Lady Godiva



The latest theme in the Eurovision Art Challenge was 'Lady Godiva'. A great theme with lots of fun potential. I came up with a couple of approaches & struggled like heck to make the 'foxhunt' work. I prefer the 'jockey' version but finished it too late to meet the deadline!




These are some of my thumbnails exploring the subject.



Found this sign for a posh chocolatier in Paris, just off la place Vendome.

Man, when you update your blog, you really UPDATE IT!

Your thumbnails are great, I really got a chuckle out of the Paris/Nicole Godiva sisters sketch!

What did you struggle with on the foxhunt? The only thing that looks like it should have been struggling is the horse underneath HER! I thought they both worked really well.

Your life drawing are solid as ever.

Indeed - you turn your back and bam.

Great Amazon wildlife.

Really lovely girlfriend drawing - very, very lovely.

And I was wondering if the fox hunt was yours. It was my second choice.
The racing gag is pretty good though too, and she has a nice arse.

It's been sighted on the radar but I lost track of it in thick fog over Newfoundland. Don't worry, it's coming ... maybe another 2 weeks though. Them zepplins fly slow -
