been working on more Finn MacNiall stuff for my VALIANT project. Here’s Finn, on the run…
And I wanted to try something out, using watercolours, looking for a style that also involves some linework. (apologies for the scan)
Happy 2015 everyone. Hope it’s gotten off to a fine start for you all. I’m still trying to find my feet in many ways although overall, it’s been a positive beginning. So no real complaints.
I haven’t posted regularly for a long time, in part due to
a) The kids have been off on school holidays.
b) I’ve been sucked into a facebook void as far as spending time on the internet is concerned. If you’d like to keep track of what I’m up to, there’s the best place to do it, although I thoroughly intend to get back to blogging on here, I miss it.
c) My workload. It quietened down for a few months prior to Christmas and then took off again. I’ll be pretty busy for the next 2-3 months and that’s what an illustrator wants. No complaints. Truly.
So here I am, with 2-3 sketches drawn over the past couple of days. I haven’t sketched for the sheer sake of sketching for quite a while and will be doing that too. 2014 was a tough year for me, personally, and it upset my mojo somewhat. Things are steadily improving so, with that in mind, hope you enjoy the sketches, plenty more to follow soon…
A couple of ‘just because’ doodles to keep my hands and eyes ‘in’. I find horses notoriously hard…
My new art book:
Today’s warmup sketch.
(my new ‘How To’ book)
It’s been a little while since I posted about my new book here. The Fantasy artroom has been winging it’s way around the globe for 3-4 months, and right now, I’m in the process of putting a youtube channel together, I’ve updated the website, I now have the Facebook page up and running. Can I ask, if you like what you see, or if you’ve bought a copy of the book, that you spread the word. I’m hoping the project grows into more publications, more How To’ videos and more workshops.

And if you needed to know anything that hasn’t been covered already, wanted to arrange workshops etc, please feel free to contact me.
