THE SHEEP SHACK, BOAT OF GARTEN, AVIEMEORE, SCOTLAND
Haven't done much at all for a while but I have just finished my first watercolour effort in ages taken from a photo I took on a recent trip to Scotland. I'm not sure about it and may have another go soon.
I recently attended only the 2nd ever UK NCN meeting at a Travelodge in Stansted. There were over 20 of us (even some women!) from all over the place including Dubai, Holland and Spain. It was a great event with drinking, socialising and even some drawing done until the small hours.
"REDUNDANCY! WHERE AM I MEANT TO PRACTICE MY PUTTING?"
"THE GREENKEEPING'S NOT WHAT IT USED TO BE."
CREDIT CRUNCH GOLF
A journalist friend asked me to do some cartoons for a golf trade magazine that he is hoping to start up based around an article highlighting the effects of the credit crunch on the world of golf. I submitted 8 sketch ideas and they chose three cartoons for me to ink up. Let's hope they get published!
I recently attended the annual European Mini-Con for NCN members in a little town on the coast of Holland (followed by a mad one nighter in Amsterdam). About 20 caricaturists attended the 3 day event, mainly from Holland and Belgium but 3 of us were from the UK and a couple from China/Japan. It was a fantastic environment in which to learn and socialise despite getting my face ripped to shreds.
