On the buses Part 3

A bit of nearly asleep bus doodling. As you maybe able to tell I was playing round with the idea of working on some typography. I can pretty much explain why everything is there except the ice cream ( I do like ice creams though - is that a good enough reason?)

On the buses Part1

Went on a trip to Eastbourne recently, and spent a fair amount of time either on National Express buses or waiting for them. I did quite a few scribbles along the way, and as a cunning way of looking like I do a sketch a day, I thought I'd spread them out over a few days. Let me know if you get bored!

At Victoria.

More zooey gubbins

Probably shouldn't be putting these out just yet but I'm quite pleased with them...

Book news......

It's been a while since I did them now, but I can finally go on about them as they have both come out this month.
The first one is called Turbo Tortoise (by Steve Cole, for Picture Corgi), and it kind of does what it says on the tin! It's good fun, although the slugs I've talked to didn't like it much...
The next one is called Knights And Castles (By Rachel Firth for Usborne Children's Books First Reading series). The slugs had no problem with this one!

Day out in Bristol

Went to town today, ostensibly to sketch Bristol landmarks for a "Weyhey - it's Bristol!" type commission. Quickly decided that that is what cameras are for and started drawing people instead.

It was a good day for buskers - this guy was playing some really lovely blues/slide guitar. He also had really cool boots - maybe that's why noone was giving him any money (well if he can afford nice boots..). Tight buggers. Later in the day there was a guy getting amazing sounds out of what looked to be an upturned wok - but I was too knackered to draw by this point, and he looked a bit serious.

The next one is straight out of Howards Way - sat outside a pub by the marina drawing marina types. Nearly rumbled several times by kids coming up and shouting 'Look he's drawing those people!' PS answers on a postcard as to what it is in the foreground...

Grumpy alt rock lump.

Here's a bit of a scribble done at work t'other day whilst thinking of something else entirely - smiling cars in fact (told you). Not sure quite where it came from, but Arcade Fire seem to be on the radio a hell of a lot at the moment.
