Bird gesture with hairy arm.

I like drawing hairy arms, in fact i just like drawing hair...........................and birds.

Human Animals.

I did a drawing the other day. A half man face. Half bird face. It was entirely from my head, a little worrying. It has spurred me on to do a series of half human half animal faces and body parts, i love to manipulate the body with a simple tool like a black fine liner pen and a couple of felt tips. Bliss.
Here he is.......

Isnt he a beauty? Id say he had parrot features. Talking of animals and humans i came across an amazing picture today of animal hairstyles for women. I managed to find some more images here. Take a look, they are incredible, if i had to choose an animal to sit on my head i think it would be a...........warm cat.

Miss Mabel

I try to stay away from drawing portraits as whenever i try these days tey always end up looking a bit freaky and wonky and dont give the person any justice. I was asked my sister to draw a portrait of my neice Mabel for her birthday, and i think i succeeded in recreating a likeness to her, so im rather happy with it in that respect. Here is the little munchkin.

I made a book for my nephew Stanley on his 1st birthday. It was called his nearest and dearest and on each page was apicture of all our family, unfortunately none of the pictures looked anything like the family member, highly amusing for all to see and i informed everyone that i had to re-do my Dad because my first attempt made him look like a creepy paedo.......... woops!

Its boring if they look too like the subject i find now, its far more interesting to do your own representation and far more amusing when you get the eyes completely wrong and a bit wonky.
