Figure Drawing Book


This is another sketch book I made a couple months ago. I use it only to
practice anatomy. To keep myself in 'training' mode, it's so important.
I've been setting aside some time to keep exploring and growing.
And this was covered in card board and the spine, binding material.

Sketch pad


Had some stacks of drawing paper folded to this lovely size (210mmx150mm).
I made this sketch pad with a cardboard back and yellow bristol board for the front.
Can't wait to start doing some drawings in this!

Old, new


I have a couple books I made but didn't cover and this was one of them.
The pages are a bit old but I decided to try something new with this sketch book
covering it with cardboard and inking a design to make it new again.

Tiny books


These little books I made when I was into everything tiny and
the cover had to be red and there had to be string involved.

Peace


The inspiration for this came about while I was looking at the lush
hills and thinking if only I could fall asleep there.

Things grow


It's rainy season and everything looks lush and green and full. I did this
sketch from memory after seeing this lady in her garden one morning.

Who asked her


There's always somebody who doesn't want somebody to play. Then there's some
arguing about whether the game should start with or without this person or the game begins
too late or is abandoned. All in a day of play I guess.

Late night


Late night is a sequence about sitting still and allowing your mind to play tricks.
I have to say I'm enjoying all the discoveries from my 'small ideas' sketch book!

Spirit


I wanted this sketch to tell a story of two forms in the forest and the blue
indicating something else. A spirit, an external form that can only be seen in the
reflection in the water. Whether it's a good spirit or bad, they're not sure.

Deep Sea


The blue in this sketch just reminds me of that dark blue of the sea you see
from a boat or a plane. It looks inviting and scary at the same time.

Light


Playing with shape and colour. The shapes of faces getting lost in colour and light.

In Love


Being in love is so good and so painful especially
if the boy doesn't know you exist!

Memory


These sketches remind me of my childhood growing up on
my grandmother's farm, exploring, playing, climbing trees
and eating a lot of fruits!

Village


A sketch I did from memory. I always like to test myself to see
how much I could remember when I visit a place or observe something.

Magical


I like the magical feel of this image I did in my sketch book.
I like the process of putting down the lines and seeing where they take me.

Small ideas

Made this little one this weekend and I'm enjoying the neat size (6' 'x 41/2'').
It's perfect to do quick ideas or outdoor sketches.

Street Cart

I sketched this from a black and white photo I own. I used to walk around Port of Spain taking random images I was interested in at the time. This is a typical cart you'll see around town selling soft drinks, snacks, sandwiches, cigarettes etc. And the vendor hid her face when she saw me with my camera!

Pencils!


I have many pencils and these are a few I own. I like that they all
can give different lines and textures.

Cartoonist


My handmade call card.

Elle


I'm liking this character a lot, she looks mysterious, maybe she'll end up in one of my stories! On another note, I got myself an all-in-one printer that came with a scanner which has helped soothe the panic of not having a scanner. It's not bad but eventually I would want to get a better one.
