Gin n Tonic + my mate Dave + Sam the ugliest Dog in the world = !
Thats another limited edition of original inkings sorted. 10 copies, 1 wedding gift and 1 artists’ proof (A/P) for me. Very much enjoying inking these pics. Its quite a challenge as for some reason I’ve taken to using a broken dip-pen nib which makes it all the more satisfying completing a finished picture. I don’t think anyone other than me will notice any difference, but it just stops everything looking that little bit too slick. It forces mistakes and that makes it interesting! (masochist…)

Frustrating! :D Grrrarr! Only got 1 1/2 hours in the print shop so had to rush there to get anything done, then frustrated by photographing the prints that I collected cos my camera just doesn’t do what I need for snapping artwork and the paper size is too big to easily scan… and there’s not enough time in the world, and and and…
Moaning aside, feel like I’m still learning and not producing – but you have to walk before you can run I suppose. It took years to settle into a style and medium at Life Class and I don’t relish it taking the same amount of time at the print shop! But maybe I’m just being impatient (that’s a big yes then isn’t it!) Anyways, I’ve been geeking out cataloging everything that I’m doing and part of that is to keep an online record of everything, so in the spirit of that here’s the prints that I collected tonight from last week (apologies for the shite quality shots, note to self try scanning somehow)
Edited to Add (E2A):
Right then, scanning does work it seems. 300 dpi Greyscale archival of all prints pulled from now onwards then… :D

Idle reactionary photoshopping…

Brand new Dave Cat artwork – GO! :D I assimilate your kitty, for we are Dave Cat and we are many…
Marlon Brando – ALL YOUR KITTY ARE BELONG TO US!
So it begins. I’ve created a new twitter feed here:
twitter.com/IamDaveCat – @IamDaveCat hashtags: #davecat #IamDaveCat #allyourkittyarebelongtous
…and a Facebook page here: http://www.facebook.com/?ref=logo#!/pages/I-am-Dave-Cat/171399959561629
Lots more silliness to come – for I am Dave Cat – ALL YOUR KITTY ARE BELONG TO US!
When I first started making the Dave Cat pictures I was working as a 2D animator at AProductions, Bristol… I managed to rope some of my co-workers into posing for photo’s so I could make them into their animal alter-egos! No-one has seen these for nearly 10 years, and it was great fun creating them at the time, so I’m going to post them up here for posterity…
Now it’s all good fun until someone loses an eye. I’m all too aware that the whole grafting people’s faces on to animals gig may not be to everyone’s taste. I assure you hand on heart, I do these in good humour, but if anyone sees any pictures or has any objections to what I post, please just drop me a message or add a comment and I’ll remove the image no questions asked, no hard feelings. I’m doing this for fun! xx :D
