When I heard this week’s Cartoon Craziness Challenge was ‘superhero’, I didn’t have one minute of hesitation. I actually know a superhero!
Today is his 75th birthday, and he seems the same to me as he he was in his 50’s. Still has all his hair, and his all original parts, and best of all he still has his silly sense of humour. This cartoon is drawn from my favourite photo of him, taken by my hubby when Dad was over to visit us. I forget why he turned his cap backward and struck a gangsta pose – maybe some rap/hip-hop music was playing in the pub we were in? Still, you haveta love someone who is willing to be goofy a) in public b) in their 70’s c) in a foreign country surrounded by strangers.
Of course he’s super for a lot more reasons – but if I get all gooshy here, he will tease me unmercifully!
Love you dad and thank you for everything you have done for your family over the years. Wish I could give you a big hug today!
My contribution to the Cartoon Craziness Challenge – this week’s theme is a self portrait. I wouldn’t be me if I wasn’t making fun of myself, so the original post is about talking in my sleep, Lokii being evil, and finally my getting yet another zit, or spot, at the age of 40. Yes I’m fucking well older than that now and I still get them, so I repeat: what the hell?
Anyhoo, I’ve re-read it, and it’s kinda funny so please do have a look!
So I’m kinda cheating on the challenge, as I already had this drawn years ago. Tough noogies.
Moi, for real (I drew my features from a photo) with a Giant Irish Talking Spot/Zit from Hell.
Ah, I don’t normally do these, but I felt the immediate need to draw a cat in a hat when I saw The Indecisive Eejit’s challenge.
Yah, it’s rubbish but I enjoyed the 10 minutes it took to do it – I use the Brushes app and it is ‘fingerpainting’ on an iPad. I can do much better work, I promise – my favourite being Ivy and Stewie. Please, have a look – I promise I’m not usually so… quick?
A completely random whatever-it-is. Just because I drew a line… it turned into this whaddyacallit. Seems a bit of a Seuss tribute, in retrospect!
Yep, there’s a reason I used so much Purple!!!!
I’ve not put up any drawings in a bit. Here’s a cartoonish take on a border collie, then – he was the inspiration for Red Dog, which I like a lot more!
I did Red Dog just for me a few days ago. I wasn’t going to post him, not yet, but I really, really like him and need cheering up. I used a picture of a stalking dog as reference, but didn’t use the original pic like I normally do. I also put his tail up, instead of down like the working dog would be, so he looks playful.
Oh – he was ‘for me’ in that I felt the need to have a bit of fun, damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead! But he’s also for my sister – she inspired me to try a few new ideas :)
These are the two I did quickly, for kids. I Googled ‘kids favourite animal’ and these, along with tigers, are pretty high up there. I’ve not gotten around to trying a tiger yet!
Hi! Sorry I’ve been quiet the last few days, something not-good happened and since I can’t put a funny spin on it, I’m not going to talk about it.
So, here’s my goldfish picture. I took the original pic at the pet shop last week.
