Quick scribble of Sydney's Cathedral and snaps of The Forum in Melbourne.
What a excellent sketchbook! Both drawing and photography. I love the how dynamic your sketches are and the black and white compositions are beautiful.

This is the latest piece I did for the local Ozcomics comp, the subject being The Punisher. Since a number people have asked, I figured I might share some brief notes on the process. Below is the rough layout sketch, which I then fleshed out on Bristol board in red pencil before proceeding to ink the sucker.
Here are all my sticks, from the colour clutch pencil and Pentel brush pen to the dipping pens I use. There is a standard generic steel nib, a Gillott 303, which is a hardy, versatile little guy, and the fancy glass pen is a wonderful new acquisition of mine. It gives a very consistent line, not unlike a roller ball, but in the same ink you happen to be using for all the work. The fine-tipped rolled ball is what I have in my pocket at all times and was used for the layout sketch. I use Pebeo Indian ink, which is the most versatile I've ever encountered, and I've tried a lot of ink!
Here's a quick graphite doodle and another rainy night scene from Kuala Lumpur. At least in the tropics it's never really cold.
Some Bat sketches and a building front in Fitzroy, Melbourne.
Roughs for a Star Wars piece I did a while back. See the finished product here.
Photo: Massive headstones from a Dutch VOC graveyard in Melacca. These are the same guys who settle the Cape, so the names are a pretty strong echo of our lot back in SA.
Working on the ten thousand hours...
Quick, two minute sketches and a bit of decor from a wedding I attended recently.
This is an absolutely kick-ass drawing. I love the way you draw environments with ink. Your confidence and your sense of composition really made the picture!
Would love to see more of this stuff.
And cool photos BTW
Wow your inks and photos are so amazing!
I especially like the one in post #879, the style and composition are fantastic c:
Two sets of life drawings and another Monorail shot from KL.
This week's submission to the Ozcomics comp. Click here and go like to vote for my ass!
The B&W piece was submitted as it has a bit more punch than this colour version. The initial layout sketch is at the bottom.
Here's another life sketch and a snap of the Melbourne skyline.
Another life drawing and snap of Federation Square down in Melbourne.
PS: If you like my Spawn piece, then LIKE it so I can win this comp!

I was fortunate enough to have Vivid Festival in my neck of the woods recently, a series of insane light shows, projections and installations around Circular Quay. Phenomenally inspirational stuff which will no doubt lead to the seed being sown for bigger and better creative explosions down the line. Well done and many thanks to the organisers for something very unique.
Here's the Website and Facebook page.
Your environment sketches are just something else! Keep at it dude, awesome sketchbook.

Figuring out the bones of Hergé's drawings.
And Maximus the pooch.
Some more explorations of Hergé's style and a snap taken on Penrith Lake.
Some life drawings and silhouetted crowd at a Mike Patton show earlier this year.
Another sheet of life drawing and the view from ruins on my friend's farm in Witsand, Southern Cape.
Don't mess with these Melacca rickshaw cowboys. Their lights will blind you and their bass will make you vomit.
Life drawings and a photo from Mike Patton show earlier this year.
Some life drawing. And a snap from Sea Rescue training in Table Bay(Cape Town) last year. Getting serious withdrawal!
I vote 5 stars Excelllent! on this thread... I made my day while looking at your art... thank u man!
You 3 last digital sketches are really great, the other ones have something timid that does not look as expressive as your ink works, btw, I prefer the dipping pen ones rather than the dry brush, but both are very cool.
That ink landscape on a double page is very remarkable ^^
BTW I'm talking about the page with an ink landscape in an open sketchbook, covering both pages of the sketchbook, somehow it appeared to me as your last page...

Another life drawing and a back-alley snap from central Melbourne.
