London Trip.

Last week I went on a drawing trip to London with NUCA.  I spent the afternoon visiting the V&A museum and The Natural History Museum.  There was just so much to see and so little time to fit it all in but it was a fun day and it felt brilliant sketching again after slaving away at the dissertation.  Here are a few pages from my sketchbook from the day.

Initial research for my James and the Giant Peach project.  Unfortunately we could only find a real spider and centipede out of the characters.

After searching everywhere for certain bugs I decided to just sketch animals that caught my attention.  These are quick line drawings where you don't take the pen off the page.

More quick sketches, I particularly love the cheery sloth.

In the V&A I discovered this drawer and it was filled with beautiful name tags for bottles.  I love all the different typography going on.  These are just a few of my favourites.

The V&A is filled with patterns be it from textiles or china, this was one of my favourites.

There we were, sat outside eating lunch when I commented on the lack of pigeons.  Literally 2 seconds later a hoard of them flocked upon us and our tasty treats.  Should have kept my mouth shut.  We originally named this feathery friend, Dave the Fat Pigeon and he likes reverse psychology :)
