419. Pegasus!

November 22, 2010

November 2010.

Well, it’s been a while.  I haven’t had much drawing or writing time recently. Things have been chaotic, to say the least!

Here’s a little cutesy drawing I whipped up on the Gimp using my Eee PC netbook. Picture me drawing using a little touchpad thingamijig (sorry – I have no grip on the technical jargon!).

404. Winged horse flying over flowers

April 7, 2010

Original illustration: ink fineliner on paper, April 2010. This image is from the RedBubble t-shirt previewer.

I drew this as just a little sketch and my husband turned it into a RedBubble friendly t-shirt. I am very happy with how it turned out. If I can say so myself. I posted it here and here. The first one is my RedBubble Profile, the second is my Bubblesite. The Profile allows users to comment on images and favourite them, the Bubblesite is an online store.

379. Mr Hippo’s Herbarium

September 17, 2009

 

20090803-flokot-mrhipposmall

Ink fineliners on paper, August 2009.

Caption reads: “When Mr Hippo was not chasing the local river fishermen, he enjoyed growing herbs for the organic produce market.”

I was trying to combine a Beatrix Potter-inspired cute animal in pretty garden vibe with that morbid truth that the hippopotamus is an incredibly dangerous animal.

A few years ago, on a visit to a zoo, we were able to handle the skull of a pygmy hippopotamus. I could not believe how sharp its teeth were… and that was the smaller hippo. I imagine the full size version would be full on terrifying!

I have made this design available for sale on greeting cards and art prints: http://flokot.redbubble.com/sets/81539/works/3526674-2-mr-hippos-herbarium

slightly morbid children’s art

September 16, 2009

Some slightly disturbing but amusing drawings by my son (aged 6 years old at the time).

Three bananas on a table smiling, while the fourth banana is sad because it is being eaten.

A house eating people (with the words “munch munch” written below its mouth), while a cloud smiles and watches.

A tree and a person, both sad for some reason. I can’t remember what the explanation was for this one!
