Sketchfest...






Nice littel drawing session this morning while sipping two lekker cups of coffee and indulging in some yummy french toast at the local M&B Parkhurst way -- so off to good start to the day for a change... but it'll get bloody busy just about now.... YIKES!!

Funny thing about that coffee shop is that it's filled on mornings with guys with laptops pretending to work. On my way out I once walked past the back of this serious looking dude in shirt and tie typing away on some spreadsheet... I take a peek at his screen and he's browsing an online dating service...LOL.

Ok, lots to do... especially the draft for the intro strip with the characters below for which I am awaiting the copy... then it's trying to get into the zone and calmly focus on doing a good job with that, ignoring all the other distractions -- always tough to do on a new project with unfamiliar characters etc etc... y'all have a good day!! Now, for cuppa java #3 :-)

I'm digging that first dude. He's made a return. He'd be a lanks kiff vinyl toy, for real.

I love doing those guys, lots of fun ... just wondering if they would be too close to Norman Catherine's sculptures?

maybe it's just cape town, but the coffee at m&b is horrible (cheap, but horrible). Though it's not much worse than the stuff they feed us here in the studio.

The screwhead reminds me of a meathod of dispatch used in 17th Centuary India. A big dude called a 'Jeti' would use his hand to drive a nail through the hapless victems skull. Both a means of capital punishmnent and crowd-pleasing.
