Christmas card

December 20th, 2008 (11:08 am)

Merry Christmas to everyone on my f-list!



Click on the thumbnail for an insanely big full-sized image.

The dog is called Albert. He's a bit of a cheat because I drew him a few years ago, before I got carpal tunnel problems, but I've added the 'Merry Christmas' and the glow around the star :-)

Albert (aka Special Dog) is the hero of a children's book I was writing/illustrating for an evening class. He thinks he's a superhero. We can see that it's actually a child's hand that's lifting the toy truck and releasing the trapped teddies...

Thank you! The tutor was trying to get us to draw more like Quentin Blake, but I love Mick Inkpen!

No, I didn't finish it. I wrote a little story (which, to be honest, didn't have quite enough content), created all the characters, roughed out all the illustrations, and almost finished a couple of double page spreads.
