Making It All Up As You Go Along otherwise know as: MIAUAYGA

Thats right! It is MIAUAYGA* TIME!

I posted this on Facebook but I got no response as the people on there suck! You guys reading this blogg. U iz da hardcorz!

Here is an image I drew. Basically you draw a realistic object and then draw its cartoon counterpart based on the shape. Its easy, fun and can in some way help your hand eye and creative thinking skills.

Have a go, there is no time limit or wrong answer :)

*pronounced Mee-oar-ay-gah

In Loo Of Toilet Humor

Haha! Funny stuff. O.k  down to business.

I got inside a long metal tube today and it was flung far into the air, where it proceeded to hurtle through space (and time) and then come down relatively softly in a far off steamy land. Hot and moist, it is the perfect kind of place to start a gurillea war campaign, or as the locals here have done, open organic health food shops :)

Yes I am in Byron Bay (Mullumbimby to be precise) and as I was drinking my Super Green and eating my wholemeal avocado and cucumber  roll, I discovered I was kinda happy. Happy certainly to be here now with good friends, but also just happy to be in this place at this time.

There must be something else in the Super Green besides celery and lettuce.

Work on the new film is back underway. All is well. Lost to do and re-do, and then re-doodoo but hopefully at the end we should have a damn good little short, worthy of international film circuits and certain types of inner city bars :)

No new images other than this. An illustration of a pipe cleaner. This guy look familiar to anyone else?

Halo Soup

Seeing as I am going to be off and away soon, working on a short film in NSW, I have decided to throw up a new comic straight after the first. That way I don't have to worry about doing one next week.

Although seeing as only Simon is following this it is for his benefit only! :)

The School Of Round is now open!

O.k! After a few attempts at posting things up on DeviantArt and Facebook I have decided to move to a blog(double g). Hopefully this will meet with some more success than the previous :)

So what IS The School Of Round I hear you read?

The School Of Round is basically a blogg that I will try (and just like EVERY other person who has started a blogg will get distracted and fail at) to keep updated with illustrations and ideas! I will try and keep a weekly strip going too, and these may have off shoots, if any of them work. Ultimately however The School Of Round (tm) will be a place for me to scream, wild eyed and drooling, into the howling void otherwise known as the "Internet" and strain my ears in the hopes of any kind of echo.

The first post I make will be The Tentatively Titled Weekly Adventures of Obake Dave! Once again I can hear your dull eyes scroll across your illuminated screen, and a small voice in the middle of your brain is saying "who IS Obake Dave?" Well guess what, I'm not here to sit an oral exam! I'm here to blogg! Your questions will have to wait till the end of the seminar. So read the strip and then you can tell ME what the strip is all about! Deal?

So anyway, in answer to your thought, Obake Dave is a strip based upon real life people, who unlike their comic counterparts, are not dead, but are real live oxygen breathing humanoids, who wear novelty t-shirts, have jobs, and are quite nice to go down the pub with. Its also about ghosts.

Please don't let this deter you from reading the strip. Its got nice round funny pictures! :)
