Soccer sketching

To practise my ability to draw people in movement, I thought it would be a nice task to try and draw a soccer player about to kick a ball. It's hard enough to draw a human being sitting or standing still, so I soon noticed the challenges that comes with drawing something in motion. Is…

A pen and marker Winnie

In the recent months I haven't had much time to do long painting sessions. Therefore, I've been doing a lot more sketching and drawing in the time gaps available each day. The other night I used about 30 minutes doing a quick pen and marker sketch. It's based on this drawing which I found randomly…

Just a cow being a cow

I haven't painted or drawn a lot of animals through the years, which makes me feel very insecure about adding them into the stuff I make. When I've tried to draw them, they end up just like they did in kindergarten with screwed up proportions and way to skinny legs. So to get some practice…

Little Italy, Manhattan

Another day, another marker drawing. This time I wanted to do a version of a picture we took in Little Italy, Manhattan a few years back. It looked like this: There's no doubt that the focal point in this picture is the teddy bear hanging upside down with a cloth over his/her eyes. That was…

An electric line with colours

Another session done, and another drawing of an electic line is put on paper. It's equally fun every time, even though I've drawn a lot of them lately. Put some birds on the lines, and the fun is complete! This time though, I wanted to add some colours to it. I've done a couple of…

The Activist (I guess)

I guess I'm on a roll when it comes to marker drawings, as I did another one recently. It feels like I'm kind of repeating my latest posts, but this is also a character I drew based on a magazine I saw a while back. I call her "the activist", since I picture her out…

An IT guy, I guess

I did another marker drawing the other day, based on a cartoon character i saw in a magazine. He had an Ipad, and looked pretty up to date on the latest gadgets, so I'm just assuming he is an IT guy or something. I guess he's on his way to buy another cool piece to…

The first marker man

It's been a while since my last marker drawing, so I thought it was time to pick up the pad again and see what came out of it. I had just seen a couple of cool, cartoonish illustrations in a magazine, They were added in an article about different types of personalities, and I just…

Dancing around with anatomy

As a way of becoming a better painter and drawer, I bought some tutorial books to study. One of the assignments in the books is to draw people dancing. By catching a moment of a dance, you need to get the movements of their body right. It becomes really clear if you mess it up, since…

“I’m talkin’ about like a big bear”

Sorting out some storage boxes in the attic, I came over this old, illustrated version of "The Jungle Book". It was quite fun to read again, but most of all I enjoyed all the cool illustrations in it. So I decided to have a go at some of them myself. I first chose one where…
