My father in law has an age old tradition that started many years ago when his brother forgot his birthday. As the story goes, the brother was reminded of his lapse in memory whilst they were out shopping and not wanting to lose face, grabbed the nearest card he could find and handed it over. The card happened to feature an ugly, googly-eyed horse and from there on, the horse card was sent (unopened and still in its plastic wrapping) back and forth between the brothers for 20+ years. Until, one sad day, it was lost. But not to worry, I was asked to quickly sketch a horse as a temporary stand in!
I was recently commissioned to do a cartoon for a cyclist’s 60th Birthday! The main themes were Sheffield Wednesday (the scarf), bad selfies, cycling and his pet cat.
This happens to me most Friday’s. Today was no different. I just can’t resist an invitation to be sociable!!!
Gosh, I really seem to be neglecting the cartoons whilst I focus on photography. However, I was recently commissioned to do a very specific cartoon that included a) Richard III and a reference to carparks b) an old people’s home c) a library of sorts, and errr d) Elvis! Don’t ask…
I’m on day 68 of my 365 photo project! Hooray!
I’ve been working on a cartoon commission for a friend these past few days, and while the pens were out I decided to do a photo/cartoon selfie.
