Boats & Bathing Beauties

Hello. I hope everyone had a lovely Easter weekend. I've been drawing and painting and scanning as usual, the degree show hangs in one month! No time for a break for me. Oh no! I've been trawling through Shorpy for nice things to draw (mainly 1920s ladies in wonderfully unattractive bathing suits). Whenever I'm stuck for things to doodle Shorpy is a surefire place to find something wonderful. Like this crazy boat. Or the lovely ladies above, drawn at the weekend.

There's some beautiful stuff on The Good Machinery's site. Nice collaborations with Caroline Gaedechens (one of my favourites) and lots of nice cold colours and inky blues.

We've been playing with THIS all weekend (needs flashplayer.)

OK now to work! Its going to be a pretty intense month i think!
