I liked this drawing from a few months ago, thought I’d tighten things up with some scratchy line art…

A Mouse On A Makeshift Raft…

I spent a few months last year playing with animated ideas. If you look at earlier posts you’ll see a whole heap of backgrounds I created for the project. It was/is my intention to bring my character Finn MacNiall to life. It was a bit of a learning curve to bring things up to this level and I learned a whole lot on a short space time, of course there’s room for improvement but if things are fun you don’t mind the extra work involved. This one of my earlier efforts, I see this one as a bit of a breakthrough (ie earlier efforts were crappier 🙂

Paper Planes…

Mind Map23_sml1Finished this one off today after a few days away, lovely to come back home and work on something bright and breezy. Wouldn’t it be great to fold up a large piece of paper, grab a pet and fly around like a kid? (my idea of a good time 😀

 

Rabbit Hops Across The Rocks…

rabbit_stream3_smlThis is sort of how I’m feeling right now. I have an exhibition I’ve been preparing for this past year and in the meantime have struggled to stay afloat, have been stuck in limbo and have been running on a ‘hope’ of sorts. The exhibition is on the 11th February, a special day for me as it’s my brother’s birthday, (he’s sadly no longer with us). I’m not sure what to think about the show, I’ve put the work in but there’s no guarantee it’s going to pay off in any way, as I said, living in hope. At least I’ll have plenty of work to sell at the end of it.

These Critter drawings are a lot of fun, (see recent posts for more) – if anyone knows of a publisher hiring illustrators who like drawing fluffy creatures and trees, let me know, I have a feeling I’ll be illustrating again this year…
