Ali Williams speed sketch

Another screen recording, this time of tall timber Ali Williams. These clips are great to review my work and adjust my methods. The final artwork is after the clip.

Ben and Owen Franks

Sketched the behemoth Franks brothers over the weekend, very happy with the scale I managed to achieve. Also made myself a virtual gallery in an effort to persuade certain people that a real life gallery of my work would be worth a punt.

Jerome Kaino video!

I've been meaning to do something like this for awhile and finally took the plunge to figure out how to do it. The sketch took me about 80 minutes in total, but with a bit of technological jiggery-pokery I sped it up and squeezed it into 1:30 minutes! Off to add some colour to big, bad Jerome - will record that and post it soon.

Michael Jones and Zac Guildford

Did you guess correctly? Last post I showed the eyes of a commission I'd been working on, and this week I can reveal that it is The Iceman Michael Jones! The scorer of the first ever Rugby World Cup try back in 1987 will be guest speaker at the Upper Hutt Cossie Club on Thursday 28 July.

I've also restarted work on the rest of the All Blacks squad for this year's World Cup. The picture is becoming a little clearer on who will make the cut and baby faced flyer Zac Guildford looks like he'll be part of the 30 man squad.
