Gareth Sleightholme (AKA hesir)

…an Illustrator, Creative Consultant and Lecturer based in Kingston Upon Hull in East Yorkshire.

…this blog will document Observational Drawing produced in sketchbooks whilst in and around Hull and elsewhere, exteriors and interiors, people, animals, architecture and objects.

As well as featuring useful links for those students of art/design and illustration looking for tutorials, tips, reference and links to other people who draw.

As part of his work with college students at both HE and FE he advocates observational drawing as one of the keys to unlocking the mechanics of drawing as a discipline, and subsequently the creative potential of students.

Just like the keeping of a regularly used sketchbook… it can be a difficult discipline to encourage.

But… once instilled it is the foundation upon which all creative drawing can be laid.

Gareth has consulted on work as an Illustrator, Scenographer and Creative Consultant having produced Concept Art and Production Design for the Visitor Attraction, Exhibition and Leisure industry, Historical and Heritage Illustration & Design Work for Museum and Archaeology Services for two over decades; and he is currently looking at Concept Art for Games Design & Animation in his role as a Higher Education Lecturer.
