not drawing from life

I feel like I've spent too long drawing from life recently, what with the public transport pictures. So, to recharge, I've been doodling without trying to think too much about what I'm drawing. It's been a lot of fun. I fancy doing a bit more of it.

Yes. Even if I'm drawing chairs.

For the third drawing, I was on the train listening to Bongwater. The speech balloon's from a track on their Power Of Pussy album. I hadn't listened to it on headphones since I was about 16.

tube etiquette

Ashleigh Young is a New Zealander living in London. 

On her blog, she wrote a lovely little piece about travelling on the tube, and she included a bit about my 'public transport' drawings. It's great to see that the drawings strike a note with people like Ashleigh. And what she's written about 'tube etiquette' is, I feel, exactly right.

While in Paris, I got to hang out with Gilbert Shelton, creator of The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers. I've been a fan of his since I was about thirteen or fourteen, I would think, so to sit and chat and eat and drink with him was a real treat. And what a lovely man Gilbert is.

I'll write up the interview properly sometime soon, but in the meantime, you can read a short piece that Matthew Rose wrote about the meeting (and other things) over on Philadelphia's 'The Art Blog'. 

You can also see more photos (including the drawing Gilbert did for me) over on my new facebook page. Did I mention that yet? I did?
