Here’s an old working drawing from the early stages of my City sculpture. You can see the vine structure that made it into finished sculpture as well as some orifice sketches that didn’t. Although they did lead to a smaller component piece called Arch.

As I've neglected my nightly doodle updates lately (the last few weeks have a bit crazy) - here's two for price of one. They’re from my series of late night quick-fire drawings, where I just try and scribble down as many doodles or silly sketches as I can before I go to sleep.

I’ve just started a new series of relatively small sculptures and this was the preliminary sketch for Orifice Box, the first piece in the planned cluster of wheeled, boxes sculptures. I plan to make another box, similar to Nail Box, that will sit (on stilts) inside of Orifice Box. I’ve just today completed a second, and smaller, piece for the group. Its working title so far is Horned God Orifice Box.

In this sketch of an idea for another one of my small box sculptures I've toyed with the idea of replacing the usual wheels base with a rickety stick structure. This would also help to raise the piece to head height where the box and its contents could be better viewed.

I’ve just uploaded 24 new doodles, drawings, cartoons and scribbles. Doodling seems to have become part of my bed-time ritual lately. Most nights, just before I head off to sleep I try and force myself to jot down a few drawings. Sometimes I really get into it and am pleased with the rests, while other times I’m either not in the mood or just too tired and end up with something pretty awful. This one I'm not too sure about. There are elements of it that I like.

This doodle is the product of one of those nights where you have nothing better to than to stay up till six in the morning, watching bad TV. It was probably around midnight when I started the drawing and a relatively OK film had just started, so I thought ‘why not’? Straight away the sketch was looked pretty lame and I realised that I could either ditch it or just doodle over it until it turned into something, if not good, at least interesting (or with elements of interest). Regardless of the end product, the six hour drawing practice was reward enough.

For some reason I’ve always had a thing for vines and root systems. Maybe it’s the unexpected forms they throw up or perhaps it’s the functionality of them. Either way, here’s a quick line drawing that I made of a vine that I saw growing up the side of a structure in a park in Washington DC.
