This weekend saw the 38th Sketchcrawl and if you were in London this weekend, you'll know how bloomin' freezing it was!
To my surprise there was a huge number that turned out. Too big even to talk to everyone. But I think a congratulations are in order to everyone who pulled themselves out of bed on a Saturday morning to go sit in a cold museum and draw during a snow weekend!
We went to the Tate Modern and worked our way up and down the floors finding various warm spots to sit in but the best drawing was probably in the Turbine Hall.
Fun day, but I was glad to get home, drink hot tea and play video games!

Hello Blogger World! I have missed you! No, really I have. I feel like since the wind down of CTNX I've fallen off the radar and lost touch with all of you! So please keep in touch all old and new friends!
Apologies for the lack of artwork on here recently. After CTNX finished I had a lot of Christmas things to sort out.
I have a new job as a Freelance Illustrator at Mind Candy, here in London.
If you're not familiar with their work...you will be. Now that I've mentioned it, you will slowly see it everywhere you turn! They are responsible for the Moshi Monsters movement going on amongst children all over the world aged 6-11. I will be developing the characters' poses so that they are more dynamic and expressive.
It's a very cool place to work and I can't wait to show you some of the work.
But do check out these wonderful illustrators who also work there:
One of the great perks of my new job is that they have life drawing on site. So I have no excuse not to go. These sketches were from the first session I attended just before Christmas.
Always hate the first class back, when you realise what skills you've let slip.
More apologies for the poor quality of the photographs too...
This weekend sees another official Sketchcrawl . I forget which one it's on...the 36th or something. I'll be sure to post some of my sketches from that, so I promise there will be another post within a week!
Anyone in London or nearby, please feel free to come join us on the sketchcrawl. Here's a link to the event page:
And finally finally....
I got a cat :)
