Hey guys how’s it going? I’ve been very busy recently working on a 101 things, including updating my design portfolio with brand new mock-ups, photographs and descriptions of every project.
I felt like I rested on my laurels a bit with these projects, and it was time to take action!
It’s taken a ton of time I must admit, but I feel it was definitely worth the time and effort, even though it is a constant job!
Away from updating these projects with new imagery and information, I’ve also been working on a few illustrations too, including a new Walking Dead portrait of Michonne! This is in addition to Rick and Glenn’s portrait, with the aim to produce a portrait of every character from the show (much like my Breaking Bad portrait series – which was a really fun project!)
Within this blog post you will discover some of my recent drawings over the last month that I have been producing. They all feature portrait sketchbook drawings, from Bob Marley, Mark Zuckerberg to Amber Rudd.
I love working in my sketchbook as it’s the one place where I can sit down and draw – sounds simple enough, but it doesn’t always happen when life and commissions get in the way.
If you visit my studio you will most probably see myself drawing, painting or on my laptop, as drawing is something that I’ve practiced every day (or at least tried to!). It’s a big passion in my life, as I always want to improve my craft.
Drawing portraits is a theme that I love; capturing someone’s face within one image. It’s an incredibly hard subject to get right most of the time, and I definitely draw the odd portrait which looks nothing like the person.
It’s this challenge and battle to get ones face correct that makes it so exciting, and what keeps drawing me back (no pun intended!).
Portrait sketchbook drawings will always be something that I’m interested in, but I am actively trying to broaden my drawing themes as much as possible.
As you can see from my previous sketchbook blog post, portraits heavily feature. However, I’ve focused more and more of my drawing practice on figurative work – something that I want to strengthen.
I also use my sketchbook to think about new ideas, illustration compositions, and a way to think about unique ideas. This is my first point of call for any new project.
If you would like to discover more about myself and my illustration work, do head over to my website portfolio, where I showcase my new illustrations, design work and also sketchbook drawings too – much like today.
