Burns Night

So Burns is kind of a big deal where I'm from as he lived a good portion of his life here. He did a lot of poetry and womanizing in this fair town. We have a statue of him which is quite popular. We have a statue of his wife which is... not so popular.

January is the darkest month.



Happy Birthday, Edgar Allan Poe!

These two might make an interesting celebrity couple. She wouldn't put up with any of his crap. Whatever happed we'd probably get a hell of an album out of it.

I got a new set of proper drawing pens which are much fancier than I'm used to. Its one handle with several detachable... heads(?). I even have a little pot of ink I have to dip into when drawing. Things are a bit rough whenever I try something new. So why not embrace this fact with a drawing of someone who's a bit rough around the edges: Seasick Steve!
Got his latest album today. Good stuff.

Scottish Caricatures

Hey, maybe I've been feeling patriotic lately or something...






These two seem to prove a little theory I have: if you're scottish you can really pull off quizzical eyebrows and a goatee - even if it is dyed purple.

Caricatures from November. I think I'm getting better. But there's always something I see after I'm finished, perhaps in a more accomplished caricature of the subject, that makes me think 'why didn't I concentrate more on THAT feature?'.

Bill Murray has a very caricaturable (if this wasn't a word it is now. I'm using it 'til I find a better one) face. Very expressionate and distinctly Murrayish (same deal as 'caricaturable'). Not too obvious either. Some caricatures all you have to do for the subject to be recognisable is get one thing right, e.g. distinctive chin or bushy eyebrows. Anyway here is Bill in his Zissou beard phase:




I recieved Tom Waits' latest album, 'Glitter and Doom: Live' through the post today, and it does not disappoint. I urge anyone who isn't familiar with the work of this man to check him out - although this album is perhaps not the best starting point. The roar of the opener, Lucinda, may take the uninitiated by surprise a little. I like to think of that voice as an antidote to X-Factor mania. I wonder if Simon Cowell has ever heard a Waits album.



Oh, and the stars? Well, YOU try to represent glitter in black and white!
