I have not forgotten about all of you who have submitted their kitty to me! It’s an in between projects – project, so I’m adding feline friends as I go along. In the end I want to tie them up in a nice joint thingamajig, to be decided.
NEW : Peggy Bundy!
This all started with my entry for a book called Milhouse from Memory, by Kieran Gabriel. It did not make the cut. But I was proud of it entry anyway, I gave it an honourary spot on my fridge, so I could see it every day. The challenge was to draw the infamous Milhouse van Houten from The Simpsons, without any reference – material, using your own style. I wanted to add his signature – saying “Everything is coming up Milhouse!” so I spell-checked “Milhouse” 3 times. All the other words I knew how to spell, but checked those as well. Over a year later I reposted it as a memory on Facebook and someone kindly pointed out I forgot the “y” in “Everything”. Ugh… but this gave me the chance to make a new, correct, and even better one. I was really adopting a Milhouse – attitude here. I loved doing these, so from now on no TV character is safe.
A boy and his raven, ready for whatever adventure that may come their way.
My latest entry for the They Draw And Cook illustrated recipes website. These delicious brownies are so good, they just can’t resist themselves!
Drew this as a commission, for the birthday of a grandchild.
My favourite character in Trainspotting has to be Spud (Ewen Bremner), his best moment being during his iconic Job Interview scene, in the first Trainspotting film. In honour of T – those 20 years sure have flown by – 2, I drew this him as a young impressionable lad.
This sweet little thing is Rhea the Naked Birdie. She popped up on my Facebook timeline at least five times today, as everyone seems to love her featherless fierceness. I had to draw a piece of genuine analog snail mail for InCoWriMo: International Correspondence Writing Month, which apparently is each February. I’m going to send this to someone I don’t know personally, only through the Sktchy app for artists, and I wanted to draw something we had in common. Turns out we both liked the viral video of little Rhea.
I’m a bit late to the party, especially if you want this lovely print to hit your doormat before or on February 14th. But hey, Valentine’s Day every day, I say! I made a Valentine out of an angry kitteh I drew earlier. It says: “Happy VD – That’s either Valentine’s Day or Venereal Disease. Same Difference.” Go Full Romantic with this catty quote for your lover. Shame I have no unsuspecting someone who I can scare the crap out of with this. 😜 Find it here: Happy VD print.
