intial drawings (repost )

Hey folks I posted these drawing earlier today, but while fiddling with my blog settings It managed to delete the post along with all the lovely comments,
so lets try this again.... on the plus side the original post didn't have foxes :

I wanted to post before I head to Vancouver for two weeks for a little R&R
here's some initial drawings for a kids book I'm starting to work on, this isn't stuff I'd show the client the drawings are waaay too rough , and as somebody pointed out earlier Yes! the turtles are definitely inspired at least in pallet by Martin Wittig's turtle line up ,and in approach/design the turtle from Cats Don't Dance (love that movie) they'll need some tweaking, but I still enjoy the drawings and I hope you do too,

Oh my Goache!

A few months ago,I was asked to participate in a postcard auction benefit in hopes of raising money to help build a school for orphans in Freetown, Sierra Leone( I was happy to contribute then it sunk in that the material the artist would be working on was birch wood..which is impossible to print on or at least find a printer who will , so I had to bite the bullet and break out the gouache and do something I haven't done since first year at langara college's fine art's program 1999... paint, in the end I think it turned out o.k. and it was a lot of fun being off the cintiq, so I don't think this will be the end of me painting.
