(“Happy National Day of Catalonia!” if Google translate knows what it’s on about;)

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 🙂
I’ve heard it suggested a few times now that everyone should just start keeping a list of the little things they see changing around them, keeping note of all the freedoms and rights we enjoy right now that drip by drip get taken away, because with each tiny drip we just don’t see it as all that much, but in a wee while, when you put it all together, you’re going to wish you said something sooner 🙁
This past week we’ve seen the first minister of our country be told that she will no longer be allowed to meet face to face with the prime minister of the “United” Kingdom. It says it all about the whole wanting Scotland to lead as part of an equal partnership.
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.
Nice to see the press always telling us what’s best for it and its profits.
Also, yesterday marked the end of my very first Comic Con in Edinburgh! It was utterly brilliant experience and I hope to bring Evil Dr. Eye (or Yes?) to more cons real soon! Thank you to everyone who came over and especially to those who bought prints and other stuff 🙂
