From Poppy Cat to Poppy Cafe

At the weekend I frequented this lovely cafe called Poppy Cafe. The owners got to know me...ish, as the artist hehe. It was a good way to talk to people as they´d start conversations after seeing me drawing them. I had a good time and got to sharpen my skills and home my style.

I stopped going after a while as we had over time at work and I got tired out with that and other personal projects at home. That plus being a lazy bas....person.

I decided to draw the tables since they were interesting, like 1950s diners. And yes before you ask, I did see a dinosaur, he was enjoying his cup of tea and fry up :).This man was a talkative guy and bought me some tea which was very nice of him. While sketching him he asked if I could add to his hair on top as he could do with the extra. Do you think I went too far? :P
Randoms drinking, putting on jackets and crouching over a walking cane.

On the bus

When I got offered a job in Devon working on the TV series poppy cat I had to wake up early and grab a bus to Hontion each morning. Here are some pages from my handly little sketchbook of some of the people I would travel with.

Most people were normal, but sometime i´d get strange people to travel with. Once a hippy couple brought their travle sick dogs on that vomited eveywhere. It smelt lovely that day on the bus, gagging for air for 25 minutes hehe. never had I been so happy to get to work.

This guy liked red, his phone was red, his colour matching tracksuite was all red and his bag was red. Is it a statement or a try at fashion?
The guy on the left had an awesome comb over, I just had to draw it, heehee, am I evil? 0_0

This guy looked a little like my dad when he had a moustache. Dad denies tthis claim.I sadly didn´t actually see batman on my many bus journies :(

Hello Everyone (or anyone hehe).

This is a blog that I´m finally getting around to uploading, featuring my sketchbook work of places I go and people I see and my experiences among other small things.
I will also be uploading any of my personal projects to this blog for people to follow the progress of. I hope you enjoy :)

Ciao for now
