Gee Rog

Last Monday 15th November, 2010 was the end of the Georgian era. Here are two of the last sketches I did of the old bugger.

A quick sketch of George done in crayon. He was NOT a good model – he kept moving his head. Picture was pretty much life-sized, on builder’s heavy brown paper.

And one of my infamous Preying Mantis George masterpieces. Part dog. Part preying mantis. All devil dog. “I’m a baad dog.”

Rest in peace, little buddy.

Birds

Two birds done with the Stabilo CarbOthello pencil crayons. The left chough is after John Busby. The big black chough is from a photo.

Sketch practice

The chihuahua from that famous photo taken in New York some time ago, you know the one.

Some sketching practice. Timothy Leary (center), some dude (left), and a couple of morels. Hardtmuth 0.5mm 2B

Strangely enough, Leary looks blurry and out of focus. Appropriate, I suppose.
