Back to the Drawing Board........

Here are some sketches that I've been working on over the past couple of weeks. I haven't worked in this way in a long, long time and it was quite disturbing to find out how much I need to re-learn. I'll keep plugging away at it though and hopefully I'll have some more pieces to post soon.


  1. These are amazing Martin. High level of draughtsmanship! Nice contrast between empty spaces and detailed zones. Isn't that a self portrait? (the thinking cap). Can't tell if theses are on paper or digital?

    Look forward to seeing your next posts.

  2. Man shame on me for only seeing these till now. There absolutely Fantastic!
    Re learn?!?! Janey mac! i wish i knew the stuff youve forgotten.
    They really are beautiful pieces of artwork and show you to be a great and talented artist,keep it up. I'll be sure to not let the next ones go unnoticed for so long ;)

  3. Thanks Dave and Tom. I really appreciate the comments and support, especially when it's coming from 2 talented guys like yourselves.

    Dave, these are on paper with Pastel and Pencil. I've been working digitally for so long that I didn't want to try anything too adventurous at first.

    Thanks again guys.

  4. Wow.
    Do you work for Cartoon saloon? Being in Kilkenny?

  5. Hi Oisin.
    Yes, I did work for Cartoon Saloon a few years back, during the production of The Secret of Kells.

  6. Martin, these are absolutely fantastic. (Only discovered your blog this morning. Sorry!) More please!!!!!
