Here's my finished group of 6 x 4 inch Dickens characters. Scrooge is new. I've drawn him many times, the only rule being that he mustn't look like Alistair Sim (my favorite Scrooge), if I did that it would just be a straight copy. I've enjoyed this. I have another identical frame, I was going to do more Dickens, but have decided on another 'theme' with the same palette. I've assembled this group in photoshop, with the same layout as my frame. I added the names in photoshop for this pic, but now think I'll not have names in the actual framed pics. This format opens up many possibilities...for example I could illustrate a favourite song in comic book style...etc...etc.
About the Artist
Self taught. Love drawing. Like to make pictures up, without using reference pics, often in cartoon style. I do other pictures where I do use reference. I'm knocking on a bit, born in 1940 in Greenwich, London. Retired, and loving it.View full profile
