Art on the run-up to Christmas

Cartoon Club

The Cartoon Club at Wealden House was open for a few weeks just before the schools broke up for Christmas and although there were no very young artists there the teenage students produced some good pictures. We worked on facial expression, anatomy and shading, taking fantasy figures and manga-style as our influences. The artists took their work home with them and these two pictures represent the work that we did together.


Body Anatomy


Witch with Shading and Shadows

The anatomy and movement of super heroes is another topic we’ll be addressing, so keep an eye out for that.

The Hulk


Business Cartoons

The weeks before Christmas are busy ones for me as clients commisssion cards and presents. I had several cards to design for both businesses and families (including my own) and two animated videoscribes to complete for a finance company before the end-of-year budget was closed. This was done on time, with help from my technical division busy in the editing suite.

Amongst the clients for cards for businesses were an accountants, an electrical engineers and a tv company who wanted a horse racing theme incorporating caricatures of 33 of the staff.

One family card was for regular customers who have just moved house and the family were about to celebrate the first Christmas in their new home.

Our family card was a take on Christmas movies. (The number 12 was arbitrary and has no significance)

I also managed to fit in a decorated Japanese poem and a logo for a theatre company.
