When I was a kid I wanted to grow up to be a cartoonist. Nowadays when I say what I’ve always wanted to be it’s ‘an artist’, but back before and around the age of ten, it was ‘a cartoonist’.
Trying to get back into the habit of answering challenges (they give so much inspiration and have me doing things I would never have thought of otherwise). I discovered Got an Inkling over at Dthaase’s site today and was immediately inspired. Great challenge that one. So I scribbled down a sketch to answer that and incidently my first Sunday Sketches in a long time.
It has been a while since I’ve attempted an Illustration Friday topic, and in the past all my entries have been paintings. But yesterday I needed a prompt to try something out, and I happened to remember that this week’s IF was bicycle. So we have bikes.
Sunday Sketches… I actually did some sketching this week as part of my current venture into animation. When I say animation, I mean very basic animation. I did the sketches below as an experiment to see how the process works. I have since decided to use another method and another character, so these drawings are redundant, but I kinda liked him and thought I could introduce you all to Spike (no relation to the Buffy character…though I suppose I could draw a couple of fangs on him :D)

First up we have an attempt to answer last week’s Illustration Friday prompt of ‘deja-vu’. I had a concept, but my brain wouldn’t supply me with an image to fully communicate what I was […]
Okay, so it’s a day early, but I drew it today so here it is. There was the whole bald, cute and nappy thing, but considering he got to sleep on a cloud and then shoot people in the butt all day, his job wasn’t too bad. Cupid, pen on bleedbroof paper, approx. 250 x […]
‘Somehow he felt different after visiting the art gallery.’ Herbert, pen on bleedproof paper, approx. 210 x 150 mm. Just a quick post as my youngest daughter is not well at the moment (upset tummy, nothing major except for the fact she is only 7 months old) and I need to be with her. I […]
‘Special precautions were required when Uncle Bill came to visit.’ Little House, pen on bleedproof paper, approx. 290 x 200 mm Is it a little sad that when prompted with the phrase ‘little house’, the first thing that came to mind was a toilet? Or should I blame it on being Australian? In any case, […]
