Art Challenges

The Great British Bake Off 2019

My partner enjoys baking and watching the Great British Bake Off (GBBO) and as such I end up eating cake (she bakes some AMAZING gluten free cakes!) and watching such baking shows with her. One year I wanted to set myself an Art Challenge so I decided to draw each contestant who was left each week and below are the illustrations I did (yes I’m missing some but it was during some paid work and I am planning to finish the rest).


Started by American artist Jake Parker, Inktober is a challenge taken up by many artists to do an inked drawing every day during the month of October.

Below are my Inktober drawings. Follow me on Facebook and Instagram to see daily updates. SOME years I’ve managed it to the end where as other years I’ve had commissioned work come in and have had to stop Inktober to prioritise work.

Inktober 2016

This year was ended prematurely due to my commissioned work taking over my life at the time and my girlfriend and I adopting 2 kittens who pooped everywhere and find the sound of drawing fascinating and pens irresistible. Below are a few drawing I managed to do.
