Plenty of us Brits coveting one of these right now!

Trying to draw a horse is tough at the best of times, but sketching in the dark at the superb National Theatre production of War horse at the Brighton Centre is on another level.

The staggering puppet horses are brought to life by three very talented operators. I confess I ‘cheated’ on the final sketch and did it from a photo at home.

The urban sketchers are 10 years old this month. Today, in celebration, official groups around the world are sketching their cities, in a 24 hour ‘sketchwalk’.

Sadly there isn’t a group near Brighton, so I had my own, lone unofficial mini-crawl, starting in a damp Prince Albert Street.


I carried on the royal connection at George IV’s chinoiserie palace of debauchery, the Brighton Royal Pavilion


The ice rink is back for the winter. I’m sure Prinny would have thoroughly approved!

Definitely not a mosque

After 45 hours sketching on the streets and 40 miles of walking, my sketchathon finally ended today with Rose, at the Amex stadium.

One sketchbook, one Snowdog per page, no pencil, no second chances and an awful lot of coffee.

I’ve sketched all the Snowdogs by the Sea to raise money for Martlets Hospice and the Brighton Housing Trust. Thank you so much to everyone who has donated so far. If you’ve enjoyed these sketches, you can still make a donation to Martlets Hospice or the Brighton Housing Trust.
