Every day, I like to do a little bit of doodling in my sketchbook… Inspiration however is always an issue. Nothing is more intimidating than a blank page!
For ideas on things to draw, I looked to the app Sketch-a-Day. Sketch a Day updates daily with a new word for the community to interpret. Members attack the word in different ways and with varied mediums. Having the restriction of a single word leads to some creative thinking. I tend to try and do pretty much the opposite of my first thought.

My doodles can be viewed on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter…. along with my the other rambling ideas.
I recently went to see the sequel to one of my all time favourite films, Trainspotting. Not as good as the original but it’s still worth a watch.
Trainspotting was based on the novel by the amazing Scottish author, Irvine Welsh. When I read Trainspotting way back in 1995 I was instantly a fan of his style. I honestly thought a movie could not do justice to the book. Fortunately it was directed by arguably the best director of recent years, Danny Boyle. The movie… and it’s sound track are still iconic over 20 years later (Damn, that makes me feel old).
I could have chosen so many amazing songs from the soundtrack as a tribute… but in the end it just had to be Born Slippy by Underworld. One of the greatest, booming dance tracks ever.
