Art Doodle Tutorial

 Here is my latest Vlog Video with some basics on doodling. Drawing without photo reference is a great way to dig deep into your imagination and creating new ideas or inspirations.
In the demo, I am drawing a small 'olde world' style house that is connected to the art-themed tags I organise on Twitter. This months theme is #buildapril
I hope you have fun and feel free to subscribe to my YouTube channel for more.

My art prints and originals at Folksy

Recently I have set up an online shop on Folksy to sell my artwork at prints and also some originals. I will be gradually uploading my work as I go along and also some new creations I have been currently working on. Feel free to browse through when you have the chance.

For the moment I am selling A4 art prints of my work but that will grow into other formats over time. At the moment there is a set of treehouse sketches I have put together and this will be the pattern of things to come as I like the idea of sets rather than just the one thing.

The Sword of Kirk Hallam

Earlier this year I was commissioned by Erewash museum and Kirk Hallam PCC to create illustrations of an Anglo Saxon holding the type of sword recently discovered in the grounds of All Saints Church in Ilkeston, UK. 

It is going to be the background to an exhibition celebrating the homecoming of the Sword of Kirk Hallam. 

This sword had been in conservation in London. A National Lottery Heritage Fund project is underway to bring it back to the church where it was dug from the ground twenty years before.

The event was cancelled due to COVID-19. But thankfully it will now be rescheduled for next year.

Below are other images of the sword outside the church and a logo I designed for the event.

Glastonbury Festival Illustrations

It is that time of year again! The Glastonbury Festival is days away! what a truly inspirational place it was too! I went there with my wife and friends back in 2015 for the first time! The place was overwhelming. As great as it is to see the festival on TV, is not a true reflection of the things that you don't see, it is almost like a medieval town with little taverns filled with music, food stores everywhere, and a place where people of all ages and cultures are there together thinking and communicating on the same songsheet. It is a place filled with inspiration.

Above a series of ink sketches, I have done for people who wanted Glastonbury themed weddings and parties because of their mutual love for the festival. Here is a link to the actual sketches I did when I was there in 2015 Glastonbury Sketches 2015. Hopefully one day my wife and I can go back there!

Twitter Art Themed Hashtag

Twitter art themed hashtags

Back in 2012, someone pointed me in the direction of the Twitter hashtag #drawingaugust. The idea was to draw something every day or as and when you could throughout the month of August. It was such a motivational moment, because not only were you drawing, but also there was opportunity to see other peoples work, to share and give each other feedback. As long as you put the #drawingaugust hashtag in the post then other like-minded people would be able to view it.

When August drew to a close I decided to extend the idea and motivation of the hashtag to September and change the theme to #paintseptember. The whole idea of it became addictive, and all of a sudden a large body of work was appearing. So as each month went by I changed the theme to accommodate the different areas that everyone could have a go at. I also created the hashtag #thedailysketch so that it could be used for a sketch or drawing throughout the whole year.

The picture attached to this blog post is a visual guide to all the hashtags I have created including the #drawingaugust tag which started it all, created by fellow artists Dean Lewis @olderThanevil and Jean Stevens @CasperandMrP

Feel free to use them as and when you can, either on Twitter or Instagram.
More than anything be inspired & enjoy. Art is for everyone! :}>
