Unintelligible Scribbles

 The various scribblings of Stephen McNally


This man's posture was loosely based on the way I remember Jacques drawing, (that is, it mightn't be anything like the way Jacques draws, but it's my hazy impression).

Old Gent and Rotund Man

Just a quick post, and a quick sketch from my brain. He started off looking curious, but ended up with a beatific smugness that I quite like.

There's something not really working with this lad though.

Bus Scribbles

I started this because my bike was in the shop and I had to take the bus. So drawing people on the bus, I found they were looking a bit too awkward. To get away from that I started with random scribbles (mainly made by the bouncing of the bus), then made them into the faces of the grotesques that linger on Dublin buses. Most of the expression is based on the initial, uncontrolled scribble. The scribbles give a nice contrast of sizes and some odd shapes and angles I mightn't normally come up with.

so, unintelligible scribbles.
