Dangermouse!

It’s been YEARS since I thought about the adventures of Danger Mouse and Penfold. So, many thanks to Mat Nixon for the suggestion and his tremendous sketch. This was a lot of fun for the girls and me. Cate was especially keen to try a step-by-step we found on DragoArt … and did a great job with it.

But, back to Mat. He has an awesome little sketch blog called: http://funwithmarkers.blogspot.com/

How can you not just love that? 

Moomin!

Two weeks ago, we got this cute little 5 Minute Marvel from Helena Juhasz (http://helenajuhaszillustration.blogspot.com/) the author/artist of the kid’s comic Stumpwater. We’d not spoken before, but she sent along this note and introduced the girls and I to the world of Moomin, of which we’d never heard.

“I just drew one of my comic heros from the Finnish strip: The Moomins. Is it ok it’s not a traditional super-hero? He is a troll, though. I think that makes him super! 😉   Helena Juhasz “

Thanks, Helena! We had fun.

Creamsicle for @JoelCarroll

Today, our pal, Joel Carroll shared this adorable little cat drawing over Twitter. It was Cate’s night to pick. One look at this little scamp … who Joel called “Creamsicle” … and her eyes lit up. This was a really fun one to draw. Thanks, Joel.

And, now a word from Joel!
