accidental 




Accientally drew a chihuahua the other day. Heaven knows why. But at least it wasn't a pug.

I wouldn't go so far as to say that these are edited highlights from this sketchbook, but I have decided to edit out the worst of the lowlights this time round. Please don't try to imagine...

Also, I note that this is the first sketchbook of mine to have been begun within the lifetime of this blog, so if there were any longterm viewers of it then they might begin to see the occasional repeat from the very early days.

woof 


Haven't yet decided whether to continue with "from the archives" on Tuesdays. May do from next week, or may switch to only selected spreads and skip the especially duff ones, or may give it up altogether. In the meantime, I doodled some dogs recently.

just a scrap 




Only a back of an envelope scrappy doodle, but there's something about the line that makes me like it more than usual.

Ah, yes ... the first signs there of work on a strip called Jellybeanboom that I drew for Listen, the proposed follow up to Sentence from Test Tube Comics. Jellybeanboom was very poor indeed, if memory serves, so the fact that Listen was never published was something of a mercy from my point of view (though a shame in regard to other strips drawn for it by the likes of Mark Stafford, Tom Gauld, Gary Northfield and Nick Abadzis).

I say it was never published, but I should perhaps say that it hasn't been published yet. Last time I checked it was still listed on Amazon as being forthcoming. But don't hold your breath.

Mostly stuff relating to a small press Christmas picturebook I did called, um, actually what was it called? The Christmas Penguins? Maybe. It was Christmassy and had penguins in anyway. (The naked lady did not feature).

Oh, wait ... I think it was Three Wise Penguins. Pretty sure. Clickify to biggify.
