Old Crow

This is probably one of the quickest of my quick-fire drawings. Sometimes a few simple lines are enough.

Don't Blame Coco

Likenesses aren’t really my forte but I don’t think that this one is too bad. I made this quick-fire drawing of the singer Coco Sumner after seeing her band, I Blame Coco, play next to the roof-top pool at Shoreditch House a few weeks ago. I noticed that when she sings, she has a quirkily expressive mouth. Hopefully I caught that in the drawing – if not, blame my drawing skills, not the subject matter.

Fire Angel

This is from a late 80's/early 90's sketch book that I recently come across. It must have been a rough sketch that I made for one of my paintings which later became a magazine cover.

Disney Mode

It's surprising how many odd cartoon characters you end up creating when you try to just sit down and make as many quick-fire drawings as you can in a short space of time. It's almost like there's a Disney default setting that gets activated somewhere deep in your brain, when you get too tired to concentrate.

Component Drawing

Not really a doodle, this one - more of a considered drawing. As a sculptor and compulsive collector of rubbish I'm never very short of things to sketch. In this drawing I gathered up all the bits and pieces that I had lying around on my work bench and proceeded to sketch them, morphing together.
