I am having the worst of luck with protests and rallies this year! I’ll be at Inverness Comic-Con during the Dundee March, I can’t make the Inverkeithing march, I’m working today, I’m driving to and from Carlisle tomorrow and my son’s first birthday party is on Sunday. So here’s a bonny unicorn kicking the tiny-fisted emperor instead.
Hoping to see stories of a great peaceful protest over the coming days while that evil monster has the red carpet rolled out for him by the British establishment.
This one took entirely too long to paint, so many stripes, so many chances for colours to bleed into each other!
Just a happy wee thistle enjoying the weather 🙂
It only just occured to me that I hadn’t actually published this one yet, despite the auction for the original watercolour of it being online since the weekend!
Do go check out the auction, it’s in support of Little Shop of Heroes, who have found themselves in a little bit of financial trouble after having to cancel Dunfermline Comic Con due to the bad weather.
So this is the third version of Loch Yes Monster (I think), I just wanted to update it with the new style I’ve been drawing my Nessies in recently 🙂
With all the snow from this so called “Beast from the East”, I was reminded of all the snow goons built by Calvin in Calvin and Hobbes, I figured I’d try my hand at drawing snow myself 🙂
This is the second remake of an old favourite for Purple Friday 🙂
So this is another recreation of an old favourite in watercolour. Last year the Scottish Parliament became the first in Europe to commit to teaching children about LGBT+ issues and teaching them that being LGBT+ really isn’t a that weird.
Today is Purple Friday in Scotland, which is the last Friday of LGBT History month. A day to make think of all the little gestures we can all make to make LGBT children and adults feel included.
So I’ve been wanting to remake this old favourite in watercolour for ages. I first tried drawing the web out in white crayon before adding the wash but it did not come out well at all. So I’ve instead gone for the three parts separately.
The blue wash was done on its own, then the spider on its own page. This time I used a drawing pen instead of my usual brush pen, which made the legs a lot easier to draw.
The web is actually the original, which was drawn using black ink from my brush pen on bristol board, after scanning it, it was turned white in Photoshop. Put all the pieces together and this is the result. Not bad I think 🙂
This is one of a few I’ve been recreating in watercolours in time for my comic cons this year. The first of which is in just a couple of weeks in Dunfermline! You can buy a signed print there or, as always, it’s available to buy on the website 🙂
Happy Chinese New Year to all who celebrate it from Scotland 🙂
