Another of my favourite things to do…sketching while watching telly. Game of Thrones and The Wire have been on my mind lately although you’d have to have a very good eye to spot where The Wire is in this pic!
I caught the train into the city yesterday (the first time in months) so I drew a little.
One of my favourite things to do is just zone out and draw faces. I sat down for 5 minutes tonight and did this (video’s at double speed).
I had an idea for the Reaper sitting down to watch telly with his next victim…I think it happened because there was some news that came out today about smoking being even more dangerous than previously thought. Please don’t smoke.
“Is that Perfect Strangers?!…Well, I guess this can wait”

The best show ever made has its swan song this week. Here’s to you, Walt.
Continuing on my Game of Thrones theme. First time I’ve done some art for myself in weeks. Feels good. I know there’s plenty to fix here, but I don’t like to ruin a sketch by getting bogged down with silly things like anatomy and reference.
Last year I did some character design work on a production called The Eggsperts, with Flying Bark. Some early pics have surfaced here. It’s interesting to see how he ultimately ended up as a 3d model, with the colour changes and axing of a couple of limbs. I bet the animators were relieved!
Here’s a couple of things I doodled a while back but never posted here, so here you go
Quentin Blake is wonderful. I love watching him draw, his illustrations are so full of energy and life! Please, if you have the inclination, watch this video…
Ah, Spacepug, where will your adventures take you this week?
Whenever possible, I like to make my spacesuits resemble Mork’s.
I had this idea yesterday and it made me smile, so I sketched it up last night. Hopefully I find the time and enthusiasm to finish it. On reflection, I decided it would be much funnier if the dog was of the fluffy poodle or chihuahua variety, so I’ll have to get on to that!
I’ve established my love of pictograms in place of dialogue and I stand by it. It’s just much funnier than reading ”I’m gonna inflict some serious damage on these here foot clan!”.
He’s such a poser. Just look at him with his lipstick, earrings and manicured nails.
Hey look, it’s Hodor and the gang!
Seeing as I have very little to show for all the hard work I’ve been putting in around the artlab, I thought I’d kick off the first instalment of a little something I like to call ‘stuff Garth did ages ago and hasn’t shown anybudy yet!’.
The purpose being to keep this blog ticking over without actually having to get off my butt and finish anything right now. I swear, I have things, they’re just not for show/in various stages of completion.
Anyway, this is a thing I did a couple of years ago for Luke Jurevicius, for a project called Math Seeds. The brief was to create a flash drawn background for a web animated thingamy. The different rooms to this house were the sets for Math related activities and ‘webisodes’. Another illustrator/animator contributed significant chunks to the left hand side (outside) world, which I altered to fit the style of the rest of the set. There are also some small props which came courtesy of Nathan Jurevicius Booyah!

Thought I’d change things up a bit, y’know? Draws a turtle.
