random drawings of humans

who are neither drawn from life nor done as a character development study for a project 

hello, this is me!

The thing that looks like a moustache is partly a shadow under my nose, and partly my left ear.

this is me too.

I wish I could bottle whatever was going through me when I drew this.

this

is me too – in a moment of self doubt . . .

Though it all came together later and I drew the wretched thing after all.

and this

was me on my last day working in the construction industry.

Not really  . . . “Farting is such sweet sorrow” was just a pun.

massage

often involves discomfort, I find.

This is my masseur, Wojtek

and this is his wife

Kasia – a lovely lady who used to be a snail farmer.

Picture commissioned by her and published with her permission.

I love her music, voice, lyrics, sense of humour.

This is a line from Knock ’em Out

I had a bit

of a Quentin Blake period in summer 2018.

As I was drawing this, I was thinking of the lyrics to Romeo and Juliet by Dire Straits. One of the saddest songs. The cooler they are, the harder they fall . . .

quentin blake

stayed in my system for a week or so, and then evaporated.

I love his work, but feel I’m cheating when I copy his style.

This was a character I invented; it’s not one of his.

here's a

random wizard for no reason in particular.

and a couple of policemen

inspired by Lindisfarne lyric – “they linked each other’s handcuffs”

from the song We Can Swing Together

and another

Lily Allen lyric.

This time from her song The Fear

cricket, coffee

this was a commission I was fairly happy with

max

 

My third grandchild looking like a grumpy old codger but sweet soft and cuddly really

there was a thing

in Instagram called eye meme which seemed like a good excuse not to draw anything new

for a

day or two

or

three

or

four
