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 boards.ie 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™‚

another find in a click link wander has led me to this talented lady, Sedova Elana. I like the choice of colours, the feel of the dogs skin around the eyes and the emotion of the picture.

the website also has cute bunny animations on it’s title rollovers

the wonderful thing about Flickr (and ain’t flckr a wonderful thing) is that whilst roaming through language is no barrier to finding the most delightful of stuff. these, for example, by spain based Pau Morgan can be enjoyed anywhere ๐Ÿ™‚
