I’ve been drawing the human figure for many years and recommend it as a mental exercise for artists. I even did some modelling myself at one stage. My preferred medium is pastel on canson paper.Here’s a few samples.
On November 16th and 17th 2012 the Australian Cartoonist Association had its annual Stanley Awards get together, this time in my home town of Newcastle. I was asked to provide the colour cover for the brochure and I portrayed Sam Viviano, art director for Mad magazine, and Alex Stitt of ‘Life, be in it’ fame.
We had an exhibition of cartoons on the Friday night followed by the dinner and award presentation on the Saturday night.
