R.B.M.C. Was an acronym coined by @drewwellman66 And @robertmoorex quite a few years ago in Bali where daily you'd see big guys on little bikes. All de facto members of the Russian Bear Motorcycle Club. Today's pen and ink on the dining table with @oscarm

A man and his airhead. This guy was the first foreigner to win the Senior Isle of Man TT in ’39. Two weeks later he won the Dutch TT and then the Belgian TT. Later the same year in the Swedish Grand Prix, Georg Meier crashed and broke his back. After the war Germany was excluded from motor sport competition until ’51. On the home front between ’47 - ’53, Meier won the German 500 cc championship on a modified pre-war supercharged BMW motorcycle for six of the seven years. A sketch I drew from…

Sitting here night after night doing cross hatching I am thinking that there must be fifty thousand odd little lines, probably more, that go into one of these drawings. Built up layer by layer until I feel they are right.   Little lopsided and 18” front wheel that look like 21’s other than that I reckon it’s a pretty bloody good job.   What do you think?  .  .

"Got to see a man about a dog" While dad did say this on a weekly basis when he disappeared off to the TAB on a Saturday arvo, it's actually a doodle of a dog called Trigger. Matthew sent over a photo yesterday of one of his dogs. Love that tongue hanging out.

She goes by a lot of names, The Roman’s called her Fortuna, the Greeks, Tyche. Even in Hindu they have Lakshmi. They are one in the same really. They are Lady Luck. It’s a coincidence I finished it on International Women’s Day but at the same time very apt.   When you throw a leg over a bike you need Lady Luck on your side looking after you and out for you to make sure some punter doesn’t start playing with his mobile phone on the highway and take you out in the process.

Being back in Australia after the European jaunt it has taken just over a month to get back into anything resembling a groove and get a picture finished. Started a few not felt it and they were cast aside. So many moving pieces in the puzzle of life just now. .  This one nailed it. The move. Being back beside the seaside and the myriad of options that are at our fingertips. .  I’m winging it, you?  .  #APictureTellsAThousandWords  #BraveNewDay  #SofaSideChickenScratchings

Nights are full of reflection, a time open for looking back and pondering and, like all good scary stories tell us, full of things not seen. . It is in the light of day the crust cracks and all falls away. Free from the weight we find focus and see clearly toward the future right smack bang through the middle of the present. . But I do my best work at night… You? . #playwithwords #truthbetold #WisdomWithWords #pithypencilwisdom #sofasidechickenscratchings

Head, Heart, Hand. A trinity of truth. . Then I stumbled upon the 1913 edition of The Rural Educator, O.H. Benson of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, outlined what he thought made a good rural leader: …the leader must be a four-square individual, trained in head, heart, hands, and hustle, the four H’s rather than the three R’s. . A leader must have a head trained to think, plan, and reason, both with the child and his environments, and not be a slave to the mere textbook.  He must have a…

The goggled ghouls daring death at derelict speeds around the dirt track. All and sundry with their throttles wide open to win. My money's on 8. #Doodle  #feltpensketch  #sketch  #sketchbook

Totenkopf, literally dead's head, is the German word for death's head symbols. The Totenkopf symbol is an old international symbol for death, the defiance of death, danger, or the dead, as well as piracy. A welcome return to pencil after being freaked out
