Ink works in progress and interior wall texture, somewhere in Melbourne.
Two ink sketches for my business card and the ritual bouquet throwing.
Dipping pen texture exercises. Of course this is prior to me getting my hands on some Gillott 303 nibs, so I should do some more pages now and see what results I get!
And some grazing equines.
More ink tests.
And rooftops in Kuala Lumpur.
More ink exercise and overhead tramlines in Melbourne.
I love the fact that you have your own ideas and dont just use digital technology. I also like the fact that you are using pen and ink, not used as much as it used to be. You are creating interseting, expressive and vibrant drawings. I also think your use of tone is particularly strong. Good stuff. I use Pen and Ink now and again. I still love Charles Dana Gibson. If you have never seen his work check it out. The subject matter is dated but that is just because of the era he worked in, but honestly, some of his line work is sublime.
Cant wait to see more.
The Mural's in the Fitzroy neighbourhood of Melbourne. Duh.
I really like where you're headed with the inking, hope to see more. The variety of line work you are doing with ink is very expressive and appealing.
Insert very insightful quotes here ...
- get back to work!
Some sketches and God-Beamed graffiti.
Growth piece and Melbourne street sign.
Hey thanks for dropping by my sketchbook. I love the freedom in your ink drawings.
It says you are located in Syd, but recently there have been a lot of Melbourne shots. Have you relocated or just visiting?
Keep up the good work, I will def check back here often
Thanks for the good word. I'm currently based in Sydney, but I move around as much as I can, generally that means visiting other places, and sometimes it means packing up and moving there!
Digging this stuff man - free, fun, and tasty textures Looking forward to seeing more!
Daryl Zero: "A few words here about following people. People know they're being followed when they turn around and see someone following them. They can't tell they're being followed if you get there first."
Today's ink piece and some architectural details from Federation Square in Melbourne.
keep on keepin on
SKETCHBOOK, PLEASE VIEW AND CRIT, CHEERS
Pieces for today. Another growth and a pile of masonry in Mebourne.
Thanks for the good word, man, much appreciated. The rooftop shot was taken from the hotel Furama where we were staying. Great place, except that we had shit stolen from our luggage when it was in lockup, which is not cool.
Sketches for a Daredevil comp a while back. They look better than the finished piece!
And a Not-So-Ferris Wheel in Melbourne.
Quick life drawings, these all too a few minutes apiece. And a mural in Melbourne in an alley FILLED with excellent pieces. Near The Forum.
lovely sketchbook, and some of those photos are really really nice too. Photography is yet another of those things that I will get around to one day after seeing work like this.
Keep on doing what you're doing
More life drawings. 5-10 minutes each. And another section of the facade at Federation Square, Melbourne.
A few drawings from our local sketch meet I did a while ago and a snap from Kuala Lumpur.

First of all thanks for taking a look at my skethbook, the work you did here seems hard to improve in any way in this particular style, very specialized, just looking at it raises my adrenaline.
I will probably say a lot of foolishness, but the sharp edges and aggressive style of your figures reminds to Ashley wood and Bill Sienkiewicz to me, and the crosshatch is genious, full of energy.
As a honest critique, I can say that I like a lot more your first drawings than the new ones.
Ahhh great inks as always, and i love all these photos, the one with the raised hands is especially cool.
This one is kick ass. It would be really sweeeet if you can apply this sorta style to your figures?
