Wow, good sketches, and much neater than the unintelligible scrawlings that cover my moleskine sketchbook.

Just wondering, what size of sketchbook did you draw these in?

That armadillo(?) with the grenade has my interest. As does that rather formal looking- Not sure what he is but tentacles are always a good start.

I was thinking the same thing. An armadillo demolitions expert... that is so apt. :)

These are wonderful! What a great set of characters. I'd love to see these in a strip

I wonder if you'd be interested in exhibiting something you make? I am putting on a show in London at Pimlico library called Little Big Stories, and we're looking for talented cartoon and comics artists, professional, amateur and everything in between!

The library are holding a little show that I'm putting together and what we need are stories that fit on a postcard. If you're keen on joining in, just draw us a piece and send it in the post, and we'll put it on display in the library for 2 weeks.

Full details of how to submit your postcard story can be found at [link] and the original artwork needs to be in by March 11th to

Graphic Novel Mail Art Show
Westminster Libraries c/o my REAL wall
PO Box 63138
LONDON
W14 4BR
UK

I'm afraid we can't return the piece or pay, as it is for a library, but we will endeavour to promote all the artists with a link and a little write up at the show.
