Hi – I’m Lou Longworth. A while ago I decided I wanted my drawing and illustration to be more than just a very occasional hobby and this website is to invite you to join me as I get into the habit of drawing more regularly. I’ll be sharing some of my work on my blog as well as talking about a few of the things that I’m getting excited about along the way. Mostly though I just hope to make you smile when you see my doodles 🙂
My drawings always start with a pencil and paper, whatever I’m going to do with it afterwards. This is my favourite part of the process, just sketching ideas and seeing what emerges. After that I’ll either scan it in order to make it digital, and sometimes add some colour if I haven’t already, or copy it onto the final medium, usually ink on heavyweight paper or burned onto wood with my newly acquired pyrography machine. I love making stuff, so putting my illustrations onto greeting cards, coasters, etc gives me the best of both worlds.
