Kelpies – Just one

I find it incredible how Trumpian the lies about that debate have been. I mean, when Stephen Kerr demanded that just one power be named that would be grabbed back by the UK government, a list of several were given to him, and yet we now see tweets saying “they couldn’t name a single one.” I feel like their lies are getting more absurd as we go through all of this!

As I type this, my bag is packed all except for this little laptop.  I’m about to head out to DeeCon2017 in Dundee!  This cartoon was actually meant as a greetings card that I’ll be selling on the stand today reading “Hoolet me forget your birthday?” But I loved the watercolour so much I had to come up with a new phrase to turn it into a regular cartoon too.  I’ll be selling this one as a signed print on the stand too so if you like it, come and get it 🙂

The first outing of the unicorn in watercolour.  Turned out alright I think, though I got a bit of a bleed of the yellow when I was doing the crown as I didn’t give the wash around it time enough to dry.  Water colours require a lot more patience that digital, but I’m still prefering the results 🙂

Remember, I’m at Dee Con in Dundee this Saturday, do come along and say hello!

So the other day I had a yearning to visit Hobbycraft and buy some water colours… mainly due to a nice watercolour set being advertised in a Hobbycraft marketing email.  It was a nifty little thing with a brush pen that you just fill up with water and use with the little watercolour pans.  Seeing as I ink my drawings using a Pentel Brush Pen, I figured the transition wouldn’t be so difficult and I’ve been really admiring other artists who use watercolours lately such as Neil Slorance.

I’m really pleased with how this one came out and will be making it available as a print so check the prints page for those on Common Market 🙂

Anyone else in that fatigue point right now where it’s just really, really difficult to come up with positive thinking stuff to do with politics?  I had no cartoon last week, the first time that’s happened since I’ve begun, and today’s one is late, simply because I’m struggling to stay positive right now, and I really want to keep these cartoons positive if I can.

Anyway, I like this idea, I’m thinking of doing a few strips with these two guys, that could be a little fun.
