Draw Me Tutankhamun

Tutankhamun's Mask

I feel I’m cheating by only drawing things I fancy drawing, but I’ve got the January blues and want to draw escapist things: exotic locations and golden masks of ancient Pharaohs! Hence Tutankhamun’s mask today. I’m not sure it does the real thing justice, but I had fun trying! I’d love to see it in real life one day!

Update: A version of this drawing is now available as a spectacular gold on black t-shirt on tigerprints.co.uk – it looks amazing, check it out!

Je Suis Charlie

Je Suis Charlie

This just needed saying. Everything that can be said about the attacks in Paris has been said already over and over again, but I just wanted to add my voice to that. Je suis Charlie.

Draw Me Builder’s Tools

Builders Tools

Bit of a quick sketch today. I’ve been in a spring-cleaning and IKEA frenzy after taking all the xmas decorations down. So here’s my builder with his tools. That’s a huge spirit level sticking out of his back pocket, and yes I know it looks like he’s wearing eyeliner. Nothing wrong with that. You mean builders round your way don’t wear guyliner? 😉

Draw Me an Apple Tree

Apple Tree

OK, trees are more tricky than I thought so this picture took way longer than I planned! Everything else I drew ended up looking like a 5-year-old had drawn it with a felt-tip pen! Anyone got any tips on drawing trees..?

Draw Me a Wasp

Urghhh. I hate wasps! I tried to get all the spite and malevolence and evil of wasps into this sketch, but I’m not sure it worked! What do you think?
