Ink drawings at 30x30cm. Shapes from the front of the house, the side, and at the back. The last of the Belarusian ink. I loved that ink.
This is an old one I rediscovered—a montage (non-digital) of cut-up bits of watercolour paintings—made when I was still living in Jakarta.
It was part of a set of illustrations for a World Wildlife Fund book, but was never actually used in the end.
Sweet illustration job for Road & Track magazine—with big thanks to Cassidy Zobl.
This issue is themed ‘handmade’, and the idea was to create illustrations which depicted the two cars as if captured in a sketchbook. Everything was indeed handmade but some extra splashes and marks, and that fold down the middle of the page in the first one, were added digitally.
Albert Finney as Arthur Seaton in ‘Saturday Night Sunday Morning’. The bit where he’s trying to make conversation with his dad, but his dad just isn’t listening.
More of the sketchbook combinations. This one crashed before I could save it so all I have is this lo-res version.
Someone on the telly but I didn’t catch her name. I want to say ‘Margaret’ but I’m edging towards ‘Edith’.
Another sketchbook piece based on a photo I take off the TV during breakfast. This time it’s Ben Wallace, minister of defence in the UK.
This is the view from my sofa, lovingly rendered in ink and pencil at about 50 x 70 cm.
My floor isn’t normally this untidy, I should make this clear. I was thinking more about the composition. The man on the screen is someone else I photographed talking about war one morning.
Lately I’ve been photographing people on the TV—mostly in the morning with my coffee—and then later drawing them in my book. This guy was fleeing the war in Ukraine.
