A few pages from my current sketchbook where I have enjoyed cutting up magazines and leaflets, sticking them down and trying to match the colours with gouache paint. Also a little bit of doodling too. I'm not sure where it is going but sometimes it's good to play!

Last week, I took part in the ‘One Week 100 People2018’ hashtag challenge organised by Liz Steel and Marc Taro Holmes. I felt that I’d been neglecting people in my sketchbook drawings for a while and thought it would give me a boost and feel more confident drawing them again.
The pages are laid out below as they appear in my sketchbook, which is an A4 Seawhite of Brighton one containing acid-free 140gsm paper. I mainly used Tikky Graphic and Tombow pens, but watercolour crept in for my bonus day on the Saturday, which I added as I wasn’t able to participate on Thursday.
Well worth doing and great to see how other people took up the challenge. See a whole host of images by looking at the hashtag #oneweek100people2018 on Twitter and Instagram.
