Richard got it in his head recently to buy a Tom Delonge signature Fender - seeing as they are pretty hard to come by we decided to build our own version! We started with a Squier strat from gumtree:
Rich bought additional parts from the web - a pearloid scratchplate, new chrome volume knob, ernie ball strings and a new pickup.
We stripped the guitar down and sanded it back to its primer coat, covering most things in the house in a layer of pink dust in the process!
After a few coats of surf green nitrocellulose paint:
Electronics in this were pretty simple - just one volume pot and a single Seymour Duncan Invader in the bridge position. Easiest soldering job I've done so far! Sounds pretty good too!

I decided to make a Boba Fett lid for my good bud Andrew a couple of months ago, but sadly didn't have time to finish it for Christmas. Completed it a few days ago, hopefully he will forgive me! It was made from cardboard using a template readily available online, and then covered with filler and spray painted. I might put up some work in progress pics to show how it developed.
I also made a little LED circuit for the rangefinder.

Once again, I neglect my blog for months on end and then come back to it. Just to prove I am still alive, here is the first in a potential series of lino cuts:
I want to do a series of lino cuts based on wild animals. I'll post more as it comes together. I've also been working feverishly on some t-shirt designs so hopefully more info (and piccys!) will come soon. I fully intend to stop neglecting this blog! Honest!

I have neglected my digital drawing for the past few weeks, it's surprising how quickly you fall out of the routine. Here is my sketch for today - I'm looking to do more film poster ideas as well as some book illos hopefully. I intend to update my website soon too!!

Today I decided to focus on eyes...might actually focus on eyes for the next few days! I want to practice drawing eyes from various angles, I tend to struggle with eyes and mouths when it comes to portraits. Thinking if I focus on the different elements I can pull it all together later.

I really wasn't in the mood to draw today after a tiring day at work, but I persevered! Started by doing some 60 second figure sketched on posemaniacs.com - pretty hand to get going. I really want to improve my figure drawing, so might look to do more of these.
also really, really want to improve my portrait skills. I think I tend to try to dive straight into details when I haven't properly filled out the proportions etc. Will have to try and knuckle down!
