Heres a couple of pictures of people wot i drawed over the last wee while . KEN DODD as a pirate for a client, HARRY SECOMBE, as DOCTOR WHO, as apparently at some time around the JON PERTWEE /TOM BAKER era ,Sir NED OF WALES was considered for the role of the worlds, nay, the universes favourite time lord. The sight of Sir Ned squeezing in and out of the TARDIS would've been 'interesting'. The TARDIS would've had to be a 'lot' bigger inside than out.
Then the 'KING OF COOL', hisself...No not me, but a certain STEVE MCQUEEN of the parish as the COOLER KING in THE GREAT ESCAPE. The McQueen one was watercoloured then inked ,but in my defense that was the intention all along. HARRY(SIR NED OF WALES) SECOMBE...And KEN (PROFFESSOR CHUKLEBUTTY) DODD were painted ,optimistically to be just coloured without ink ,but the famous LEATHERBARROW steely nerve failed me and the ink was slapped on. There was meant to be a painted ,sans ink PETE TOWNSHEND, but a new blog system has appeared on the computer and i tryed to put it on, but i dont know if it'll appear or not ,but that worked ok without the ink and i'm quite proud of that one ,even if i do say so myself ,nobody else will ,so i've got to.
But i shall plough on regardless in my quest for mastery of the paint medium ,but i will also carry on with my quest for mastery over ink. And as i've said cartooning and caricature ,even more than proper drawing and painting are dependant upon the particular artists own style and my style could be a blend of the two. I'll shave my head ,eat rice ,meditate and find my inner self and mastery over the painting and inking arts like a cartooning Shaolin monk.....One day i'll hold a red hot cauldron between my forearms branding my forearms with DAFFY DUCK on one arm and BUGS BUNNY on the other and wander the wild west ,not fighting ,but drawing painted and inked cartoons.
