Doodles

I'm not good at maintaining a sketchbook, but wish I was. Those hardcovers are intimidating. I'll doodle on A4 sheets of printer paper though, fill them up and then scrunch them up. I broke that last rule to scan and post these from yesterday evening. Ideally having them online will force me to improve - to search more whilst drawing - rather than absent-mindedly regurgitating the same generic faces and poses!

Beautiful sketches. I always doodle on copier paper too. It's only recently that it's dawned on me to stick them in a sketchbook.

Simon, these are gorgeous! As lovely as your new pseudo- realist Vertigo style is, please don't stop drawing like THIS.

I have a big Sainsbury's cool bag full of sheets of a4 paper I've been doodling on. I only seem to be able to draw on cheap paper.

Hi Craig! A cool bag for continually hot drawings! Thanks, Gents, I really appreciate your encouraging words. And no, I won't stop drawing like that.
