Shortly after completing my Penarth View cover illustration Penarth Pier Pavilion asked me to illustrate the newly refurbished Pavilion, along with two other talented local illustrators, Matt Joyce and Suzanne Carpenter.
I’m into drawing ducks, but mostly tiny ones so I needed a big one.
His name is Duck and he’s got a lady friend, Lady Duck. Together they happily fly pretty high.
March is a month (.) that usually deepen my lines and makes me feel less young than the day before (this bizarre birthday thingy).
But March is also this time of the year when I plunge myself into a busy sketching process to complete the annual Serco Prize for illustration. This year I’m going to reveal my London best kept secret: The Blackheath Cavern Club.
A hairy character inspired from my recent trip in Greece (only the duck is British).
Obviously inspired by the previous duck based post, here is a little sketch with a duck, an octopus, and a fish.
I’m pretty sure this is a ridiculously bold statement but, – really -, time is flying like ducks are swimming and those three little guys I met the other day are certainly right. Wait or you’ll get wet. Do you see what I mean? Never mind, they do.
My dear blog hasn’t been fed for over a month, shame on me, so I had to find a quick way to fix this before I disconnect from the little world I know (=holidays!).
This is it for now and as a famous duck said, “better to wait, than being wet”. Sorry, I can’t remember his name (it’s in duck anyway).
This illustration is the first of a serie of three I’ve done during my recent family break in France. I’ve been lucky enough to enjoy the last bit of summer and south of France isn’t exactly the worst place for that. The sun out there is definitively not the same as the London’s one!
I remembered I use to draw a lot of body-builded characters when I was a child and as a selfish tribute to myself I decided to do it again, but with a touch of sensibility as I’m such a sensible person… and I love ducks.
