A drawing requested by a friend of mine. She was planning to print the image on T-shirts for Christmas to give to people she’s befriended in Vietnam – each characters represent one of them. I’ve never met them and discovered that it was easier for me to draw the llama (depicting her) than it was drawing the other two – probably because I had a better feel as to her personality.
I’m not sure if it’s designing the tattoo, which has a strong South African reference, or the fact that I’m hoping time flies (yeah) between now and January, when I visit Cape Town, that has me wanting to draw ostriches. It’s been on my mind all weekend. Sadly I was busy procrastinating, so I didn’t get around to drawing one. Today however, I manage to get to it.
I then also drew a flamingo, and then another that I coloured.
I made this quick sketch of Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s on my mom’s birthday – she loves Audrey.
Another 1920’s inspired drawing.
We all have one of those days from time to time…
You’ve got to jump off cliffs all the time and build your wings on the way down. – Ray Bradbury
While watching the third season of House of Cards, I was overcome by the urge to draw. This doesn’t happen very often, as the last sketch in my sketchbook was done five months ago. I first started doodling and then ended up practising foreshortened poses. This is one of the drawings I made.
I then started watching the firsts season of The Affair. Whitney kept conjuring up images of Lolita – maybe they were somehow paying homage to the cheeky seductress – so I drew this image.
