Microcar Sketch (tutorial video)


A wee sketch of a wee car – I’ve done this as the beginning of a series of vehicle sketch and design tutorials… part of the reason there hasn’t been much posted here recently! Here’s the tutorial.

2017 F1 concept sketches


Trying to get a head start on my 2017 F1 concepts, the sketches above are largely the same but with different detailing… Thinking of using elements from all 3…

More from British Car Day, 2016, love these cars. If these don’t make you smile, I don’t know what will…  🙂

Alfa, Italian Car Day

Alfa 2600

Another sketch on the new Muji Sketch pad, this one limited to verithin pencil. I think a better result. This was a beautiful, single owner Alfa Romeo 2600 at Italian car day. I made sure that I parked my car about 3 cars away from this… 🙂

Ferrari, Italian Car day

Ferrari 365

Got a new sketchbook from Muji which I quite like, craft paper as you can see. Did this sketch of a lovely Ferrari 308 GTB from Italian car Day 2016, but am a little unhappy with it. Love the paper, but I used Payne’s Gray for the tone which was a mistake, and then tried to rescue it by over-rendering it… Ivory Black would have served better if I’d used it sparingly. Ah well – next time.

Still think of Higgins and Magnum every time I see this car! 🙂

Another Win for Wickens


A great weekend for Wickens in Moscow – a win in race one and a hard fought fifth in race two which vaults him to second in the championship. Race one was amazing with Rob opening up a 12 second lead at one point in rain that can only be described as “teeming”..  very impressive.

Italian Car Day 2016, Alfa GTV

Alfa GTV

This is a beautiful GTV – I’ve seen this one before as it belongs to the gentleman who sold me my Spider. Even when I was looking at the Spider, my eye kept drifting over to this car (though it wasn’t for sale). This car is really, really, sharp… just mouth watering.

View from the Red Lion

Red Lion

Sketched this while having lunch at the Red Lion, the only Pub in Avebury. It’s also the only pub in the world inside a stone circle (or a henge). We had lunch and a couple of drinks and then went out and walked amongst the stones, down to Silsbury hill and the West Kennet barrow – all neolithic sites in the area.

Miss Britain III


Came across this in the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich. Very cool but slightly scary looking vehicle – This was a speed record boat from 1933, built of aluminium sheet over a wood and aluminium frame. A little bit “steam punk” but needed more brass! 😉
