Illustration Friday - STRENGTH

This is a collage of a typical ‘strongman’ in a carnival. Like my last collage, it is cut out of guardian newspapers and colour supplements. I’m really pleased with the way it looks and I particularly like the golden face on the seal’s ball.

Also I am pleased to announce that today the winner was announced for the lord mayor of St. Albans’ Christmas card, and it was me! It was really great to have so many people congratulating me and the £50 cheque just sweetened the deal. As a poor schoolboy desperately in need of money so I can spend loads of money on my busy social life and Christmas presents for friends, I am willing to be commissioned to design Christmas cards for the same amount! For just £50, you can have your own personalised Christmas card, and I can even organise printing and delivery to your home (my mother is a graphic designer), or just email you the artwork.

Be the envy of all your friends with a custom card from ArtBlog Tom!

This is a slightly out of proportion drawing of the Oriana, a P&O cruise ship we stayed on for the weekend, on a trip to Zeebrugge. We had loads of fun, my mother instantly dashed to the cybercafe where she couldn't resist blogging in the middle of the sea.

Illustration Friday - NIGHT

This was a chalk crayon drawing done on a saturday morning whilst wondering whether I had packed everyting I needed for our weekend trip to Bruges. We had lots of fun and I returned to see a letter saying my christmas card entry had been put into a shortlist of 11 drawings from an entry of 300. We'll find out in a week if I win.
