A3 sketchbook

Decided I like the sketches below enough to put some time into scanning and photoshopping a bit of life into them.

A3 sketchbook

Four quick ink and brush sketches that turned out not too shabby.
Morgan Freeman, Nick Cave, a young Stephen King (he did come out a bit like Rolling Stones fan, Mark Chapman) and Bob Dylan. The reason for the choices? I'm reading Stephen King's 'Dreamcatcher', Morgan Freeman was in the terrible film version. Nick Cave and Bob Dylan because I was listening to... You've guessed it - Nick Cave and Bob Dylan.

Illustrated Pengiuns

Some kind soul has dumped four boxes of books in my local co-op. I spent a bit of time going through them yesterday, showing utter disregard for my rapidly thawing frozen peas, and came away with these beauties.
