Cartoon Animal Triptych in situ

A few months ago I painted some pictures for my baby nephew's bedroom and here's a picture of the finished paintings installed on the wall! :-)

I blogged about this triptych previously which you can read about here

COTD Dreaming of wool

This drawing is done on a smaller scale than I normally work with, the original is only 5"x3" but it's fun to do quick cartoons like this. Here, I started with a biro (ball-point pen) sketch and then coloured in with some Copic marker pens (similar to magic markers). Finally I used a combination of coloured pencils and coloured biro to add a little texture and finalize the lines.
This cartoon was inspired by a young cat that ran up to my wife the other day and was very happy to be petted as it rolled on its back.
The design is available on a range of products that can be found in my store. My website can be found here.

COTD Peculiar Parrot

It's little known fact that parrots drink tea! ;-) This cartoon was partly inspired by some comical budgie cartoons I did for a musician friend of mine some time ago.

The Urban Fox!

They seek him here they seek him there, city dwellers seek him everywhere
Is he rummaging through our bins or down at the docks, that damned elusive urban fox! :-)
