All the pieces are slowly coming together for this project. I’m going to start cartooning again and draw a regular cartoon strip blog. Even if I find it is too much work at least it will be a fun project to try. 😄

Earl of Pembroke

This drawing was done using a graphics tablet a few years back. Again when I started I didn’t appreciate the amount of rigging that sailing ships have. Done from a photo I took whilst walking around the harbour festival.

Warehouse by Bristol Harbour

This was a drawing I did a few years back. It took far too long and I included far too much detail. This is an example of how my work has changed over the last few years, from very tight monochrome drawings to colourful and looser style.

It is a very big drawing…

Fujifilm X-E2 in brush pen

My Fujifilm X-E2

I realised that whilst I can draw really (adequately) well with a pen or a pencil, my brush technique needed a bit of working on. So I’ve been trying to practice drawing with brushes to improve this. So far it’s not having noticeable effects but I will keep on at it to see if I improve. However this brush pen drawing of my camera is promising, so maybe there is hope for me yet. My biggest takeaway from the whole exercise is to use as big a brush as you possibly can.
