Another one of my Indie Royale illustrations has recently hit the IR website and this time it’s for the upcoming “Mighty Bundle” which of course I cannot say anything about until it goes live when all will be revealed!

It’s funny when you create artwork as you can sometimes go through a couple of rough sketches, maybe try a few ideas out, but this one had none of that. I mean what’s to do when ‘old fashioned strong man lifting weights’ is requested? All I needed was a nice cuppa tea and off I went a doodling…

As with most of my recent work it was sketched, inked and painted in MyPaint and then cropped for export using GIMP.

I do so enjoy using quality Open Source software.


Zombie Boy Doodle

Funny what a doodle in MyPaint can turn in to isn’t it? Take this one I did yesterday. I’ve called him “Ronnie Stump Sticks”, a zombie boy with out any hands, poor thing.


Not having any hands doesn’t stop him from getting on with the afterlife. Oh no, he’s quite a resourceful boy and uses all sorts of things in their place, you know the typical every day items like, spoons, forks, drum sticks, celery(Apium graveolens dulce), ok maybe not celery but you get the idea.  Using such a wide variety of things does take its toll on his poor arms and as you can imagine it can get a bit messy as the blood just goes everywhere. Though I have to say it isn’t too noticeable when eating his favourite food, cream of tomato soup!

And on that rather small blog post of total nonsense I’m off to make a nice cup of tea.
