Scratched up Scott

I am lucky enough to live in a city is hosting a comprehensive exhibition on Scott of the Antarctic at the Australian National Maritime Museum (which I find has some of the most interesting design and art-related exhibitions than most art galleries). It’s travelling globally and its first stop is Sydney. I went in a few weekends ago for what would  be my third and probably last visit before it leaves in another week’s time.

This time I decided to go back to using one of my old faithfuls – the artline felt tip pen. And just to get that weathered, rustic feel, I approached the drawings using a continuous line technique. But instead of being slow and careful, I attempted it with a very frenetic, scribbly style.

And for more of my work from this exhibition visit my flickr site.

  4. Nice sketches! I really like the pair of boots…reminds me of my own pair which I wear to work 12 hours everytime…they just look hardworking and tired

    • ha, ha. I think you made a comment on my other boots drawing, alex. They must be like a second skin for you. Maybe you should send me a photo of your boots and I will sketch them for you!
