    -"Flexible demon with an itchy leg." -
    -You've explored so many types of lines, so many styles. You do so many feels nicely and that's when my *Head explodes* Awesome.
    -Santa sued ... lmao

    I don't know what helpful comments to drop in this sb Beth... I believe and trust in all your wanderings.
    If my next post is another ass pat, don't shoot the messenger.

    ...
    Everything starts with a plan. A plan with a little room of randomness, bonus.
    -Comic books, a series of illustration/panels maybe? Trust in that whale gutt.
    Try doing exactly the opposite and see if it re-focuses on your real goals.

    I personally like all your funny comics (along with everything else) so that
    doesn't really help in finding your quiche, I mean niche. Perhaps Checking out your favourite editors
    might give your some (base) directions to follow as you build up your industry strength and influence.

    theories: BOY I AM GOING TO COME OVER THERE AND GIVE YOUR LINES A NICE GOOD SCRUB AND THEY WILL BE AND SPAN!

    JailHouseRock2: nothing like a bit of colour to liven things up! cheers very much matt haah, the colours on the christmas one were so much fun. some more refined colour work, you think?

    dwardo: psshaw, asspats! you always have something good to say to me thanks very much for the advice and encouragement. I've got a story idea (god knows I have hundreds!) that I really really want to work on and I was thinking of sending stuff off to illustration agencies (I mean, even if I got some helpful tips from it, that would be great), it's just finding time away from college and boosting my confidence. BUT I WILL DOOOO ITTT!

    brubaker: thanks very much for visiting my sketchbook, and for the nice comments. I'm checking out your stuff RIGHT THIS INSTANT, user of the lovely avatar

    and when I do, you can have a dedication and everything. "to my fishy friend"

    got some stuff to scan but it's all over the place and I'm suffering from some horrible chest pains at the moment (it hurts to breathe!)

    so, just for fun, some pictures of what I'm doing in art class to accompany my illustrated book. it's a little cardboard city, complete with junk monster

    I've been home sick with a bugger of a cold. On the downside: no sleep, lots of sniffling. Up side: get to draw lots and lots and lots

    some more illustrations for my storybook for art class. the palace and the kings are pieces for a competition. too tired to type much more now. nightynight!

    COLOUR IS GOOD, EVERYBODY. COLOUR IS GOOD.

    Really like the fish in your first post. But the trees in the background kinds of ruins it alittle. Feels too blurry compared to the rest.

    Lav: thankyou very much!
    krel: I do see what you mean! maybe someday I'll revisit my fish and treeeeees....

    it's all gone quiet my side! I sort of crashed and burned at the end of this year (mentally mostly, but now I'm ill as well!) pants. I feel pretty rude, not replying to everything and that and I do apologise

    I belligerently accept that I maybe, kind of, might just need a break.

    it'll warm me up for another year of drawing like a madman this year has been pretty good. and right now I'm learning to be happier and enjoy things more (feels good man. it's like spring cleaning for my head)

    PSSST! a bit of shameful selfplugging, here... my band (comprised of me and two of my bestest friends) are putting together a little CD of songs. I'm not too good at music, but I adore it and maybe people might kind of like to listen to a song I did for said CD: (IT'S ABOUT WINTER. AND KLIMT. VAGUELY!) haha, enjoy listening to my warbling.

    you've all been wonderful! take a bow! I hope you have the best of christmases/festive celebration of your choice and hope that the new year brings each and every one of you everything you deserve!

    new year, new sketchbook. CATCH YOU ON THE FLIPSIDE, DAWGS

    love and guts,
    Gutss

    So I attempted to make a new sketchbook, but THAT AIN'T HAPPENING. I enjoy the hellish mess of my thread right here too much to abandon it.

    the Narky fishman is a very silly set up to a bad pun:

    "my good fellow, may I direct you to the Narky party? they are a lesser known political party of mutants that were unfortunately exiled to Sweden in the '70's due to abhorrent racism. They are good, honest people and I (and a few choice others) believe that they will truly provide for this country. Unfortunately, some utterly despicable and arcane ... See Morelaws forbid them re entry into this country. As the head of the BRING US OUR NARKIES (or BUON) campaign, I would like to offer you a leaflet..."

    yesterday, God came to me in a dream and told me that if I don't become a comic book artist, he has decreed that I shall instead be a burlesque dancer.

    And I said, "But God, nice panties are so expensive!"

    And he said, "Welp, I suppose you better shut up and draw."

    bits and bobs. snow has apparently halted the entirety of my little British existence and the lack of outside contact is frazzling my brain a little bit

    at least I have my giraffe.

    (my anatomy study is about to FALL OVER. GODDAMN)
