On the double D

While chatting one night to a pal on twitter I came up with an idea for a sketch. The pal in question has a thing for the American super hero Dare Devil. The plan was hatched and away I went. Downloaded a picture off the net and spent two evenings sketching away. Truly enjoyed it.

How it all started

Summer 2008 and we have visitors over. We're all out in the garden watching Carmel and Ray's son Joe happily playing in the sun so I grab the camera to get some snaps. One picture in particular came out quite well.

Some months later I decided to do something I hadn't done since I was in school, sketch it. After getting all the materials together I gave it a go. This is the result.

To this day it's my favourite. Joe by the way is a special boy with special needs and has a special place in my heart.

Slash cover

Some time ago a friend approached me and ask would I do a sketch of his grand daughter.
Of course I said yes. It was an honour in fact. Little did I know the picture in question already appeared on the cover of a slash solo album I'm told.

I'm sorry for the standard of the photo, it was some time ago.

Part 2

At a loss for subject matter I turned to a friend for inspiration. Her suggestion was Tom Cruise.
Our friendship nearly ended there and then.
We compromised on Brad Pitt.

I rarely get to finish some of the stuff I start. I always seem to get side tracked. This usually means at any given time I have a stack of half done hair brained ideas.

For once I actually finished something and in one sitting. Which is quite the achievement for me.

I did take step by step....ish photos of the work. I've decided to post them one by one.

Hope y'all like.
