I missed yesterday’s sketch because I was at a gig in Newcastle-under-Lyme. Swoon, how exotic. I went to see the incredibly talented Graham Coxon. It was one of those gigs that you know will stay with you a long time. Coxon is moving, evocative, at ease, awkward, brave, nervous, challenging, innovative and most of all mesmerising. His guitar playing leaves me speechless. Such a huge talent.
Anyway, after all that build up, here’s my average sketch of the great man in action.
This is Staedtler pigment liner straight onto paper – that’s fibre-tip pen to you and me. It’s not too bad considering – guitars are always a bastard to draw. There’s lots wrong with this, shush, but I think the hair’s okay.
