Here’s today’s cartoon. Surely all cats make these resolutions.
Nib and ink and then just painted with watered coloured inks. I wrote the text freehand, but think I still need to improve my handwriting to get away with that for much longer. I used the new inks I got for Christmas, so lots of terra cotta and yellow. The terra cotta ink is very odd – it is sort of gooey and I need to shake it a lot. It doesn’t seem to blend as well as the other colours, but I’m not sure why.
My sister gave me 6 new ink colours for Christmas. Here is a first drawing to test them out.
Blue. Terracota. Orange. Sepia. Violet. Grass Green.
I’ve bought some new colours of ink and really wanted to play with them.
I didn’t spend any time working on the joke, but had fun with Red, Yellow, Ochre in addition to the green, blue and black I had already.
It’s also very nice to be back drawing, having spent a lot of time on the Christmas cards recently.
This was Sarah’s idea. It would be better if I could draw lions…
