My website will be undergoing a lot of changes in the next 12 months, due mainly to the demand for more images relating to my current work, and requests for more detailed information about my working processes.  I am currently working with a design team to build a comprehensive catalogue of short videos and information downloads.  Up to now, most requests have centred on my approaches to drawing outside in my sketchbook, and the transition into my studio drawing and the techniques I employ.

Ian Murphy in his studio As this is a very time consuming process, I am trying to establish exactly what content should be included in the first release, which at the moment is scheduled for September 09.  There will be an initial small download available by the end of April, which will give you an insight into what I am trying to produce, but I would really appreciate any requests or suggestions to any specific processes you are interested in.  You can email me at or leave a post on
