John Steinbeck

I finished reading "The Grapes of Wrath" a couple of weeks ago- John Steinbeck is a fantastic author and I can't recommend his books enough. This isn't the greatest drawing in the world- it's odd because I worked on this at an angle, then when it's upright it looks different?!

This is my favourite poet from the town I'm currently working in. His work includes a tribute to the Tay Railway bridge disaster and he is widely considered to be one of the world's worst poets, ever. He would stand on street corners selling his poems on scraps of paper. His best seller was a poem about soap. He is... William Topaz Mcgonagall. Poet.

Here is a link to his fan page -

Mission 006

Hey everyone, it's been a while! I've found myself quite busy these days and completely forgot about the blog. For that, I am sorry. I still have an idea for the Blob challenge but in the meantime if you are looking for something new to work on, here is a new mission:

Authors. I find they are rarely represented in visual form (except for the image on the back) so the new challenge is to illustrate an author, any author!

Take a look at this website for inspiration: http://heyoscarwilde.com/

Draw on!

Mission 005

Hello all, so its back to me to come up with a new 'mission'. Seems this blog is dying so I'll say this: If no one responds to this in the next 2 weeks I'm 'pulling the plug' (not to sound mean spirited, its just hard to keep something going that isn't working).

ANYWAYS- here is the next mission: I've stumped upon a website called "Travisty's Beard" (http://travistysbeard.blogspot.com/search/label/What%20Do%20You%20See%20In%20This%20Shape%3F) which is very similar to what we are doing here. I thought I'd borrow a challenge they did: Create an image with the shape shown above- it can be rotated, moved, scaled- it just has to include the shape in some way. NO distortion please... take a look at the website to see what they did.

Good luck- keep drawing.
