iPad drawing

This is a drawing made with the Brushes app on an iPad, its just fab drawing on it, like junior school and fingerpainting. As I was in the giant Apple store on Covent Garden Piazza I just started drawing.

The Caffe Nero Mahjong Drive

Another print from an earlier sketch in central London. I was enjoying a quiet cuppa watching a row of people playing what looked like Mahjong. Everyone was hunched over the boards concentrating hard and looking very studious.

Crouch End loaders

I've been advised to concentrate on prints featuring people, so here's the next in the series.
It was drawn in Starbucks in Crouch End on one of the freezing days earlier in the year, although the trees are still trying to be in leaf.
3 different versions were made of this plate, I added drypoint scratches to the man with the thin legs as he was not standing out enough in the composition.

ps, wish me luck, I'm off to see a man with a gallery on friday...
