Just sometimes I worry; maybe I worry too much. Out of worry on a heap of levels and playing fields I came up with this fun character. But hey we continue readers; reet kettle on me thinks big time...

Fish Brain

How come you get all these ideas, when your on with other tasks that prevent you from doing or putting good ideas into practice. Then when you get time on your hands you struggle for an idea or spark of creativity. Thank goodness the weather is picking up perhaps that will aid the idea process for me.

This Aft

This afternoon I went cycling and it was great when you were in the sunshine but it was still a little chilly. Cannot wait for the serious sunshine to begin. Yesterday I went to Hornseys in Ripon, North Yorkshire; to deliver works for my forthcoming solo show which starts May 14th to June 14th. Pop along and see my new prints and some original drawings which will hopefully make folk chuckle..

Here you go I've managed a drawing of one Mr Sherlock Holmes and I'm quite liking him and his pipe. I'm Looking forward to the Sherlock Holmes, Guy Ritchie film sequel this year and the BBC sherlock drama to return to the screen. Now I need to use my detective skills and find the teabags..

By Eck Sir!

By Eck; I've not had a bad week so far I've done a load of artwork completed a few miles on the bike done my bit for charity and if I'm not mistaken experienced some spring fashion in Donny with the fine weather we are having. Failing that I've had a brew or two and consumed a dozen or more fig rolls.

Le Sunshine

Well I've been grafting indoors on what looks outdoors a beautiful sunny day in Donny. All I can hear is lawn mowers and birds singing and workmen swearing. It's a grand day readers and alternatively a cold glass of pop is a healthy alternative to a brew on a day like today; "We Continue"

Super Moon

Just been reading about tonight's Super Moon where the moon will be a full one and the closest its been to earth in 19 years... Crikey I feel a Patrick Moore experience is on the cards perhaps by tomoz I'll be supping a brew with a monocle by tomorrow evening.

Meanwhile the sun is out in Doncaster today its a lovely Spring day just popped out for a sarnie for my lunch. I love a brisk walk down the shops; anyhow kettle on then I shall crack on and see if I can complete this artwork in a "Ding and a Dong"

Red Nose

Well over the last few days I've been busy drawing, doing research doing the jokes, done some miles on my bike, had a haircut. Today I even got involved doing some drilling with a power drill that is unheard of for me. All I know is that at the end of the week its Red Nose day what a brilliant event that is.

The Judge

No students; I don't look like Alan Carr... I'm more of a Judge Jules, Gordon Ramsay hybrid in the look department. Any how I've got a new Tv hero Guy martin from "The Boat that Guy Built" is essential tv viewing in my book what a top bloke he is and he loves a brew. I'm also warming to One Show host Alex Jones for that lasses charms; and smile.

Rain & Brews

Today I got soaked in the rain whilst out on my bike, I've really done some thought process in a couple of my sketchbooks had several brews in the process. This evening I've admired a few illustrations in the current British GQ magazine and come across a striking photo of One show presenter Alex Jones, I'm liking that welsh lass she's lovely.

Pancake Day

I'm just limbering up, taking it easy with the snap, later I need to set a new personal pancake consumption record for myself. I plan to go to bed with the belly ache, most likely. But in the meantime I've got some drawings to complete. Looking out the window the sun is out big time over Donny. If only I had a swimming pool in the back yard eh...

Northern Kid

Well today I've eaten fruit salad, I've eaten exotic fruit salad, worried about the spot on my chin that developed overnight. I've enjoyed the sun through the window which made Donny look a bit more St Tropez. I've enjoyed looking at some of my old work aswell as frowning at some of it. Then worried about developing more creases on my forehead. I've also enjoyed listening to the new Elbow album. Oh and Bob Diamond if you read this blog on your lunch break like I know some bankers do can I have a portion of your bonus...

On a brew break this aft; I managed to draw this above in an old notebook with a cheap pen. Previous to this I was drawing some strange characters. I have managed a few miles on my bike today and it did feel fresh first thing this morning.

Tuesday, 1 March 2011


Here you go I've drawn a pear. I seem after the weekend to have them on the brain hmmmm. I've managed to do a lot of sorting and little jobs today; which I've put off for a long while. Any how, I best crack on with tasks.
