Mary's moleskine

Sorry for the delay! Here's my set in Mary's which I'll post off tomorrow morning.
The Conchords' Jemain was inspired by Ammon's drawing also in Mary's book. I know it's been a while because I've forgotten how to get the best scans.

self portrait by kind request (HB pencil)

james lovelock (HB & polychromos pencils)

flight of the conchords II (micron pen)
i love you, porgy (micron pen & watercolour pencil)

radio fleas (micron pens & polychromos)

That's a great self-portrait - is he your ego sitting on your shoulder?

ian russell said...

no, that's my conscience, John. the ego is the bloke on the left. ;o)

Mary suggested a self-portrait and I picked the worst photo I could find on my laptop. oddly, the worst photos make some of the best subjects for drawings. I might have used a mirror but I couldn't hold that pose for laughing!
