sept 2022

Welcome to September 2022. This month is special because it’s my Fathers and Grandmothers birthday. My Grandmother is the same age as the late Queen. Congrats! I was in Sydney and Melbourne this morning. Didn’t do any artwork, but did attend APIDays Conference. When I returned to NZ I did a bunch of artwork - mostly from redditgetsdrawn. Enjoy ~

A drawing of u/lullabyformycat from redditgetsdrawn. Cool tattoos on the arms.

A drawing of u/thespacecase93 from redditgetsdrawn. I like the suit and baldness. Reminds me of of Agent from Hitman. Or maybe Lex Fridman if he lost his hair..

A drawing of Unknown from redditgetsdrawn. Normally I’m good at writing down the usernames, but missed it on this one! oh well, might go back through history and find / update later. I like the hate and the arm going over the head.

June 2022

Hello and Welcome to artwork of June 2022. This month I did something I have not done in many years - draw from the reddit sketchdaily subreddit.
