I don't really like to talk about my charity work, but…

I posted my original sketch for this little logo the other week, so I thought I may as well share the finished result. Believe it or not I was asked to participate in this event as a, well… participant. I politely declined the offer to don a spandex, sequined suit, opting instead to offer my services as a graphic designer.

I can't help but think it has been one of my better decisions.

Doc Cochran & Dan Dority

More Deadwood. Just a sketch this time: not sure when I'll find time to ink and colour these chaps, so thought I'd just post it now. I tried to draw a couple of the show's female characters this morning but I really struggled for some reason. Just couldn't capture them. Will try harder and see how it goes some other time. Bye for now.

Strictly Just a Sketch

I have been super-busy this week, so all my good intentions of daily warm-up sketches and such like have – naturally – gone to seed. I have also been working on some quite diverse (for me) projects which has made it an atypical, though enjoyable, week of work. This little sketch was done tonight for a logo I am working on for someone. I quite liked the energy of it: all those flowy lines and sharp angles. Kind of 40s inspired, I suppose.

Anyhoo. It's a bit different to the usual, so I thought I'd post it.

Cy Tolliver

Another Deadwood sketch, this time that fiendish rogue, Cy Tolliver.
He may have looked better at the sketch stage in truth, this one seems less cartoony and more caricature-like, but I am happy enough.
On with my day, then, I suppose...

Al Swearengen: The results of this morning's "Cerebrobics" (Cerebral Aerobics) as it is now brilliantly known. (Wish I could claim to have coined that one, but alas no. Well done, Macdonald…)

I am well into these Deadwood sketches now. Cy Tolliver tomorrow, methinks…
