This is probably the drawing I like best in the Moleskine. I joined Wally Torta's self portrait challenge simply because I hate doing them! I started off gently by doing my hands. It shows things I like - tea, drawing, music and my favourite cup. The skull refers to my taste in music (I like all sorts of stuff) and is a nod to Holbein, one of my favourite artists.
The pencil seems to look enormous in this one!
Portrait with glasses.
First portrait of a cat. I just drew it on impulse seeing this cat's face on a book cover and I really enjoyed it. I've loved cats all my life but never drew animals. A little lightbulb moment!
A quick one of Tom Cruise to get some practice in.
A gratuitous drawing of some green olives since they are also in the Moleskine.
