I'm still working on my trawler men wives at the minute, so in the meantime I thought I'd put up some of my sketchbook work. 

Most of this sketchbook is just for me to have some fun and draw some weird stuff! I like using my imagination to create bizarre characters, they are my strange illustration alien babies.

I think one of the most important things to do with your mind is to practice using your imagination. Too often as grown ups we allow our imagination to just slip away.

Hull Fishermen

So today I have finally finished my fishermen! I've wanted to do an illustration to do with Hull's history for a bit now, so I did a bit of research by going to the maritime museum and looking at some pretty cool black and white images of Trawlermen.
I am going to be doing some fishwives/lasses next to accompany my trawlermen, so keep an eye out!
I've done a little process image too but because I am often too eager to ink I forgot to scan my pencil version! I will be better organised next time.

The Vikings

Just finished this piece this week. I've been going on about drawing some Vikings for ages, and I've finally done it!
I think having worked in primary schools for the past year and seeing 'Horrible History' books I've got a renewed love for figures from history.

Feeling slightly daunted this week after coming back from my holidays at the weekend! Summer has now ended, schools are back, weathers getting colder and supermarkets will no doubt start putting out Christmas decorations soon!
On a more positive note though I spent two weeks chilling on the Isle of Wight which gave me time to decide what to do with myself for the next year!

If you want a classic British summer hol then the Isle of Wight is definitely the place to go. There's dinosaur hunting, shell hunting, long walks, lots of beach fun (even when it rains). And if you get down for August bank holiday all the old and new Mods are down with their Vespas and Lambrettas for the scooter rally!
