Thought I'd upload some sketches from my trip to California. I went with my good friends Kris Pearn and Matt Jones. We spent a whole week in a car together and didn't kill each other. But a pidgeon did die. They're both amazing artists and I found it a very inspiring trip- I have finally been bitten by the sketchcrawl bug and just want to draw all the time now. It is also my very first Moleskine, thanks to Donnie Long, and I can see what all the fuss is about and where my next paycheck will go. In reverse order they are!---

Tanners Coffee Shop, Playa Del Rey. Lovely beach side part of LA.

San Francisco. I don't think I spent enough time here to learn how to love this city. Every place has it's own rhythmn. We found a great bar in Haight, by far my favourite area in SF.

Jakes bar in Portland. I'm considering drawing and painting this one up. I LOVED Portland!


Salt Lake City showed us a good time for our one night stop over. Great rock pub which served excellent food and then into The Red Door martini bar where I got drunk in the name of trying everything. If I met any mormons, I couldn't tell the difference.

Hermosa Beach where our journey began in LA.

Getting on the blog train

So I'm finally going to use this thing properly from now on. Early resolution. To kick things off, I have a massive dump *ha* of things I've been working on in the last couple of months. Here are some beat boards and concepts from my own projects. First is a feature script, working title The Engineers Cat.

And a short film of mine I'm writing, 'Dad's Coat'-

Now lots of life drawing done at the best life class I've ever been to, in lovely Bristol.

I've some sketchbook drawings I must scan in and post. Next time.
