Every now and then I’ll be scrolling through Instagram and I’m suddenly struck by an interesting face or expression. This happened an hour ago when I saw the selfie @mikekviner posted. I knew I just had to sketch it for my own enjoyment. Swipe for the original reference photo.

Apparently it’s Batman Day today. Here’s a repost of a Batman & Robin character illustration I did a few years back. The movie’s something of a guilty pleasure for me.

Inspiration struck this morning and I realised I just HAD to include Mrs Wheeler in my Stranger Things lineup, even though our 1 year old Joe was due to wake up at any moment. I managed a loose first sketch on the back of a utility bill with seconds to spare... 😄

Little timelapse video of me drawing at a student event today, kindly captured by @asiagrabowski. Thanks Asia!

I like these things, I’ll try and do it more in future.

Another few sketches from the “should have done more with these and probably will someday” collection.

Despite how much the Stranger Things cast has grown, here’s a pair who have been there from the very beginning. I seriously considered making Jonathan and Nancy much more badass (wielding surgical scissors and fire extinguisher respectively, in a nod to one of my favourite scenes), but thought the whole rats & fertiliser mystery was more the characters’ main plot over the season. So here they are in mild-mannered journo mode instead.

“HAPPY FOURTH OF JOO-LAAH!!” Pretty busy today, so I’ve only had time to design bodies (well, a body and a lectern) for two Stranger Things characters: one an oily politician, the other a rabid granny with a penchant for fertiliser.

Decided to warm up this morning with a sketch of @johncena. There’s a possibility I’ve laid the greys on a bit thick, but that’s a lesson learned I guess. Swipe to see my process, from basic shapes to finished sketch.

Materials: Faber-Castell coloured pencils, Pitt Graphite, Copic Ciao brush marker, and Letraset Promarkers.

Scrolling through my feed I’m amazed just how many sketches I intended to realise as full colour digital paintings, but never got around to for one reason or another. Here’s a few personal favourites.

Whaaa...??? One of my drawings has just hit 10,000 likes!!! The sketches in question were reposted by actor @theandreyivchenko (AKA Stranger Things 3’s Russian hitman Grigori), who has been hugely supportive of my work for a while now. I really appreciate it Andrey. And of course, massive thanks to all those who took time to Like my work - I couldn’t be more grateful! 😊

Bodies designed for Joyce, Hopper, Will, and Bruce. I was back and forth over whether to reference the “will they/won’t they” Jopper romance, but ultimately decided to keep it simple and go with Joyce’s daft magnet obsession, and Hopper’s transformation into a machine gun-totin’ badass.

More bodies sketched out. Getting there!

EDIT: The more I look at Dustin, the more I think I’ve completely missed the likeness. Gonna rework it.

Progress. In designing Grigori I wanted to capture the slow-mo menace of the fairground scene, but put him in the iconic Terminator-esque denim jacket and fingerless gloves combo we see earlier in the show. I have also changed El’s hair to something a bit more recognisable.

Been mega busy of late, and lots of people have been asking what’s going on with my Stranger Things character project. I’ve finally found time to resume work, and will be designing bodies and refining the characters throughout the week.

First up: Mike. I really wanted to capture the awkward teenage gangliness that Finn Wolfhard has developed between seasons. The stiff pose, long legs and floppy shoelaces help with this.

Sometimes inspiration strikes and you just have to grab whatever’s handy to draw with. Hence this doodle of Daniel Craig, sketched on the back of a mobile phone bill with a pen from a kid’s party bag, whilst leaning on a box of disposable contact lenses.

After my Joker drawing the other day, I’m clearly going through a “chalky-faced bad guy” phase. Therefore I couldn’t resist doing a little sketch from the first photo released of William Sadler as the Grim Reaper (aka the Duke of Spook, the Doc of Shock) in the upcoming Bill and Ted Face the Music. 2020 can’t come soon enough.

EDIT: Dammit, I’ve just remembered William Sadler has blue eyes. They look darker in the set photo. Hey ho.

It’s been a while since I did some honest to goodness caricature sketching, so I sat down this morning and had a go at Jack’s Joker. I’m enjoying the various attempts to deepen the character (Joaquin Phoenix’s take looks great), but let’s face it, sometimes you just want an over-the-top asshole with green hair. Nicholson pulled this off perfectly.

Breaking News! I’ve been given the opportunity to take part in the 5th Annual ‘Montmartre in De Bergen’ festival, which is happening this weekend in Eindhoven, Netherlands.

Myself and over 25 European artists (including my old pal Mike Carlon) will be setting up on the streets of De Bergen to draw FREE caricatures between 12-5pm on Sunday 1st September. There will also be food, drink, live entertainment... it’s supposed to be a brilliant atmosphere, and sounds like great fun.

If you’re in the area feel free to swing by and say hello, and maybe get a caricature (or three) drawn!
