I have a bumper post for you today! It’s been raining all day so I’ve had lots of time for drawing!
I finished my little sketchbook yesterday and I was so excited about starting a new one (sad I know)! But imagine my disappointment when I started drawing my comic book diary on the first fresh page of the new one, only to discover that the paper is terrible quality and sucks up my pen like a sponge! I haven’t got another one at the moment, so this’ll have to do!
Here’s yesterday’s comic strip diary entry.
|The mystery of the phantom volcano|
We’re still not sure where the volcano came from and it wasn’t there today (or at least it wasn’t visible today)!
|It rains in paradise too|
I managed to take some photos of the little lizard on the tree yesterday. Unlike other lizards we’ve seen, this one didn’t seem particularly bothered by me being so close!

I have yet to enter any drawings for Illustration Fridays, but I decided that today is the day. The inspiration word this week is ‘sweet’. Having already done a drawing of sweets for Creative Tuesdays I wanted to try something a bit different. So I interpreted ‘sweet’ as ‘cute’ and drew this little dude that we saw in Borneo.
|From one end…|
|…and from the other end.|
This morning, while it was raining, I got chance to finish this drawing I started. To be honest I got a bit bored, so it still looks a little unfinished!
Then I moved on to some ink drawings! I wanted to check that my rubbish sketchpad would take water well, so I quickly sketched our camera to test it out.
It seems to have turned out ok.

So then I went ahead and drew this pagoda which I’ve been wanting to draw since we saw it in Sibu, Borneo. Just to be safe though, I didn’t add any water!
|Drawing in progress…|
I think it still needs a little something though!
|The ‘finished’ drawing.|
I’ll finish this mammoth post here with a photo of a dog on the beach!
