Running around after toddlery chiddlers for the best part of a week is incredibly knackering, not entirely sure how parents manage it! So sadly I haven't had much time or energy for drawing; or to draw anything original anyhow. Maybe I'm just getting old. Have some sketchings from LIFE.

Kew Gardens has some incredible plants, trees and foliage doofiggery to draw, but I got distracted by the animal life in the Princess of Wales Conservatory. Huge moth there called the Atlas Moth. The one I sketched hadn't been out of it's crysalis long and was still drying off.

There was a water dragon mincing around one of the pools who kept leaping away and swimming to the other side of the pool once I started getting somewhere with a sketch. Good practise for trying to get a form down quickly I guess, but still frustrating. Cheeky blighter knew it too.

Well chaps, here's some sort of attempt at a blog. Let's hope I can keep it going for more than two seconds before I get distracted by something shiny.

Haven't got much in the way of artwork to lobb here at the moment. You would think that during the summer hols I'd have more time to draw non-uni related gubbins. Or any gubbins at all for that matter.

At any rate here are a couple of pictures I did for Egoraptor's Girlchan character contest... thing. Plus some concepty doodleage lark, because I can.

Ps. dude in the white is from the Girlchan series in case you're not familiar with it.
