So I drew these animal characters ages ago for some Daily Doodle prompts on Twitter, but didn’t color them in until last week when I was desperate to find new pieces to put in my portfolio for a children’s book conference. It wound up being one of the strongest pieces in my portfolio since I haven’t completed many kid-appropriate illustrations in the past few years. I’m going to see how this style works with my new picture book dummy, because I need to figure out a color solution that is not terribly labor intensive. I have over 30 characters on one particular spread, so for the sake of my sanity I’d like to keep it simple.
The digital department manager at Ooligan Press is the reason I’ve drawn many cute animals over the past year. She’s the reason my silly animal drawings are all over the Ooligan Press website, so when she requested some kitchy animals for her instructional ebook guide, I was happy to oblige. Without further ado, may I present cute animals with ereaders!
On October 26th I will be turning 26! Golden birthday!
Birthday Cat! ‘Cause it’s almost my birthday!
Bonus drawing of Mr. Snorkers, a very classy pig. I would like to imagine that Birthday Cat and Mr. Snorkers would be great party guests.
I made a halfhearted attempt to get onboard the #inktober train this month. Managed to produce 3 drawings so far, based on twitter @Daily_Doodle prompts.
Here’s how the final pieces turned out! If you’re in the Portland area, you can check them out at Gallery Mini on SE 8th and Main St.
I definitely created the “cartooniest” work on display in the gallery. I’d like to go back in and work on these pieces a bit more because I really like the concept. I was just a bit rushed to complete them (which was entirely the fault of my time-management skills).
