As there seems to be quite a bit of artistic talent around here, I thought I would start a pencil sketch section .....

oh stanley what a cute photo!! i love it the way it is dont change it in photoshop, i would love to draw it, but i cant say when at the mo as i still have 3 things to do for the tattoo artist and 1 drawing for the art exibition/competition which i really am going to take my time over and do it the best that i can.

the baby pic i picked up today from being framed and im really pleased with the result. my grandad took it all up his road showing all his neighbours!! not too embarrasing then!!! LOL

Grandparents aye,you cant beat 'em...shame,hehehe...

Excellent drawing Conty,the eyes alone should get you a gcse pass,there's lots of detail in eyeballs when you look closely and you've captured them brilliantly...

That's better without the corners, great pic!  Conor, no rush and any time you want to do it let me know how much you want for a commission fee. I'd love to have one of your drawings and I'm prepared to pay for it! (Go steady lad, this is Stanley not Saatchi!)

The worst that can happen? The artist might throw of his disguise and shout "My name's Stanley Challenger Graham and I've come to claim my commissioned drawing!"

Stanley, re the pic of you as a four year old, i can't get over the size of your noggin...obviously had a bigger brain even then!
Conti, re the tattoo art and the competition..prioritise and don'ty let money put pressure on you..always remember if somene has asked you to do something it is becuase they want you to do it..they will wait!

Belle, I've often told the story about me dad getting worried and making mother take me to Tommy O'Connell our GP. He looked at my head and told mother not to worry. "Sure, he'll grow into it Mary!"

thought i quickly update you guys while i got time. my drawing of baby has sold. but i can keep it untill competition is over. and ive also had an offer to buy the calender girl drawing, but i have refused as i need her for my coursework, but the money would of been nice!

the new tattoo job is going well my design is being tattoo'd on a bloke next week, ive asked for photos of it when its done, and ive been paid!!

dad bought home a TV mag tonight and the england school games is listed as on sky sports 2 channel, sat from 2 oclock, got my team kit and its not bad, well it fits!!!

and the 'offical olympic artist' that ive spent the last 2 days with has just finished painting jason gardner and has asked if its ok to paint me!, hes coming with me tomorrow to watch me compete in the school games, think i got a new mate!! haha but hes really kind and has been giving me some great advice with my art and athletics which is dead cool as he knows so much and all the right people

and belle and cathy, thanks for advice its been noted!!! stanley you gotta wait!! haha only joking, i will do it as soon as i can. in fact i still can believe you asked. thankyou
