You never forget your first

tiger I’ve been in print/art/design for a long time. I’ve had many firsts. Each one gives a little thrill.ย The first album cover, the first van wrap you see drive past, the first 40 foot building wrap (on a cinema). They don’t come along often and I count myself blessed in each of my opportunities.

One of the ‘firsts’ I’ve not gotten to break into is cartoons/comics. I’ve doodled and drawn, done the 24hour world comic day, done the comic creator challenge.. but comercially, never gotten to do it. Tried many times mind you. But clients have always gone for the graphics/photos options.

Until today.

Today I get to be a commercial cartoonist. I’m buzzing like a kid after their first candy floss ๐Ÿ™‚

things that make you go hmmm

This is the original as posted by the lovely miss lottie for her blog challenge

and then.. a few weeks later I saw this

of course i’m sure it’s just co-incidence and the fact her blog has been posted into forums full of irish based designers would have any bearing at all on anything.. naaaah. ๐Ÿ˜‰
