I use drawing as a very accessible, flexible and direct way of making artwork.
In theory you can use a burnt stick or other basic item to create marks; I tend to use black oil pastels of various colours and sizes as they give me an immediate strong line, which is almost impossible to rub-out. So once I make a mark I’m committed to it.
My work has often been described as urban and visually strong. I’ve been influenced by comic books, pop art, Van Gogh and urban signage.

I continue to develop drawings of objects using old pastel on coloured paper. Here I’ve been studying An Ice Hockey mask and gloves with a view to combining drawings of these objects with others.

Studies of an Ice Hockey glove, tape measure and an army boot. All drawings are oil pastel on paper.
I use a quick quick drawing technique to keep the work fresh and honest, whilst tending to the technical skill side of my artwork.

Sketches with oil pastel (Skulls & Gloves)

Here are a few images of sketches I’ve been doing recently with a lump of oil pastel. I have a skull, several gardening and workmans gloves around the flat, which make convenient objects to draw.
