This is a sketch from a while ago, but I thought I’d release it to the wild, wild internet.
Hope you like it!
Friday: Had a lovely evening playing blues (on flute) with Ben Carr at the Kings Arms Hotel. Really friendly atmosphere & buzzing with people!
Saturday: Day job in the morning, but spent another afternoon looking at some of Ben Carr’s cartoons and artwork. If all goes to plan, I’ll be collaborating on some new cartoons and animations with him soon! 😀
After leaving Ben’s, I had an hour to wait before the next bus so I popped over to The Harbour House to have a look at their Open Exhibition. The theme this time was “Blue” and it was brilliant to see so many pieces from local artists (including a few from one of my work colleagues, Ian)! I highly recommend a visit. Entry is free and the quality of work is amazing!
It’s been a productive cartooning day… sorry to end it on such an angry note! 😛
On the subject of notes, I’d really appreciate it if I could have a few more likes on the Sterry Cartoons facebook page. Sorry to ask – I’m hoping to get enough people involved so that we can have some really good competitions and giveaways!
This is an idea I’ve had for a while, and I’m sure someone else must have done it, but I thought it would be good drawing practice anyway! Feel free to comment with links if you’ve seen/drawn anything similar. 🙂
Noticed a face in the boyfriend’s bass and had to share!
I’d love to do a series of instrument photo-cartoons so if you reckon your instrument would make a good cartoon, send me a photo/link via twitter, facebook or my contact form and I’ll try to turn it in to a character and feature it on the facebook page!
Spread the word and lets see how much of the orchestra we can cover! 🙂
“Breves should not be called breves… especially when you’re a woodwind player and breving is blooming difficult.”
I realise this cartoon isn’t quite as accessible as some of my other music ones, because breves aren’t very commonly used, so here’s a chart briefly showing the note lengths (with the breve right at the top) and a link to wikipedia’s page on breves.
