Bob's Dental Polygons

I had done some very quick sketches of Bob for my portrait, then i took the idiosyncrasies of the quick sketches and made some Round Bobs. His face is hexagonal or something. I always reckoned Bob's dad has octagonal eyes. These men are constructed of many sided regular polygons.





I drew Bob from life while he was watching Mythbusters or some old man programme. No! Actually it was a repeat of Small Talk with Ronnie Corbett.




Here's Bob being willowy with a more protuberent schnozz.





Bob likes colour coordinating his bike shoes with his bikes. (A cat trod on this one with its mud paws of doom.)

God, Ronnie Corbett. That short little bugger's been on the telly for quite a spell; before both of our times.

Did you know that Eric Idle got his start writing bits for he and Ronnie Barker ( "The Two Ronnies" ) on the Frost Report back in the early sixties?

Man. Also, your sketches are great. I also, being a cat person, loved the cat drawings.

Keep it up!

Hello Oscar! It is windy and rainy. It's in a right old tizzy. We live in a remote little windy rainy spot near the sea.

I'm not sure what Joyce would make of being use as a brush.
