A few of us at the studio had our first "drawing lunch" on Friday. I was slightly self-concious as we were all drawing random passers-by together, but this it was a very pleasnat experience and hey, any excuse to do a bit of drawing.
My results were mixed - but I got one or two presentable sketches (presented here) out of it. Thanks to James, as the driving force behind the newly formed "Immediate Drawing Club"!

Here a couple of phots I took on a recent trip to the Design Museum in London. They're of the Mariscal exhibit.
Mariscal is a famous Spanish furniture/magazine cover/font/everything designer - he's most high profile stuff is probably the logo guy for Barcelona Olympics 92 -he's also recently done some logo stuff for Framestore in London.
His mantra, that adorned the exhibit was "Don't think, do things!" Can't argue with that!

Finally got my hands on a DVD copy of the brilliant Cartoon Saloon's 2D drawn feature The Secret of Kells. It's an excellent piece of work - with particularly outstanding art direction, design on, of course, animation. Well done to Tomm and everyone involved!
Over the summer, one of the lovely animators at ABD organised a six life drawing sessions for us off her own back (thanks Karen). They proved to be lots of fun and I even managed to get one or two decent drawings out of them! We did plenty of one and two minute poses. Here are a couple examples (most of these are short poses)
