Chai, Liquid Cheeks and Abel Gray at the Hare and Hounds, Birmingham, 13th May 2019

There was lots of energy and dance moves from Chai to try and capture in a single drawing! Liquid Cheeks also had a guest song from Abel Gray in the top right corner.

I’ll be at London MCM Comic Con next weekend! I have music themed comics and zines including some compilations of gig sketches! Hopefully see you there :)

The Beths and Hans Pucket at The Hare & Hounds, Birmingham, 7th May 2019

The Beths and Hans Pucket at The Hare & Hounds, Birmingham, 7th May 2019

New Zealand bands The Beths and Hans Pucket started a tour of the UK last night in Birmingham. The lead guitarist of Hans Pucket had a strange sized guitar, I tried my best to get the scale right.

I’ve got more gigs lined up in May so hopefully there will be more regular gig sketches this month.

Dilly Dally and Hotel Lux at The Hare and Hounds, Birmingham, 29th January 2019

Dilly Dally and Hotel Lux at The Hare and Hounds, Birmingham, 29th January 2019

First gig sketches of the year! I’ve got a couple of gigs scheduled in February->May so watch this space for more drawings.

I was running late and missed sketching Soeur at this gig. They’re great live and you can find sketches from last year here.

Soeur, Yr Poetry and Outlander at The Hare and Hounds, Birmingham, 28th November 2018

Soeur, Yr Poetry and Outlander at The Hare and Hounds, Birmingham, 28th November 2018

The sketch of Yr Poetry is incomplete because I saw them preform in the same room around a month ago and I like that sketch. You can find it here. The microphone shaped like a phone with a jack lead coming out the side is very cool but only used for a few songs and I couldn’t draw fast enough!

For advent I’m going to be posting gig sketches daily over Christmas and New year with links to all the bands. You can follow along starting here.

All Years Leaving @ The Hare & Hounds, Birmingham, 21st October 2018

Dream Wife, Goat Girl, Warmduscher, Snail Mail, Mush and Hungry Ghosts @ All Years Leaving, The Hare & Hounds, Birmingham, 21st October 2018

I missed All Years Leaving on Saturday because I was at Nottingham Comic Con, But I managed to catch a bunch of great bands on the Sunday. I loved finally getting to see Dream Wife perform live.

Thanks to everyone at the convention in Nottingham! I’m busy preparing comics and zines for London MCM Comic Con this weekend. Giant Rhinos In Space has some new sale prices! I’ve updated the Etsy listings to match in case you can’t make it to the show.

A Bull, Yr Poetry, Kermes and Crywank at The Hare & Hounds, Birmingham, 10th October 2018

A Bull (Andy from Sunshine Frisbee Laserbeam), Yr Poetry, Kermes and Crywank at The Hare & Hounds, Birmingham, 10th October 2018

Great line up at the Hare & Hounds on Wednesday night! Yr Poetry had a telephone microphone which I wasn’t quick enough to draw, and Kermes were much more energetic and I regret not trying to capture their front woman with multiple faster guesture drawings. Hopefully I can see them another time!

I headed over to the Hare & Hounds straight from Godiva Festival (gig sketches here) Unfortunately I was running a little late and only managed to see the last couple of Sunshine Frisbee Laserbeam's songs.
