I Do This Quite A Lot

TV-watching doodle.
Is that custard? Let's say that it's custard.

OK, that was coloured in Photoshop.
This one is coloured the old-fashioned way,
with coloured pencils.

Purple-Ink Weirdo

I drew this guy in purple ink many years ago, and coloured him up in Photoshop today because I had nothing better to do.

Gloomy Boy

Image area approximately 660 x 250 mm. Aquarelle crayon.
This is a sketch I did at 'tech back in 2006. It was just a quickie on a torn open and flattened brown paper bag, done to fill in half an hour or so when I had nothing else to do, and mainly to try out some aquarelle crayons I'd laid my hands on.

For some reason Annette really likes it, so we've mounted it in an old oak frame she got from a junk shop — it's nowhere near being square, but that doesn't really seem to matter very much.

Digital Collage

There's a little bit of painting in this image, but for the most part it's digital collage, overlaying elements from various photographic images to end up with this.

This particular scaly demon looks like he's just seen his phone bill or something.

Constrained... restricted.... confined....

Because my workshop is one metre too small, I am going to have to move my drill press outside. And that's not a job I can do single-handed, so I shall have to enlist the aid of someone moderately burly to help me get it out and then get it back in again when the job is done.

One. Fucking. Metre.
