Brain break

Work is good but BUSY this week, especially now that there’s only two more days until I go on summer holiday. 

Today I had 4 meetings in 9 hours, so I had to take some short brain breaks in between. Most of them involved coffee.

Mouse GIF’ing you a thumbs up

I’ve recently started drawing on my computer with a drawing tablet. It’s an amazing new world of erasing and drawing straight lines and smushing and playing with different brushes and colours. At the same time it’s kind of frustrating, and I feel like I’m a 5-year-old learning to draw.

Almost at the exact day that I decided to go digital, the weather decided to be nice. So today I brought my laptop outside to experiment with making GIFs. It’s not a perfect situation to work outside, but definitely nice. Kind of like this half-heartedly encouraging mouse giving us all a thumbs up for trying new things.

I made a LOT of drawings listening to the fourth Harry Potter book. Here are some of my favourites:

 

 

As you can see, the serious tone in the book made my doodles quite dark and creepy. But here’s a happy gnome and Ron wearing his old dress robes to cheer you up:

And if that didn’t work:

I had a hard time getting the animal versions of Sirius and Lupin to look right, so I had to draw several versions of them. On the other hand, I only had to draw their human versions once to be happy with the result.

 

 

 

 

Werewolf Lupin looks kind of kangaroo like, but that’s the least weird version of him I have. I’m quite happy with the expression on Scabbers’ face.
