Eavesdropped – Zombies

Eavesdropped is a drawing game for 1 or more.

You play it like this:

1. Listen out for snippets of conversation you hear as you go about your daily business – people overheard in a cafe, or a fragment of conversation in the street, that kind of thing.

2. Turn the first coherent comment you overhear into a picture.

3. Share the result. And you’re done!

Sketches from the beach

Here are a few sketches of people on the beach at Robin Hood’s Bay, where I’ve been staying. The weather across the week was changeable so the beach-goers ranged from sunbathers to determined British holidaymakers braving elements with ice-cream stubbornly in hand. The couple in deckchairs had even come equipped with umbrellas, which came out a couple of times. I really enjoyed sketching from life, trying to capture people before they moved on. There’s nothing like it for getting you to take notice of you surroundings.

The Railway Museum again

I had a great meet-up last week with my local SCBWI group at the railway museum. It’s always fun to hear what other writers and illustrators are up to and see some of their latest projects. As well as a catch-up we also found time for a look round the museum itself. The place is full of interesting little mechanical bits and pieces. Instead of drawing trains I drew bits of trains and turned them into robots.
