Esplorers of the Unesplored!

Tuesday, 10 May 2011

I could've chosen a more sensible theme for some character designs, but I just wanted to draw ADVENTURE!


It felt weird drawing a big game hunter, obviously I don't hunt any game let alone big ones. His name is Bain, & he'll shoot anything that'll fit on his wall. It's a big wall, FYI. What a villain!!



These guys are a pair; I can't decide how they know each other but they're united by an overwhelming desire to look at small things through magnifying glasses. Except she is mainly into carnivorous flora, & he's particular to slightly dodgy looking mini-fauna. Each to their own, eh?

"This House" is Confused

A few pages from a book I'd planned, "This House" that I dropped earlier in the year. I thought the ideas were nice so I "polished" them so they looked "good", although as it stands the Smelly Monster hasn't made the guest list & is sitting on the curb outside my portfolio, alone, bitter & more than a bit drunk.




I'll finish the book when I've caught up with some sleep/reacquainted myself with my partner/readjusted myself to the suns' scorching rays.

Squeaky, Pink Pigs!

Thursday, 5 May 2011

PIGGIES are beautiful, aren't they? I adore pigs, possibly more than chickens. So sweet & gentle & intelligent. I'd happily bypass wages in return for pet pigs, preferably ginger ones included.


I was a bit miffled by how busy some of my other Macmillan spreads got; felt like the slow disintegration of my logic after a few weeks of sleep deprivation resulted in compulsion to FILL. ALL. THE SPACE NOW. which is just lame. So I consciously went at this one wanting to blow some AIR in their piggy hair. Normally I get that by drawing everything, then trimming the fat where things look like they need some slimfast. Worked out okay I think.

I think this opened a Pandora's box of desire to draw comedy BUMS in everything now, seriously I cannot stop. Someone call someone, send some help. There's THONGS IN MY SKETCHBOOKS.
