Catching up

Catching up

I have been completely undisciplined with posting blogs this last couple of years. Sometimes I think I have posted only to find out nothing’s there. I have been drawing a decent amount (somethings I’m not particularly ready to share with the online public yet) but I have been out sketching with my friends since January! […]

All that’s left of Macdonaldtown

Macdonaldtown is an inner west location, that has ceased to exist as a suburb, the only thing that remains of its name is that of the train station. The train station has an overhead bridge with a bit of graffiti on it. As its not a major stop and somewhat neglected it does have that […]

It also means there a constant and intense schedule of lion dance performances for us that can range from morning till midnight and take us to all regions of Sydney […]

Animals! Animals! Animals!

Animals! Animals! Animals!

Back in January I went down to Melbourne for a short break to catch up with some friends, and in particular sketching friends. I chose  Melbourne Zoo as a location for a day out having not been there since I was probably 16. Its very different from what I remember, a lot more trees and […]
