Late last year there was a story of a Bengal tiger called Cara who was given a gold tooth. Of course, it looks amazing. Cara, who lives in a German zoo, can now gnaw bones to her hearts content while looking badass.

I did a sketch of her in my sketch diary and gilded her tooth, so I hope you like it!

10 year redraw fox supermarket trolley

Way back (I posted it on behance in 2012 but I think I drew it long before then), I did a sketch of a fox at the supermarket. You can tell it’s long ago because the fox has those free plastic carrier bags which were thrown around everywhere without a care. I thought I’d redraw it because I haven’t redrawn old things of mine before, and I’m still rather fond of the idea of a fox pushing a trolley. 😀 It’s strange, because I’d totally forgotten about it, that this is probably one of the seeds of what I do now. For that reason alone I wanted to redraw it.

Sadly, my fox has hit the bottle in a big way since I last saw him. I hope you like him and maybe find some encouragement from seeing this example of how time and practice improves your skills.

I might colour him at some point if I get some time to. That’d be interesting!

Peace, love and light,

There is, one knows not what, sweet mystery about this sea, whose gently awful stirrings seem to speak of some hidden soul beneath.

Hello friends! This whale illustration might be one of my favourite things that I’ve ever drawn.

Although I can’t say that it’s an illustration from Moby Dick (wrong type of whale). I loved this quote from Moby Dick by Herman Melville and *shock* haven’t drawn a whale before! That had to be set right.

This is an A3 size watercolour painting on Arches watercolour paper. Masking fluid was used to write the text before paint was applied, and alcohol (white rum :D) was used to create the texture of the sea. I really love both of the effects. The only thing I might do differently now is to make the sky dark maybe? Please tell me what you think!
