Speedball & the North Korean Bird Stamps

It’s been a long time since I drew with a dip pen. It shows! But I found some nice things to draw from reference, these North Korean bird stamps that belonged to my later brother in law. They’re not valuable, but they are pretty and show a different side to that strange country (and before you @ me, ALL countries are strange in their own ways).

I see trouble ahead

The players of the Acorn Island adventure game got to visit the three-eared Kat King. He tells them that the bear’s missing father was on his way to Scrimshaw Isle, with a cargo for a pirate gang. If you like that sort of thing then join in here on Twitter (there are only 6 days to go):

Here’s today’s instalment of the Acorn Island game over on Twitter (see the link below to play along). This drawing is much looser, made with a finer nib. I was pleased with it.

Who are those two? Something to think about, but now… what next?

 

Acorn Island: Day One

 

Here we are at the start of our 31 day adventure. Something seems amiss on Acorn Island, and maybe you could find out what is going on. Simply take a look at today’s drawing and then head over to my Twitter stream to vote on what to do (or click in the embedded tweet below):

It’s going to be fun!

This is all part of my Inktober project for 2017. Hope you join in and enjoy.

Acorn Island: Do you want to play a game?

If you head over to my Twitter stream you can take part in a hand drawn game called ‘Acorn Island’ I’ll be making during October. The idea.is this: Everyday I post a drawing along with a Twitter poll. You control the game by voting in the poll. By October 31st I hope that we have all had fun. ‘Acorn Island’ is my Inktober 2017 offering.

Do come and play!
