Of Monsters and Beavers

I was asked to do a few quick monster designs last week. Turned out what they actually wanted was beavers. Easy mistake.

Bristol and Clifton Oil Gas Company

Here are the remains of the old gas works on the other side of the docks. Apparently they date from 1870 and used to produce gas from whale oil.

Boats and Chimneys

Another quick one of the docks - this time the boat yard alongside the SS Great Britain (on the left). The second sketch is of a building I spotted from the rooftop which has lots of chimneys - my sketch is actually 4 short - there ought to be 19 along the top row...

Bristol - it's not like it used to be.

Ever since one sold for £1m the whole of the floating harbour seems to be being covered with apartments. Some are ok to look at, some are hideous and some are blocking out the view we used to have of the SS Great Britain.


Spent a very enjoyable weekend camping in Dorset. This was the nearest pub to the campsite...
