This past week I found out that an old high school friend has died in a car accident. It's difficult to accept how someone so young, who's only just begun living their life, can be stripped of all their future hopes and aspirations. When tragedy strikes so close to home it's inevitable to be reminded of how fragile and unfair life can be.

Hug your special someone extra tight tonight.

I drew this in frustration over a job situation a while back. The two people in it shall remain unnamed. ;) They know who they are.

November Sketchbook

We've been doing a fill-a-sketchbook-in-30-days challenge at work this month. It's not a huge sketchbook, just a 24-page one from Muji so it's not as difficult as it sounds. For me the idea was to just get drawing. No pressure, just draw. Anything. Most of these were done on my commute so it's mostly people drawing, which I enjoy a lot.

Here are some of my favourites.

Colour challenge

I feel so out of practice with colour so my amazing colleague Celine, who's a real wiz at colours, recommended this challenge. Thanks Celine!

Life drawings

I found a  life drawing class not far from work so I'm trying to go every week. Really enjoying doing it regularly again.

Ross Noble tour poster 2012

I've been really fortunate to get to do another tour poster for Ross Noble's 2012 comedy tour - Mindblender. The 2010 poster I did was pretty cartoony and colourful but Ross had a very different idea about the direction this time around. It was really cool to do something a tad more realistic than usual for the rendering. I wanted it to be a caricature of Ross without pushing the exaggeration too far and risk loosing appeal in the process.
The metallic surfaces were a headache to render but luckily I got some help from John Aggs there.

This is the sketch Ross sent me of what he had in mind. He drew one of these for me the last time as well, and I really dig them! Even though it's a very simple drawing it put me in the right ballpark.

I started with a few thumbnails to explore variations of the composition and pose, and I did a colour rough to plan out the general colour scheme.

You can find the tour dates for Ross' show on his website - http://www.rossnoble.co.uk/

Old couple

The grandfather design actually looks quite a bit like my grandfather who passed away a few years ago.

Niska the Hubot

Niska from the Swedish TV drama, Real Humans (Äkta Människor). A very cool show about robot-human interaction and relationship dynamics.
