Further to Saturday’s post of my long necked turtle eating pizza from July’s meetup of the Ace Comics drawing group, here are the rest of my sketches from the day. Some of my koala characters and random people who where at the comic book store to play games for the day. Also I am designing a tree for my August merchandise – stay tuned for more!!
Brisbane Painting & Drawing Meetup Group – March Meet Up at Moora Park
It’s that awesome time of the month again when I join the Brisbane Painting and Drawing Meetup Group for a social and fun arty get together. Last weekend on Sunday we were at Moora Park in Shorncliffe enjoying the fresh air, sounds of the waves hitting the shore, and in some great company.
In the morning I sketched a couple of palm trees, some people, an ibis and a few characters that are rummaging around in the back of my mind.
It’s always greatly inspiring to see the diverse range of creativity amongst everyone else who goes and also to see other parts of Brisbane I have yet been to.
In April, I will be arranging the meetup and it will be meeting at the Maritime Museum on Southbank.

Barbecuing Man Sketch
This is the final sketch from Saturday. I was introduced to sumi ink and using wooden kebab sticks to apply it. I looked around and saw a guy barbecuing and causing a lot of smoke. I though this would present a great way to test the different ends of the sticks from pointed, broken and blunt/flat. This proved a lot of fun, especially making the smoke effect with the broken flared end.
Have you tried sumi ink?
Sketches of Birds and People in Brisbane
The second sketch is a collection of birds and people I saw on Saturday. Starting from the top down we have a magpie, people on jet ski, young girl blowing bubbles, couple sitting down, and an ibis!
Just looking back through my sketchbook and came across this sketch making me look twice… It was a guy on his phone looking down, but on second glance the scribbles that I drew for his hair also look like another face looking up. Weird!
Do you reckon he is looking down or up?
This was on one of our little strolls up Mount Gravatt. As always with my sketchbook in hand, a man came jogging down in the opposite direction and seemed concerned that I was documenting something!!
Well, the answer to his question was ‘him’!
