Mermaid eye charcoal drawing - note the lack of eyelashes and protective membrane :) Part of an ongoing project to rework mythical creatures in a way that works. #mermaid #drawing

Another drawing video - one of my crows this time :)

An interesting mix of illustration, photography and written storytelling - one of my monsters has his own section on my website. There's his file, giving clues to his origins, and his suitcase containing his favourite treasures. Go take a peek :) https://www.drawingindark.co.uk/stephens-corner

I like to work with the things that are around me - living on the coast I get to share my town with the endlessly engaging cormorants :) This is one of a pair worked in charcoal pencil. #wildlife #drawing

Something a bit different to my last post :) One of the most fiddly subjects I've ever tackled - a hermit crab I encountered when I lived in Cornwall. #drawing #sealife

Not the beautifully polished work I'm seeing in this group lol but as the bit of daft stop motion I did for a project has brought me someone who wants to collaborate on a series of short films, I will be upping my game rather sharpish :) This was deliberately wibbly, done with just the models that inhabit my desk to show what it's like working with monsters.

A bit mysified as to why I've still got this one lol. One of three charcoal drawings done for a homewares company - the other two ( figs and pomegranate) went to a collector years ago. A much lower price than usual as I'd made some money off it already yet remains my most admired but determinedly unsold work :) Any thoughts ? #still life #drawing

Project video for a book project with author Sean Walter, featuring some of my work and a bit of daft animation done with my desk models :) Thought it appropriate for a Friday the 13th post. #horror #stopmotion
