Monday Notepad Image #004 | X-ray Teddy

The fourth image, is an overnight pen wrecker from Notebook #17.

X-Ray Teddy

I have worked on an x-ray style before now, once with a stick figure and once with an X(yes an X) but while starting off a sketch of a bear I got more involved in its structure the more I put the pen to the paper. 2 pens later and I'd made enough dark patches around the outside to see the bare bones of the piece (forgive the pun though)

Monday(on Tuesday) Notepad Image #003 - Awake

The third image, while a litte late is from Notebook #16.


This sketch is a focus on one of my more repeated topics of the eye itself. Something I practiced sketching on post-it notes, maths text books and anything else. I know the matchstick is quite short but pretend this is a matchtsick for ants....

Monday Notepad Image #002 - 5 Senses

And the second image in the monday Notepad Image is a reworking of an older design....

The 5 Senses

With this reworking I've sketched out each individually an will put them into a single frame (quintuptych?) I was quite happy with all 5 and I wanted all of the men to have there own personality.

Monday Notepad Image #001

So to start off a new series while the School of Faces gets underway, here is a sketch for the week from my notebook, specifically from book 16.

The Tattooed Elephant

After a recent trial working on different styles I've started working on a tattooed series including a tattooed eye, a tattooed building and a tattooed tank. The elephant I'm quite happy with. I may work on a larger version of this as well.
