the strumpet + kevin the badly drawn sheep

FIrst thing, my fab studio mate Ellen Lindner and The Strumpet comics anthology are less than £100 away from the £1000 they need to publish Issue No. 1! (It's actually a re-naming of an earlier anthology to which I contributed, that sounded way racier than it actually was, but which made it a bit hard to trumpet about on a children's book illustrator's blog.) This latest issue will be packed with comics goodness by creators such as Ellen and my former DFC colleague Patrice Aggs (whose book for all ages, The Boss, I blogged about very recently).

Go on over to The Strumpet's Kickstarter page to find out more about how you can help out, for as little as two bucks! (That's just a bit more than a pound, Brits!)



I hit a bit of a mental roadblock yesterday and starting mucking around writing a story on Facebook, bit by bit, and posting them as sort of Facebook status updates. It began to turn into a comic called Kevin, the badly drawn sheep. But I'm not a huge fan of Facebook, so I thought I'd better post them here since this is my blogging home base. It's a bit silly, I don't know if I'll keep going with it or not. But after I finished making it, I did an illustration for work that I really liked, and very quickly, so I think it was all grist for the mill. (Extra points if you spot the sheep-in-the-box reference, but it's not essential.)




















And one more thing, here's a fab song and animation I spotted on the FPI blog here:

Personally, I was hoping for a boa constrictor digesting an elephant or, failing that, a hat...

I am afraid Kevin lost control, all the likes in the world wouldn't have helped him. Poor Kevin.

I'm worried about Kevin.
I too would like to hit the like button. Poor Kevin. Maybe you could give him a paper bag to wear so he could walk around without being seen?

Re: I'm worried about Kevin.
