The journey begins...

Ipad Girl

Well, good evening, good evening!  Thank you very much for visiting.

My name is Alastair Mclauchlan.  I work as a video games artist by day at a place called Rockstar North in Edinburgh, Scotland. Here you will find things I've been working on in my spare time.

Why am i doing this blog?  Well, recently I listened to a speech made by Neil Gaiman to the University of Arts graduates, 2012. I found this hugely inspiring. Especially the part about seeing your goal as a distant mountain and ensuring that each step you take should be on a path headed towards that mountain. So I'm hoping with this blog I can record some of those steps.

The above sketch is something I did last week at a life drawing class on the Ipad - I love using the Brushes app for this as you get to see all the choices ( or in my case mistakes ) you made along the way. 


  1. Thumbs up- love the colour choices

  2. Groovy. Good to see you on here at last. More please!
