After making my new sketchbook, I've been taking it out pretty much everywhere I go. I've been drawing a lot of people in Birmingham City Centre, walking about, waiting at Snow Hill train station, in and around the Bullring, shopping (not that they like it, i've had some pretty nasty looks from people!) Mainly for the shape and poses people make. Then I've just been doing some general doodles here and there for practice :) I've also been drawing items around the house, I'm doing this within different rooms, so far I've done our bathroom.

I also had a dream I was a zombie, so I decided to document this by drawing it.

I saw the Finnish thrash metal band Children of Bodom live at the 02 Academy in Birmingham on the 8th April 2011. Totally inspired by this gig I decided to draw their main guitarist and singer, Alexi Laiho. I used reference from the photo on Wikipedia;

I also took one of my old plasticine models and turned it into a drawn character

These aren't finished yet, still a work in progress :) I'm going to add more emotion drawings and a few more stance poses.
