John Purcell Paper A5(ish) sketchbook number 3, begun 25th July 2001



I think this spread comes from a time when I was vaguely talking with the great Ian Carney about the possibility of working with him, It never came to him, mostly due to lack of action on my part, but there's probably the odd attempt at a character drawing to come in the next few posts, mixed in among the usual detritus. I think Ian had some idea about a down at heel, semi-retired magician in a seaside town.

Or something.

I have the worst memory.

V poor, really. But I put this stuff out warts and all so no hiding.

Oh, and really rather a poor spread to end the year with. (And a day late posting it too. Oh dear).

Ooh, quite a bit that embarrasses me here, in various different ways, but I'm not allowed to edit out poor taste or poor drawing so...

compare and contrast 



Just thought I'd contrast the old sketchbook spread from the previous post with this page from the start of a little A6 Seawhite number. A mix of made up stuff and a few people drawn on the train to and from smelly London on Tuesday.



Curious clickers will be rewarded with significantly increased dimensions.

Oops, couple of days late, partly because I spent Tuesday signing some books in smelly London.

Three spreads this week. If you seek out the best bits in each one then there's just about a page's worth of passable drawings. Maybe.
