Portrait Commission

A customer from where I work (Staples) asked me if I could replicate an old photograph of an ancestor of his. This is the final result, which he seemed very pleased with. I used Derwent graphite pencils to complete the sketch. I don't usually draw portraits so I expected it to be more challenging than it was. I think the amount I've been drawing lately has been paying off!
Size = A4 approx.

New Work

So sorry for not updating for so long! I've been working on a few things lately. Here are some drawings from recent doodles/competitions/progression:
Firstly, for a competition from one of my favourite musicians, Hayley Williams. Her new single with Zedd called 'Stay The Night' helped inspire this piece for a competition.

Secondly, a piece inspired by the band Bad Religion, their song '21st Century', which is about people caught up in today's world and are too involved in gadgets rather than things that really matter. People who have been dumbed down by media etc.

Finally, just an experimental piece in the style of a tattoo design.
