Leopard-Shaming.


Leopard-shaming, NB this is an extremely unrealistic leopard, this is why the other rather unrealistic animals are looking on disapprovingly. Say no to (jungle) bullying

The Wrestling

A friend mentioned the wrestling to me the other day - not ANY wrestling but the '70s 'World of Sport' style wrestling which ALWAYS uses the definite article. For some reason it was never just wrestling. It was THE wrestling!
Always reminds me of rainy Saturday afternoons as a child so these memories were whirling through my head when I drew it in my sketchbook. I *might* have taken a little bit of artistic licence (see who you can spot in the crowd!)

I've posted the original sketchbook piece below to give you a little peek behind the whole process. I drew it with a couple of Rotring art pens & a bit of strategic Sharpie. I've added some extra characters in the background digitally but most of the original pen work is still there then the colour was added in Photoshop.

(If you're fascinated by the whole era The Wrestling by Simon Garfield is really worth a read!)

National Tea Day

Of course on #National Tea Day the ONLY question being asked is which is the best dunking biscuit?*
*obviously a jammy dodger is a stupid choice but what do you expect from a cat?
(Anyway, what's a cat doing drinking a cup of tea you FREAKS?!?!)

A Bestiary of (dimly remembered) Literary Terms

I was following a thread by @katemond on Twitter about 7 year olds being forced to learn about 'fronted adverbials' at school & after looking the term up realised the reality was a hell of a lot duller than my original idea of what a Fronted Adverbial looked like.

I proceeded to draw some more dimly remembered terms from studying English literature back in the mists of time.

Don't Shout At The Lions Lionel!

Never raise your voice at big cats. This is unnecessary & invariably rather dangerous. Another in the series of 'books I haven't quite written yet'
