Sketchy LX

…all references to goats are real and pertain to the previous occupant of Dee’s new lair and his goats….

….after much scrubbing and airing the goat odour is much dissipated…

…yay….

Sketchy Colour Supplement

…somewhat more of a quiz than a supplement….

…is it A.?…

…or B.?…

…or C.?…

…or D.?…

…or E.?…

…or F.?…

…there is more than one correct answer and your decision will count towards your final score…

…(…busy night on the drawing board…coupla large pieces under way…lotsa painting…and jamming these photocopied grids to colour guide some upcoming line work…might upgrade a couple to paintbook depending on quiz answers…)…

Sketchy LVI

…the day after I quit my day job…

…5 days after that…

…nearly back on sketchbook-track…

…(Dee’s drink bottle is 250mm)….

Sketchy LIV

…still slightly in creative stasis here, but note doodle to right…

…inspired by this….

…which led to further speculation…

…one day I’ll hopefully find enough time to figure out the gearing for it and make my very own spinning backdrop!…

…and here is your Xmas bonus…

…something I stumbled across, found fascinating and had to note down….

…(mainly because it has an octopus in it)….

…Japanese T.V. show…”Gimme Gimme Octopus”…

…watch a couple of episodes then go back to what you should be doing…

…spending festive time with your family!…

…Jingle bells…

…(…”dog dog community”?….Google translated “Kure kure takora” into Maori because I noticed the similarity of word structure…)…

Sketchy LIII

…so….sketchbook hits a rough patch here where I got myself a day job and didn’t feel comfortable doodling on breaks with a high ebb and flow of workmates….

…at the same time I was trying to get back my cartooning mojo for not one, but two requests for contributions to local comics…with unsatisfying results as my head is just not currently in that space…

…these are excerpts from those troubled pages…

…ok ok…not as bad as I made it sound but if I compare it with what I was producing pre-this period, factor in that this is my entire sketchbook output for two whole months and what is going in the book now that I’m back on nightshift….it ain’t flash!….
