New Website!

WIDTL Hompage 01

After lots of putting it off, and struggling with themes, my new website is finally finished! It contains lots of University work that never got posted up on here, so I heartily encourage you to check it out! If you hover over the ‘Portfolio’ tab a series of sub-menus will appear that will take you to whatever artwork you wish to view, whether it be comics, children’s illustrations, or fan art – many of which I’ve yet to post on here – be sure when scrolling down through the pages you give the theme time to load up all the images :)

There are links to the facebook page and twitter page (to which I’ve relinquished control over to the site’s mascot; Cosmo Cat – be sure to follow him for arty updates from myself, and other artists I follow) as well as links to my deviantART, Instagram and of course, right here at Q.U.A.R.C.S! I’d like to thank all of you who have ‘followed’ me from when I started this blog back in 2009, your support and encouragement has been a great motivator so far, and any love for these new site’s would be gratefully received!

 

You can find the new website here: whereidrawtheline.com – just give it a click! :3c

I made badges!

I… *thumps chest* have made badges! (imagine that in a Tom Hanks voice, and continue for the rest of this post)

To help promote ourselves as up-and-coming Illustrators looking for work, our tutors suggested we look into unusual ways to get our name out there – something a little different from the standard business card/postcard route. I thought it would be fun to make badges (or ‘pins’ if you’re American) with my characters/web address on, and here’s what I came up with:


I think they turned out pretty well for a first batch 🙂
Featured from top to bottom:
1st Line: Mascot from my soon-to-be-website whereIdrawtheline.com, Cosmo Cat, and a Meteor Mouse
2nd Line: The Carrot Crusader and his side-kick PeeWee
3rd Line: The Carrot Crusader’s evil nemesis, Dr Potassium and Sour-faced reporter/token love interest Peachie Keen
4th Line: Name for my new website and Emo Cat, a character from my 2nd year work

Here’s a few shots of the badges in action…

Strike that pose Emo Cat

Cosmo Cat: Relationship Guy

Please, tell Cosmo Cat all of your problem.

All that wine and she serves up tea – Dr Potassium is not impressed.

Grinning like a Cosmo Cat

Tea Time with the Tricloptipus

 

Hooray, the Tricloptipi of Nebula Oblongata have finally surrendered and the war is over! Cosmo-Cat has been sent in to negotiate a peace treaty, but first he needs to negotiate the traditional mug of peace-time-tea past his space helmet…
