Snublic Drawings @ The Level Best ArtCafe
Have always been a keen drawer and enjoy sketching where and whenever I get the chance.
As my friend and mentor would say 'there's no better way to spend a few hours than with a smoke and some painting' (referring to his pipe smoking : )
Studied Graphic Design and Digital Media, later Computer Animation at University and have been drawing continually since 2006.
Having chosen to study music at school rather than art I consider myself a self taught illustrator but have been influenced and aided by friends and mentors along the way.
The work here is mainly black and white cartooning, satirical microcosms of issues and topics of personal interest or scenes of places I've visited.
Work mostly in ink with a crowquill dip pen but enjoy light and shade studies in pencil and may move onto painting at some stage.
Current aim: to complete a drawing a month for as long as the work ethic holds out (though if the work gets any bigger [most pictures here were drawn in an A2 sketch pad] it may take longer).
Prints are available on demand and prices range from £10 to £50 for a limited edition signed print.
Have a gallery show of original pieces at least once a year and am always on the look out for interesting commissioned drawings (the cost for these depends on the scale of work involved but I generally get robbed on what I'd earn an hour, so it's more about the joy of drawing).
regarding commissions should one come to mind, or if you're interested in buying a print (they look a lot better than they do on a PC screen)
Thanks for reading.
