Tokyo Arigato project

I recently created this image for a competition for the 'Tokyo Arigato Project.' You may have guessed that the theme of the competition is 'Love,' hence the boy and the girl in a psychedelic setting- love is a drug and all that.

In my haste I didn't realise there was a hefty fee to pay for entering, and since the final prize seems paltry in relation to that, I decided not to enter, but to find another more worthwhile use for this image.

It was a good exercise creating this image- which is a combination of about three different earlier images I've made. I have a tendency to use black ink, so thought I'd give blue ink a chance.

I think my first love is black ink though.

when Leon from Bahrain came to visit

An old pal who studied at Leeds came to visit the other week.

He went back home to Bahrain last September, but came up to the U.K.
for a 2 week visit.

The top image is one of his drawings.

Elise and the actors

The other evening, I went along
to sketch some actors in rehearsal, directed
by Elise Rohde, playwright wunderkind.

They were practising in a room in the music department
of Huddersfield University- an impressive space
with an organ and two grand piano.

Here are the sketches I produced:

Sleeping Beauty

I created this for an English national
ballet competition, to design a series
of children's ballets.

This will be judged by Gerald Scarfe, and
seemed like a worthwhile, challenging and
interesting competition to enter.
