A belated MLK day drawing.

So I’ve been to Washington several times, and stood where he stood giving his famous speech. It’s only fitting that there is, in the US, finally a day to celebrate the life of the man who truly believed all men were created equal.

I give you my tribute to Dr Martin Luther King Jnr.


Ancient medieval bargate with a gruesome history

So I woke early this morning and did a quick doodle in pen and pencil of my city, Southampton’s. medieval, grade I list building, which was once the main entrance to the city….or the old walls as they are now called. Either way, as happens and is called progress, Southampton has expanded incredibly since it’s time of construction, taking in the former leper colony outside the gates and now classed as the city’s civic centre, the Marylands and then the Marlands, in which stands a 1920’s guildhall, former police station and clock tower which all replace the Bargate for usage.

Anyhow, I just fancied drawing it in a mixed media way with both pen and pencil so here it is:
