The Wellcome Collection

I ended up at the Wellcome Collection off Euston tube station the other day. I was around the area and saw it was free so I popped in. It was really interesting and I did a lot of drawing, they had a great collection of archeological skeletons so I did some sketches of bones and skulls. They also had a cabinet of old artifical limbs that was really cool, crazy steampunk style stuff (except real). I'll try and get some scans uploaded sharpish.

Photography. Thailand 1

About a year a go I lived in Thailand for about 3 and a half months - a mix of volunteer work, living in a buddhist temple and just general chilling and seeing the sights. As a result I took a lot of photos.

This photo was taken right at the start of my stay and is of chinatown in Bangkok (or Krung Thep if you aren't a farang!).

Observational 3. Tim

Observational sketch of my friend Tim done from a photo I took at a party (he is going for some crisps!). Next to it is my failed attempt at colouring the sketch in photoshop. Thought I'd include it anyway - skin tones really get me just can't get em decent (and don't get me started on the hair...). I'll keep practicing!

Observational 2. Alex playing Piano

A sketch of my friend and flatmate Alex playing the piano - pretty pleased with it (especially as it was drawn from life).
