This Ink drawing was done just after the previous one and is of my old Taiwanese friend Jerry filming another good old friend called John Richardson. This picture was drawn while Jerry was stationery for a few moments as he prepared to follow John with the camera. It was easier to capture the filmer than the the skater as the movement was less for the most part!

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!

This Ink drawing was done during a short break on a beautiful hike with my wife in Tongariro National Park, New Zealand. It was a hot, clear and sunny day and after hiking and sitting in the sun for 40 minutes drawing this I had heatstroke! Again! I never learn! It is a quick sketch and hopefully you can make out the waterfall in the centre of the picture surrounded by the dark shadowy rocks.
