On one hand I am beginning to realise that I am perhaps overusing my Moleskine.. On the other, it's so damn portable, I've found myself drawing almost everywhere.

Having just returned from a weekend in Warsaw, I'd like to post up the stuff I got on with at the weekend.

'Ah! I've Been Expecting You' is a doodle I started on Thursday in front of the box in London Town. It was a mouse, then a rat and now it looks like some kind of amalgamation of the two with a bit of Cyril Sneer from 'The Racoons' vaguely chucked in the mix. The text came in after a joke with my brother.

'Hello! (Revised)' is actually just the finished version of last weeks post as I decided my ladybird was missing a friend!

The final piece, 'Wedding Orchids' was started yesterday afternoon before I left Warsaw. The majority of it was done on the flight home and on the Heathrow Express, and finished before my head hit the pillow. My brother bet I couldn't finish it before I got home, and ok, he might have won, but I was close! I had one cm to go of the background when I got through the front door. Bit of sibling rivalry, bit of motivation!

Doodling on the Tube

Full page doodles I've been working on, both in front of a nice bit of rahhhbish on the box and on the tube en route somewhere.

'Ello London Town II

Two posts in one day. How extravagant of me. Wanted to upload Red Tiger. He's the second in a series of animal portraits I've been doing, the first being 'Woo(l)f', see below.

That's it for now folks.

'Ello London Town

So after a week of frantically packing up my life for the 6th in the last year, as well as finishing off illustration projects and tying up loose ends in Leeds, I'm finally moved back in down south.

Despite the hectic week, I still managed to churn out some stuff.

Above is the doodle embodiment of a lazy Sunday afternoon. I call it '2 cups of tea and an Eastenders Omnibus'.

Below are some boards I Posca'd for Moorish in Leeds. The photo quality may leave a little to be desired, but you get the idea.

Cha-na-na! End of Jan You Array!

'Ello 'ello.

Never managed to upload anything last week, but that doesn not mean that I have not been hard at it..

The past week has included doing a couple of love-sketches (sketches done solely for the love of drawing, without any really purpose-YET). Uploaded one above, see: "Woo(l)f".

Have finally sorted out a bit of a NM (NeltonMandelton) logo-ey thingy-ma-bob. Check it out below. It graces my Twitter page. Next stop, work on a background to replace the Ziganovs! They've had their day.

I have been doing some artwork for Moroccan/North African restuarant 'Moorish' in Hyde Park, Leeds. They're pretty chuffed as they has just been featured in this months Jamie Oliver's magazine 'Jamie'. Here's a poster I did for them to advertise that brilliant achievement!

Other artwork can be seen below. Hare's a link to the restaurant website if a bit of Moroccan cuisine tickles your tastebuds!

The below are to feature on the new, more affordable drinks, food and desert menus:

It's been pretty hectic, ballancing this on top of my job as a business reviewer.. Happen to also be moving to London at the end of the week. So next upload might be my last from my residence in Leeds. That is, if I have any time at all.

It's going to be a busy, busy week tying up loose ends. Wish me luck....
