This is a picture of a wizard on a bike. I like bikes. I like wizards. Fell off my bike, broke my wrist- had to do something with the spare time.
A selection of assorted face sketches scanned from my current sketchbook. I tend to do an awful lot of these:
Most are from imagination but some are taken from my little sketchbook I always take with me whenever I have to travel by train- it’s a great opportunity to draw people “in the wild”. I find that if you don’t take the time to keep looking at new reference you just end up drawing the same thing over and over again- going through the motions- it’s therapeutic but it doesn’t help you learn! A lot of learning to draw from imagination seems to be fighting your own habits and assumptions.
Laying out all your drawings next to one another like this allows you to easily see what mistakes and habits you most often replicate. I seem to draw a lot of white males of indeterminate age looking uncomfortably to the right. Hmm.
Dear Olympic Comitee,
I watched your last show at London on my telivision and thought it was quite good. However I have some ideas that I think may help you get more people interested in your programme, after all, nobody likes sports these days do they? They’re all inside eatin jaffa cakes and playing mario warriors. That’s why all the kids are so fat isn’t it!
People say that kids these days play too many voilent video games and it isn’t good for thier intellectual and moral development and they shpuld be outside in the fresh air (unless you live in London or somewhere big, where there isn’t any!) playing sports and engaging in physcal activities and stuff like that. I dont mean to boast but Im a very clever and got several Bs at school in subjects that are not dance, drama or cooking. Therefore you should listen to my idea which is this:
More fat children will go outside and play sports and like your olympic advertising shows if you make them more like video games. That is to say- more violent.
Here is one such suggestion i have drawn for you on my computer it is called “Surf Jousting”. It could also be named Joust surfing or Water pole. The object of the sport is for two men riding the sea waves on surf boards to go towards each other very fast with big poles and smack each other right in the melon. The last one to drown wins. it will be more popular with sharks added.
Please let me know if you think this is a good plan and if I can have some money for suggesting it. i have got more suggestion to offer soon

Here’s a few more sketches from my sketchbook
Here’s two quick sketch paintings of faces I did yesterday. I really love painting faces I do!
This is Keith & and his girlfriend Sue. As you can see they’re very much in love.
It’s Ok, she’s not real. These two are fictional characters I came up with for the fun of painting them. After the last portrait I did to practice and entertain myself I wondered how I could keep things fresh and increase the challenge a bit? The answer: two heads are better than one!
The real fun of doing a multi-person portrait is that you don’t just seek to convey the details of the faces, but to convey the relationship between the subjects too. I’ve got a brilliant idea for what I’m going to do next…
Yeah, thats right 3 people. It’s the logical progression isn’t it?
