Change of direction... some caricature practice.

Here's a fast-ish comicky drawing I did this morning. Apologies for the lack of posting, but things have been somewhat retarded between non-sleep deadlines and moving house, so hopefully I can get back on track now...

Here's another foray into the realm of caricaturing. This time of our president, Jacob Zuma.
Sketch for a new series of ink pieces and my stomping ground of Table Bay.
Here's a recurring apparition and a photo set from a trip to Langa township in Cape Town. A vivid place full of character and characters.
Off to Mozambique for a week, so more snaps are imminent!
Here's a rambling ink piece I've been growing.
The shots I took at a gig over the weekend. The Springbok Nude Girls are a LEGENDARY South African outfit and well worth checking out.
Here's a video of their tune Blue Eyes, enjoy!
(Posting will continue to be intermittent as there's a lot going on right now, but that also means there's a lot of good stuff on the horizon!)
Hey man, love your art, the pictures are really cool, i especially like those
in mozambique. The drawings are great too, i like the last one ink,
inspiring work in general, keep on sharing

Well, the next episode is upon us!
I have arrived in Sydney after a few very interesting days in Malaysia and the process of setting up my work operation is now pretty much complete. Painting, ink and digital work is ready to go(and has begun!), so stay tuned and I'll keep you posted.
Pictured is the last oil piece I did before leaving SA. The painting was a parting gift for (and of) my NSRI base (Station3) in Cape Town. They're a great bunch of people who incidentally pulled off a pretty intense rescue this week, so well done once again!
Hope you're all good and only the best for the festive season, stay safe out there!

MY DAILY SKETCHES
If you can read this, I gave you 5 stars
Here's the first photo set of my recent trip to Mozambique. After spending a long, hot day at Lanseria Airport, we flew to Maputo and experienced a colourful landing courtesy of a fierce crosswind and a little twin turboprop. What followed was a blacked out and sleepless night owing to the powerless AC unit and closed windows, mosquitoes being public enemy #1. The following morning we hit the road and crossed via ferry to Katemba and headed south to Ponta D'Ouro for the weekend. Zero roads mean stuck vehicles are commonplace, which is where today's snaps end.
For captions for the photos, check out my PHOTO BLOG.
Oh, and merry Christmas to all.
I love the direction you have taken with the sB. I have not been here since March...I am impressed. Your style is evolving in an interesting way.
btw...love the pics....
Some environments and more snaps of Mazambique.
Day two and three in Ponta D'Ouro near the South African border. It was all pretty leisurely, surfing and hanging about with my sister's family. Also went on a brief site visit with my brother-in-law before hitting the road back to
Maputo, but more of that in the next post.
More photos, with captions, HERE
Here are some more shots, hanging out in Ponta before returning to Maputo on the Sunday. We were stuck in Katemba, south across the water from Maputo, waiting on the ferry for about two hours are the early tropical night crept up on us. The following morning we learned that the pontoon between the vessels and the mooring jetty(on which our vehicle was sitting for about ten minutes while boarding) had sank mere minutes after he had crossed over it. Close call that we had no knowledge of at the time!
After this adventure, the following day, we ventured into Maputo proper, which is an experience all unto itself.
Here's a reconditioned ink sketch I did at the airport flying back from Mozambique a month ago. And speaking of which...
Downtown Maputo, the old Portugese fort, and some other bits.
HAPPY NEW YEAR! Here's a bunch of new scribbles, with fresh ones brewing as we speak.
All the best for 2012!
Carpentry, Dogs and Departures. That sums it up, pretty much.
