Chog Jit Leong

This is my revenge on Jit, for his take on me.
This seamed to just flow and morph with ease, it makes a nice change for something to turn out as how you see it in your head, and then see it evolve and become what you see!
This one took me a while to do as I had to fit it in around other things, but it was really enjoyable to do.I thought that I would see what it looked like in black and white, I think it works well, if not slightly better, what do you think ?
I think I will do the black and white paintings first on the next picture for a change.

Niall O Loughlan

This is the sketch of a fellow Caricaturist, who lives and works in Ireland, he was one of my favorite artist when I first found out that there were others out there on the big wide web. He inspired me to try difrent styles and to find my own. Besides he hinted that hes thinking of drawing me so I thought Id get in first !
Im suprised that it has come out dry and not smudged and wet as while I was drawing away , I was also sneezing my head off and trying to keep ahead of a runny nose!
So all that is needed is for it to be finnished off, Id better get and do it I supose!

Old pencil drawings..

Wedding Anniversery

Well who would have beleived it, well first to be married and then to be married this long, though it seams that we have been married for ever, in a good way, but it seems only yesterday when we got married. My poor long suffering wife, Jane is still looking as beautiful as the day we got married and the first day my eyes fell into her beautiful smile and eyes full of fun and mischeif. Thanks sweetheart for putting up with me this long

Deck Emery

Here are two versions of a picture that Ive just finished of a mate who is in a band called the Rat Rods, who play locally, we are discussing the possibility of me drawing the whole band, so keep popping in to see the results.
Any way the second one was how it was meant to turn out, while the first one came about by a mistake while I was merging layers ( there was a goal and I merged the layers in the wrong order.....). Well it is the World cup and its the only time I ever watch Football! Anyways I kind of like the effect so much that Ive decided to post along side the original.

Deck Emery, lead singer of the RatRods

Its been a while, but here is a sketch for a friend who is the lead singer in a local band called the Rat Rods. He wants me to draw his whole band for promotion posters ect.,
I drew Malay to get his features right, though I may play around a wee bit more and push his features to the far extreme and see what pops up, and have some fun to boot!
I will finish off this one and post it once Ive got time, and Ive decided how to paint it !

Lily Cole

This is the lady from the film called The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, a film I have seen several times , thanks to my daughters obsession with Johnny Depp!.

Could be worse I suppose it could be Danny Devito!

Still painted in Photoshop.

Sir Smith Child

This is the second of my venture into local history, with this MP. Sir Smith Child lived between 1808 and 1896, so he managed to get away with the report on MPs expenditures (that has shamed and horrified modern British MPs!) for probably squandering his allowances on fine wine and a 32 bed roomed mansion for his little imaginary friend Egbert!

But alas he didn't manage to get away from !

Wedgie part 2

Mr Wedgewood looked as if he needed a quick 'nose job', as pointed out by one of my esteemed colleagues over on E-Caricatures, So here is the painting after Rinoplastic !

Josiah Wedgewood

This guy would be turning in his grave if the most infuetial person in the Stoke On Trent Pottery Industry, (yep there used to be one not so long ago, all gone due to cheaper imports and Foreign take overs!). This guy invented the Wedgewood Blue pottery, the stuff with the white faces and stuff on the side (every one has a bit of the stuff around these parts, a sort of badge of honour, you cant be a true potter if you aint got a piece!). From the vurtual hundreds of thousands who use to work in the Pottery industry, it is now down to the few thousand or so! Progress, yes I love it, from families working together in the same Pot bank, to the same family signing on the dole!...... and this was before this resesion hit us !!!!...................Rant over, on to the picture the father of the Pottries (Stoke On Trent, for the ones who were wondering!).....

Josiah Wedgewood......

If anyone has any comments about how great my work is or more likely how it can be improved let me know....... Ill just drink loads more coffee and sulk in the corner for a bit then see what I can do to improve it,........................................ if it needs it.!

Yvette Fielding

This is a quicky of the presenter of Livings Most Haunted, Yvette Fielding. She is more likely to frighten any spooks away than get to see any, (funny how when its quiet, or someone else 'see's' a ghost, she happens to be touched by the spooks or see's something!), Thus the strings holding the ghost up ! The green tint is for the Night vision cameras!

Tom Petty

computer woes

Went up to do some work on the computer and the dam thing has decided to have a dissy fit and not open up windows. Each time I try and start it it gets so far them suts down and then restarts. I have tried to open in safe mode which it did but then sulks and goes off again! Something about a DMboot.sys. being currupted. So it looks as if there will be no work on that and, its another trip to the computer doctor. Mind I was thinking of having the Hard drive scrubbed and widows XP re enstalled, so may be this will be the time to do it.! Happy times....
Thank goodness I have kept 99 %of my work on an exturnal HD, ha well back to pen and pencil for the weekend, lets see what I can come up with eh, keep watching................ .

Heidi Fleiss

I did this after spending the night sitting up with a painful shoulder. I had the idea for a few days, and decided to see if I could put it to screen. This only took about 3 hours, supper fast for me!

I decided to go for her natural look as she appeared on Celebrity Big Brother, I wonder if she thought that it was a remake of the zombie spoof of Big Brother, Dead Set, because she has come as a Zombie, same color, and just lies around a lot moaning!

Lady Soverien

After seeing this lady on the British Celebrity Big Brother, I thought that I would try and paint her , My Wife Jane and I are so sad that this will be the last one here for the so called Celebrity, tho I think that it should of been called we slept with a celebrity and I was one once- along time ago!
