Jerry Filming John, Tienmu, Ink on Brown Paper,27 x 19.5 cm, 1:6:17 by David Lloyd

Ink on Brown Paper, 27 x 19.5 cm, 1/6/17

This is an Ink sketch of two good old friends of mine John and Jerry, it was done during a day of street skating in Tienmu, Taiwan. It was drawn from life near the end of the day when my legs had said “enough skating” and they were filming a line of tricks, hence the extra arm on John during his trick! He was doing a trick called a Nollie Backside Tailslide on the ledge and I tried to draw him in action, which was very difficult because of the ever changing body shape and position of each attempt he had. It is always a challenge to try to capture someone in motion and this was possibly the most difficult challenge I’ve had as the trick and motion was over in a matter of seconds. A lot of fun though!
