For a while now, I’ve been eager to learn how to use digital media to create art. I’m still getting used to it, so everything takes me a really long time. It’s all part of the learning curve I guess. As long as the results are worth the effort, I’ll persevere.
Recently, a friend of mine (who I hadn’t seen in six or seven years!) came over from Australia. I loved having her here, and now that she’s gone, I’m desperate to get out there to visit her! I’ve always loved to travel and adventure around new places, experiencing new cultures and environments, so I guess I should have expected that. ;) Anyway, it was my love of travel that inspired this piece; a compass rose. :)
I’m back! To explain the larger-than-usual gap between recent posts; exams took up the first two weeks in June, then I took a week or so to settle down, and I then spent the last week of June in Holland, visiting Amsterdam, and the MotoGP Circuit, TT Assen.It was a pretty eventful few weeks, but I’m happy to be back drawing again. You can read more about the drawing above, here. :)
19 years ago today, Ayrton Senna lost his life while leading the San Marino Grand Prix. This drawing (which I drew last summer) is my tribute to one of the most inspirational racing drivers that ever lived.
If there’s any symbol for summer road trips, it’s the Volkswagon Type 2. Also known as the VW Bus, Camper, Kombi or Pick-up, the classic VW Type 2 is a panel van initially deriving from Volkswagon’s first model, the Type 1 (Beetle).
Original drawing in green and black ballpoint pens in my Moleskine sketchbook.
Ps: Check out my new Facebook page! :)
School is really killing me this year. I feel like I haven’t drawn anything in ages! Just another ten weeks or so…
The Submarine Spitfire is a British single-seat fighter aircraft that was used by the Royal Air Force and other Allied countries throughout the Second World War. It was produced in greater numbers than any other British aircraft.

Available as prints and other fun things in both black and white ink. :)
This is the first piece I’ve done in pencil (and some Photoshop) for a while now. I find old medical journals and posters fascinating, and I’ve been enjoying a little anatomy study of bones and muscles myself recently, so decided I may as well use these skulls to form part of a bigger piece, with a vintage feel to them. I’m pretty happy with how it all worked out.
Last day to vote!
I entered a marker drawing in Jorge Lorenzo’s Facebook competition, and I need all the help I can get! There are hundreds of entries, and only the top eight most voted get through to the final round! The top prize is tickets to see the final race of the MotoGP season in Spain next month, which would be incredible!
First click this link and ‘like’ Jorge’s page.
Then click this link and click ‘me gusta’
Bonus points if you can get brothers, sisters, mothers, cousins, friends etc to vote too! Thank you! :D
Voting ends today!
FW - 190
The other day I abandoned schoolwork for a while, and had some fun drawing the bones of this Focke-Wulf 190 from WWII. It was one of those drawings that cheered me up tenfold, because I thought I’d struggle a lot more with it. I figured there was no harm in trying it anyway, so I gave it a shot and was quite pleasantly surprised. ;) Couldn’t decide on the colour scheme though - which do you prefer?
Available in both colour variations as t-shirts, prints and other things HERE (the t-shirts/hoodies/tote bags are printed in either white or black ink just click through to see ‘em).
PS. It’s free shipping until Sunday!
