Sketchcrawl North, did last year. I made it in my large Moleskine - the kind that has an A3 size double page spread. Increasingly, I've found that I really enjoy drawing on a bigger scale. Maybe it's a reaction to all those years of drawing tiny things in tiny books. I don't know. But, this is a biggie for me. Unfortunately, I don't have a scanner that can take this size page which is why it's taken so long to post it.
It's a drawing of a pub in Sheffield, called Fagans (obviously), that has this beautiful, and very British, mural by Sheff's own Pete McKee. I've wanted to draw this for ages and last November I braved the cold and finally did it. Now that I see it on screen I realise that it needs something more. I know exactly what it is it needs, so it may just get a bit more AJ treatment. In fact, it definitely WILL.
So, here's Part One. More to come.

Isn't it interesting how seeing things that seem okay in person on the screen shows all the problems? I wish that I could see mine before they go up, but usually it is after I have posted it for all to see.
Yes, Caroline, I agree. It's totally different seeing things on screen. Maybe it's a bit like seeing them through new eyes? I don't know?
