Borrowing From Mr.M
Here's a sketch I did last week. It's heavily influenced by Dave McKean, an artist whose work I love and who I try and whose work I try and follow. And he does a lot of stuff and he keeps trying new things, he seems to reinvent himself every few months.
I recently ordered his book of ink drawings called Squink and it's my favorite collection of his work, I ended up ordering it from France and spending more then I should have but it was really worth it, it's one of the most inspired and inspiring art books I own. You might know Mckean's work from his illustrations in Coraline and The Graveyard Book. He's a frequent collaborator with Neil Gaiman. The odds that too such talents have met and worked together must be astronomical.
This drawing was done with pen and ink,brush and ink, watercolour and photoshop.
