So here it is, my attempts at a comic for the Mathletics Team. Really enjoyed alot about doing this, opened my eyes to a bunch of things I really should learn about. I could have spent forever on this but yeah, maybe next time. The Saga of Ethel: Part 2

I'd like to spend more time just drawing for fun and splurging out the stuff in your head without feeling guilty for wasting time, even though I still manage to waste my time on far less productive things. Need to crack out the sketchbook more often anyway!

Been too long since I last posted something so here's a wee look into what Ive been up to.
Firstly, been working on a comic for awesome 'Metalish' band The Mathletics Team
They are releasing 6 issues portrayed by 6 different artists which documents the adventures of these unconventional heroes.
I'm working on Issue number 2 which is due the end of April so I'm plugging away on that. These guys provide so much inspiration from the costumes, variation, energy and the overall vibe each character emanates, so it's something I'm really enjoying working on. If you look through their tumblr, there's so much back story and richness to the world they exist in, so much so that the characters feel very real and believable to me.
So, I started doing some sketches from their gig photos and working out how I was going to draw them. The sequence I'm illustrating is very action packed so I was always going to go with something cartoony and fun.

So at the moment, I have roughs/plans of all the panels and I'm just working on filling them now.
In other news, I was in London again, drawing elephants and people in the rain.
I also want to do something with the awesome photos I keep stumbling upon of my favourite musicians and dogs. Something has to be done about it!

This is just one.. I want to save the best ones for the official post, they're too good.
And if you survived this ridiculously long post, congratulations.

Took a wee trip down to London last week for a change of scene. Planned on doing a lot more drawing but there was too much I wanted to see. Here are some faces.
^ Tried out Wolff's Carbon pencils, they're my new favourite :3
The highlight had to be the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Exhibition at the National History Museum. I can't stress enough how breathtaking some of the images were, packed full of extremely beautiful and occasionally some very depressing things.
Managed to find a couple of my favourites online
