Digitalism Little Tablet

I got a wee tablet a few months agofrom ebay. I didn't know how to use it so I got the most cheap as chips one I could get. It rounded off to about 40 euro in total hich wasn't bad, I thought. I have bee experimenting since and have made a few along my journey of digital artypants. Here's a few I've done so far. Some of these were asked for and others just for some fun and practice.

My First Celebrity Client

I hadn't been paying much attention to Twitter ad rarely used it to promote my artwork aymore. I posted about 2 things a month really. My Mum had bought me a little sketch book so I usually brong it around with me and doodle whereever I can.

I hadbee a fan of Lauren Socha whoplays Kelly from the Misfits since I saw her in 'The Unloved' by Samantha Morton. I also saw her in a short film 'A scummy Man'. Terrific underrated actress. I tweeted a quick sketch I did of her and she loved it so got in contact with me to do a painting off her nephew.
I loved the fact she typed her emails in the way she would normally talk.

Phil Lynott

I decided to do a portrait of Phil Lynott because as I seen the Cairde Festival were doing a auction. I knew a few people involved and also had a few hours to spare. Phil Lynott I felt was an appropriate person to draw for it. Irish Music, Legends, and all that..

A Crazed Lady Pencil Drawing

Young Yeats Sligo hosted 'Yeats Day' to remember the mighty W.B.YEATS on his birthday. There was to be an exhibition in the Yeats Gallery, Sligo on the Friday (13th...DUN DUN DUUUUNN)...So I said I might as well submit something. I made a pencil drawing which I haven't done many of. It was my interpretation of the peom 'A crazed Girl'. I'll be hoest I had never heard of the poem before but drawing faces is my thing and most of the rest of his poems were about lakes and forests so feck that!
I got third prize on the day. The winning piece was of a forest!

A Crazed Girl

THAT crazed girl improvising her music.
Her poetry, dancing upon the shore,

Her soul in division from itself
Climbing, falling She knew not where,
Hiding amid the cargo of a steamship,
Her knee-cap broken, that girl I declare
A beautiful lofty thing, or a thing
Heroically lost, heroically found.

No matter what disaster occurred
She stood in desperate music wound,
Wound, wound, and she made in her triumph
Where the bales and the baskets lay
No common intelligible sound
But sang, "O sea-starved, hungry sea.'
