Purple Panels - 'Under Attack'

I've been hearing some chatter and seeing some articles about 'the hypocrisy'. So today I did a cartoon about 'the hypocrisy'.

First week of 2015!

Happy New Year! Hope your 2015 has started off well. The COTD blog has been idle for a bit over the holidays, but I've started posting new characters again over the various social network places. Thought I'd save all the entire first week of posts for one super-post here once they were all completed.

Below, you'll find: Bump, Tentaskull, Inside Cat, Back To Work, Crocodog, and Spout and Cup.

If you'd like see more characters as they're completed next week, please join me on Facebook or Twitter sometime. I'm going to try to keep the 'daily' posts on those places for the next little while and see how that goes. And I'll aim for another superpost here at the end of next week.

Thanks for being around!

It's Been a While, Sludgecake!

I realise I haven't presented a Sludgecake page in a while (that is, collected sketches and doodles), but, hey look, here's one now!

And yep, it's got one of those girls from the recent 'rough work' posts in it. She and a few other COTD characters are appearing in a longer story, which is one of the things I'm working on at the moment. Ideally, I'd like to present that story in its entirety when it's done (or at least have it all finished before posting it in installments), so, for the time being, while I'm working on that and some other things, I really won't be able to present completed work every day, like I have done in past periods of Character Of The Day.

But I'll still try to keep things fresh here in COTD with rough work and various odds and ends as I have them. So, I hope you don't mind Sludgecake pages - you'll probably see more of them in the days ahead.

Red-Eyed Riding Hood

Here's a spooky cartoon I was trying to finish before Hallowe'en, for Characters of The Night, but I ended up getting so busy that it's only done now.
I've got a new approach to creating the content for Character of the Day and I'll post something about that next week. For the rest of today and tomorrow, I've got to prepare for Quinte Mini-Con which will be this weekend at the Quinte Sports & Wellness Centre! November 8 and 9 I'll be there, with a tonne of other artists, plus cosplayers and fans of everything you can think of. I'll have some prints and original art and I think it'll be a great time!

Set your phasers to 'fun'!

COTN Update - Zoinks!

Like, zoinks, Scoob!

I'm falling behind on my daily spooky characters... again! But I've decided not to worry about it. I'm just not in a mood to rush the cartoons these days. I think it's because 'Characters Of The Night' has a spooky vibe that I really groove on and, more than any other aspect of working on them, I enjoy building up the seasonal atmosphere in the drawings. Which takes, y'know, a bit of time.

Not sure how many more COTN I'll actually get done between now and Halloween, but I'll do what I can. Anyway, hope you've been enjoying the ones completed so far; here's a sneak peek of the next COTN and some of the inking I got done today.

Character Of The Day: groovy.
