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 🙂
So this Valentines Day, the British government, in all their wisdom, figured that the best way to make people feel less nervous about the disaster that is Brexit, was to send in Boris. I feel less stressed already!
So there’s a reason most of my hands are like lobster claws, I really need more practice drawing them. That top left panel is sort of creepy looking XD
It makes us sounds so much like Trump to say it, but come on, how are so many newspapers able to so blatantly get away with the fake news story they did today?! It was such incredibly manufactured SNP BAD nonsense, like there was a line and they all just leapt over it today.
Well guys, it’s been a long time coming, but the What a Naughty Unicorn book is now out! Thank you to everyone who has supported me during its creation and to everyone who has made me feel like this silly little web comic of mine is something worth doing 🙂
You can buy What a Naughty Unicorn on Amazon at http://getBook.at/naughty
Well, as of typing this, the What a Naughty Unicorn book is sent to the printers for review. I’m supposed to hear feedback within 24 hours, it’s been 23, so they’re sure cutting it close (I type this stuff before I go to bed, so you’re in the future right now, hello from yesterday night!). Hopefully, I’ll be able to order a proof of the book tomorrow, and if that’s all good, I’ll be able to order a few to take with me to Dunfermline Comic Con in March 🙂
This cartoon is another sneak peek from the book and shows one of the main themes of the story line.
This is actually a two-page spread from the nearly finished What a Naughty Unicorn book, minus the text, you’ll have to buy it to find out what that says 😉
Maybe we’ll see something a little more progressive in 2018… maybe…
So one of the pages of the Naughty Unicorn book is actually the original Naughty Unicorn cartoon, but of course, I’m doing it in watercolour so I had to draw the original from scratch. I decided it’d be nice to share it here.
For comparison, check out the original here.
As with all of these, you can order a signed print if you like, just choose the buy print button under the cartoon 🙂
