From the stand at the CRC Speedshow

I joined Dreydon, author of Bruce wants to go faster, at the CRC Speedshow this weekend to sell copies of our book. 

The weekend was a dry run for Dreydon who will be at the Goodwood Revival meeting in September. He'll have a stand selling copies of the book to what we hope will be an enthusiastic public. All I can say is — luck bugger!

Interest was excellent and a good number were sold on the weekend. It was great to meet some interesting people too. Thank you to those who stopped by for a look and a chat, and to those of you who walked past and didn't stop - I hope I managed to sketch you on your way past.

I managed to crank out this sketch in between sales, this time using the end pages of my Fabriano watercolour sketchbook. It's a beige-ish 'laid' stock which means it has a slight ribbed texture, a bit like old fashioned letterhead paper. It was a lot of fun to experiment with some white gouache to help pull some features out of the background creating an interesting sense of depth.
