Fred Astaire and some hands

Hey you. So yesterday I was in an animation class (its important to know that apart from doing the draws I'm also a note taker at a University ..tis my day job) class yesterday the lecturer suggested the class draw Fred Astaire dancing. So he put in a dvd and paused the dvd every few frames and got the class to loosely draw each pose...so i did too. They were very quick 5 to 10  second drawings. It was kinda fun....and then later at lunch I drew my hand..because those mothers are hard to draw.

Some back dated drawings

Hello all eight of you. I run about 5 blogs at the same time which means i dont get around to all of them. My main blog is my Tumblr blog. Which has its limitations but its pretty straight forward when It comes to posting images. Anyways here what I failed to post over the last few months, its not in order and there is little or no background explanation.

Ballagh Road

 I went back to Ireland for a month this summer. It rained everyday and my cat was killed by a car. Pretty depressing really. Among all this greyness and sadness I noticed that a pet dieing was very much a ritual in my family (as I'm sure it is most family's)and that we always went through the same motions, searching, finding and burying. Mum , Dad and myself would desperately search, Dad would always find the animal dead, Dad would always bury the animal..alone. I tried to document the whole process in 3 ink drawings.The long picture with the most rain is my dad telling me he had found the cat and he was dead. Although they seem depressing these images made me feel better, i had managed to document something that had always happened and had always been relatively quickly forgotten. The cat's name was Francy. He was a bit of a dick...as most cats are.
