Milky Bar and Lucía

with 2 comments

Whenever I go back to London, I stay with my friends John and Sarah. Last time I was back, I took a couple of small painted wood owls from a market in Mexico City. Their daughters named the owls Milky Bar and Lucía. Obviously. Here’s a story I did for them about the owls.

Foro Sol

without comments

This, we recently found out, will be the last season that Diablos Rojos will play at Foro Sol. It’s a crappy stadium. It’s ugly and way too big, but, sentimentally, it’s kinda been a second home since I’ve been in Mexico. Next season they’ll play *somewhere* in the city, and there’ll be a brand new stadium in 2016. But for now, it’s nice to take photos and do drawings of the old place.

New Boots and Panties!!

without comments

I started this about a year ago, and added a little more now and again. Finally, it’s finished.

It’s a series of ten drawings: one for each of the songs on Ian Dury and the Blockheads’ wonderful album New Boots and Panties!!

I drew them with the iPad app, Paper, and the idea was to kinda do them like decorative plates, thus the choice of the Willow Pattern-y blue.

Playing around with SketchUp

without comments

In 2008, I downloaded Google SketchUp. I never used it. Then, a couple of weeks ago, I opened it and began playing around. It’s oddly fun to start learning to use something new.
