Wall Street Journalist

Image
I took on a very quick turnaround task for the Wall Street Journal Sunday paper, just the other day. Another one in a series of illustrations done with a soft pencil on Arches Hot Pressed watercolour paper. This plus all the doodling I've been doing lately is making for a very monotone blog...but how do you like the style?

Heads go leor

I did my usual stint in the Alliance Française, waiting for my children to finish their Saturday morning classes. It's my one chance in the week to sit down, sip a decent coffee and let my mind wander freely. Sometimes I make an effort to draw a particular composition and other times, like last Saturday, I just doodle whatever takes my fancy.

Another doodle, for want of something better to post up.

The Late 'Late Jake Thackray RIP' Post

What can I say about this funny, intelligent and charming troubadour? Sadly, this unique man was taken from us far too young, in 2002. Enjoy the music, wit and the deadpan delivery -it's a joy to see somebody deliver pointed comedy without resorting to humiliating senior citizens or minority groups.[The video seems to have a little interference somewhere around the 2 minute mark but it passes].
