Hey Doodle Dandy

A poem and some sketches for you guys ~sigh~ I'm becoming one of those people that updates their blog frustratingly sporadically so I'm going to seriously try and get back on track for the new year... For now I'm busy working on a few new projects that among other things have got me back to animating... more sketches to come - I just didn't want to dump all 50 photos on here at once :) 

Here's to all the ugly kids 
Not quite cute but funny kids

The rolly polly one browed boys 
The short stout speccy four-eyed girls. 

Thanks to all the kids with spots
upon who's skin you'd join the dots

Stand proud the frizzy messy haired
Pale skinned large nose and dairy-aired 

You may not be conventional
belong in Milk or Bambino 

But your the kids I love to see 
All bony elbows and scabby knees

The kids that know who they are 
The ones that end up going far

See I should know how this is true 
I was ugly just like you 


  1. I think your sketchdumps are my favourite. All your figures are so emotional and unique!

  2. SOO CUTE! The poem I mean! I want to see all fifty pages!! :) I love that each drawing tells a definite story! I feel like you could draw anything! P.s. Loveee the mermaid, you should (hint) draw more mermaids (hint) A whole page of them!! Have you ever thought about making little comics for this blog? I think they would be amazing! Anyways, have a great day!

  3. Thanks Erin, makes me feel less lazy for not finishing something ;)

    Ramona - your comments honestly make my day - thanks so much! I think I see mermaids in your future ^_^

    Cheers Toby! Means a lot :D
