Urban Sketchers meet up

I finally found time to head out to an Urban Sketchers Australia meet up. I couldn't stay the entire day so I went in earlier to get a head start. After spending some time considering how to approach drawing architecture (see Brick by Brick post) I really wanted to implement what I learnt. It wasn't so... Continue Reading →

They are running an Incredible Hulk competition at the moment, and this is my first (of two) design that has been approved and ready for voting.

Toulouse-Lautrec to Turner

A sketching friend and I spent 10 days in Canberra and Adelaide seeing the touring Toulouse-Lautrec and J.W Turner exhibitions in each respective capital city. Apart from Canberra being the capital of Australian politics and international embassies, it has most of the national museums and galleries. I imagine it is like a mini version of...

Abu Dhabi Do!

In February I was given the exciting opportunity to travel to Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates to play with TaikOz. A huge honour, considering I'm not one of their more dedicated students. It was a unique advenutre and a bit of an insight into the life of a professional touring musician, and it... Continue Reading →

It all happened so fast

December flew by and I had a small collection of drawings I did over that time, plus some from the last few days.  Collectively they're all a little random but it ends another sketchbook at last. Only took me a whole year and eight days. My dad's long drawn out stay at RPA to have... Continue Reading →

1st Urban Sketchers Australia meet up

It was a much needed day out of sketching for me, and although Sydney was thrown into 40˚ heat leading up to our first Urban Sketchers Australia meet up, the gods were fairly decent towards us on the day. The gardens are a lovely refuge in the inner city and even though there was a... Continue Reading →

Breaking out

I was given the opportunity to sell some paintings. I wasn't sure what to charge as it puts a bit more pressure on you when it's commissioned work. But the brief was pretty open as long as it related to taiko music. So I came to an agreement if they let me experiment I won't... Continue Reading →

Sydney Open Day

The Historic Houses Trust of NSW ran a "long" weekend event called Sydney Open. With the co-operation of several private and public buildings in the city centre they opened their doors to the general public for a look round. It was a drawing opportunity I could not miss, so went along Friday night with the Sydney Sketch... Continue Reading →

Out at Rookwood

I dont know what it is about cemeteries that I enjoy drawing so much but Rookwood has always been on my checklist of places to draw, so when the Sydney Sketch Club headed out for its Open Day I thought it was a great opportunity. Rookwood Cemetery is the largest neocropolis in Sydney. It was... Continue Reading →
