Steve Simpsons Jameson Label


Came across Steve Simpson’s Dublin Jameson Brand and it is really inspirational. He shares his many concepts and sketches before getting to his final piece. There also is a video that shows how much Dublin means to him and his process.

Le Consulat- Sketch at work

Le consulat

Lately I have been in the mood to sketch different cafe’s. I think of James Gulliver Hancock and his illustrated buildings in New York. Would be fun to do a large series on different cafes. Now that I made myself a small travel watercolor set from an altoid tin, I try to do a sketch while on lunch break. Since I’m not right in a big city, I have collected images on pinterest that would love to draw and when break comes I decided which one to paint. It is such a great escape and recharges me for the second half of the work day.
