Unintelligible Scribbles

 The various scribblings of Stephen McNally

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.

Some of them worked really well. Would be worth the foray into some colour too i think. Cheers man -- enjoyed that gallery visit :)
