Update (lino cut)

Since school began, I have been incredibly busy, with school, travelling to and from school by bus, football, homeworks, work in the local newspaper... you name it!

This week saw me reunited with lino cut, a technique I haven't done since first year of art school (2005/2006), and the result was a rather cartoony lino cut of Formula 1 driver Ayrton Senna:

Nothing complicated, as you can see. So I felt to make it up with lino cut this time, where all the students carve themselves in the lino board (?) and then make prints. Here's one of my twelve prints that I've made 'til now.

Clint Eastwood (man with no name)

(sorry for crappy photo)

I've drawn Clint Eastwood's face god knows how many times, and decided to finally paint again, about one and a half years after I last painted at all (and that was watercolours!)

Bear with me, I suck at painting, but with enough patience and will, I would try everything to succeed. So I tried it out. This is by the way the first time I've ever attempted to paint a caricature rather than drawing it!
So, paintingwise - I'm satisfied with my efforts despite the huge lack of skills with the brush
Caricaturewise - Could always be better, but I'm satisfied. All in all.

Klaas Jan Huntelaar

This is the first sketch of Klaas Jan Huntelaar. Didn't quite get his eyes, and I think the whole shape of the face could have been much better. In fact, he looks a bit more like Martin Skrtel when he had hair!

On the second attempt I managed to correct some of the things I spotted from the first one. I'm not sure if it's just me, but I think the lips got too big and his face looks too much of a monkey.

The story behind this one is that I've been doing the fanciest acrobatic finishing moves for the goal for the past three times I've played football with my friends, but every time the ball has gone everywhere from in the post to 20 centimetres outside at the most, which obviously has left me with big frustration.

I think I've never actually drawn a single comic strip with no words in it (except the sound of the ball hitting the post).
Not a technically good drawing, nothing fancy nor original, just the frustration needed to be done on paper, that's all.

Due to the lack of time compromised by work and seeing people before the autumn gets here, I'll post an old drawing. This is of my friend Synnøve. Considering the small amount of time spent on this one, I'm pretty happy. Everything went spot on on the first try.

A funny story is that Synnøve and I walked around in town just hanging around, when we met upon another friend of mine who wasn't familiar to Synnøve. I introduced them and we stood there talking for a while, before that friend looked at Synnøve's face carefully and recognised her face from this drawing, which he had seen me posting on Facebook.

I laughed as we stood there, because I thought that was really cool!
