Apart from sleeping, reading, listening to music, secretly judging people on the newspaper they’ve bought, counting cows, nibbling on Fruit Pastels, covertly checking out the city girls, fantasising about the city girls and wishing death upon dawdling arseholes, there really isn’t much else you can do on a train but sketch.

A couple of ‘blind’ drawings, done without looking at the paper. Always good to shake things up a bit.

 

I looked a little bit.

So, an update I guess.

Poppy Cat is waving at you. Yes, you.

Poppy Cat's eclectic colour palette is currently bemusing children on Nick Jr at 9.30am everyday, apparently.

 

Having rounded off work on Poppy Cat early March, I fled North East to That London to help finish work on Series 4 of Peppa Pig. It was a refreshing change of pace and a terrifically enjoyable, if tiring, three months. My thanks to all at The Elf Factory for putting up with my awkward silences.

I’m currently on hiatus having a little existential crisis, so what better time to start rummaging through my sketchbooks and piles of paper and posting some edited highlights on the blog. It’s about time, quite frankly.

 

 

 

Commuters of varying shapes, sizes and states of consciousness.

 

My guitar and my Stay Puft Marshmallow Man Piggy Bank.

 

Two quickies from last years git-showcase, The Apprentice.

 

I’m aiming to post at least one thing a week until Christmas, be it sketchbook work, personal projects or something inspirational. If I fall behind you have my express permission to come around and break my thumbs.

Hello. Welcome to my shiny new blog. Please wipe your feet before you come in.

Some sketches from a cafe Exeter, the quiz night in Canvey Island and a drawing for my mum’s birthday card, depicting me desperately trying to keep the house tidy for when she gets home from work.
