I want my scalps....

Here is my take on Brad Pitt as Luietenant Aldo Raine, from Inglorious Basterds. A great film, with some great lines. I hope I did it justice. It's a big Canvas, another 4 footer. Let me know what you think ! Click on the image for a closer look.

Warm Up's/demos


I have been down at the JBR Market over the last few days, it's going well, but sitting out in 45 degree heat trying to draw is a bit of a challenge ! IT IS HOTTT !

To drum up business I do demo's, usually based on someone I had seen walking around earlier, that I thought would make a good caricature. Here are a few of my demo's, and a caricature of a good friend of mine, and talented artist Simon Street. Check out his website in my links list if you get a chance....

Dubai Sketch - 4


Last night was the 4th Sketch night in Dubai. It was held at the Jam Jar studio as usual, and was great fun. It's basically a night of live art making, with the opportunity to sell the sketches created.

Here are 3 sketches that I completed - Jimi Hendrix, Elvis and Jack Black. Sorry for the crappy quality of the photo's.... still to invest in a scanner !
