Happy New Year from Malta!

Just after Christmas, I had the good fortune to fly to Malta for a week and bring in 2019 in style.  My friend and I stayed at a hotel not far from St George’s Bay, certainly fancier accommodation than I am used to.  Lucky for me my friend is a regular patron of the hotel …

Top Nine 2018

Its that time of year where Instagram is alight with people’s ‘top nine’ – so using the Top Nine app I generated the pictures I shared in 2018 that gained the most likes. They were the ones I had in mind that would come out on top.  Funnily, pretty much the only two pictures I have …

Sketching Cologne Cathedral

Cologne, Germany – Sketching, Beer and Progressive Metal

On Thursday 4th October my band Sümer played a show at the Camden Underworld in London, supporting an amazing French band called Lazuli.  We had to leave straight away to get home around midnight and in time to have a little bit of sleep before waking up at 3:45am to pack the van and set off …

The Shoreditch Sketcher’s Workshop

The Shoreditch Sketcher a.k.a Phil Dean held a sketching workshop in September, I couldn’t resist in attending as I am a big fan of his illustration style. I rocked up to Black and White, 74 Rivington Street, Shoreditch on a chilly September Saturday morning, praying the rain would hold off as obviously this was to …

Southbank House

Old Doulton Factory – Lambeth, London, UK

  I received a little local walking tour from a friend who lives in Kennington. There are so many beautiful buildings in this area. I feel like I could spend the next year sketching buildings in Lambeth. Strolling down Black Prince Road, this building particularly struck me as it’s so ornate and over the top, …

Kashan Iran

Kashan, Iran

The next stop after Tehran was a small city called Kashan.  It was evening when we arrived so we went straight to Negin Hotel, converted from a traditional house.  It’s beautiful, the dining area in particular with a fountain in the middle, and decorations around the edge.  It really did impress me, and I loved …

Drawing in Tehran

Tehran, Iran

We went to explore Tehran after I had got roughly 2-3 hours to rest having been awake for over 24 hours. No sleep for me on the two flights I took – especially not after my heart nearly exploded running from one end of Istanbul airport to the other to desperately attempt to catch my connecting flight to …
