Years ago I took a photo of a run down area of Blyth. This area has since been demolished and recently I had the idea of transforming my photo into my bendy buildings style. I used my six for a pound (£) coloured pencils from WH Smith and my Rotring Isograph pen .. oh, and I tinted parts of the picture with watercolour pencils before starting.

I am a retired man who enjoys expressing himself in pencils and paints. I have had two solo exhibitions in my home town and I love Redbubble. I get as much pleasure from viewing the works of other artists as from creating my own.

    Do you get a lot of earthquakes in Blyth Dave? But seriously, this is typical of of some of the older parts around here. And your Smith pencils are working well.

  • Three years on and my Smiths pencils are still in use :)

    I like your use of color (or colour as you say) too. And how you make your buildings wavy. I have done this myself in my work. Keep up the good work!
