Been a fan of Depeche Mode for years, ever since the days when writing your favorite band on your schoolbag was a cool thing to do.

'El Niño' (work in progress)

The season is drawing to a close and Liverpool are the closest they've been to winning the League in 19 painful years.
Torres is on fire at the moment and if he keeps scoring the way he is right now, we're definitely in with a good shout!! This being 'quietly confident' lark is hard work!!

I rarely do these types of drawings anymore as I don't really feel that copying directly from a photo or movie still does much to improve my drawing skills.
I still enjoy doing them nonetheless. This is based on a still taken from the 'Watchmen' movie. I've not seen it yet but I read the novel way back when I was a comic book nerd.
This one took about an hour in Photoshop.


Here's another wedding invitation recently completed.

Thought I'd continue the Seinfeld theme and draw his close friend and accomplice, George. He's neurotic, self-loathing, insincere, insecure, dishonest and a coward with no redeeming qualities......maybe that's why I like him so much!!

This guy is one of my absolute heroes.
For eight years and 175 episodes, he co-wrote and starred in what must be still to this day, one of the best and funniest sit-coms of all time. That would be 'Seinfeld' of course.

He's either been offered a phenomonal amount of money or he's run out of bland comments as a pundit on 'Match of the Day', but Alan Shearer has shocked us all by taking the manager's job at Newcastle FC. He's such a legend up there which makes his decision even more baffling. If he fails to keep The Magpies in the Premiership, he's placing that legendary status in jeopardy, all for the sake of romanticism.
Personally, I don't think he's gonna pull it off. Newcastle are in freefall at the moment and the only hope they have is if the teams around them start playing even worse than they have been up to now.........yeah right.
