Very first ideas for the Roger Frames cartoon character and page masthead scribbled in a reporter's lined notepad.
Top scribble looks like a spiv!
Commissioned by Commodore Format (Future Publishing) in 1990. See lots more of Roger Frames here.

Doodles inspired by Dave Cooper's 'Porcelain Girls' (painting and preliminary drawing), 'pip and norton' (strip cartoon).
(A5 sketchbook. Pencil and watercolour.)
I am simultaneously entranced / horrified by Dave Cooper's art.
On reflection, that double edge applies to many of my artistic and musical interests.
Just a quick shortlist. There are many more.

Sketch of customer in Gollem Bar, Amsterdam. Plus note of beers sampled.
Crazy traditional design of glass for Pauwel Kwak Tap, which needs a wooden brace to keep it upright.
Another customer in Gollem Bar, Amsterdam.
Sketch of guy from Memphis. Sitting at beer table during the Heineken brewery tour. Stereotypical American: loud, opinionated, egotistic. Why did nobody tell him?
People in the Zuiderzee Museum Restaurant, Enkhuizen, Netherlands.
Brillen - Nederlands word for spectacles.
The museum's window featured these strange sculptural display stands.

While investigating what I could do with a new box of watercolours, this image emerged. In a week dominated by the revolt and strife in Libya it seems to have been influenced by those events.
