@davewindett  on Cara

I recently joined Cara, yes, it is yet another social media app.

This one is apparently made for artists by artists and promises no AI so that’s something.

There is also some affiliation with the AI disrupting system Glaze, as of this post I have not had time to explore this aspect of the site.

The Devil is in the Details

Taz from Looney_Tunes

Taz aka the Tasmanian Devil ( also Spelled Tazmanian Devil) is a Warner Bros. Cartoon character who first appeared in the 1954 cartoon “Devil May Hare”

Designer Robert McKimson based the character on the real Tasmanian Devil and his personality was, apparently, inspired by actor Errol Flynn.

Electric Concrete

electric concrete truck

Norwegian concrete contractor OH Betong have in the past commissioned drawings from me featuring their concrete trucks and something that visually represents their slogan - “No Job Too Small”

The company is entering a new era, they have purchased two new electric concrete trucks and one hybrid concrete pump which can pump the concrete with electricity from a cable on the building site.

They wanted a new illustration from me featuring one of the new trucks and the pump.

The figure standing on the safety helmet is a Nisse, a friendly mythical creature from Norwegian folklore.

Roxanna Reynard

Roxanna Reynard, a character I Co-created with writer Ferg Handley for the short lived football comic Foul.

I came across a scan of the black and white line art for this drawing and thought it would be fun to colour it.

The original was commissioned by Arild Wærnes one of the organisers of Raptus the Norwegian comic festival.

Hunting & Fishing

3 pictures of a hunter

Two years ago Cowach Industries ( a small startup ) commissioned me to draw a cartoon of a man using one of their fish clubs.

The owner, who christened the character I created Googan, recently asked me to draw three more images of him.

Apparently a Googan is a term for an inexperienced or badly-behaved fisherman.
