Barry Whale’s band is going to need a name

Any ideas?

They play underwater rhythm and blues.

Extreme Doodling

Even my dad likes this one. “That’s good that is. You should frame it. Don’t paint it, its good as it is.” High praise indeed. Intriguing how the doodle absorbs what’s going on around you. Telly, and children with ants in their pants sitting on you in this case.

Still got paper stretched ready to do a kids character underwater scene. This is the first stab at notorious undersea(world) crime lords Ronnie Ray and Reggie Cray of the Criminal Crustacean Consortium.

Will paint up some of these soon as I can muster the juices

New Pens = Rediscovering Doodling

Doodling. Takes a new pen to rekindle the feeling of drawing for drawings sake.

bird-lizard

There is method to the madness, probably. There’s a bird fish thing and a lizard claw thing. Keep the layout balanced, make psychedelic madness. WIP.

trippin-fish

Did some ugly fish. This pen draws ugly fish. Aiming to paint it with watercolors. Why wouldn’t I?

manta

Millicent the magnificent manta ray.

robbie-rock-lobster

Robbie The Rock Lobster. Didn’t work. Stopped.

blue-roughs

Roughs for an underwater scene. I’ve stretched some paper. I’ll doodle some madness. Then I’ll colour it in. Barry whale having a party with his mates. For my daughter. You massive crazy.

Barry Whale Does A BIG Splash

I wanted to paint the first Barry Whale, but was scared of ruining it, so I knocked out a second 5 min test Illustration last night.

When I proudly showed Daughter #1 my efforts this morning, she loved the test image (because Barry Whale was doing a big splash) and barely noticed the one I took ages doing. Typical.

So I had a bash painting it with Watercolours and white acrylic highlights. Nice to be flexing the artistic muscles again, I’m enjoying it. Got more plans in the pipeline.
