"Wood" for #illustrationFridayhttp://goo.gl/Sdwt70

...Firstly, I HATE that they broke the Google Plus High Density Bing Machine. I hear it muttered in dark places that Google+ is being slowly decommissioned and that really makes me sad. It has always been a great place to share illustration. These days, I'm most active on my own website and on Twitter. Say hello there, I love chatting while I scribble. Anyway, about this scribble »

“Wood” • for illustration Friday, week of April 15-21. Copic MultiLiner SP 0.05 & 0.1 on Arches 300GSM 100% cotton. This week’s theme evoked a strong image in my mind and I decided to get involved in the weekly challenge. Trees and water are two of my favourite things to draw, perhaps because they’re two of my favourite things in life. I could quite happily live in a tree house out in a forest somewhere, far off the grid – and spend my days in a nearby ocean with fish to talk to and a kraken for a guard dog.

The more I get out and actually look at the world, the less of it there is to see. I have to travel a long way from my little home to take my kid out to see real forest. Near me, it’s all being torn down with the spread of the great ‘urban sprawl‘. There’s not a decent climbing tree with coo-ey, and there’s certainly nowhere I’d be able to teach her how to successfully hunt insects just to see what they’re all about. All the stuff I had available to me as a kid: it was marvellous. And unless you live half way to nowhere, it’s just plain gone now.

As for the rabbits in this illustration: you can come to your own conclusions about their story. If you have one, I’d love to hear it. I just don’t think it is the kind of material that will make a kids’ book.

Anyway, this is what I saw when I read the word “wood” this week, and here it is. Flea says I should put a bit of watercolour on this one, but I’m undecided. I think I’ll go sleep on it:) I’ve been unwell for nearly a week now. That is properly unlike me and I’m so tired of it. I’m off back down the rabbit hole for a nap.

Whale of a Liewww.scribblegraph.me/whaling/
Nice, short sharable link: http://goo.gl/0UTPPl (please share)

“Tasty science-meat!
The Antarctic Minke-treat!
Japanese Research.”

I utterly abhor this continued charade that the Japanese are whaling in our oceans in an effort to advance science; it is a ridiculously transparent fabrication. The Japanese are a highly intelligent people. They are formidable world leaders in fields of research and technologies. To imagine they have not already learnt all they can from a whale corpse beggars belief. Either their research scientists aren’t at all cut out of the fine fabric they’ve lead us to believe all these years, or there is another purpose behind this whale slaughter.

PIGS • (Sus scrofa)
Richard Scarry's books, filled with animals of all kinds, remain one of my earliest and fondest memories of illustration. His style is so simple and yet enormously endearing; he has always been an inspiration to me as an illustrator. I have tried my hand at a few different animals in various poses and scenes - I think these pigs are amongst my better attempts. Particularly the one in the bathtub - he's a personal favourite.

Flea's Daemonwww.scribblegraph.me/daemon/

Recently, we were packing to head over east on a little holiday and Flea needed a book. She had recently caught up to where Robin Hobb has left the Farseer series and asked me for something new. I suggested she follow Robin Hobb with Philip Pullman‘s His Dark Materials, and she is devouring it. She now has a strong desire to meet her daemon… haven’t we all:)

So we spent some time discussing what our daemon’s would look like... (read more: www.scribblegraph.me/daemon/)

A very Bright Blue Christmas • http://goo.gl/zob9LU

This year’s Christmas card was illustrated for Bright Blue, The Police Commissioner’s Fund for Sick Kids. Being asked to create this card for Bright Blue was an honour and an absolute pleasure – all proceeds from sale of this card go towards Bright Blue. Yes, 100%.

Bright Blue does incredibly valuable work in so many areas: funding research, creating awareness, providing access to services and support in remote areas. In particular, their efforts in regional Western Australia with FASD are very close to my heart.

Please, if you’re not in a position to support this year, you could share the scribblegraph blog - http://goo.gl/zob9LU - on social media with the tag #BrightBlueXMAS – that’s free, and it helps enormously!

If you're in #Perth you can also drop into Police HQ and purchase cards in person - important information on how to do that is in the post. 

Purchase card packs here: https://goo.gl/fL8wy3
Please share this page: http://goo.gl/zob9LU tag #BrightBlueXMAS

♥ Thank you

Dream House » scribblegraph.me/dream-house/

Well, hello. Yes, I've been hiding away a-while, but I'm not gone. i just had a major career change that required my attention. You know, that "real life" thing that pops up from time to time. Anyway, I was up at 3am this morning for no good reason, and I was pushing clutter around my desk, and I came across some Illustrations I hadn't posted on my website yet. View all » scribblegraph.me/dream-house/

These were commissioned in 2014 for AFA financial adviser of the year +Dartnall Advisers and used either in part of in full on various promotional material and on websites.

I'm currently scribbling for #Halloween - my very favourite time of the year:) Add me on twitter and say hello while I draw!

The Pilchard & the Mouse (or) Mr Cod's nasty headache
» http://goo.gl/qT1Iu6 for the usual long crazy story ;)

scribblegraph.com passed 30,000 visits today, and without doubt it is because of the wonderful support I get from you here on Google Plus. It was the first place I published any of my silly scribbles :) It's an incredibly hard gig promoting independent art, so although 30,000 doesn't seem much, it is a big deal to me:)

This one is for +Cod Codliness who has been encouraging & supporting me for as long as I can remember. He is sick in Scotland with a nasty headache which is an absolutely horrid way to be when there's good scotch to be had. And he also has a case of the verbals. Well, Mr Cod, this is what happens when you get clever with me! You know, it's a pen/sword scenario. ...except we both wielded a pen here. Erm.

OH! You can now leave comments on the website by logging in using your prefered social media thing: Google+ (of course) Twitter or Facebook. (Thanks, Flea xx)

· about scribblegraph · [ gallery ]
I'm an independent artist sharing my stuff on G+ simply because people enjoy it. 'scribblegraph' started as a few illustrations I did for my daughter, and grew as I rediscovered my passion for drawing silly things as a way of telling ludicrous stories. Incorporating photography with illustration is also something I enjoy, as a way to include texture and light, express emotion and give a greater depth to what are often very simple little scribbles.


· the scribblecrush project · [ gallery ]
'scribblecrush' is a series of "by-request" anonymous love-note style scribbles, from one person to another. Yes, they are completely anonymous! They have been so much fun to do, and I'm very humbled by how much you are all enjoying them:)
