Some drawings on this pretty paper my pal has pads of. The guy with a sword in his mouth is inspired by one of the stained glass images in the Sainte-Chapelle Church in Paris.

Two things I like to draw….

By in ballpoint pen, black and white, cats, sketches

Cats are self-explanatory. But I’ve always liked airplanes, and especially the DeHavilland Mosquito.

There’s a lot that I draw that I don’t put up. Trying to remedy that a bit. It’s not all brilliance, but here it is. Pencil, coloured pencil, Gouache. I think that’s covered it, technique-wise.

Cat Protection

By in cats, digital

A plausible cat outfit for the current weather. They seem not to need booties.
