Staithes and gulls galore...





I went on holiday last month to a grand little fishing village on the east coast of Britain called Staithes. The place has already been photographed, painted and printed more than most, but not to let that stop me I thought I'd work it up into a print design too and see what happens. Gulls pretty much rule the roost there (as I can attest to with more than one sleepless night!), "mine...mine...mine" is spot on, so they are going to have to feature pretty heavily in the illustration, hence I'm trying to get them right before I go on. And now my sketch book is covered in gull sh*t !

Beautiful! Their expressions are perfect. I especially love the page with the two close-ups.

The gull sketches are great.
Maybe you could make gulls out of the gull sh*t C:
My daughter did a picture where our pet gull was saying mine to the cat who was also saying mine to the gull funny how yours are saying the same thing.
