I went to see Neil Gaiman talking about his new book Nose Mythologies at the Southbank centre. He was a wonderful speaker and it was amazing to listen to him read a story from his book aloud.
I got to the Southbank about an hour early, so sat in their cafe and thought I’d draw a picture of Neil. I really like his face and thought he’d make a lovely character study.
I’m a natural sketcher and I work best fast and loose. I always feel like I lose the feeling of the piece if I trace a neater version.
Although I get a real buzz from polished finished pieces, I often feel prouder of my loose pencil scribbles.
I’ll upload what I’m currently working on in here, along with older work from the archives.
