David Lynch (again!)



I seem to draw David Lynch every couple of months. It was Mr Lynch's birthday yesterday so it felt like a good opportunity to have another go. This is the closest I've got so far. It was originally a sketchbook page but I've scanned it in today and added a watercolour wash (a real watercolour wash pieced together in Photoshop).

Californian House painting


Another recent painting. This time it's a case study-style/California Modern house loosely based on the Eames House. I've included the original sketch along with some process shots. I tried to keep the pencil drawing as faint and as simple as possible so I could make most of the decisions while painting. Sometimes this works other times it doesn't!

It's available as a print HERE.

Moss, Rocks, Trees, Snow


Another watercolour painting. I wanted to leave a lot of the white of the page visible on this one so what's better to paint than snow?

Stag Painting


Here's a stag watercolour painting I did earlier this week along with some process shots and the original sketchbook page that inspired it. I wanted to draw an animal and I enjoy drawing trees so a stag seemed like the obvious choice as it appears to be a bit of both.

Mug Shots


Some recent drawings based on old 1920s mugshots (from the archives of the Sydney Police Dept). I wanted to draw faces without being bogged down with likenesses and all these people had proper faces!

Derek Danger


Here's my version of Robert Ball & Warwick Johnson-Cadwell's Derek Danger (of Dangeritis fame). Produced for Robert and Warwick's Dangeritis exhibition at Travelling Man in Leeds to celebrate the release of the new edition of Dangeritis. I love Dangeritis. Long may it continue.

Still haven't seen a Derek cosplay though. Come on, people! This needs to happen (even it's just Robert or Warwick. Or both).

Below are the original artwork and the first Derek sketch from my sketchbook.
