches […]
iPhone drawing On a packed train to work I am forced to stand for much of the journey, but it gave me the perfect vantage point to draw the rows of seated commuters on a train heading northwards from south London. I had enough time on the journey to sketch […]
iPhone drawing The death of Margaret Thatcher was the lead news item on all the front page of every newspaper in Britain today. Her image was staring out at me from the newstand of my local branch of Sainsbury’s. I don’t think I’m particularly good at drawing portraits!
iPhone drawing With my move from Brixton complete, I’m now trying to figure out which is the best way to work. Today was my first day to work from my new (rented) home and it went surprisingly well, it didn’t take much longer than from my former address. I know […]
iPad drawing At the last minute I have found a new place to live. With the impending move, I’ve had to go to Argos in Brixton, flick through their laminated catalogue (putting to the back of my mind the thought of the thousands of unwashed hands that have touched the […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
