it's a fun-splosion!




Lots of drawings and projects. Poster for a play a friend is doing, some coffee shop drawings, circus posters and Slughorn. I feel the need to explain the Slughorn thing and the Circus posters. So here we go. Circus posters were an attempt to draw like a person who *can* draw but was never *trained* to draw. Like if you started with the eyes like you used to draw people as a kid. Not sure how successful it was. I like the aging effect though. I'm going to print them out for our featured Circus room at the Hallowe'en in August event at FrightFest this year. Give them a good working over and singe the edges and so on. Slughorn was because I tried him a while back but it morphed into some weirdass non-slughorn character. So much to my amazement when I google images of "slughorn" I find this terrible drawing I did. So I'm doing this slughorn design to try and overwrite my previous terrible drawing of him with something more representative.

Have a good week everybody!

What they said. Which coffee shops can I find skeletons lounging at?

Those Slughorn designs are pretty tight man. Happy art-ing!

That poster is really charming. How was it received? For some reason, at first glance I thought the guy with the gun was Draco Malfoy, though that may be because he's right next to the Slughorn stuff, which is also really charming. I especially like the one where he looks like he's cracking his back. All his poses and expressions look admirably genuine, though.

Love the cafe sketches as always ... is your sketching style changing or is it just that one day? And I think you know too much about drawing to make a totally convincing facsimile of folk art ... Not that that's a bad thing ...
