i am Kate!

i am Kate!

Where I work there is a lovely and very beautiful girl called Kate.  She has embarked on a bit of a modelling carreer and I just love her look.  I did a painting of her awhile ago which she loved… and she asked me to do another.  Soooo here it is.  I think I’ll go put it on her desk this morning as a little surprise… she has no idea (yet) that I did this last night.  Hope she likes it, because I’m pretty wrapped at how it came out!

I forced myself to draw this in ink from the beginning, so I would have to make fairly accurate lines and not make any too big a mistake.  Seems to have worked out okay I think. Then as I kept working on it, for some reason… the idea of incorporating one of my favourite and iconic TV shows into it also slipped into my mind.  “Twin Peaks”.

The Sketchbook Project

The Sketchbook Project

I’m sketching slowly but surely into my little notebook that will next year be on an exciting journey around the world.

It’s called the Sketchbook project and many many Artists of a multitude of talent are also involved.  My little journal’s theme is “Fill me with stories”.  They liken the whole thing to a a kind of concert tour, but with sketchbooks.   The notebooks will travel from – Brooklyn, NY to Melbourne, Australia, even over to London, England!!

I have only done two little cute sketches into it, and Clara Lansdale is one of them.   I just had a look at a little promo video on it… it’s quite amazing at what people actually do with their individual journals.. all so very different and wonderful!  See below Clara to watch!
