Crotchshank...

Back From Sweden, with a lot of sketches I've done in Stockholm and in the countryside, almost a full sketchbook! I'll post them soon, I have to scan them and put them together nicely. So in the meantime, here is a sketch I've done , just before I left, of Matt "Crookie" during a very exciting meeting.

The lower half of ones friends is perhaps more exciting than Sweden anyway.
I guess it depends on the friend...

Stef said...

...or which part of Sweden. Sweden was very exciting for me Elliot...I got engaged!

Elliot said...

I have sent you a congratulatory email!

the doodlers said...

Congratulations on the engagement, Stef!!

We're excited and we don't even know you!!

This sketch feels like an older 'letratone' piece. I used to love to use that stuff- peel it off and stick it down all crooked... actually it was a pain.

Cheers!

Alina Chau said...

beautiful color, really love this style you have been using lately!!

Oscar Grillo said...

Congrats on your engagement, Steph...Did you tell Alina already?

Stef said...

Thank you very much Elliot! we'll have drink soon in London to celebrate my engagment and your house been sold.

Thanks Doodlers! very kind of you.
I'm using a lot of halftone patterns at the moment on my sketches, trying different things.

Thank you very much Oscar! I was expecting the best congratulations ever from Alina as she's very good at it normally...
Your last post are superb!

Matt J said...

CONGRATULATIONS STEF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Does this mean we'll see you even less now?! You'll have to geta sidecar for your scooter.
Looking forwards to the the Sweden sketches - hope it's not an entire book full of Volvo sketches.
(Isn't 'volvo' Swedish for vagina?)

Nice sketch of Crookie's crotch - makes me feel at home.

Matthew...I am afraid you'll have to look for a boyfriend somewhere else...I suppose you already know that Elliot is coming to London soon...And he thinks you're cute!

Elliot said...

I told you not to say anything about how I felt until I got there, Grillo.

Stef said...

- Thank you very much Matt! no, you'll see me more now, I don't want her to get bored with me so I'll have to go out on my own more. Sidecar for the scooter is a good idea for the kiddies!
As for my sketches from Sweden, nope it's not just Volvo cars, I'll ask my Fiancee for the meaning of Volvo, not sure you've got it right.

- Elliot said I was cute too, I'm confused now. We'll have to talk over some Limoncello soon.

Smook said...

You already know that I think your work is amazing, so I won't comment on it; but I will say CONGRATULATIONS and welcome to the club. All the best, Stef!

I guess you won't be hiring a photographer to photograph your wedding because you'll probably fill a whole sketchbook on the event!

Matt J said...

KIDDIES????!!!!! Slow down tiger.
You French guys . . .

Once you're married Tina she will finally let you touch her Volvo!Those 3 year 'probationary periods' that the Swedes insist on are way too strict. Fill yer boots!

Your twelve children will have many uncles who will draw with them.

Elliot said...

You are cute Stef, but not as cute as Matthew.

Stef said...

Wait 'til you see me.

Elliot said...

HA!

Matt J said...

Stef looks better than me in sandals.

Stef said...

Let's Elliot choose by himself when he'll meet us.

Virginia Valle said...

Stef,welcome back, I love the new sketch and I think the new style is working,love the new details in the shadows,look very beautiful.
Congrant with your engaged and welcome to the club too ;)!.
Take care!!

Elliot said...

I'll have one of each thanks...

Stef said...

-Thanks Virginia!
_Ah non Elliot, you'll have to make up your mind, Matt is younger than me and very wealthy!

Matt J said...

Let's settle this in an Ebay auction.

Alan MacEachern said...

nice! in the tube is great with the combination of texture and paint.

the friendly banter in this comments page is also pretty funny!

Elliot said...

I think I will auction myself off and let you two bid for the lovin'.

Stef said...

Thanks Alan.

- I think Elliot said he would wear a dress for our first "date" as well as his beautiful hairdo he showed us on his blog a while ago.

Elliot said...

I will be the prettiest ballerina princess at the ball.

the doodlers said...

Tee hee. What cute, gleeful talk!

alice said...

Matthew Cruickshank said...

You should be doing advertising posters for Puma.
