“Jumble City”






I posted these doodles on the goingtoast.com cartoon blog also. I had fun doing this with no preliminary pencil sketch, just letting it fly. I’m thinking that this could turn into a series incorporating some of the characters from the blog, perhaps following one of them on a journey. Let’s see if this doesn’t turn into another always ongoing unfinished project! Colour would be great too…

    1. Thanks for the great feedback! My thinking is that they could be eventually linked into some sort of story, but I’m just doing them for the love of drawing at the moment. It’s great that you think they could make a good kids book!

  1. Whoa this is seriously cool πŸ‘I’ve got pretty artistic friends (none of that rubbed off on my though, as is plenty visible on my blog airborneorange.wordpress.com) and this is right up there with the best.
    You ever think of selling these?
    Do check out my blog though please. I only just started and need all the feedback I can get.
    Thanks in advance and see you there!

    1. I’m continuing some kind of series of drawings with a similar style and characters. I’ll check out your blog. If you’ve started then all I can say is to keep at it! I don’t post things that regularly online, but I can see the benefit of doing that. You have to trust what you’re doing is good and keep challenging yourself and learning. Oh boy, I hate it when people give advice like this, but we all need support.

      1. It can take years to get something good. I’m still crap compared to some, but I keep doing it anyway!

  2. Beautifully drawn. Even though it’s a jumble city, it’s too clear. The story inside the box will make the brain get into the concentration. Hats off to your time. Worth spendings over the creativity.

  3. It looks absolutely hypnotizing! The attention to detail and making that itself to the core of the work is amazing, I love it!

  4. Wow, I kept staring at them for a long time. Shapes emerge and disappear as one follows the tiny lines. I work on what I call ‘architectures of congestion’, which are so central to the south asian urban experience. In some of these drawings I was searching for the localities of Delhi that I have been working on:) The connections are uncanny.

    1. My travels to cities like Mumbai, Varanasi, Kathmandu, Kyoto and even living in London come through in these drawings. ‘Architectures of congestion’ sounds very interesting and very India!

    1. Thanks, I’m glad people like this drawing. There are more drawings like this, so please take a look at them too πŸ‘
