Tiny comics

May 2, 2011

It’s been a while since I tried something in the comic form, and I’m a bit disappointed in myself about it because I read and think about comics pretty much all day. So I popped one out today,I basically just took some ramblings from my sketchbook and re-made it into pictures with panels but I’m quite pleased with it.

click for biggerness



It’s something I’d quite like to take a bit further though, like maybe make a little book/zine about my other wacky adventures. Someone I really admire in the indie comic scene is Jeffrey Brown. I’ve always admired his really simple style and the brutally honest story telling found in his autobiographical stuff.  Here’s a wee snippet of his stuff!

 Anyways please check out his stuff, I’m off to draw more comics :)

 Take care!

My Holiday Diary

April 2, 2011

Hello!

Hope you’re all doing well! I had a lovely wee holiday, it was totally beautiful and just what I needed. Now I’m back feeling super relaxed, inspired and more importantly, more productive.

Anyways, I made a little diary while I was away that I’d like to share with you.

Below are my first few entries, I’ll be getting the rest up in the next few days.



Take care!

Busy Busy Busy

March 17, 2011

I’ve been quite productive lately!

I’d Just quickly like to let you know some of the wee things I’ve got in the works…

Firstly is something I’ve been planning for a long time now, a little book! It’s about a little ghost, and all the mad stuff you’d get up to if you were a ghost. I’ve been co-writing it with my pal Campbell, as although I like to think I’m good at pictures I’m actually useless with the words side of things.

Here’s a sneaky peak!

Also! I’ve been designing some T-shirts with one of my screen printing pals, do you think this would look cool on a shirt?

Also in the works is an exhibition at the end of the year and an epic zombie comic which should hopefully be done around then, here’s another sneaky peak!
Right that’s all for now pals!

Take care

There is Always Inspiration.

January 22, 2011

As I sat yesterday evening scratching my head wondering what to draw I remember something one of my lecturers told me ‘if you’re feeling un-inspired just draw anyway’. I know it’s not the most epic or quote worthy piece of advice but none the less it rings true.

See, I haven’t done much drawing this week, aside from stuff in work and my usual daydream doodles so I felt a strong urge to at least draw something worth looking at. I thought and I thought, and what sprang to mind was something of constant inspiration, something so amazing and entertaining that always makes me want to put pencil to paper, and has done since I was about 4 (I’ve got school reports to prove it). I am of course talking about Zelda! and ‘A Link to the Past’ especially, which I’ve been playing through again. What I drew was all the cool items that aid you in your adventure.

I dunno how Link managed to fit all this in his bag, in fact he’s only got wee pockets, maybe they’re magic pockets. Anyways If you have a snes or a wii (with access to the virtual console) I strongly recommend A link to the Past. It may be 18 years old but its Zelda at its best.

So yea go play it.

Cool Space Facts!

January 14, 2011

It may a surprise to you but I actually have a day job, yes believe it or not my doodles don’t quite cut a living. Anyways what I’m getting at is I work as a teacher in a community arts centre, me being the art teacher, and today I was doing a little class on space (our solar system specifically).

It went really well actually and I actually got quite animated and excited whilst I was doing my little presentation, anyways I’d like to share with you some cool space facts! This was actually one of the handouts from today…

I hope you found it interesting! I personally am a massive space geek and I’m holing out for a new telescope for my birthday (february 17th guys!).

In other news I have some cool new screen printing diplodocus bags in my etsy shop,  they’re only £5 ($8) and look how cool they are!

And everyone knows dinosaurs love to go shopping :)

Amazing Invention #16

January 9, 2011

This is a prime example of why I carry a sketchbook about, because sometimes gold like this pops in my head.

I’ve actually got some friends who knit so it’s possible I could turn this into a real thing, maybe I could go on dragons’ den?

Anyways that’s all!

Mixing it up

December 17, 2010

 

Remember mix tapes? They were cool eh? I remember making mix cds in school quite a bit, they were usually for myself because at that point I never had the patience to listen to full albums, but a couple of times me and my geeky pals would swap some, or I’d make one for the odd (yet to be weirded out) girl.

Well I miss them, I really do. So I was all too up for it when a close friend suggested we do a mix tape swap, not with each other but organising it to go round the Scottish music blog scene. And so far it’s going great! I got sent mine yesterday and after a few listens I’ve already found some new favourite songs and bands I’ll be checking out, in fact come to think of it I probably wouldn’t know a couple of my favourite bands if it wasnt for mix tapes.

Anyways here’s what mines looks like!

So yea, if you’re feeling inspired why not make one yourself, and give it to a friend, it might even count as a christmas present if you’re feeling cheap :P

My Dream Last Night

December 11, 2010

Last night I had a dream, a very vivid dream including a space rocket, myself and the moon. So in an effort not to forget it, I drew out what I could remember after I woke up, here have a look!

I must admit, I’m pretty proud of my subconscious for this one!
