Jeremy Clarkson

Who's been a naughty boy then? Hey Jezza, why the long face? Is it because you've just been sacked.....?

Here's a new caricature sketch I did the other day of the now 'ex-Top Gear' presenter... (and opinionated baggy-faced eejit), Jeremy Clarkson. Sunday nights will never be the same again....and on that bombshell...

Louis Spence Sketch

Here's a doodle I did this morning in my sketchbook of the ever flexible Louis Spence. Louis is currently starring on stage as Carmen Ghia in 'The Producers' in Edinburgh this week. He plays a very camp and flamboyant dancer...a very challenging role for him then, eh? Hope you like it : )

Westway Park Dock Launch Event in Renfrew

Thanks to Fiona for sending me this pic of me caricaturing our Scottish Government Transport Minister (and MSP for Renfrewshire) Derek Mackay; at the launch event last week where he proudly opened Glasgow's newest dock at Westway Park Dock in Renfrew.

Hopefully a sign that Scotland's economy is indeed on the up! Derek was kind enough to also tweet his caricature to his followers and told me how much he liked it...which was nice to hear. My best wishes to all the hard working Dockers at Westway...it was great to meet and draw for you. Thanks for having me! : )

Gogglebox Sketch

I don't really watch much telly, it has to be said....but I don't mind a bit of 'Gogglebox' on a Friday night! I'm sure I'm not alone? Every time I see the big 'mouth breathing' Dad from the 'Shouty-family' (sorry, I don't know anyone's names) I always think to myself what a great face for a caricature the man has. Anyway, today I found a photo of him in a magazine where he was snoozing on his sofa so I was inspired to do this rough little doodle in my sketchbook. Hope ya like it! : )
