The devil’s coffee

Damn good coffee!

I quite like the black and white versions. The closer it gets to winter in Finland the more pale I get, so there’s no use in colour anyway! I wonder how devils survive in winter?

Devil on the shoulder

Sometimes I have this devil on my shoulder. Sometimes he’s fun and sometimes he’s there just to cause trouble.

A bit of fun and practice with the ipad anyway. It’s very different to traditional drawing for me. I feel a bit inadequate still, but I’ll keep practicing. The devil idea comes from my thoughts about my artistic background. Going to art school is a bit like having a devil on your shoulder for the rest of your life! Plus, I’m sure that eveyone has felt they have a devil on their shoulder about something!

I like this noir version, but I should be smoking!

My pitch to Netflix: ‘A disgruntled full-time working family man who constantly seems at odds with the world around him finds his world getting even more challenging when a little red devil decides to appear at the most awkward times.’ 😆👹

Leftovers!

Leftovers large

This one is made up of leftover sketches from the Inktober sessions last year. I liked some of the characters, so I thought it was a shame not to give them their own scene.

I used a Sakura fine brush pen which was great fun to draw with and adds a new depth to the line work.

This follows on from an earlier drawing. The guy with the parachute has now landed in this crazy manic restaurant. Outside the windows you can see the city and transport vehicles; there is also a big delivery of watermelons for the watermelon gobbler. In this city there doesn’t seem to be much difference between the inside and the outside.

The Scottish Inventor

After coming back from the Glasgow transport museum last year I was inspired by seeing the wacky Sinclair C5 and other more successful inventions such as the Spectrum home computer from Clive Sinclair. There were so many different old vehicles that were preserved so well it was very inspiring to see the development from then to now.

For fun I started doodling this scientist inventor guy. He’s supposed to be ginger, have tartan trousers and a lab coat full of stuff. I know, I should colour my drawings. I’m not sure of his name yet, but he could possibly be a Fraser 🙂

I started watching ‘Rick and Morty’ this year, so I’m happy that this character doesn’t resemble Rick apart from the lab coat, but I understand if people think I’m inspired by that. I think this guy is trying to find wacky solutions to everyday problems rather than screw with the whole universe. Perhaps Rick is just a bit cooler than a nerdy Scottish scientist, so he’s on the shelf until he can get more funding.
