Dog House Music

After re-visiting his albums recently and loving 'the three string trance blues' I couldn't help but want to sketch this guy. Still lots to do, but trying my best to keep it loose, hope you like.

Update: I should also mention that I managed to meet Steve at Glastonbury and show him my portrait & my Johnny Cast one too.

A Quick Sketch

After deciding I was spending too long on recent pieces I thought it best to get back to some sketching, so I tried my best not to think too much and knock this up pretty quick.
Anyway, thoughts as always are welcome, click for a larger view... Hope you like it.

I was VERY pleased to see that Reece Shearsmith of The League Of Gentlemen & Psychoville approved of my efforts, as a result Psychoville may well be the subject of my next painting?

Alabama 3

A big favourite of mine for many years are the Brixton collective Alabama 3.
Although best know for the Soprano's sound track they have an incredible back catalogue and are easily one of the best live bands in the country.

Praise be!

I decided to begin with the bands frontman Larry Love before starting on Rev D.Wayne Love
Thanks to Chris Sharpe for the cracking reference pic

Chris Morris

"Anyone for Cake?"

A work in progress snippet here of Chris Morris.
I've really taken my time with this one, mainly because I have been a fan of all his work for years and just wanted to do him justice. This has proved pretty difficult, Chris is incredibly illusive and notoriously camera shy, as a result sourcing reference pics has been the main bug bear of this project.

Consequently I have had to work from screen shots, along with some more recent shots of him,
also having to don a suit an pose for my own reference.
I decided to base the 
peice on the Drugs episode of the acclaimed series Brass Eye, in which
(for those who havn't seen it) Morris lampoons the media's take on drugs in society.

Above is a little tease of the work so far... although it should be finished very soon, all being well the next couple of days...

Robert De Niro Sketch

What's right is right
Tried something different with this one, did my best to keep it loose (which is difficult for me) Will revisit this at a later date, but in the mean time...

"you talkin' to me?!"

Ricky Gervais

Been meaning to get round to do Ricky & his fangs for a while now. Tried hard to push the realism & detail in this, think its about finished (although, as usual I'll probably re visit it for further tweaks)
As usual thoughts are welcome.
