It took me a while, but I finally moved CHOBLE.
To commemorate the new home and look of CHOBLE I created a shiny new header image. I darkened the final header image a bit, though the original can be seen above. The header was created with acrylic, gouache and Sakura pens and is 71/2″ x 2″.
I decided to paint the header as I have always been inspired by Ron Russell’s gorgeous blog header that has a wonderful hand-drawn quality to it. To view Ron’s blog header and his excellent artwork go to ronji.blogspot.com.
The figure to the left, in the new header, is CHOBLE (I think). He was derived from the sketchbook drawing seen below.
Also, I still haven’t properly finished the move over from blogger so this site will continue to be updated (and I’ll add links!)
Damn Giles…thank you for the compliment!
I have to say, within the past month or so, your work has made leaps and bounds! C’mon…you’ve been working your ass off, haven’t you?
I can’t wait to see what lies ahead,
Thank you ever so much for that kind and very encouraging comment! I don’t think I could have had a better first comment on my new blog :)
And yes, I’m excited about my future and art work too. Recently something with my art work seems to have ‘clicked.Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ The encouragement I have received from other artists/bloggers, such as yourself, has helped me a lot too.
Great site, Giles! You give wannabe artists like me inspiration — I have not yet had the courage to put anything I have drawn online. I love reading your blog. Glad to hear it\’s taking off!
Ah ha found you. Not time for a good look yet but got you bookmarked here now. Keep it coming!
Doug — thank you ever so much. That’s really kind of you to say. You should post some drawings on your site…really.
modroom — glad you found my new site. And thanks too for your continued support.
I stumbled upon your site after googling you. Great site!! What are you up to besides hard work? Drop me a line.
