This portrait would be more accurate if I still smoked... I guess in my cartoon self I still do. I fell way behind this month on post but not on drawings, I've got a pile I'm scanning my way through and hope to get all of febs doodles up before it's march. I'm also playing around with some meta-tag stuff and am curious if Blogger looses this data or if it's retained when transferring the image to the site. I'm also interested if Google and other search engines pick it up. Given that there is some less the artist friendly legislation that keeps getting kicked around I thought it might be prudent to start meta tagging my work with copyright info ( beyond the big ass mark on the drawings already ) and a means to contact, cause I know how much everyone be wanting my ideas =P... Well even so, an ounce of prevention eh?
This is an older painting but I like to remind my self how some things start very small and develop into much bigger efforts. The drawing show here actually inspired a short story that I am slowly working on illustrating. The painting, available on my etsy, was an effort to reinvigorate efforts towards the short story illustration. Some day I'll get the story finished but for now...
Slow on the post this past week after the scarf/shirt launch on etsy. Thought it might be good to resume with the first doodle page of groundhogs for the groundhog caption contest. Also thought I should give some love back to Ripsy's blog, were she's posted on me twice! There's few more items coming to etsy and I want to get your opinion on a shirt design I'm testing out, but in the mean time expect more doodle post!
The results are in, Hallorys "Whistle your way on down here and I'll show you a place the sun don't shine..." was the obvious favorite. She will be receiving the orginal drawing above. While the caption contest was a lot of fun, I heard the ground hog actually saw his shadow yesterday, signing us up for another 6 weeks of cold blustery winter. =( I hope everyone stays warms and thanks to everyone who voted, played or forwarded this along!
