155 – Raphael study

So I bring my watercolours with me on holiday, and every time, apparently this is what I am inspired to draw… Not the amazing mountains-meet-sea majestic landscapes of North Wales. No… Ninja turtles. Yes ladies and gentlemen I am a big old geek. But a […]

Carrying on from last week where I decided to only post on this blog the original hand-drawn artwork for my comic, before it gets corrected and coloured on the computer… Here is Mizzle 22 (part 3 of 6 of her origin story). This was a […]


143 & 144 – Anita (life drawing)
