Sykes

I didn't know Eric Sykes looked so much like the lovechild of Leonard Cohen and Woody Allen till today. This is Eric Sykes, who died last month.

Here endeth Naarmamo 2011 and my opportunity to communicate to the outside world purely through the media of pencils and origami and photography and Harmony.

This morning I realised I hadn't drawn Shah Rukh Khan at all this year, which is a vile omission, so here he is. He is very happy that I have successfully completed Naarmamo 2011. He cares deeply about my every endeavour. YES HE DOES.

Will Hay in headmasterly garb ('cause I like drawing glasses). The scanner did some funny things to my shading - the mortar board looks solid black on the page but not at all on the screen - but nothing too egregious.

Just a couple of experimental sketches again. This is one of yesterday's pigeons done in pencil



Quite enjoyed being scribbly. I'd like to try it with oils or acrylics, but I don't have any at the moment. And this next is a wind turbine with wings:



This is basically just an image that interests me, though I'm not sure how best to render it. Tried Harmony but it was a bit of a mess. I might develop this further though at some stage. Deadline's over tomorrow (should make it!), so I'll be able to devote more time to naarting.

Jill Scott as Mma Ramotswe from the TV adaptation of The No1 Ladies' Detective Agency. She's lovely to draw. Her face is made of nice clean lines, which is thoughtful of it.

Hutch is WAY harder to draw than Starsky. I wasn't expecting that. He didn't look anything like Hutch till I rubbed out one of his eyes and shifted it almost an entire centimetre.

My portraits are limited to pictures I can find in my parents' house. Luckily I found a Starksy and Hutch annual from 1979. (Managed to get the scanner working for this one, which is why all my CAREFULLY BLENDED pencil marks have come back into sharp relief. Never mind.)

And one more for luck. )

I'm happier with this ship. I decided to be a bit less literal - the first version had properly measured lines and people and all the windows in the right place and a lifebelt, and this one doesn't. I want to work towards something much more stylised, but I don't quite know what yet. This is a start. The photo I worked from is of the Gulden Leeuw, a Dutch schooner built in the thirties. This isn't even slightly faithful.

Naarmamo is back! Hurrah for that. Also minor panic. I'm awful busy and in an elsewhere, so my artifying's apt to be somewhat curtailed this year. I suspect photography with come into play. But I did a quick portrait this morning, of Victor Spinetti in A Hard Day's Night, for the very good reason that his biography happened to be in my bedroom and there was a photo. I want to do some proper portraiting at some stage, actually taking a bit of time over it and that sort of thing - I don't know if I'll be able to, but that's the hope. Also I don't know who to draw this year. I'm not properly in love with anyone. Maybe Zeljko Ivanek. He's bald. That helps.
