Good afternoon all!
Here is a sneaky look at some of the work I've been doing at uni. Or rather, here is a sneaky look at a piece I've done that I'm not actually going to use for my project.
My project's actually going okay, but it took me doing this *points* to work out that I was in danger of gathering too many directions together and going crazy with them. And not in a good way.
I'm meant to be doing a humourous ABC book for adults where the image plays on the word to depict different types of people and as much as I love this image, it doesn't actually do that. It's not a massive leap to think anti-gravity = astronaut; so unless I think of a funny way to use him, this little fella's gonna have to float away.
Ah well. Plenty of... letters in the alphabet.
Any thoughts or ideas are much appreciated.

A page depicting my day in Cambridge with my family! Jamie's Italian for lunch, a nosy round the beautiful King's College chapel, and then off to Brown's for afternoon tea. Nice.

I'm trying to get myself to start posting on a more regular basis (particularly as I've been going drawing every week for a while now) so I'm going to attempt to match those weekly location sketches with a post of my other work. Fingers crossed!
On that note, I present my cousin, Olly, the newest, cutest little addition to our family. He's very cool; not everyone can pull off ducky chic, you know.
(I've also discovered drawing cute kids is a lot easier when you have particular parents in mind as you automatically think "Will they send me a birthday card if I suggest this is their child?" and then you can work out where you're going wrong from there.)

Another piece from the weekly drawing trips! This was done on Friday at the British Museum, where there were lots and lots of people looking over both the shoulders of myself and my friend Shannon (you can see her work here: singraham.com ).
This is actually an statue of Venus been caught bathing; I loved the hands so I wanted to capture their expression. I'm not sure about nudity warnings and what-not on here but I'll tag it as such and hope for the best. It's technically just stone, but meh.

The extraordinarily cool string quintet that was playing at Covent Garden on Friday. Every now and again they'd rush towards the audience in time to the music. Which was incredible.
