Early Battle Scenes 2: pencil on paper. Oh oh. Looks like trouble for the little guys at the bottom.
Early Battle Scenes 1: pencil on paper. Part of a large scale battle scene amongst my long list of not-yet-realized ideas.
Early Howls 2: pen, pencil on paper. Antlers! I also wonder what those smiling combs are to the left.
Early Party Howls 1: pen, pencil on paper. Precursor of current Howls, hanging out in my sketchbooks. I love how their hats match their coats.
Bear With Balloons: pen on paper. You can tell it is a rough sketch because I wrote the word 'floating' over top the balloons. I don't know why, a balloon on a string is pretty self explanatory.
Book Cover Thoughts: pen, pencil on paper. Book cover doodles for a couple of my favourites. Read them if you haven't already, they are wonderful.
Guest Post Kes Longman: pen on paper. Wow. You know, when I approached Kes about doing a guest post, he was a little apprehensive( I could tell because he started to eat a crayon he was holding). I explained that he could of course draw whatever he liked, no pressure to make it representational, or meaningful or even comprehensible. Just have fun, and be sure to submit me the jpeg of the finished image at 300dpi by 10pm EST Friday night. Well done, young man, well done.
Kes, You're 20 Months Old!: pencil on paper. Lest you think that Kes is feeling pensive, maybe gazing out the window thinking longingly of bike rides and flower sniffing, I should tell you that he is in fact watching Toopy and Binoo, a most favourite show. The only other time he is still long enough to draw is when he's asleep, but then his eyes are closed and the room is dark, which makes things a little more challenging.
