This one was planned for Inktober last year, but I decided not to rush it. I still went through the list of words for each day. From these close-ups you might see the words.

The Inktober 2016 words were:
Fast, noisy, collect, hungry, sad, hidden, lost, rock, broken, jump, transport, worried, scared, tree, relax, wet, battle, escape, flight, squeeze, big, little, slow, one dozen, tired, box, creepy, burn, surprise, wreck, friend.

‘Soup’

I have some new images on my art blog chrisfraserart.com, here are a few of the black and white ones. Some are ink drawings with colour others are pure line studies.

The images below are playing with the notion of life being like a soup from the beginning of life to now, on a microcosmic and macrocosmic level.

Life often feels like a soup. A really thick soup with far too many ingredients that sometimes tastes good and sometimes tastes awful.

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…

Colour in the right places

Afternoon in Kyoto

Afternoon in Kyoto

 

I left the inking like this for now. Maybe in the future I can colour it. It’s a fun combination of sketching, detailed drawing and cartoon illustration. I love the complexity of the scene with all the telephone and electricity lines. I drew this from a photograph I took myself. It was taken from a bridge of what is probably quite an ordinary street in Kyoto. The perspective was a fun drawing work-out!
