This is some recent preliminary design work done with fine liner pen.
I am in the midst of storyboarding my latest animated short film. I am on my third watercolour moleskine book and only half way through the script. The finished product will all be doen in detailed black and white pencil.
Did this one a few years back sitting by the post office in Bourke St Mall in Melbourne. It was a quick pen sketch followed by some water colour from my Windsor & Newton, Cotman field box water colour set
On a recent trip to Paris I went down to the Catacombs, a place I always wanted to visit. It was too dark and awkward to do any decent sketching down there so I took some handy snaps on my digital camera and did a quick watercolour at a cafe when I got back above ground.
On a recent trip to the Clermont-Ferrand Short Film Festival I took some time out to do some sketching, when I was not catching all the short films. This is a watercolour I did from a cafe. I had a smallish brush so it was tough to get a nice was for the sky.
A pen and pencil (for the background) sketch of Paris while there on a recent trip. I drew this from a cafe on the Avenue d’Opera on the 23rd of January 2010.
In the aftermath of the Thierry Henry hand ball fiasco there was an interesting list printed in the newspaper regarding famous cheats of history – I decided to cut it up with a couple of the accompanying photos and paste it into my Moleskin. I added a quick pen drawing of Henry and some French shading in coloured pencil with appropriate title.
This is a pencil drawing of my new dog Clancy. I put a dash of Gouche to highlight his eye and a bit of purple in the ackgroudn for effect.
