My dad comes face to face with a kudu!

Today is my dad's birthday, and early last month he was involved in a motorbike accident whilst driving back from a Harley rally. A kudu decided that it would be a good idea to jump in front of his bike, causing him to crash into it's hind quarters. The result was an interview with the tarmac and a few nasty road rashes and some broken bones. In the end the kudu was nowhere to be found. This is my reenactment.

June Moleskine Sketches

Some sketches I did over about the course of a week this month. It's been cold okay, and the hearth is an awesome studio.

Finally! Some personal work!

Its been a good couple of weeks since I have had a chance to do some personal work, in part due to the fact I have taken on some extra part time freelance work. I cannot say much about it, but I am busy doing illustration and after effects work on an animated short. 

The work-in-progress below is a little experiment I'm doing with an interesting colour palette. Hope it turns out okay.

Some sketchbookin'

I went to Kirstenbosch Gardens the other day in Cape Town to do some drawing with my girlfriend, and a friend of ours, Juliette Bisset (Go check out her photography!). Such a super place, I really must get a Kirstenbosch card so I can go there more often!

(On a side note: Something really awesome that is currently under construction in Kirstenbosch is a canopy walkway designed by Juliette's brother, Christopher Bisset. When it is finally unveiled it should be pretty amazing. Check out pictures of it here.)

And below are some sketches from my sketchbook. I reckon I'm going to colour these first two guys below right.

Clown Fish Boobies

A drawing I did last night. It's been a while since I did something just for the sake of nothing in particular. What more could one want: Boobies and clown fish to make you happy :)

Printh Charming

I haven't done an illustration like this before, and after finding out about the illustrator Chris Campbell, I decided I wanted to try something similar to his style. Meet the thuper thekthy printh charming accompanied by Mulch, his ever omnipotent sidekick.

Winter Sky

An illustration I did last night of a wintery landscape. I used this image that I found through Google images for reference.
