birds do it, bees do it, even educated fleas do it...

i paid a little visit to birmingham botanical gardens & glasshouses and proceeded to take lots of pictures of the peach-faced lovebirds!  so lots more birds to draw now.

bombs away!

ode to the o.e.d.

words are wonderful!

just some typographical work for my last project, which ended up not being typographical at all!  but that's how it goes.  a celebration of letter forms and lexicon.  with the words taken from the oxford english dictionary's newest, revised and updated entries.

we got some posca pens at university, and we got a brief.  happiness.  let drawing commence!

the umbrella of happiness (only half done here).  and i went with a nice repeat pattern, obviously weather related, drawing on and umbrella and all (and it was raining that particular day)... happiness!

the spring and summer panels, and the joyful elements of the seasons...

autumn and winter and it's sights.

jellybeans make people happy (and i just wanted to draw on some pumps, these nice cheap and cheerful ones.)

ahh wasn't this fun.

can you?

simon peplow came into our university, way back now, in march, and he talked and then we all drew together!  we had a whole list of things to draw, in way of a challenge i suppose, to get out of our comfort zones.

so here be my sketchings (and they are rough mate)...

i can draw a bird on a unicycle.

a yeti, a mythical sea creature, two different animals stuck together, hello in an interesting typeface and disorganisation.

a mythical beast in a tree, and myself as a bird, and we're waving at each other.


that was a fun day.
