Work it!

Heres some work from work that shall never get used but I feel sad thinking it will get dusty in a corner ha

This guy was a stand in for a rough layout of an ebook but I liked him too much and coloured him in.

and heres a biro/highlighter concept for a children's library which is now void because the space is different to what I imagined!~

Hello again! More doodles and sketches! The first two are for my sister, she got a promotion so I got a nice little card and scrawled inside it with red pencil and biro.

Mad Hatter-ish opening, The images below are from my notebook I had when I was at the Pixar Masterclass (which was amazing), oddly enough I take in more when I'm drawing!~

Mistaken identity.

Long time no draw! So I was in America a week or two ago (it was awesome) And today an event reminded me of something that happened while in LA

So were taking a cab around L.A. and this lovely old man was taking us about, he had a great accent and manner.

 So I was attempting to talk to him and answer questions etc while taking in everything along with my friend Joe
 He was so nice he started offering to take us to Pasadena for half price and wait for us while we finished visiting our first destination which was awesome and we both thanked him.
 "Its no problem, I do it, you remind me of my grandson."
 "You remind me of my grandson" He says jovially while maintaining direct  eye contact with me.
 I looked over at Joe hoping I'd heard wrong, but nope he was grinning and looking just as bewildered as me.
 This led to traumatic flashbacks of other instances
But it was really weird because I was wearing make-up and a dress and I'm a girl.

This was prompted by my dad today. He's been very unwell and is in hospital, so we went to visit him tonight. He was stood in the corridor and upon seeing me and my mum (badly as his eyesight is really bad right now) coming toward him He shouted for my mum. She greeted him and then he pointed to me and went "Whats that?"

I'll doodle some more of my trip at a later date. Ciao!~

Its a good thing I've got a sense of humour! haha
